Sometimes when we think about curly hair we often get the notion that we can only wear it one way: long. We often fail to think of all the cool, sexy, sassy, fun and funky hairstyles that we can do with curly hair; which can open up a flood-gate of new looks keeping you looking fresh, funkadelic (and I mean that in a good way), and trendy.
Here are a few of my top picks for wearing curly hair.
Yes, I know (*rolls eyes) when we think “Shag” we immediately think something hideously 70’s looking that is just not cool. Well think again; a curly Shag can be so much fun; it all depends on the cut, color, curl size, and best of all - your attitude. Here’s of pic of Bad Girl Riri, rocking a Shag, and there ain’t nothing hideous looking about it. There are tons of variations of the Shag that you can give a go.
The Heart Shape Cut
Ok, I'm officially in love with the heart shape hair cut for curly hair. However, if you are anything like me and are not brave enough to commit to getting a haircut just to achieve the shape, or if your hair is simply just not long enough to get the look, opt for a curly weave and head to your stylist for this sweet, romantic shape. The awesome thing about the shape is that is so cute it basically suits just about any face shape so you can almost never go wrong.
The Curly Angular Bob
Curly bobs are so in now; and it’s also one of my favorite looks for curly hair and curly extensions. Armed with a good stylist proficient in cutting curly hair, chopping, layering and shaping curly hair should be a breeze; giving your normal long curly hair look a fresh new fun and edgy twist.
A Tapered TWA
So you may have been rocking your TWA for a minute and you’re not sure whether you want to grow it out or head to your barber to lob it all off again. Well, before you go on ahead and sit down to shoot the breeze with the boys, check out this look: cropped sides and long and curly on top. If you don’t have the length to achieve the look, never fear, you can easily add a bit of curly extensions at the top to create this faux tapered look. The only downside to this look is that short hair seems to grow so much faster or maybe it’s that we notice the growth more than when it’s longer, so your barber visits for shape ups and trims may be a little more frequent to keep this look looking fresh and on point.
Finally, there are curly bangs. These were all the rage in 2016, and I'm still here for it in 2017. Check out this pretty Up-do that you can do with your own natural hair or again if your hair is just not long enough then fake it 'til you make it by adding a little curly clip ins.

Listen don’t get stuck in a rut with one dimensional thinking, curly hair can be super fun to wear, you just need to think a little outside the box and remember the shape is everything!
