70+ Trendy Short Curly Hairstyles for 2024

Cindy Marcus
Cindy Marcus Hairstylist, Editor-in-Chief

Short curly hairstyles can look beautiful when shorter than most lengths. The key is finding a hairstylist who specializes in cutting naturally curly hair. They should give you a short haircut with your unique curl pattern, density, texture, and head shape.

Naturally, curly hair looks shorter because your hair structure naturally coils up and shrinks the length of your hair follicle. It gives the appearance of curly hair being shorter. And it’s why I recommend that your hair cut at least one inch longer than what you want your length to appear.

Below, I put together photos of popular short curly hairstyles for women this year!

Short Curly Round Haircut with Fringe

#1: Short and Curly Round Haircut with Fringe

Consider a round haircut with a fringe. Its rounded layers give the haircut a cool and chic shape, a mix between a wedge and a bob. If you like to utilize your natural wave, the layers all around the head lessen bulk and encourage a beautiful halo of curls. Air dry the haircut, or enhance the curls with a specific product for a gorgeous definition and shine.

#2: One-Length Curly Graduated Bob Cut

For women with natural salt-and-pepper curly hair, a short bob is an excellent, stylish cut option. This cut is perfect for showcasing natural salt-and-pepper hair’s unique texture and color. The short, curly bob provides a good balance between length and volume without overwhelming the face. To style the short bob, start with wet hair. Apply a curl-enhancing serum, and scrunch the curls up to the roots. Then, air dry. However, diffusing on a low setting can help to prevent frizz.

#3: Deeply Side-Parted Curly Cut

For those with curly hair, the deeply side-parted short cut is a diverse choice. This haircut creates a clean and defined look with a deep side part. The hairstyle works best for women with natural curls or waves their texture boosts the appearance. The length of the haircut is important to maintain the curl pattern. Ask your stylist what the best length for your curls will be. To style this look, start with wet hair and apply a curl-enhancing mousse to promote definition and volume. For a faster drying time, consider using a microfiber towel to gently scrunch the hair after styling, removing excess moisture and minimizing frizz.

#4: Big Curls for Short Tresses

Big curls in short hair work well for black women who want to add volume to their texture-rich hair. Creating this style involves layering, which shapes and enhances natural hair curls. Consider a dry haircut to avoid over-shrinking the curls, which could make your hair look shorter.

#5: Curly Red Ringlets

For women with square faces and naturally curly hair, a short haircut featuring vibrant red ringlets can be a fabulous choice. This hairstyle is about enhancing the curls’ volume and texture while balancing out the angular nature of square faces. Keeping the hair long is key to avoid making the face look rounder. To style your hair like this, start with wet hair. Then, apply curl cream and setting foam. Use a diffuser to set your curls.

#13: Brushed Back Curls

If you want an elegant updo, ask for one that enhances your natural curls. A curly updo adds volume and keeps your hair manageable. Start with damp hair and apply a curl-enhancing product evenly. The curl-enhancing product works best for those wanting to enhance their natural curls. Tousle your hair with your fingers to form curls. Brushing your curls away from your face results in a stylish, carefree, swept-back effect.

#14: Glowing Curly Bob with Fun Fringe

This soft layered cut is a fresh and playful hairstyle for those looking to embrace their natural curls. The style involves shortening the hair, which lets the curls bounce for a fuller look. The fringe adds a fun and youthful touch, framing the face beautifully. This hairstyle is better suited for curly hair. It highlights the unique texture and movement of the curls. To style, start by applying a curl-enhancing product to damp hair scrunching it gently to define the curls. Allow the hair to air dry, or use a diffuser to create more volume and bounce.

#16: Dusting Cut on Curly Hair

Need to tidy your hair but aren’t ready for a complete haircut? Ask your stylist to do a dusting cut on your curly hair. Unlike a routine trim, a dusting haircut is done on dry hair. It only cuts off damaged ends. The dusting haircut is a time-consuming process for curly-haired girls. Be sure to book a complete haircut with your stylist.

For voluminous hair, the layering technique is crucial. For fullness and reducing weight, consider employing rounded layers. Use a hair diffuser and apply a curl enhancer for ideal results.

#18: Curly Pixie with Tapered Sides

A curly pixie with tapered sides is a fun and attainable hairstyle. If your hair lacks natural waves or has uneven texture, use a curling iron to create an ideal style. Ask your hairdresser to shorten the sides and back and layer the top. With this, you can keep the style or curl small sections into elegant ringlets. However, abstain from combing through your hair to maintain the separation of the cute curls.

The Rezo Bob for Short Curly Hair and for women with oval face shapes
Instagram @nubiarezo

#22: The Rezo Bob

You should get a Rezo bob haircut if you have naturally curly hair. A Rezo haircut is designed to enhance and define your natural curls. It gives you lots of volume in the crown area and helps to elongate your face shape. I recommend finding a stylist that specializes in this haircutting technique. One thing that is different about a Rezo cut is its cut on dry hair. So the stylist can see each curl and the curl pattern perfectly. Using hydrating products will help to keep your hair shiny and your curls bouncy. After shampooing, use Kevin Murphy Motion.Lotion Curl Enhancing Lotion to enhance the curls.

#23: Rezo Cut Curls and Coils

One of the best haircuts to ask for if you have curls or coils is a Rezo cut. A Rezo haircut will create volume and body and give your short hair curls a uniform look. One of the ways that Rezo cuts are different from regular haircuts is that the Rezo cut is a dry-cutting technique. This means that the haircut is done on dry hair. This lets the stylist see your natural curl pattern and length more accurately. The maintenance on a Rezo haircut is getting it shaped up every 3-6 months, and styling your hair is a breeze.

#24: Very Healthy Curls for Black Women

Short and healthy curly hair is an excellent choice for black women with long faces. Ask about keeping the length and removing some weight from the sides. This helps to avoid making the hair look too short.

#25: Messy Curls with a Deep Side Part

Messy curls with a deep side part are such a visually appealing style. If you have a natural curl pattern, you know it can appear different daily. With this shape, it will look great no matter what. Ask your stylist for square layering to benefit from the top sides and flatter top. Volume lovers, the shorter the length, the more volume you’ll get. And a deep side part will give you a beautiful bit of height in the fringe.

#26: Curly Hairstyle Without Bangs

Cut your hair into a short curly hairstyle without bangs, and you’ll love the voluminous lift. I suggest a bit of layering to create the width on the sides. You’ll want to avoid over-layering the top to keep your shape from becoming too round. Oval or long-face shapes will benefit from the fuller sides of the cut. You can create beautiful tendrils with a curl-enhancing product and a diffuser.

Short Light Blonde Frizzy Curls with Dark Roots

#27: Light Blonde Frizzy Curls with Dark Roots

Light blonde frizzy curls with dark roots are the hottest trend you will love. Having dark roots will give you a low-maintenance feel. Plus, you will get more time between touch-ups. Cutting your locks will make your hair look fresh and healthy. Once you go short, you might be tempted to be daring and go even shorter.

#28: Naturally Textured Curls

If you have naturally textured curls, here are a few tips. The best way to keep curls from getting frizzy is to get regular haircuts. Trimming your hair helps to maintain body, bounce, and shape your curls.

Ear-Length Curly Haircut with a Middle Part

#29: Ear-Length Curly Haircut with a Middle Part

Make your morning routine easier with an ear-length haircut with a middle part. If you choose to make your hair short, know that the shorter you go, the lighter your hair will become. This also makes your hair strands curlier. You will have more movement, life, and body. If your hair is hard to tame, using a product like a styling gel will make your styling routine easier.

#30: Piece-y Fringe and Layered Curls

Short layered curls and a piece-y fringe might be just what you need. The easy care will appeal to you, and you’ll be ready in minutes. You can use your fingers to put curls in all the right places. If your facial features and face shape are long, curls on your forehead will help balance you out. Round face shapes might want to bring their hair forward around your cheeks.

#31: Side-Swept Messy Bob with Permed Curls

You’ll shine bright with a side-swept messy bob with permed curls. A tousled bob is one of the most uplifting shapes. Messy curls soften facial features, and the bob length lifts you. A haircut with a great short perm is easy to manage and a fun change.

#32: Perfect Bronde Curls

Accent your face with the perfect bronde curls. The beautiful face frame and graduated layering will work best with a natural soft curl. However, if your curl is frizzy or not wavy enough, you may take the time to use a 3/4-inch iron or wand to fashion your shape. The bronde coloring is a gorgeous shade between brown and blonde and can be a fantastic accent.

#33: Nape-Length Stacked Cut on Silver Curls

If you want an easy-care style, consider a nape-length stacked curly bob cut for your silver curls. You’ll love the square layers that keep your waves tidy. If bangs annoy you, push them off your face and bring tendrils around your temples for softness. Ladies with longer faces will love this complimentary style, which works well air-dried.

Short Side Part Brunette Curly Hair

#34: Short Side Part Brunette Curly Hair

You should try a side part on your short brunette curly hair. Your hair will love the medium layers that will give it just the right volume and shape. I recommend drying in place with a diffuser or air drying to achieve the look. Handling your curls too much when drying will promote frizz. A tamed coil on a side-parted brunette is the most beautiful sight.

The top layer of the curls will create more body and volume for a bedhead style. The grow-out will be soft and subtle for a low-maintenance cut.

You can have a bronde, textured pixie with curls. Notice the volume in a curly pixie is minimal, giving you the most up-to-date shape. The beauty of short curly haircuts these days is to let them dry more naturally and organic. Make sure your hair is layered around your ears and through the back to give you a shaggy shape. Paired with bronde-colored highlights, a curly pixie is a winner.

#38: Shaggy Blonde Curls with Micro Bangs

You’ll want to try shaggy blonde curls paired with micro bangs and unleash your natural waves.

#55: Glossy Curly Bob with Bangs

This cut is a great low-effort choice for curly girls. Curly bobs with bangs require maintenance every 4-8 weeks to keep the structure of your curls and bounce on point.

If you love an undone look, a messy curly bob is right for you!

#58: Voluminous and Thick Curly Hair

Having thick curly hair can be a nightmare if your stylist is unfamiliar with how to cut curly hair effectively. If you have a lot of hair, you may be tempted to ask your stylist to use a thinning or texture shear to remove weight. However, this should be avoided, as doing so can add unwanted frizz and take the life away from your curls. Be sure to ask your stylist about alternate ways to remove bulk on your hair to create this beautiful shape on your thick hair hairstyle.

These tight ringlets are known as a sculpting dry cut. This style creates a round shape that gives you volume at the top of your head and falls into flattering round layers that frame your face. Avoid pulling, brushing, and combing your hair if you have short curly hair. Style hair by cleansing it with a non-lathering curl cleanser and conditioning it with a clean, water-soluble conditioner. Lastly, keep your dryer in a low, warm setting. NYC Curls by Carlos Flores and Curly World by Lorraine Massey are excellent products for cute, short, curly hair. A curly cut suits all face shapes, and tight curls or coils carry this cut very well because of their fluffiness and bounciness.
