 We know that when it comes to curly hair, the struggle can be very real and that, while so many people covet your tresses, you often just want to chop it all off for an easier life. This is why we’re here to save you, with full permission to crop and go. Short and bouncy curls are not only cute but really easy to manage, giving curly haired girls a range of styling options, both straight and spiral.

Tips: Because a short curly hairstyle lacks more weight to tame those curls into shape, it’s good to way the curl down a little with a good quality hair wax.

Sweeping side

Side sweeping fringes are big, but they are in a league of their own on curly hair. Think of deep side partings with curls swept to one side for a sassy style. This works so well on curly hair because the volume seemingly defies gravity – making it contemporary, fun, and fresh for a new autumn season.

Tip: Keep the exposed side sleek and tight (either by clipping or braiding) and then work to add volume to the curls for an edgy contrast. If you do dare to go big, invest in a curl cream that ‘remembers’ your perfect wave position and works to restore them, at any time of the day, with a simple scrunch.

Pastel Colour

Multicoloured pastel colouring (also known as ‘My Little Pony’, rainbow and unicorn hair) look great on all hair types, but if you are blessed with curly ringlets you best get set to take this colour to a new dimension. While straight hair allows for an obvious distinction between shades, curly hair adds a huge boost of volume and depth.

Tip: Pastel hair dyes contain a light pigment that needs some TLC with a shampoo perfectly created to protect your highlights. Seek out a colour protection shampoo which will serve to keep your locks vibrant.

Funky Fringe

If you have curly hair, you might struggle to know what to do with a fringe. Well, this coming season, know that you aren’t to straighten it, but instead, embrace it. Think of tight and springy fringes which are slightly draped to the side.

Tip: As any fringe lover knows, if it falls out of position it can be annoying. This is why it’s important to hold your fringe in place with a hard-working spray hair spray that keeps it over to the side. Also, think about training your fringe my clipping into place overnight.

Fake It

Long curly locks are always in fashion but unless you are blessed with good gentics, they are hard to recreate with appliances. This is because good curls require volume and usually extension. Thankfully, we have your back with Rapture hair extensions (Rapture hair extensions are available at Sixth Sense Salon). Fake it if you can’t make it. Read more here.
