    Awesome cut. Are you in the Tampa area.👍

    This was a great curly cut, came out better than my deva cut! …but not sure how the "straightened" AKA gently-curled-at-the-end-classic-90’s-layered look would differ from any other dry curly cut that has random different lengths; this end result also has several random lengths that just blend nicely in the gentle wave/curl?
    I’m saying this style could be successful with any type of curly cut.

    Point cutting makes my curly hair more frizzy. Everytime!

    Please come and open a salon in London uk. Bad curly hair stylists here.

    I would of liked to have see it natural curly ,Not  blow dried

  6. Maria Bravo on November 26, 2020 at 9:23 pm

    Her natural hair is curly. Why would you straighten it?!?

  7. hilaezra85 on November 26, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    There is nothing on your site on how to finish the haircut like you say in this video

  8. L J on November 26, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Asian women most of them have lovely long hair, would never cut it this short no matter their age and it doesn’t make them look old or look silly.

  9. Kerryanne on November 26, 2020 at 9:24 pm

    Just curious as to why you would wet the hair if its curly? It doesn’t act the same way as dry and will turn out very different after her next wash. I know for my curly hair, you wet it and it goes basically totally straight, it seems much longer than it actually ends up being since I have ringlets. Not to mention the overall shape will appear very different. I’ve always had wet cuts and it ruins the curl pattern every time, I wish hairdressers would stop doing it this way.

    It’s very refreshing to see an actual hairdresser who can do curly hair. I swear most one them are ignorant… one of them told my sister she’s got kinky hair… she’s got 3A hair texture…

  11. Allison's Edibles on November 26, 2020 at 9:26 pm

    This is not the only way to cut curly hair.. If you know your angles and how to cut proper layers and how to ppont cut the ends a curly hair cut is not difficult

  12. erika on November 26, 2020 at 9:27 pm

    Never cut wet curly hair !

  13. jehst' on November 26, 2020 at 9:28 pm

    She is way hotter with curly hair.

  14. MARICELA SAUCEDO on November 26, 2020 at 9:29 pm

    Sorry, I want to ask something. Who knows if this creame is really effective?

  15. Carla D'Amico on November 26, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    Hello can this cut be made on a wavier curl pattern? Say 2c, 3a? Greetings from Argentina

  16. Danielle W on November 26, 2020 at 9:30 pm

    This is interesting and looks nice curly at the end as well as straight. I JUST had my color done, hairs shoulder length, lowlights & highlights and needed my ends trimmed. The stylist had done my hair one time before and did a good job. That time was $200, this time was $200 also, except this time she point cut my ends when I told her explicitly, blunt ends only. I have fine, heavy density 3a hair and I have to have those ends with friends or the ends get tangled, curly up and can not hold the style i want. I have had the worst experiences in the past 3 yrs my hair has not gained length due to major mistakes by stylists. I sort of got a little lecture when I went back yesterday for a tiny fix on the ends due to the stylist now taking me back 8 months of growth. The top level who fixed it said I need to not try to learn their stylist terms to use to tell them how to cut my hair and that I should not tell them to NEVER point cut my hair bc curly hair can be point cut. She was okay with how she said it but started it with….not sure how to say this but….Seriously,…If I am paying $200 for right at shoulder length hair, I will expect them to know my hair, to be understanding & give a good quality cut and service,…period!

    your shit hair dresser

  19. Ashley Young on November 26, 2020 at 9:34 pm

    This would have been a more valuable demo if her hair was actually curly afterward lol

  20. fairskyze on November 26, 2020 at 9:36 pm

    Had a recommend stylist deep point cut my curly hair today. I told her I didn’t want it but she insisted it was appropriate. Oh boy. How maddening.

  21. MF on November 26, 2020 at 9:38 pm

    I can’t fin anyone that can cut my hair properly! They all do it as itf my hair was straight! I want to learn to do it my self, do you think that’s possibly?

  22. Bunjeonny on November 26, 2020 at 9:39 pm

    My hair was curly when I was a kid but I cut the curls off because people bullied me for it and now the curls won’t come back, I want them backkk! 😔😭😭

  23. Dawn Rogers on November 26, 2020 at 9:40 pm

    I have curly frizzy hair and the only way I get my hair cut is if I straighten it. I have not found anyone that can cut my hair right curly so the only way I can wear my hair is straight. Ugh!

  24. Karol Archer on November 26, 2020 at 9:42 pm

    I have my curly hair wet cut too so that I can wear it curly or smooth. No way am I letting someone hack into my hair dry. I know a lot of ladies swear by that technique, but I also hear of horror stories too. My stylist doesn’t rock the C like this video, but I think I’ll show it to her. I am still trying to figure out how to out facing framing curls in my hair.

  25. :] on November 26, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Hopefully i wont fuck my hair up

  26. Tammy Aswell on November 26, 2020 at 9:44 pm

    Wish you could cut my hair. Love this.❤️

    “From that crown section we put layers in” you said that but never mentioned it prior so how did you do that..?

  29. Alexander Berger Der Lockenspezialist on November 26, 2020 at 9:49 pm

    thank you for the video @derlockenspezialist

  30. Jackie Brummer on November 26, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Hi, I would love for you to cut my hair are u taking new clients.. I’m a flight attendant so it’s easy for me to travel to you thanks

  31. Ariana Rose on November 26, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Guysssss, the thing is if she would cut it dry, all the layers would be looking weird when she straightens her hair.

  32. Adam Karelius on November 26, 2020 at 9:50 pm

    Controlled chaos! 🤣

    I’m trying to learn how to control my little girl’s chaos! 🤪

  33. Makeda Bullock Floyd on November 26, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    I love this!! Thank you!!! It’s so hard to find people who know how to cut curly hair, especially my texture (4B/4C). I’ve never successfully given myself a haircut before, but I decided to give this a try and it came out sooo well!!! Took a while, but simple easy to follow and totally worked even though this girl’s hair is finer and looser curls. I was even able to follow this cutting structure to create a pretty different hair shape/style.

  34. Ginger Cameron Ford Crouch on November 26, 2020 at 9:52 pm

    Will this cut work for all curlies/wavies?

    Mines nice and long no layers no fringe, long hair is a woman’s glory.

  37. Rodi Planck on November 26, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    So….the curly results?

  38. Anne Brigando on November 26, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Are there any Controlled Chaos certified stylists in the New Jersey area ?

  39. Amber V. on November 26, 2020 at 10:02 pm

    So, I tried this on my daughter. Seems to have done the job. Letting it air dry to see real results. Thanks for the video!

  40. Wanda P on November 26, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    Looks Fabulous

  41. Emilee Lynette on November 26, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Looks amazing. Been trying to pay for a cut like that for 25 years. As easy as you make it look, I keep finding people who find it just as impossible!

  42. rockmom h on November 26, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    I went to a Deva hair salon, I need my hair fixed because I was a victim of a bad haircut at a previous salon. The new stylist dry cut my hair, not a lot was cut. I thought she was going even it after she washed it she didn’t cut it instead put product in my hair and sent me on my way. Looks just like it did after she cut it. $75 and nothing done, I still have my bad haircut. 😢

  43. Anne Welch on November 26, 2020 at 10:05 pm

    What are the benefits of a Controlled Chaos haircut vs. a dry cut?

  44. librever68 on November 26, 2020 at 10:06 pm

    I’m going to save the video for my new hairdresser; My hair was the same length, I had the same hairdresser for +10 years( He has outstanding reputation ok) but last time ruin it my curls cutting super short, after I told him I want the same thing at the video, he did mens hair cut on me; now I have to deal with my witch hair OMG. so be careful girls I don’t want any body had the same awful experience; have to wait @ least 2 years to have my curls back at the right length.

  45. jeonsxluv on November 26, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    I wanna do this cut on myself but-

  46. Mari Mil on November 26, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    Wow you did great job. I can’t find hairstylist who knows how to cut curly hair anymore. It’s real struggle

  47. Kaash Kaash on November 26, 2020 at 10:12 pm

    Very clear tutorial! Love love love your hair color!

  48. bounty42 on November 26, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    Are there any stylists who can do this in the Atlanta area?

  49. YUMMY CUPCAKES on November 26, 2020 at 10:14 pm

    AMAZING 💗💗💗💗💗

  50. Monique Daskalakis on November 26, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    I have not read thru other comments but I just wonder why the hair has to be blow dried straight.
    I thought this was going to be a video on cutting curly hair to allow it to be curly!?!
