Allure's top curly haircuts and how to get them.
"Fashionable hair" used to mean flat, sleek, and stick-straight. But more women—celebrities included—are embracing their natural (read: wavy or curly) texture instead of fighting it. Here, the top looks and how to get them.
Forget everything you've heard about curls and short cuts. Halle Berry's tough-but-feminine crop works on nearly any texture, and isn't as high-maintenance as you'd think. Ask your stylist for a graduated pixie style. "You don't want a precision cut," says Morgan Willhite, creative director at Ouidad. "It should be longer on top to show off the texture and choppiness." Let it dry naturally and use a frizz-control product, like Tigi Bed Head Candy Fixations Totally Baked Volumizing and Prepping Hair Meringue,to give the top separation and shine. Just be sure before you cut it all off: "When your hair is that short, you can't hide behind it," Willhite says.
