Put down the flat iron. Follow these expert tips for getting a great curly haircut that will work for -- not against -- your waves
Why the cut works: Mancuso says the curlier the hair, the longer the layers should be. AnnaLynne McCord's lioness mane is tamed with defined curls and tapered at the ends with layers. To get the look, see Mancuso's tips:
Step 1: Apply a smoothing serum like Pureology SuperSmooth Smoothing Elixir, $18, and comb the middle section of your hair back.
Step 2: Blow dry hair with a diffuser, using your fingers to pull hair gently to preserve the natural texture as much as possible.
Step 3: Apply a curl cream to define pieces in the front and combat frizz that resulted from drying.
Step 4: Take a curling iron like De Fabulous Clipless Curling Rod, $150, and identify some key spots around your face that you want to dress up, says Mancuso. "Curling just a few sections of hair will give you a nice mix of spirals and softness."
