Curly hairstyles will never go out of style! I don’t care who says otherwise, short hair deserves all the praise for its beauty. They’re versatile in nature which makes them that much more interesting. If you’re looking to cut your hair or try something different with your short strands, here are some personal favorite styles to try! They’ll be sure to turn heads and stop hearts in the nick of time!
1) The Curly Fro
You can’t go wrong rocking a curly fro. No matter your hair texture or length, a fro embodies the beauty of naturalism in all its complexity. Although it can be difficult to maintain, your hair texture is of the utmost importance to style and treat your hair. A hair pick will exaggerate your hair’s fluffiness without disrupting the curl pattern. Remember, shampooing and conditioning weekly are essential in retaining moisture. If your scalp is clean, your hair will flourish from its roots and out. Once you’ve mastered the fro, be sure to accessorize! Scarves, headbands, barrettes, etc., will accentuate your fro and add some style.
2) Finger Waves
Finger waves are achievable with lots of foam/gel as a molding product. Products such as The Doux Big Poppa Defining Gel and Honey Baby Naturals Really Hold It Honey Intense Hold Styling Gel ensure your curls are soft and manageable to be sculpted with a rat-tailed comb. The comb shapes and designs the hair to be as desired! This style is great all year long because it’s endlessly classy and easy to master.
3) Short Bob
All bobs are cute and flirty. Because there’s a wide variety of bob styles, the parting, coloring, and length of the bob are all up to you! You can add flexi-rods and foam to define a twist out or place your hair in Bantu knots to unravel beautiful curls! To add to this style’s sleekness, edge controllers such as Diva By Cindy Purr-fect Edges and Uhai Hair Edge Gel will naturally draw the eye from their shine!
4) Taper Cut
Taper cuts give you an edge if you desire a switch-up. If you really think about it, they’re like art on a moving canvas! Geometric patterns can be used to streamline edginess or spell out something special. Finding a stylist to ensure your cut is neat and symmetrical is important! They’re great for all short curly hairstyles, including fros, bobs, pixie cuts, fades, etc.
5) Pixie cut: Fro-hawk, Spiky
Like bobs, pixie cuts give you just enough length to try out some different styles. Pixie cuts are great for layering and volumizing to style as desired! Whether you choose to make it spiky or fro-hawked, you can’t go wrong with a pixie cut that emulates your mood.
Recently women from all over have shaved their heads to body this simplistic style. Many have chosen to make their fades pop with additional coloring, designs, even waves to emphasize their sheen and beauty. If you’re looking for something low maintenance, fades are great in ensuring your hair is bold and daring. CAUTION: Because your scalp is more exposed, use a clarifying shampoo to make sure environmental pollutants are diminished! The Original Moxie Get Clean!™ No-Foam Shampoo and Hydratherma Naturals Herbal Amino Clarifying Shampoo gently exfoliate the scalp to keep it clean and renewed to optimize the fade!
Short curly hairstyles are ideal for everyone. I’m a strong advocate in taking a risk and trying a new hairstyle, especially if you’re hesitant to do so. Short hairstyles are nothing to play with you and you won’t regret giving such styles a chance. Your confidence will surely boost in knowing you can do it all!
