The haircut: "This haircut demands a higher elevation cutting technique to establish more volume. Scissors and thinning shears are best used to cut hair with extreme textures. Don't overextend the hair when cutting, as it will give you a false idea of the length that you will obtain, because of the shrinkage that happens with extremely curly hair," said Zeitoun. She added, "This texture is best to cut when hair is dry unless it has a much looser curl pattern; then you can choose to cut either wet or dry. Modern extreme textured hair today is worn less constructed with more free form."
Who it works for: "Curly hair can be worn on most face shapes by changing angles within the haircut to enhance each individual's features," advised Zeitoun.
Styling pro tip: "If at all possible, letting the hair dry naturally after applying your key products is a great asset to keeping healthy, natural hair. If diffusing is needed to obtain this look, then don't diffuse the hair until it is completely dry. This tip lessens the drying effect on natural hair," said Zeitoun. "Moisturizing extremely textured hair is key to the best results when wearing this hairstyle. The natural oils cannot get down the shaft of the hair because of the tight curl pattern, leaving the hair more often than not dry and dull. SOTAH products were designed for all textures and work especially well on textured hair."
