This is terrific--thanks so much, Tiffany, for the tips! I think a lot of frustration curlies have with getting their hair cut is NOT HAVING the vocabulary to ask for what we want or tell a stylist what we don't want.

I am curious, however--why are thinning shears/razors bad? I believe I had a stylist who used razors on my hair years and years ago, but I'm not really remembering what my hair looked like in the aftermath. I believe she said it would take some weight off the curls and make them more springy--is this not true?
Fine, porous 3a with some 3b...
