The Problem with Curly Hair
People who have straight hair often gaze longingly at the curly tresses of their friends. Instead, they have to spend significant amounts of time and money at a hair salon to get that naturally curly look. Interestingly, many with naturally curly hair would swap those unruly curls for sleek, shiny hair in an instant. Curly hair can sometimes be hard to love, especially if you’ve been attempting to tame it for the better part of your life. You know all too well:
The Best Haircuts for Curly Hair
Not everyone can cut curly hair. The trick is to enhance those curls without leaving hair too full or too hard to control. Look for a stylist who understands curly hair and considers facial shapes too. Salon Lucid is one of Denver’s top curly hair salon.
Curly-headed hairstylists understand the challenges of maintaining curly hair and so they are good at suggesting an attractive hair cut and reliable follow-up products to use.
Curly Hair Tip: Look at magazines for curly styles you like. Pay attention to celebrities with appealing curly hairdos.
Here are some haircuts we recommend:
If you have those beautiful kinky curls, sometimes your best bet is to try a long layered bob. Curls tend to weigh quite a bit and with those tight spirals, it can be painful. Layering it in a long bob, aka lob, you can better manage the style and weight.
If you have a natural curl (think Shakira’s early days), dramatic layers can really create big waves and beautiful volume. Stagger it for more definition and extra bounce.
Ombre hair color is so in! To break the mold of a regular balayage color style, keep those curls in place and shoot for ombre with long layers, especially if you have low curls.
We know what you’re thinking, there are cuts for frizzy hair? Absolutely. If you have curls that tend to have a life of their own, shoot for haircuts that are shorter in length, and frame your face. Own that volume!
Still unsure what will look best for you? Sometimes it’s helpful to consider your face shape as that’s usually a natural indication of what haircut will suit you. It’s also worth it to think of the products you use, and the time you spend doing your hair.
For curly-haired folks that spend significantly less time with maintenance and grooming, long bobs are usually the best go-to given they require a little amount of attention.
