Get that curly hair braided low for the homecoming! The neat braided finish from the top down to the nape area makes a stunning, romantic effect. If your tresses are too straight and need extra movement, beach waves are the best option. To make the style long-lasting, use hair spray when finishing it off.

Textured Curly Bob

Q&A with style creator, Valerie Lester
Hairstylist / Salon Owner @ Color Salon & Spa in Morrisville, NC

How would you describe this look?

This client was looking for a change! She had long hair that had been growing for years and suffered from split ends and very tangled tresses. This cut was a fresh start. We did the traditional Deva Cut (a specialized dry cutting technique) to give her curls a new life.

My favorite thing about this long curly bob is how much it complements her face and makes her smile!

Any advice for someone considering it?

The Deva Curl cut and three-step styling technique is a total game-changer for anyone with texture in their hair. Curly hair needs moisture and particular consideration to different curl patterns to ensure a balanced cut. To get this look, you will need both.

The length of the bob will always depend on facial features and face shape and is tailored to each client. This styling process takes a little more time upfront but will last for days, therefore saving time down the road.

We used Deva Curl No Poo cleanser, One Conditioner, B-Leavin Curl Booster, and Light Defining Gel. This left her curls hydrated, defined and soft.

Curly Black Bob with Bouncy Curls

A little miss deserves a cut and style that will show off her bouncy curls with confidence! Help her embrace her natural textured hair as you keep it healthy and full of life. Subtle layers and bangs will give her locks a shape, paired with a shoulder-grazing length.

Long Layered Deva Curl

Stylist @ VAIN in Seattle, WA


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this as a soft long layered Deva Curl cut. It has just enough face-framing to keep her hair from being heavy around the face and it’s long enough to wear for multiple styles including braids, without any layers falling out.

I love this look because it is a great wash and go style!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is a great haircut for girls with curly hair to make it easy for the parent and child. Curly cuts and products are going to make styling a breeze. I tell all my clients to leave a decent amount of sulfate-free, paraben-free and silicone-free conditioner in the hair, scrunch in the product on soaking wet curls. Scrunch with a t-shirt and air dry!

This is an easy styling method to teach your kids to make the wash day go a little easier.

Deva curl recently came out with a “pre poo” called “Wash Day Wonder”, to make detangling before washing easier too!

Popular 4C Curls

Bring life back to your child’s curly hair! Nurture her black 4c curls with a moisturizer for a hydrated, healthier-looking result. Give her a shoulder-grazing cut to keep her natural curly hair versatile to more styles.

Q&A with style creator, Jessica Stellato
Hair Stylist @ For The Love of Curls Salon in Cliffside Park, NJ


How would you describe this?

These 4c curls are very thick curly coils.

The shape is an inverted cut that was cut while wet. Supercurlies shouldn’t get their hair cut while wet to allow room for shrinkage.

Ask your stylist to baby the length so you can control the shape as your curly hair grows out.

What’s your best advice?

If you’re intimidated by this curly cut, do it in winter fall months so weather and humidity aren’t factors. Don’t be afraid to use curl hair products, and lots of them!

Natural Curl Cut

Give her a captivating natural curl cut that sits right on the shoulders. Your little angle will be jolly to wear a chop that grants her brown kinky hair shape and texture. It’s easy to pull off and will complement her purest and sweetest smile.

Certified Curl Specialist / Owner @ Bounce Hair Boutique in Windsor, ON


How would you describe this look?

I describe this as a classic, dry, curl by curl cut that was designed with her natural texture in mind to create a waterfall effect on the hair. We left the layers long to give options for styling it up or in protective patterns.

I love that it can celebrate the natural texture while making curly hair manageable and enjoyable.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is perfect for anyone looking to celebrate natural texture and enhance their curls.

The most important thing for this look is products and hydration. Look for sulfate and silicone-free cleansers and conditioners which allow water to penetrate the cuticle layer and truly hydrate the hair. Anyone with any type of curls can really make peace with their hair with the right products and application techniques.

Make sure you only detangle and style while wet, using the natural benefit of water to hydrate the hair and keep it frizz-free.

Curly Lob

Q&A with style creator, Kristal Kaiser
Hairstylist @ Salon Skanda in Sandy Springs, GA


How would you describe this look?

I would describe her look as a curly lob. My favorite thing about this look is how much joy it brought her to see the potential of her curl.

By removing the excess weight and adding in some necessary layering, her hair transformed before our eyes and she was so excited.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you have curly hair and are considering this look, I’d say go for it, but find someone that knows how to work with curly hair! I highly recommend finding a Deva certified salon. You can go to their website, type in your zip code, and it will tell you where the closest one is located.

The Deva Curl products are made for wavy to curly hair and I am completely obsessed! When I say Deva Curl changed my life, I am not exaggerating. I straightened my hair every day for 25 years until I received my first No-Poo transformation service and Deva Cut. The No-Poo service is the perfect intro to the line. A Deva certified stylist will take you step by step through your styling routine, all along creating a custom kit to fit your curly girl needs.

The Deva Cut is done dry so we can see exactly where your curls fall and see the shape we’re building as we go. If you’re in the Atlanta area, come check us out at Salon Skanda. We’re a team-based, Deva certified salon, and we LOVE curls!

Q&A with style creator, Rebecca Haehnle
Stylist / Curl Specialist / Co-creator @ Parlour Hair Salon in Washington, DC


How would you describe this look?

I love creating looks for curly hair. The first thing I do is figure out what type of maintenance a client is willing to do from day to day.

I like this cut because it allowed my client to be able to wear a fun, modern, and cute topknot, or wear it down for a softer feel. I love to create cuts that allow my clients to go from look to look.

Any advice for someone considering it?

You should start by having a good cut customized for your specific curl pattern, then select the product that works best with your curls. Curly hair tends to be on the dry side, so don’t forget to hydrate those curls! Always use the recommended amount of product to set the curls in place.

Use a leave-in conditioner to hydrate your curls, then layer in a medium hold gel or mousse to add the control and hold needed for a long-lasting look. Either air dry for a more natural look or use a diffuser to add body and volume. I love to use an anti-humidity or a light working spray to finish. It provides an extra layer of protection to fight frizz and fuzz.

No matter how old you are, a great stylist and a customized cut will always make you feel like a million bucks.

Q&A with style creator, Deena Marie Vecchio
Blonde Specialist / DevaCurl Stylist @ Curl Hair and Wellness in Bryn Mawr, PA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This is the perfect look for anyone with dry, frizzy, texturized hair! If your hair reacts to humidity, the Deva Cut is right for you.

My favorite thing about this look is that it can work for a person with the slightest wave, all the way to the person with the tightest curl!

What products do you recommend to maintain and recreate this look?

Hydration hydration hydration! Curls love moisture, so the more hydrated the hair the better the outcome. For this particular curl pattern, I went right for the Deva Curl Decadence line. This line has the most hydration for the tightest curls. We used the Deva No-Poo Decadence cleanser followed by the One Condition Decadence leave-in conditioner.

For styling, we used the Deva Super Cream right on top of that leave-in conditioner. The key is to apply the product to soaking wet hair so you are not left feeling sticky or crunchy.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

I recommend this look for any client with a tight curl pattern. It’s perfect for young girls to air dry and go, or for the busy mom to send off her kids and start the day.

Men can Deva too! This cut/styling method can be used by anyone whose hair reacts to humidity.
