Stylish Medium-Short Haircut for Curly Hair
This stylish medium-short haircut for curly hair was created by hairstylist Christine Diaz of Whittier, CA. “The girl in the photo had virgin hair and wanted to keep the integrity intact. Balayage will help with that. Ask your stylist to use your own natural texture to create your own signature haircut,” she explains.
When you get to the salon, Diaz recommends you, “ask your stylist to cut one inch in length to refresh your ends, then proceed to cut your nape to simulate an A-line bob. Then ask her to cut a vertical line and then almost like a ‘C’ pattern along with the shape of your head. To avoid the ‘triangle’ or ‘bell’ shape, I gathered hair at the top of the crown area sectioning a U and cut about an inch.”
