Curly hair is much-envied by straight-haired women, but it can be a nightmare to control, so here’s how to get the latest, effortlessly easy hairstyles for your curly hair!
Get an expert cut
First and foremost choose an experienced stylist who is an expert in cutting easy hairstyles for curly hair. There are many specialist ways to cut the different types of curl or wave, to get the underlying shape and structure that makes curly hair behave!
Layers are popular this year and if you ask for ‘sliced’ vertical layers, you’ll get a cut that makes tight curls fit together in a way that reduces friction and makes them lie flatter.
Avoid layers that are cut horizontally as they add bulk at the tips and make it difficult to achieve easy hairstyles for curly hair.
A medium-short bob cut allows you to create several easy hairstyles for curly hair, including waves, which are simple to get with large rollers or big barrelled tongs.
For a feminine hairstyle, with a touch of Audrey Tatou French chic, try soft flowing waves that end at chin-level. Side-partings are essential for a flattering asymmetrical look and allow the stylist to tailor your bob to balance out your face shape perfectly!
Layers are important to get a face-flattering shape and they can be choppy, with fabulous uneven tips for an edgy ragged finish that follows the huge popularity of unconventional hairstyling just now.
Romantic easy hairstyles
For curly hair below shoulder length, it’s almost impossible not to look romantic! One of the best ways to get that modern boho look is to have your expertly hair layered, which will remove bulky volume and create defined curls, rather than a frequently frizzy mass!
To vary your look, try plaiting your hair before bed and sleeping on it. This is the best way to stop the night-time friction that can cause morning frizz. All you need to do in the morning is remove the plait and spread your hair out around your shoulders!
Cute pixie short black hairstyles
Pixies are riding high for summer short black hairstyles with layered looks creating pretty curly tops above loose ringlet fringes. For cool asymmetrical short black hairstyles, you’ll need a deep side parting, (or a buzzed-cut side) plus a glossy bunch of curls draped delightfully down over one eye!
And if your hair needs stronger control when the temperatures rise in summer, just braid it into a low fish-tail on one side and forget it for the rest of the day! And there’s a whole load of new designs for this year, in contemporary Bantu twists, loose braids and rolled ‘cornrows’, avoiding the hair damage that tight corn rows cause, of course.
Big hair is back
Don’t be afraid to use the amazing natural volume in your hair to create casually tousled easy hairstyles for curly hair. So stay away from those straighteners, please!
Curly shag cuts are currently one of the trendiest, easy hairstyles for curly hair – all you have to do is add some curl-smoothing product and then rough-dry your hair or leave it to dry naturally!
