Curly Hairstyle with Layers for winter

How do you know when it’s time to trim your curls? From my experience, it’s when they are stringy at the ends and your hair feels heavy.

My curl stylist refreshed my locks by trimming the ends and thinning out my hair. Everyone’s hair pattern and thickness is unique to them.

For me, my hair is extra thick in the back. It turns wavy fairly quickly and layers are the only thing to bring my 2c 3a curls back to life.

Trust your stylist

Before your stylist cuts your curls, talk to them about your frustrations, goals and concerns. You usually know what you need but may not know how to define or explain it. A seasoned curl stylist will understand you.

My dark brown shoulder length hair was shaped into something beautiful! Instead of just hanging around my face, my hairstyle now frames and accentuates the oval shape of my face.

As you can see from above, the results were quite dramatic. My stylist doesn’t wash and style the curls after the cut (accept for first timers). I was quite pleased with the shape and could not wait for my next wash day.
