7 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
If you have medium dense hair that's wavy and relaxed ...Get an extremely layered long cut.
Why the cut works: The layers begin at Jordin Spark's cheekbones, which helps to give movement to the hair, says Stephens. "It keeps it sexy, instead of just one heavy length. When you don't have layers, you have a bohemian, heavy look." Stephens says this style isn't about being neat, but about creating free, movable hair. Here are her tips on how to get this look:
Step 1: Apply a leave-in conditioner to damp hair.
Step 2: Spritz a tousling spray like Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Texturizing Sea Spray, $17.99, to enhance your waves.
Step 3: Blow dry with a diffuser.
Step 4: Wind small sections of hair around a medium barrel curling iron if you want your hair to look super-polished. Shake out the curls with your hands, then spritz with hairspray (we love Sojourn Firm Hold Working Spray, $24).
