The Frizzy-to-Fabulous Curly Hair Makeover
See how Total Beauty reader Rachael's curls go from unruly and two-toned to sleek and bouncy
The cutRachael's hair is "flat on top and super wide at the bottom," says Olson, which "gives her a triangular look." Lack of layering causes this, so curly hair types should avoid blunt cuts if they "don't want to look like a Christmas tree." To trim the tree, Olson cuts an inch off of Rachael's length to get rid of her dried-out ends, then removes weight from Rachael's curls by adding long, face-framing layers. She's careful not to cut them too short around her face as that would add width to Rachael's cheeks. Olson's snappy clean up will immediately make Rachael's curls more bouncy and less frizzy.
To maintain Rachael's bouncy curls, Olson urges her to wash and condition her hair with moisturizing products specifically formulated for curly hair as these will work best to enhance curl shape.
