This time, StyleUp invites Louis from the FLUX RÉEL HAIR BOUTIQUE to share some tips about haircuts for naturally curly person, he will share tips about latest Korean C-curl perm and how to manage messy hair.
Tips 1: Wet cut first, then dry cut!
For naturally curly, straight perm is usually the first choice when having a haircut, however, straight perm will cause split ends or even breaking off. Due to this situation, Louis suggests that it is better for naturally curly to cut their hair while it is wet first, then trim the hair again once the hair is dry. This method is to help you prevent your hair becomes a disaster if you cut after the straight perm.
Tips 2: Layered does not work, try perm first!
Generally, everyone like a refreshing hairstyle, so layered might be our first choice. However, for naturally curly, layered will only make your hair become more frizzy and thick. Therefore, go to a professional hair parlor and ask for a perm is the right way for naturally curly.
Tips 3: It’s all about hair whorl!
When it comes to bangs, not only the natural curly ones, in fact, everyone should know their hair whorl and hair movement so they can decide whether bangs work for them or not. Here are two examples for those who want a fringe. One of our editors, Monica’s hair whorl is above her forehead, for this reason, bangs will split so fringe might not be an option for her. Yet one of Louis’s friend is naturally curly and c-curl bangs looks just perfect on her. In brief, everything about fringe is case by case.
Tips 4: Naturally curly men, cool hairstyle is a must!
It is envy that slicked hair or pomade always goes well on naturally curly men, if you have super curly hair, side parted hair and a curly top or a bun is an option. For nine-to-fiver’s, you can try to perm your fringe, which looks stylish as well.
