9 Best Haircuts for Curly Hair
Put down the flat iron. Follow these expert tips for getting a great curly haircut that will work for -- not against -- your waves
Step 1: Apply a mousse with conditioning ingredients through damp hair (Mancuso loves Nexxus Mousse Plus Volumizing Foam Styler, $13.99.) Mancuso recommends using a mousse instead of a curling spray, because sprays can be too heavy and will cause hair to look overly coiled.
Step 2: Blow dry hair at the roots, then use a diffuser to blow dry the ends.
Step 3: Add a defining cream to your curls. Mancuso says, "You want to define the curls, but let some of the natural texture come through."
Step 4: Wrap sections of hair around a large 1 to 1-1/4-inch barrel curling iron. We love the Conair Infiniti Pro Professional Nano Tourmaline Ceramic 1-1/4" Curling Iron, $21.79.
