How to style curly hair

I'm dead against any particular hair cutting "method", but, I almost always approach curly hair when dry, for obvious reasons. 

Great demo by my client Melanie after haircut in the salon @covetandcoau in Ivanhoe. 
See how she tries to "flatten" hair strands with her hands. 

After squeezing moisture with your hands ( DO NOT use a towel), diffuse dry. I like mesh diffuser by @y.s.park_professional
Or, dry naturally. 

For long hair, you may gently wrap it with microfibre towel (DO NOT rub it) then finish later. 

Multi-layers are applied freehand on dry hair.

Kate is joining the team at Green Element Hairdressing in Port Melbourne

Kate Egan previously worked with me at Zucci Hairdressing in Ivanhoe. 
Then she decided to leave the salon (is it any wonder?), moved to Image At Katan on High Street in Armadale, another AVEDA salon in Melbourne. 

And now she is joining the team at Green Element Hairdressing in Port Melbourne. Although she’s not working at Covet&Co Creative Studio in Ivanhoe, this is exciting. 

I have some clients who still hold her in high regard for her work when she was at Zucci. 

I’m looking forward to seeing how much she’s grown as a hairstylist / colourist. 

Welcome Kate !
