One thing that isn't exactly to do with what you asked but worth mentioning, is to ask for no razoring and thinning shears. It is a personal choice but most people find razoring makes curly hair look frizzy and stops it clumping properly. You probably already knew that but just thought I'd mention. Also this thread might give you some ideas if you haven't seen it -
