Your hairstyle can define your personality. The way you style your hair can speak a lot about your tastes and fashions statement. If you have curly hair or straight hair, you need to choose a style depending on your overall structure as well as the shape of your face. Suppose you have curly hair, you may be under the impression that the number of hairstyles is limited with this type of hair. This is not true. You can choose from a number of styles and keep your hair styled in such a way that it enhances your personality. How to find the best curly hair style suitable for you, here we share:


1. Choose a professional hairstylist

There are a number of ways in which you can choose your style. First, you need to identify a hairstylist who is comfortable working with natural curls. If you choose a wrong person, you are going to spoil your looks completely and also wait for a long time until your hairs grows back to change the style. A true professional will be able to work well with the natural waves and texture of your hair.

2. Type of hair cut

The type of haircut you choose depends on the length of your hair and the shape of your face. If you have an oval face you may look more attractive with short haircuts. While cutting short ensure that the length of the hair is not the same all over. Cutting in layers may be beneficial to reduce the volume on both sides of your face.


3. Dry cut or wet cut

The length and style of your hairstyle also depends of the type of procedure the professional follows. For example, she should be able to use the dry cut on your curly hair. It gives the person a clear idea about the shape of your hair, the length retained by the hair etc. It will also give an idea how the style will look after cutting. If water is used while cutting, the shape of the curls is distorted for a while and the person will be clueless about the real shape of your hair.



4. Shape of your face

The length of your hair and the hairstyle you want to create depends largely on the shape of your face. If you have a round face the best style is long layers of curls. The first layer has to be of chin length to define the shape of your face. If you have a square face, choose a curly hairstyle with medium length. These medium length curls can soften the edges and highlight the natural angels.


The number of haircuts you may require in a year depends on the rate of hair growth. It may not be uniform for all. Generally, you may need at least 3-4 haircuts per year if you have normal hair growth. This will help you to maintain the layers and trim the ends regularly. Take care of your hair properly if you want to improve the health and growth of the hair. Always go to a professional hairstylist who is comfortable with working on your kind of hair for getting the best results.
