Curly hair thrives when it has the right cut, color and style combination. No one knows that better than, Sam Villa Ambassador, Evie Peterson @eviedzine who consistently debuts the most gorgeous tutorials. This spring she’s found a new way to refresh curls. “A defined center part with raised corners gives a whole new modern look to curly hair,” says Evie. “My daughter is a total valley curl girl.  She’s naturally curly, so the right cut and color is essential for enhancing her texture.  She’s always looking for new ways to change up her look and the defined part with elevated sides is so fresh!” She adds. 


  • Mizani Aircut techniques create pockets of openness that lighten and free thick voluminous curls. Swivel shears work well for these techniques. 


  • Baby Lights and Foilyage with Redken Blonde Lift Idol Flash Lift Lightner and 20 volume to quickly lift level 6 hair to a level 8.
  • Redken SEQ 06N to create a shadow root.
  • Redken Shades EQ 08VG to tone and shine.


  • Style wet hair saturated with Mizani True Texture Perfect Coil Oil Gel.
  • Use a Sam Villa Light Professional Ionic Blow Dryer and Diffuser to remove 80% moisture, leaving hair slightly damp to preserve silky curls.
