This short haircut is a shaggy bob/curly shag with curly bangs. My favorite thing about this look is the airy texture and the long bangs for sure. I used a curl mousse by Bumble & Bumble and a diffuser for the finished look. This is her natural texture and I love her curls.

Choosing the right product for your short natural curls is key. Some of my favorite products are the Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, Bb. Curl Mousse. This style works really well for anyone with natural texture because styling is minimal. You can use a diffuser or let your hair air dry.

Q&A with style creator, Debbie Chirolla
Hair Stylist @ OM Studio in San Juan, PR


How would you describe this look?

This is a fun and youthful short curly hairstyle with bangs. The color is in tune with the current color trends of magenta and rose gold hair. As for the cut, I choose to leave the length of the hair and just trim the ends. I focused on shaping the tight ringlets by adding layers. I added bangs to define a better shape of the face.

The color adds depth and dimension to the cut with the OM Curls light technique created at OM Studio for safe lighting. I really like this style because it really shows that curly hair can also be fun and edgy.

Any advice for someone considering it?

Any drastic color process can change the texture and shape of the curl. The maintenance routine in your home is important for both the color and durability as for overall hair health. This trendy short haircut with bangs is best for women with curly hair. The secret is in the right products for the type of curls you have.

Flattering for Women Over 50

Q&A with style creator, Arlene Mooney
Hair Stylist @ Akada Hair Salon in Columbus, OH


How would you describe this look?

This is a classic short, curly cut with bangs. My favorite thing about this is the asymmetry that allows us to go really short on one side (and get rid of some hair) but then retains enough length on the other side to still see a lot of curl around her face.

Any advice for someone considering it?

While it can easily be a look that air dries, especially when there is texture in your short curly hair. Using a styling product is very important to help define the curl and control it from getting poofy. This curly hairstyle is good for many personalities and lifestyles, but especially for women who want easy to style hair but still want it to be interesting.
