How to style short, curly hair

The shorter curly hair is, the better you have to be at controlling the volume! Here are some ways to tame your short, curly hair with style...

Styling a curly bob

The curly bob has made an appearance on a number of runways recently, so there's no doubt this look is on trend! The contrast between round curls and the clean shape of a bob creates a look that's both bold and subdued at the same time. This ultra-feminine take on the bob draws attention to the neckline and is just long enough to still leave plenty of suppleness and movement in your hair as you move.

Styling a curly pixie

We love the look of a curly pixie, but you should opt to keep the top slightly longer to really play up your hair's volume. Ask your stylist to shave the sides, graduating up to 3-4 inches of length at the top, for a more playful look. If it's a more androgynous vibe that you're after, consider an undercut.

Curly hair with bangs

We know what you're thinking, but yes, you can pull off bangs with curly hair! Ask your hairstylist for airy, light bangs with a bit of length so that they don't coil up too tightly. You might find you have the best control of short hair by using a hair dryer to dry your bangs, using your fingers to scrunch them up. You can also straighten them slightly for a French girl effect.

Whatever short cut you choose to emphasize your curls, remember to always use styling products suited to your hair type. Hair Trend News recommends the Curl Contour range by L'Oréal Professionnel to keep those curls hydrated. You can also try Bouncy & Tender by L'Oréal Professionnel to sculpt your curls while adding shine.
