Pageboy Cut With Longer Layers
How about going for a shoulder-length pageboy cut? It will definitely suit you if you have a curly hair. The curls should be made short in such a way that they sit on your shoulders. This makes your hair short and easily manageable. You may style your hair in the way mentioned below:
- Apply a leave-in conditioner on your damp hair and scrunch the curls.
- Blow-dry the curls using a diffuser and enjoy a layered bob hairstyle with side-swept bangs.
Long Bob Hair Style
This is a fabulous hair cut for curly hair because it has strong line with lots of layering, which keeps your curls full and soft. Layering prevents your hair from being too heavy at bottom as it distributes weight among the layers. You may style your hair as mentioned below:
- Apply a good hair mousse through damp hair and brush it well.
- Style your hair as you want and use a blow dryer to maintain the shape.
- Longer bobs may appear bland if you make it too blunt. Stacked layers of hair can add dimension.
- Do not add too many layers. You can make it more edgy by thinning out its ends using a professional scissors.
Medium Curled-Out Bob
Medium curled-out bob is a playful haircut. The hair should be left shoulder length. It can be made more stylish by giving parted and streamlined bangs, but take care that the ends are not frizzed and tousled. This layered style adds more volume to the top portion of the hair, thus giving a great finish to your tresses.
How To Maintain A Curly Hairstyle
Deep Condition At Least Once A Week
Curly hair is very difficult to manage. If you have a dry curly hair, it could be easily damaged. So, it is important that you keep away from any hair care products containing alcohol. Use a deep conditioning mask (preferably homemade masks) at least once a week. You may use natural oils as well. You may apply few drops of olive oil or jojoba oil on your hair, massaging it well on your scalp and leave it for some time. Brush it well and then keep it on hair till morning. You can wash it off with a mild shampoo.
Use A Blow Dryer In Proper Way
The blow dryer can be a scary nightmare if not used properly. Letting hot air freely on your hair may dry and damage your hair and strip it off of all shine and life. It is better to let your hair air dry as long as possible and then use a blow dryer. However, make sure that you have coupled the dryer with a diffuser. In case you don’t have a diffuser, then keep the nozzle of the dryer downward. Fold your hair in accordion-style and cup it well (do not squeeze) and then blow-dry.
How To Distribute A Hair Care Product Evenly
Many of you may apply product directly to the top of your head and work it downwards. This is not the proper way as it can weigh the hair down. It is better to apply the product right on the back of your head and work it to the sides and then to the top. Use a comb to distribute the product evenly through your hair. Massaging your hair thoroughly is also a good method.
Get The Right Haircut
Getting the right haircut is very important, especially if you have curly hair. Not every hairstyle suits curly hair. It should be the one, which reduce the frizz and allow free and easy handling of your hair. Do thorough research before you select a hairstyle.
