No matter your curl pattern, density, face shape, or whether you have loose waves or tight coils, short curly hair can work on everyone with a little effort.
“A style that is short and curly is easy to style and manage, but it is one that requires maintenance,” says Daniele de Angelis, international artistic director of Toni&Guy.
The 2020 London Hairdresser of the Year recipient explains how the short curly cut can be achieved.
“You should be sure to make regular visits to your hairdresser, especially if the length is above jaw level, in order to keep its shape,” de Angelis tells Who What Wear.
“A short hairstyle can absolutely suit multiple curl textures, but your stylist must adopt the correct cutting technique for the required texture,” he adds. “For example, tight curls shrink a lot, so you need to be careful when deciding how much you want them to take off. Curls are also heavy, so weigh the shape down. If you’ve got a longer length, you may find the top of your hair becomes flat and wide and forms a triangular shape like a Christmas tree! Layers will help solve this and add bounce back into your hair.”
