The 5 Best Haircuts for Curly Hair The 5 Best Haircuts for Curly Hair The 5 Best Haircuts for Curly Hair

Whether you’d describe your hair as curly, wavy, coiled, or spiraled, it all boils down to the same thing. The cute cropped cuts that look seriously stylish on your friends with straight strands, won’t necessarily work for hair with more shape and texture. The struggle is real for those with curls. In order to appreciate curls for the blessing they should be, it’s a must to find a cut that matches your hair’s texture. Not exactly an easy task—but that’s why we’re sharing the best haircuts for curly hair. Keep reading to have your pick from our five favorites.

Curly Haircut Idea #1: Lob

A mane marked by a mass of curls may rule out certain cuts and styles, but thankfully the lob is not among them. The trendy style suits just about anyone, including girls with curls. With the help of a few face-framing layers, the cut can even slim a fuller face.

Follow these simple steps to style your curly haircut:

Step 1: Spritz with heat protectant. Before you can begin to blow-dry your hair, it’s important to provide your hair with a line of defense against the heat. So, spray strands all over with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out HeatSpray for long-lasting volume and heat protection.

Step 2: Smooth on hair cream. While hair is still damp, apply a generous amount of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle Curve It Curl Taming Cream. Scrunch hair gently to soften and tame curls from roots to ends.

Step 3. Blow-dry. Now you’re ready to heat style your hair! Break out your blow-dryer and blast your strands until completely dry.

Curly Haircut #2: Shag

Forcing your curls into an extremely curated cut isn’t always the best option. Sometimes, it’s better to embrace the face that curls can be messy and unruly. A shag style is fitting for the lived-in, undone texture that tends to come with spiral-shaped strands.

Follow these simple steps to style your curly haircut:

Step 1: Air dry. For beautiful-looking curls, don’t use heat on your hair every day. After hopping out of the shower, allow your hair to start air drying.

Step 2: Apply mousse. Before hair dries completely, work the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse through your shaggy strands. Scrunch to enhance your hair’s natural shape, then let your locks dry the rest of the way.

Step 3: Pull your hair into a half-up style. A half-up style is the best both worlds—it gets your hair out of your eyes while still allowing you to enjoy the look of wearing your hair down. Pull the top section of your hair into a top knot and secure it with a hair tie. Leave the rest of your length down and you’re good to go.

Curly Haircut #3: Pixie

Cropping your locks super-short may seem scary, but that doesn’t have to be the case. A pixie that’s left long on top makes for a feminine yet edgy style that’s low maintenance—isn’t that the dream?

Follow these simple steps to style your curly haircut:

Step 1: Cleanse and condition. Quench your curls while you wash using the L’Oréal Paris EverCurl HydraCharge Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris EverCurl HydraCharge Conditioner.

Step 2: Shape with hair gel. Shape and sculpt short styles with a cream-gel, like the L’Oréal Paris EverCurl Sculpt & Hold Cream-Gel. The formula combines the care of a conditioning cream with a gel that shapes without weighing hair down.

Curly Haircut #4: Long Layers

Taking risks with your tresses can be fun, but it’s not always necessary. Playing it safe can actually lead you to a pretty sweet style. Opt for a sure-fire style with long layers; your extra-long locks will help hold down curls and will flatter any face shape. Seriously, you can’t get more foolproof than that.

Follow these simple steps to style your curly haircut:

Step 1: Use texturizing spray. Spritz towel-dried tresses with the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Air-Blown Texture Mist, focusing at the roots for maximum lift.

Step 2: Pull into a ponytail. Once your hair is dry, secure in a simple ponytail.

Step 3: Finish with hairspray. If you want your style to stay put—and who doesn’t—use the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to help lock your look in place.

Curly Haircut #5: Afro

Cutting curly hair is all about embracing texture, which tends to differ from one person in possession of curls to another. When curls are tight and coarse, an afro may be the right choice for your coils.

Follow these simple steps to style your curly haircut:

Step 1: Cleanse and condition. Before you can start styling, clean your curls. Use the L’Oréal Paris Extraordinary Oil Curls Shampoo and the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Oil Curls Conditioner For an added dose of hydration, use the L’Oréal Paris Hair Expert Extraordinary Oil Curls Re-Nourish Mask in place of conditioner once or twice a week.

Step 2: Air dry. Talk about a hassle-free style—once your curls are clean and conditioned, air drying is all you need to do.
