Michelle Thompson demonstrates a one-length horizontal haircut with disconnection on chemically rearranged type 4 hair. The tutorial covers pointers on correct tension, sectioning, over-direction and disconnection. 

The final result is a perfect cut to release exquisite and manageable curls; a liberating make over juxtaposing an angular stacked form to flatter and frame the oval of the face.
