Bob, layered cut or pony look: this is how you choose the right haircut. Plus: The best tips and inspiration for re-styling curly hair.
There are many haircuts - but not all are suitable for curls. After all, their structure is very different from straight hair, which must be taken into account when cutting.
In general, cuts that give the hair structure are recommended for curly hair and waves. Texturing – i.e. cutting invisible or visible layers – is good because it takes volume and makes the hair lighter. In this way, the curls can “jump” beautifully and do not have to be styled too elaborately in everyday life.
Especially with strong natural curls and Afro hair, the hairdresser should cut the hair when it is dry - otherwise, he cannot see how the hair will ultimately fall and the result may be too short. The dynamics and natural movement of the hair should come first.
Medium-length hair is ideal for curly hair: it's not so difficult that the curls fall out, but still long enough that you can do all kinds of hairstyles.
With the long bob, the hair is all cut to the same shoulder length. This looks especially great if you have strong curls or waves. With regard to the shape of the face, it can be said that round and square faces in particular benefit. Oval face shapes can wear almost anything anyway.
Yes, that's it: the perfect haircut for curly hair, the layered cut. Not only does it bounce with a lot of lightness, but it also flatters almost every face shape. Only long, narrow faces should opt for a haircut without layers.
Many short hairstyles get a special twist with curly hair. Since the hair often falls completely differently when it is very short than before, you should think twice about a short haircut and leave it to a professional in any case. These include, for example, the bob, but also the pixie cut.
The bob with curls acts as a soft focus for the face. The so-called curly bob is particularly popular with oval face shapes, but can also be advantageous for long faces with bangs.
Heart-shaped face shapes are particularly effective with a pixie cut. However, a pixie with curls also suits women with a narrow, oval face.
Curls also look gorgeous on long hair. The problem: the longer the hair gets, the heavier it gets. And the heavier, the more likely it is that the curls will be pulled apart downwards.
With the V-cut, the hair is cut from front to back like a V. This creates volume and brings out the best in the new curly haircut.
The same applies to long hairstyles with curls: lightness is the be-all and end-all. Therefore, the layered cut is perfectly suited to give dense, heavy hair lightness. Invisible levels in straight-cut hair are also possible. They take away the volume of the hair without really being visible.
Wearing bangs with curly hair doesn't look weird? On the contrary: many trendy looks – such as the shag, wolf cut, or mullet – look cool with natural curls and bangs. But classics like a bob or long bob can also be combined with curly bangs or curtain bangs.
It is definitely one of the trend hairstyles 2022, the wolf cut with bangs, which looks simply casual, especially with curly hair.
Originally decried as an assistant look, the mullet currently gives its wearers absolute coolness from Berlin to New York.
Shag, baby, shag! The shag is also one of the absolute trends this year. Whether for short (short shag), medium-length, or long hair, the shag is available in all variants. Of course with bangs!
You can't get enough of this look! If you have natural curls, you can also combine your bob with wild bangs or curtain bangs.
The long bob, in which the hair is cut slightly longer than shoulder length in the case of curls, can also be combined with a fringe of the case curls.
