When it comes to a fashionable hairstyle it used to be all about flat-ironed poker straight hair that was, lets be honest, rather dull. Today more and more people are embracing their natural hair texture and wearing their curls au natural. The best part about curly hair is that you have the option to straighten your hair if you want too, but those with naturally straight hair often have to fight with several types of curling irons and hair products to try and get those gorgeous curls you’ve been naturally born with.
There are a lot of misconceptions about curly hair: avoid pixie cuts, avoid bobs, avoid bangs, avoid humidity… well humidity and curly hair don’t mix well but as long as you have the right short hairstyle you can definitely rock short hair with your curly locks. You can go short and you can have bangs but you want to make sure its done right. Generally you should stick to razor-cut layers to thin out your curls for a short cut and if you want bangs rather than a full bang hairstyle, stick to side-swept and face framing tendrils but try not to straighten them. If you’re going to have bangs than make sure that you’re comfortable with them being their natural texture. Check out these short curly hairstyles.
