Every now and again in life there comes a time when we need a style transformation! Whether it’s a new job, a new boo or the new year, there are certain occasions that call for us to let go of the old and embrace the new. A short haircut is the easiest way to reinvent yourself, but what style is best for you? Take a look at five of our favourite short crops for Curly gals.
Fun, flirty and fabulous, a mid-length bob suits just every face shape and is ideal for Curies who have better things to do than fuss around with their manes every morning. As long as you keep the style regularly trimmed to maintain the shape, it pretty much looks after itself. No need for mousses, gels or curling wands for this bad boy (in fact in can even look better when tousled), Just get up, run your hands through it and go! Check out our featured post for more on the bob hairstyle.
Tapered Teeny Weeny Afro
Slightly tapered at the back and sides, with more volume and length at the top, the TWA is a trendy way for new naturals to wear their coils. Perfect for Curlies who are growing out a Big Chop, the teeny weeny afro is easy to maintain and will immediately bring out your facial features. Add a little colour to energise the cut, or team it with a bold lippy and smoky eyes for a smouldering evening look.
Strictly for the coolest of Curlies, there isn’t a more striking way to wear your coils then piled into an extravagant mohawk. This style looks its best when the sides are shaven low, however you can still achieve the look by smoothing the sides down with a holding gel. Our Nourishing Gloss Balm is specially designed to offer a soft, healthy hold to styles such as the mohawk. Learn more about its benefits.
Coily Pixie Crop
The shortest and most daring of our featured cuts, this coily crop will instantly transform your look from standard to standout. If your curls aren’t naturally this springy, use a pin curl method to give them extra bounce. And while your hair is short, why not go platinum or fire red for added edge!
Full Fringe Bob
Striking the perfect balance between stylish and sophisticated, the full fringe bob is the ultimate 24-hour cut. Add a side parting and smooth down the curls with our Nourishing Gloss Balm for a chic work look. For after hours, let your curls drop down willd and and play up your eyes with a pastel eye palette.
