Ouidad Certified Haircutting

Carving & Slicing is a Ouidad unique haircut created 25 years ago specifically with your curls and waves in mind. It’s so unique that the US Trademark Office recognizes it with its own trademark. Essentially, Carving & Slicing removes the bulk associated with the dreaded "pyramid" look, while preserving and enhancing your natural curl pattern. This combination produces well- defined ringlets that fit gently into each other like puzzle pieces creating healthier, more manageable curls. It's only available at Ouidad Certified salons so beware of stylists claiming to "Carve & Slice" without the intense training, knowledge, and understanding of curly hair that only the Curl Experts at Ouidad Certified Salons receive.

 

Why you should choose a Ouidad Certified Stylist for your curly hair!

Ouidad Certified Stylists are trained to develop their "curl eye". They look at your hair in a three-dimensional manner. They recognize that every curl on your head is different and no two heads of curly hair are the same. Ouidad Certified stylists are trained to look for inconsistencies in curl patterns, analyze your hair texture and density and have the ability to help you create even-looking curl patterns and curl definition.

 

What is a Rake & Shake?

It is a styling method that properly and evenly distributes Ouidad product, defines curls, eliminates frizz and creates a smooth, soft finish the hair.

 

Color & Highlights

Demi or semi-permanent formulas are best for coloring curly hair. Curly hair tends to be drier, which makes for a more vulnerable starting point. Christopher Stephens uses their knowledge in coloring to balance the dimension of color on curly hair and promote tone longevity and vibrancy.
