In case you didn’t get the memo, when it comes to the latest hair trends, the shorter the cut the better. Lobs, bobs, and blunt cuts are seeing a lot of love lately, and many fashion influencers have been reaching for the scissors (or, you know, booking a hair appointment). For curly hair, the short-cut trend brings a lot of potential when it comes to revamping your style.
A shorter length, cut above the chin, can give curly textures a lot of extra body and volume. The cut can be carefree and, if you fancy, give off “sexy bedhead” But as most curly-haired folks know, it can take some work to make your curls do as they’re told. Can short curly hair be low-maintenance?
“A short hairstyle can absolutely suit multiple curl textures, but your stylist must adopt the correct cutting technique for the required texture,” he adds. “For example, tight curls shrink a lot, so you need to be careful when deciding how much you want them to take off. Curls are also heavy, so weigh the shape down. If you’ve got a longer length, you may find the top of your hair becomes flat and wide and forms a triangular shape like a Christmas tree! Layers will help solve this and add bounce back into your hair.”
