Long styled so as to sport very smooth locks, curly hair that retains its natural curls is now at the top of the hairstyle trends of the moment. Whether it is adorned with soft waves, very tight curls like those of frizzy afro hair, or even voluptuous curls, curly hair make us fall in love with its natural volume that the cut must take into account, sculpt and put to use.
It is generally believed that there are few cuts and lengths capable of pairing with naturally curly hair, yet Sarah Splinder, Director of the Academy Camille Albane and expert in the field, is categorical: “no cut is prohibited if the hair is replenished and hydrated on a daily basis ”. If you take sufficient care of your curly hair with products adapted to its nature and its hydration needs, you can afford many haircuts and even change your hairstyle according to your desires, trends, and ideas. cuts you find on Pinterest.
If there is "no limit for cuts" or length as long as you adopt the right daily care gestures to know "control and sublimate" your curls, it is still necessary to know nature well. of your curls and their way of “living” before having them cut. Indeed, it is the natural bounce of the curl that will help determine with precision the cut that is right for you, that is to say, the way in which the curly hair is positioned and comes back in place when you gently pull on it to observe its length. Depending on whether your curls are more or less loose or, on the contrary, tight: the cut should not be the same or be made in the same way.
To adopt a new hairstyle, it is, of course, necessary to rely on the expertise of a hairdresser because “the particularity of a cut on naturally curly hair” lies above all in the fact that it must “respect and observe their curls. and irregular volumes ”warns the hairdressing expert. Only a seasoned expert will be able to anticipate the spring of the curl and know, given the type of hair, if the hair will come up (and therefore give the impression of shortening) by a few centimeters once dried. . This is why Sarah Splinder explains that “it is essential to wash and moisturize natural hair, to dry it naturally, and to cut and sculpt it afterward” in order to create a tailor-made cut for each person. because each curly hair is unique!
You will understand, short, mid-length, or long cut, ultimately all lengths are suitable but the right cut is above all a personalized cut that is tailor-made to your hair type. “From Audrey Tautou’s to Halle Berry’s, the short bob haircut, and Julie Robert’s to Shakira’s for long hair” any hairstyle idea can actually work, concludes the expert.
Choose your cut
If all haircuts can be beautiful on hair with curls, it is ultimately the layering that is recommended to magnify textured hair. But with this type of hair, it should not be done in the same way as with straight hair. "The layering on smooth hair is intended to fall naturally, whereas with curly hair, it is up to us (hairdressers) to adapt to its natural fall" warns the Director of the Academy Camille Albane.
The more pronounced the gradient, the more volume it will create on the top of the head. This is why you should also be careful not to overdo the layering on your locks, even with long cuts, at the risk of the curls going up too much and giving your hairstyle a very 17th-century style.
When we decide not to / no longer straighten our hair, we often wonder if the bangs are an option or if we can possibly adopt a wick to dress the cut we have chosen, regardless of its length. . The good news is, you can "of course" go for bangs, our expert says. It all depends on “the style” you want to give the cut, the “proper maintenance” and “your desires”.
