Ouidad’s Carving & Slicing® is a curl-specific cutting technique that removes the bulk that causes “pyramids” and enhances the natural curl pattern to achieve well-defined ringlets that fit gently into each other like puzzle pieces. The Ouidad service is done on wet hair and a suitable cutting method for any hair type.
Clients are asked to come in with their hair washed and styled using a leave-in conditioner as a styler or leaving in some conditioner. Hair must be 100% dry for this service.
