Short Curly Hair
For any woman who knows who she is, a short curly hair cut and what she wants. Nothing spells out confidence like a woman with a fabulous short curly haircut.
The contrast between a mop of beautifully cut, healthy curls and a sleek Armani suit means that your business opponent (or your date – or husband) is in big trouble. You take no prisoners.
Then there’s the ease. Wash and go hair is the envy of every woman in the car pool lane and the ladies’ room line. No extra fifteen to thirty minutes to blow-dry long hair for you! You’re in the shower and out the door in zero to fifteen minutes – faster than an Italian sports car.
A Short Curly Cut!
Ready to take the plunge and cut your curly hair in a short curly haircut?
1. Remember the shrinkage rule. No, no, no. Not guys and bathing suits – the hair on your head. When you go to a stylist, he or she will wash your hair and then cut it while it’s wet. When your hair dries, it will appear to shrink from the distended length at which he or she cut your hair when it was wet. So remember that it will be shorter than it looks at first cut.
2. Layer with care. The problem with layers on short curly hairstyle is that if not done properly you can get a tiered stadium look on your head instead of a natural flow to your curls that comes with proper reduction of bulk and width but following the organic wave your particular hair holds.
3. Length matters. If your curly hair is super-fine and curly, a very short curly do may not be what you want. Consider a medium short cut. If your curly hair is loose and loopy, a short haircut will look completely different than it will on someone who’s curly hair is fine and tight.
4. Face it. Short curly hair is clean, sexy and sophisticated. It also draws more attention to your face than a longer hair cut. So re-think your make up, your eyebrows and your earrings.
5. Product. The right products make a huge difference on hair, and an even more pronounced difference on short, curly hair.
So, let’s get to the options:
Gel - Great for short curly hair that you don’t want to blow dry. Gel and go. You’ll get sculpting power with a little gel. It’ll give fine hair the impression of thickness. And as with any product – don’t overdo it.
Pommade - From the old-fashioned barbershop to the sophisticated salons of today, this wax-based product will give you molding power. Warm it up a little in your hands and don’t use too much at once.
Mousse - Volume is the name of the game with mousse. It can dry your hair out so don’t use it for too many days in a row.
Styling crème will give your short curly hair a just-woke-up look. It may also protect your short curly hair cut from heat in dryers.
Shine spray contains silicone which coats the hair shafts and makes hair shiny, but can weight hair down. Watch out for this. Temper the amount you use for your short, curly haircut.
