Curly hair, though difficult to tame, can give you a whole new look when styled properly. And if you're itching for a new look but don't want to lose the kink nor the length, opt for a trim and practice some easy styling at home. Need a little inspiration? Here are some of the best and most popular cuts and styles to bring out the handsome curly beast in you—inspired by your favorite celebrities, of course!
1) The Curly Undercut
How to get it: If you have curly long locks, let your barber trim the back and sides of your hair to the extreme and keep it long on top. To make things even easier, better shave the sides and back to save you heaps of time in the morning.
How to style: Dry hair using a hairdryer, then lift the long part of the hair upwards and then backwards. Once dry, rub some pomade lightly in your hair to keep your curls neat.
2) The Curly Side Part
How to get it: Trim the back and sides of your hair, but maintain the length at the top. It’s just like the curly undercut, though the sides and back should not be shaved nor should be too short. Meanwhile, the longer part of your hair should be combed to the side.
How to style: Like the curly undercut, dry hair from roots up then lift to the side instead of backwards. Use your hands to rub wax to style hair to your chosen side.
3) The Wavy Fringe
How to get it: Ask your barber to give you that layered haircut (Clueless as to what that is? Consult your girlfriend; she knows it for sure). For this style, the longer your curls, the better.
How to style: Apply a small amount of curl-enhancing mousse to your damp hair and lightly scrunch it with your fingers. Wait for it to dry and voila, you're good to go! Good ol' man bun (when it's getting too hot outside), optional.
