Finding the best cut or style for natural curls can take a little bit of work. The first step is to find a stylist who knows how to work with your type of natural curls. Once you’ve secured an appointment with your stylist, it’s helpful to think about cuts and styles that will work best with your curls. Styles that are suited for naturally straight hair won’t work as well for someone with tight, kinky coils and vice versa. We’ve selected some of our favorite cuts and styles for our natural curlies!
If you have thick curls, this cut is a great choice! Opt for layers that go with your curl’s texture and direction to add definition without adding frizz. Layers cut correctly will add volume in all the necessary places without overwhelming your look.
To get flawless looking curls while wearing them down, make sure to give your curls an extra boost of moisture. Utilizing an oil based product can help lock in moisture which otherwise easily escapes and leaves curly dry.
Curlies often think they can’t experiment with fun, trendy colors but that just isn’t true! While lightener does tend to do more damage to curls, a little bit of color can go a long way. If you’re itching for a change, work with your stylist to get a cool, funky look that fits your budget, time available for upkeep and offers fun options like this adorable updo.
If you’re looking for a wash and go, low maintenance cut, consider this short and sassy bob. This style works well for just about any face and curl shape. You can work with your stylist to determine length and layers to make a customized haircut that’s perfect for you and your curl type.
If you’re not quite ready to let go of your length, this cut is a great compromise. The longest tendrils still graze the shoulders, but shorter layers give the cut fullness and bounce. This look is great for tighter, more coiled curls.
