This modern cut is ideal for naturally curly hair. The ends are point-cut with shears, allowing the hair to flow more naturally while looking healthy and soft. This look benefits from the ends being slightly wispy. This allows the curls to bounce and spring up in their natural state. Notice how soft layers accent a rounded shape creating the balance of the finished look.
This style works with most curly and textured hair types, and the right length is somewhat dependent on the density of the hair. For thicker hair, allow some length to create weight so the curls don’t contract in too much. For finer, less dense hair, a shorter version will work.
Although this look is fairly low maintenance when it comes to styling, maintaining moisture in the hair is a must. Use weekly deep moisturizing conditioners or in-salon deep conditioning treatments to nourish the hair. Also, a gloss treatment can help create fantastic shine to natural curly hair that tends to be frizzy looking.
Apply 2-3 drops of DESIGNLINE Olive Oil Restoring Oil throughout hair and section it into medium-to-large twists. Smooth DESIGNLINE Texture Balance Infusing Oil onto the twists and blow dry using a diffuser, touching strands directly as little as possible. Once hair is dry, apply DESIGNLINE Curl Lock Curl Charger and DESIGNLINE Mineral Salt Texture Paste to define curls.
A SECOND LOOK
A second style for this cut is to wear it smooth. Use a smoothing shampoo and conditioner to aide in the smoothing process. Follow this with a smoothing cream or oil and blow dry with a paddle brush until hair is 90% dry. Lastly, add a heat protectant and run a flat iron through hair to finish the smooth, sleek look.
