Naturally curly hair varies from person to person and curl types are no different. But what most hair stylists never tell you is that there can be several different textures on one head. And, different textures mean different curl types. Contrary to popular belief, curly hair isn’t just a category or type. Although hair typing is a good starting point, there’s often some overlap. In fact, most people with textured hair have more than one type of curl pattern on their head. So, there may be a combination of, kinky, coily, wavy, and curly. It’s not so much about what curl
type you are, it’s about the type of curls you have. That’s because each curl has its own individual pattern. And, one head of hair can have many different curl patterns running through it. Just as curly hair should not be cut the same way as straight hair, curls should not be cut based on curl type alone. Yet a lot of stylists don’t know what to do with a head full of ringlets. In fact when it comes to haircuts, your curly hair specialist should take each curl individually, work with it and create your overall shape by cutting dry.
