Step by step guide on how to cut "The Channel" from Lee Stafford, myhairdressers.com
‘The Channel’ is an amazing technique for
curly hair. Soft, understated and unique. It

time consuming, but worth it as the hair cut

The second section is determined by the
side in which the way the hair swings.

your first section in which up from this you
make a rectangle section approximately
half an inch depth.

whole sectioning pattern.
