The Ultimate Guide to Curly Cuts and Curly Hair Care with Visuals

Curly hair is uniquely beautiful and dynamic but can be complex to manage. This guide provides a visual tour through the best practices for curly haircuts and maintenance to ensure your curls stay healthy and vibrant.



Understanding Your Curl Type

Before you can choose the right haircut or products, you need to understand your specific type of curls. Hair experts typically classify curls into four categories: wavy - curly (Type 2), very curly (Type 3), and tightly curled - Coily (Type 4). Each type benefits from different cutting techniques and care strategies.





Choosing the Right Curly Haircut


Finding a Curl-Friendly Stylist It's crucial to find a stylist who specializes in curly hair. They'll consider the dry shape of your curls since curly hair looks much different when it's wet. A dry cut is often preferred as it allows the stylist to sculpt your curls individually, ensuring that they fall naturally and beautifully.


Popular Curly Haircuts

  • Layered Bob: Perfect for wavy to curly hair, adding volume and movement.

  • Mizani Aircut: Customized for super curly and kinky hair types, this technique involves cutting each curl individually when dry.

  • Rezo Cut: Known as the "carving and slicing" technique, ideal for managing bulk without sacrificing definition.


We use a combination of all techniques to achieve maximum results.


 

Upgrading Your Curly Hair Care Routine


Washing and Conditioning

  • Cleansing: Use a sulfate-free shampoo to cleanse your scalp without stripping your hair of its natural oils. Limit washing to a couple of times a week.

  • Conditioning: Deep conditioning is non-negotiable for curly hair. It helps hydrate and repair your curls, making them easier to manage and style.


Styling Tips
