Natural curly hair can be very pretty on its own but sometimes a new style or cut can help amplify your curls and complement your features. Three cuts that work well with curly hair are the single length, corkscrew, and the super short cut.

Single-Length Cut

Natural curly hair with tight curls works best with the single length cut. Layers can cause the natural shape of the hair to lose its beauty. This hairstyle is easy to maintain and looks natural with definitive shape. Parting it to one side or down the middle is a great way to style this type of haircut. Gel, mousse, or hairspray can help keep your curls intact all day.

Corkscrew Cut

The only difference between this cut and the single length cut is that it uses subtle layers. Thinning shears are used to add the layers.  The layers start out short at the top and get longer and longer, when it is done it looks almost like a bob. This haircut is great for women in their late 40s to 60s. This style can even make you look younger than your true age.

Super Short Cut

This cut is sometimes considered to be a “boy cut”. This cut is very attractive  on women with a more rectangular face shape. This cut is very easy to take care of. Some styles that work great with curly hair are ringlets, curly updos, wavy curls, and a curly bob.


This style is considered to be romantic, sophisticated, and fun. Ringlets are deep, tightly bound and neat curls. If you want a bunch of small ringlets, only use a little amount of hair in each ringlet. For larger ringlets use more hair in each strand to curl.

Curly Updos

Curling your hair or making ringlets and pulling it up in a bun or ponytail is all that needs to be done for this style. if you use rollers to curl your hair, you can pull on the curls gently to achieve a more natural look.

Wavy curls

This style is a sexy, loose, and mature yet playful style. It can be used for any occasion whether it be casual or fancy. This is one of the easiest styles to achieve. All you need is mousse, which you apply it to the hair and scrunch your hair from the ends up. Also, you don’t want to brush your hair afterward.

Curly bob

This hairstyle requires that you have a short or bob haircut first. If you do, you just curl your hair any way you want to. Short hairstyles aren’t  for everyone, they can bring out features you may not want to be noticeable. Women with high cheekbones can pull off a short haircut.
