I need a haircut! Diva who? Curl by what?
I need a haircut, should I have a wet cut? What about a Devacut or a Curl by Curl cut? Is there a difference?
Wet cutting is a big no no in the world of curls! Each curl is unique in its spring factor and this cannot be seen or taken into account while the hair is wet. Lorraine Massey-Creator of the curly girl method often has stated “Cutting curly hair wet is like cutting hair in the dark” and this is so true!
In layman terms,
The Devacut and DevaBob are both a set of steps a stylists will use to create a fixed look.
Curl by Curl is a technique which can be used to create infinite variations of any haircut for wavy, curly and fractal/afro Caribbean curls
The Devacut is taught at the Devacurl Academy for curls in New York City, as its taught, there are two variations, the Devacut, for long hair and the Devabob for short hair. The Devacut is done with their acclaimed no comb approach. This means the hair sectioned into small pieces, is combed with fingers and pulled up as if it was a wet cut.
A curl by curl cut however is very self explanatory, created by Lorraine Massey, Curl by curl cuts are done to best suit your hair. Very rarely are haircuts sectioned in clips in a curl by curl haircut as the hair is meant to be seen in its entirety. You can cut hair curl by curl both on short hair and long hair as well as everything else in-between!
Other schools of thought exist within the curly platform including, Curly hair Artistry(also known as Cha) taught by Scott Musgrave and Wafaya Abdullah(who works closely with Lorraine Massey’s CurlyWorld Academy), the ‘Rezo-cut’ and a few others un named.
With any haircut done on curly hair, please ensure your stylist cuts your hair dry!
