Layering, Graduation & Disconnection On Curly Hair Tutorial

With Gary Woo
Duration29 minutes
Skill levelIntermediate


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.
