@prettyinpink11:  what type of curls do you have? some people say they have really curly hair but it’s only loose curls. 

curly to me is tight ringlets. 

I have very very curly hair (mix chick hair!), I can’t say there is much that you can do that can get you a noticable change with small changes. You could chop it all short….how long is your hair now?

@prettyinpink11:  I like pulling my hair into low pigtails during the summer.

@prettyinpink11:  I have Long layers and the front is angled. When it put it up in a high ponytail in the summer cute little corkscrew tendrils hang down here and there.

My stylist sticks with the same basic elements that work for me: no bangs, long layers, and no longer than my shoulder blades for overall length. It does limit my options, but I’d rather go with what works that be all crazy experimental. So we play with my color instead. We just did a warm overall color and I am amazed at how much the change has brightened my look. It wasn’t a dramatic change, but it’s had a dramatic effect.

@lovekiss:  sounds exactly like my hair! I, too, have started playing with color in the form of highlights to change up my look. As much as I’d love something different, I’d hate to deviate from the great haircut I have that took so long to figure out.

@prettyinpink11:  I have frizzy curly/super wavy (depending on what type of conditioner I use and the temp/humidity outside) hair and I use a 1″ straightening iron tk curl it. It makes for really bouncy, soft romantic curls (and can achieve a million different types!) that last all day (even sleeping on it for a few nights!) (: it’s easy to do, too. 

 

here’s a tutorial (very simple) on how to do this. I just use an inexpensive revlon flat iron turned up to the hottest setting so it’ll work on my thick hair. I think it’s fun to see how it turns out since it’s different every time! The bonus is it’s softer, and easier to maintain for updos, or throw it in a bun if I’m cleaning or hot (:

I have rather curly hair (curl type 3a) and I find that going to a salon that does the curly girl dry hair cut is the best. It definitely makes a dramatic difference in shape and getting you a fun style. It’s not something that you can really just post a photo of because it’s completely unique to your face shape and curl pattern.

 

Word of warning: it’s not the kind of cut you can really straighten. Each curl is cut indivdually, so when it’s straightened everything kind looks like weird chopped up lengths. But if you don’t wear your hair straight (and I don’t either) then it’s a great choice.

i hate my curls unless my hair is long, so unfortunately only one style works for me. If i have it short i just straighten it. Lately, ive been putting my hair up in messy ponytails, sometimes to the side, it looks cute with the curls.

I used to just dye my hair when I wanted a change. I haven’t dyed it in years though, I stopped caring about it looking the same, as long as it looks good 🙂

@prettyinpink11:  I just looked up Ouidad — it sounded very similar, maybe the same thing?
The “Curly Girl Cut” is something hairstylists can be trained to do (I think they get a certification). You basically go in with your hair done curly and they just cut it to the length and shape you want curl by curl. Different salons offer it — you can typically find them through Deva Curl salon finder or at NaturallyCurly.com.
