I am assuming you mean razoring the layers as opposed to thinning shears to create texture on the ends?

My stylist uses the razor method as thinning shears are too subtle for my thick hair. The pro, amazing layers and added dimension. The con, it is a tad more difficult to curl as you have several layers/lengths to contend with.

In the end it all relies on your ability to curl hair. If you are comfortable with it then no problem. Otherwise you might end up with kinked ends when dealing with the multiple lengths.

Just a side note I have always been under the impression that razoring curly/wavy hair is not recommended as it increases frizz. Just a thought.

If you mean wear it naturally curly (with just some mousse and hairdryer) then it would be a great idea to get a razor cut, it will add a lot of texture to your hair, and take a lot of weight out of it so it will curl much easier(unless your have really curly hair, it can turn out really frizzy, but since you said wavy, you should be alright). If you mean to actually curl it with a thermal tool, then it can be a little harder since you will have have a mixture of short, and long random peices throughout the hair, which can make it hard to curl, but it is possible. Either way I think razor cuts look really pretty because of the texture it gives, and I love the whispy look it gives. I am not sure if it is different where you live, I know mostly every salon around here has atleast 1 hairstlyist that can do a good razor cut. A lot of hairstylists wont do razor cuts beause (especially the peeling technique) because they think it ruins the cuticle in the hair, which isent true.

I had a similar cut (with razor layers) but much much shorter – chin length.  If I remember correctly, it curled just fine.  It worked best when curling upward, not under, though so you probably won’t get the same kind of curls as in your ‘before’ picture.

After a rather horrible visit to a new hairdresser I got a razor comb and did my layers myself – I have thick, wavy hair and it is definitely curling beautifull now if I don’t straighten it. It twists  into lovely thick waves and I love it!

Mine curled fine 🙂 I think it depends more on your hair’s natural “ability” to hold a curl.
