Curly Hair Tips

Nicole’s been sporting straight blond hair a lot lately, but her natural hair is light red with curls. Love your curly locks with these 4 tips for curly-haired gals.

  1. Look for a stylist who specializes in cutting curly hair. To see the natural shape of the hair, curly hair needs to be cut wet. Try layering, but avoid going too short, otherwise you risk poofy hair!
  2. Use your fingers to comb through your curls, rather than a brush.
  3. Have a few anti-frizz products (try serums or gels) to keep frizz away.
  4. Naturally curly hair is usually more fragile than straight hair, so air dry your hair to minimize damage.

Are you gonna watch Australia? I’m going to try to see it this weekend. I like Baz Luhrmann’s film making style (Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!, Strictly Ballroom).

    The curly hair tips are absolutely true! It took me YEARS to learn this stuff on my own, because no one understood how different my hair was from theirs!

    Definitely get a hairstylist who specializes… only comb (with fingers or wide-toothed comb) when you get out of the shower and are putting protective products in… and remember that your hair dries out easily, so use moisturizing products and (if possible) don’t wash it daily.

    Yay for curls!

  5. Lisa says:

    In many cases curly hair is cut dry to avoid the dreaded bounceback. It can be hard to find a stylist who does this, but for me it makes a huge difference…

    Karen.. where’s Nicole’s Curly hair? Circa: Days of Thunder

    ooh I bet that’s one “do” she can do without!!

  7. Vivian says:

    I’m with the majority here. I totally love her number TWO look. I also love number FOUR! She looked so pretty and modern yet so glamorous back in the days! But I love any look she’s pulled esp if she’s blonde or red hair. She’s absolutely beautiful all over and I’m infatuated with her!

  8. Suzann says:

    Thanks for the curly hair tips, Karen. My hair is “wavy” as opposed to curly, but once I got a great cut (once, mind you!) and my hair was CURLY after AIR DRYING. I was so amazed. The next time I went back to this stylist, he cut it differently somehow and the curls just turned into, yes, “poof.” I know there are curls hiding in there somewhere.


  9. Catheryn says:

    I agree with Lisa, curly hair is actually supposed to be cut dry, so that you can see the natural pattern of the hair and compliment each curl in it’s 3-D state.

    #9 makes her look so young!
