Cuts and styles for curly hair
When it comes to curly hair, layers are everything. Without layers, longer curls tend to get weighed down, which makes it difficult for your individual strands to shine. However, layers removes excess weight, allowing your strands to coil up. This cut also has a side part, which creates more volume across the crown of the head.
While this look is similar to the one above it, it's also different. Shorter layers create more volume and texture at the top, providing more visual interest to what could be a fairly mellow haircut. Below, longer layers give the cut more length, giving you something to pull back.
Here's proof that you don't have to cut all of your locks to dramatically change your look! This super chic look takes off a few inches of dead ends and adds wispy, eyebrow-skimming bangs for a huge impact! This look is very rock and roll, and having bangs allows you to mix it up leaving them down, braiding them, or pinning them back.
Curly girls have an edge over just about everyone when it comes to doing more elaborate styles. Your natural curls provide more texture and structure for updos, so you don't have to use as much product to build a look up. This braided crown updo is very easy to accomplish, and would look great on any type of curls.
There's a reason why bobs are timeless; it's because they've stood the test of time and are classically endless. Bobs look good on just about anyone and any hair type, especially curly hair. When you do get a bob, you can customize it for the right length and amount of layers. This bob would probably be considered a lob, as it's a bit longer, but it's been stacked in the back with shorter layers to give a rounded effect, with longer, face framing layers in the front.
