Beat Frizzy Hair With The Perfect Cut For Your Hair Type
Got frizzy hair? Don’t blame your hair, blame your haircut. From fine tresses to thick locks, don’t be scissor shy! If you want your hair to behave, then keep reading ‘cause the key is in the right cut. We’re sharing the perfect haircuts that will make flat strands full, define waves, and make curls bounce like they mean it. Whether you have thick, fine, straight, wavy, curly or coily locks you’ll find the best frizz fighting haircuts for your hair down below.
1. STRAIGHT & FINE: A long bob with blunt ends and graduated layers makes fine strands appear full and dense. Get Keira Knightly´s sleek look with longer layers in the front, giving you plenty of versatility to play with updos when frizz can’t be beat. Bonus: Bobs are super low- maintenance and ultra flattering for the face.
2. STRAIGHT & THICK: Show off your natural texture like Sofìa Vergara, with long, feathery layers that begin at the jawline. The layers in front will prevent the density of your hair from overwhelming your face, drawing attention towards your sleek strands instead.
3. WAVY & FINE: The iconic pixie crop works on nearly any texture, but Audrey Tatou, proves that wavy hair shows off this look’s choppy texture best. Make sure your layers are longer on top to tout your tousled waves.
4. WAVY & THICK: Get Vanessa Hudgens’ beachy-chic waves by slicing layers all around the head to diminish bulk while adding lightness and movement. Nobody wants the dreaded poufy, pyramid effect, so make sure your strands stay frizz-free by having the shortest layer of your hair begin at your chin or lower.
5. CURLY & FINE: Take a cue from Beyoncé by shining the spotlight on your curls in an angular lob (long bob) that’s longer in the front than it is in the back. This cut gives shape to curly hair, creating an instant style that’s so easy, you can simply wash and go.
6. CURLY & THICK: Sarah Jessica Parker’s signature curls are the ultimate in #hairgoals for curly girls. Aim to keep your locks below your shoulders, giving your curls the weight they need to stay defined and bouncy. Avoid bulkiness by starting your layers at your chin or lower, too many layers at the top will pouf your hair into a triangle shape and no curly girl wants that!
7. COILY & FINE: Type 4 hair isn’t always thick, some coily girls have low density hair that’s fine and tends to shrink up to 75% of its length. To elongate your hair, use techniques like twist outs, flexi rod sets, or bantu knot-outs to stretch it without heat. Sport a rounded TWA (teeny weeny afro) like Willow Smith to help your coils fall perfectly into place.
8. COILY & THICK: If you’ve got coarse, kinky hair then go big like Solange Knowles with this fresh take on the iconic ´70s style afro. Opt for a shape that compliments your features and copy Solange’s teardrop ‘fro that’s rounded at the top and tapered at the ears.
