the ouidad cut


Ouidad offers the only trademarked cutting technique for curls.

In 1984, Ouidad opened the first salon in the world catering solely to curly hair, recognizing that curls require a specialized approach to identifying, liberating and enhancing their natural pattern.

Today, Ouidad trains stylists in the only trademarked technique for curly hair. 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. A Ouidad stylist analyzes each client’s unique curl pattern and texture, listens to their history and desires, and formulates a tailored plan to optimize their curls.

Only a Ouidad Certified Stylist has undergone the rigorous training necessary to master this technique, and earned the right to offer a Ouidad service.
