After: Sharene Jones

What Denis did:

• Sharene’s hair needed more “verticality” (stylist-speak for height) and less width, so he gave it a wedge shape in back to build height.

• He incorporated her gray streak into her style by cutting graduated angles around her face.

• Sharene had a regular conditioning routine, but because her hair was extra-dry, Denis encouraged her to use a styling cream in place of the usual serum step in his hydrating regimen (see: Shameka).

Her reaction: “I thought I wanted all-over color, but I love the way Denis used my gray streak. I’ll stick with this style. It’s fun and I can do things with it.”

Products used at the salon: DevaCurl No-Poo Cleanser ($19); DevaCurl One Condition ($19), a highly moisturizing conditioner; and DevaCurl Styling Cream ($25), to define her curls; all available at devachansalon.com. Others to try: Ouidad Curl Quencher, $26, ouidad.com.
