As Lorraine Massey talked about in her book, she stated that she has yet to attend a seminar in America that addresses curly hair, and that traditional American cosmetology education does not cover curly hair. This leads me to believe that perhaps the education is geared more toward uniform types of wavy or straight hair, and more attention is paid not to the texture of hair, but the volume. I know when I go to a new hairdresser, invariably they comment on how much hair is on my head.
I think a lot of hairdressers are intimidated by curly hair because they just don't know what to do with it. As Lorraine believes, where there is a wave is a curl. I think in America the belief is opposite-where there is a curl, there should be straight hair.
