There are many people who envy those who are born with naturally curly hair. However, once they hear a few horror stories of terrible curly hair haircuts, they’ll look at their straight hair with much more appreciation. When you go to a stylist to get a haircut for your curly hair, make sure your stylist is a curly hair specialist.
Cutting curly hair
Cutting curly hair is a skill. At Ergun Tercan, our stylists are all trained to handle your curls. To give men and women with curly hair a great haircut, the stylists have to know the different ways to cut curls so that you get the best result. If you try to cut curly hair the same way you’d cut straight hair, the results can be disastrous. Either you end up with an uneven haircut, a lopsided haircut, or that famous “lampshade” haircut that only the late great Whitney Houston can pull off. So, let’s take a look at the various ways there are to cut curls so that you can test your stylist before they pick up the scissors.
Every hair type will change a bit from wet to dry. However, no hair type will have a more drastic reaction to drying and cutting than curly hair. Some stylists prefer dry cutting, which is cutting your curls while they are in their natural position. When the hair is dry, the stylist has a good idea of how your curls like to curl.
Of course, a great stylist will be able to cut your curls while wet and give you a great cut. As long as the stylist understands the behavior of curly hair, they’ll be able to determine the best method to cut. Wet cutting will allow your stylist to shape your curls so that they fall in the right way around your face.
Avoiding the lampshade haircut
Call it the Whitney, the lampshade, the pyramid, or the triangle – either way you spin it, it’s not a haircut that any man or woman wants. A curl specialist will know how to cut your curls in the right way to make sure that they don’t bounce up into a triangle. Whether cutting it wet or dry, they’ll be able to work with the natural movements of your curls, cutting, slicing, and thinning out your curls so that they can curl harmoniously with each other without creating a bulky mess.
