When I’m checking dimension, I look at the finished curl. If I can spot a dimensional piece in every curl on the head, I know I’ve really cleaned up. If you think of it, this is actually a great way to check color. 1. It’s curled so it’s 100 dry and accurate color. 2. It’s a 1×1 sample of the hair on the head. 3. It’s already pretty so you feel good about yourself while grading your own work. Who can’t use a little pat on the back for 3 hours of color, sweat, and (hopefully not) tears. Anyway, here’s a curl I like… Tell it it’s pretty.
