- Curly hair needs to have layering of some sort, but this can be a minefield. Tell your stylist to give you long layers, but to keep the angle at 45 degrees and not raise you up to a 90 at any time. Reason: 90-degree angles are very tricky on curly hair and, if she doesn't know what she is doing, you could end up with the dreaded "mushroom" or "triangle" head.

What exactly do you mean by "keep the angle at 45 degrees"?
Should I bring my own sulfate-free shampoo, or is it likely that they'll have one there?
Also, how much of a difference in length should there be between the longest layer and the shortest layer?
I have medium length hair right now, and I'd like to let it get longer. The last time I had it cut, it was cut at all one length (I'll never do that again; it's driving me crazy!)
Thanks for any help and advice!
