Everyone knows the fear and trepidation that comes with looking for a new stylist to cut and color their curls. How do they know a stylist has received special training to cut and style curls?

Christo has gained an international reputation for the cutting, coloring and styling techniques he has created for curly hair. The founder of New York’s Christo Fifth Avenue Salon and the Curlisto® line of products has created a certification program for stylists and salons that receive this training.

Christo has been dubbed as the King of Curls® by Wall Street Journal and Women’s Wear Daily. He has worked with a wide range of clients, from celebrities like Debra Messing and Noel Fisher to everyday curly girls who want to learn to love and care for their natural curls.

He has been teaching his Diametrix Cutting technique to stylists around the globe for several years. The technique features the innovative “inner layer sliding texturizing cut,” which helps to reduce bulkiness and avoid the pyramid-like shape that is often synonymous with curly hair. This unique method inter-locks the puzzle-like layers of curls and will give you fantastic results every time, which work for all curl textures.

Michelle Breyer

As co-founder of, a website for curly hair she began with her business partner and friend, Gretchen Heber, Michelle Breyer helped create the leading community and resource for people with curly hair. Frustrated by the lack of information on curly hair and the limited products available in the marketplace, the duo launched the site in 1998 with the help of a 14-year-old web designer. When Procter & Gamble called three years later to advertise to the® audience, Breyer knew they had indeed created a force in the industry, providing helpful information and unparalleled expertise for what was then considered a niche market.
