While perhaps one of the most beautiful textures, curly hair can often have a mind of its own, especially if it hasn't been cut by a pro. When you have the right haircut, however, you can almost guarantee your curls will fall perfectly, each and every time. We round up four of the best cuts for curly hair, below!
The Curly Long Pixie
Who says only girls with straight hair can rock a pixie cut? Super-short cuts look phenomenal with curls! With this style, the sides are kept short while the top is grown out long to capitalize on your coils. Reach for hydrating leave-in conditioners and curl-enhancing gels to keep frizz away and if you must dry your hair with a blow dryer always use a diffuser attachment.
The Curly Bob
One of our favorite styles of all time is a curly bob haircut. Have your hairdresser create a side part and add soft layers to keep your bob from being bottom heavy. Styling creams work wonders to keep your curls soft and manageable and, if the curls fall flat in the front, wrap them around a ½-inch curling wand to give them a little extra bounce!
Curly Hair with Bangs
Runways have officially brought bangs for curly hair front and center. The key to rocking this edgy style is in the cut. Let your hairdresser know you'll be wearing them curly so she can cut bangs that will blend seamlessly into the rest of your curls. A little bit of hair oil goes a long way and you'll definitely want to pencil in regular trims to keep your bangs from growing too long.
Long, Voluminous Curly Hair
Long, flowing naturally curly hair is a look that will forever be in style. Whether your curls are tight or loose, the effect of long curly hair is breathtaking. You'll want to make sure your hairdresser is trained in cutting curly hair, knowing where to place the layers to keep the cut from falling into a triangle shape when air-dried. Curl-enhancing creams, hair oils, and hydrating haircare products should always be on hand since moisture is the first-line of defense against frizz.
