Chin-length curly hair creates shorter and bolder styles that boost women’s natural texture. Losing the length and adding layers gives your curls more room to bounce.
Hairstylist Mari Reed of Philadelphia, PA points out the power of layers.
“Curls thrive with layers! These create the volume and rounded shape. A layered cut also removes weight that holds the curls down,” she states.
Any textured hair shrinks when dry. Make sure to consult your stylist about your preferred cut’s length.
Curly-haired girls who are willing to put a little time and effort into styling would enjoy this look! Even the “ready-to-wear” curls need a little love to refresh them for the day. A quick mist of water with a bit of scrunching and some light curl cream goes a long way.
Reed explains, “Movement and friction on the sheets and pillows make your hair frizzy. Dampening and scrunching with a little product will allow the natural texture to curl back up.”
Curl creams aren’t one size fits all. Ask your stylist which brand works best, considering your hair type. Finding the perfect product may take some trial and error. But once you figure it out, your locks will look better when hydrated and defined.
