The Queen of Curl, Ouidad, suggests looking for a curly hair expert before cutting hair short.
Dear Ouidad: I had short haircuts when I was way younger but I feel like my hair is different now and may not react well. Is there any way to pull off extremely thick, wavy hair in a short hair cut? I figured my roots were flat anyway... and I'd be willing to straighten it if it's short, since I'd be regularly snipping off the damaged parts.
A: Definitely go to a stylist who specializes in curly hair. At Ouidad Salons, we use my trademark Carve & Slice technique, which allows the curls to fit into each other like puzzle pieces, reducing bulk and allowing for a variety of hair styles for all curl types. The sky is the limit with this technique and you and your stylist can choose what cut works best for you!
