Gary Woo demonstrates a technique combining round layering, graduation and disconnection on curly hair, featuring pointers on a build up of weight, diagonal sections, over-direction and controlling texture. 

The final result is a very charming, pretty and commercial response to soft curls. The light internal shape and chosen length releases maximum curl and texture whilst maintaining suitable length and weight.
