Hairstyle Trends Spring/Summer 2013: The Best Haircuts For Curly, Textured, Coily Or Kinky Hair Types

Since I pulled a Karlie” and chopped off my hair, I have been on the prowl for new and fun ways to style my short and not-so-tame locks. Well, spring is here and the warm weather makes it almost impossible to create a sleek blowout without needing a second shower, so, I am taking the pros’ advice: don’t fight it, work with it!

All the stylists I interviewed said one thing: embrace your natural texture! They all promoted the idea of cutting your hair to work with the type of curls you already have – be sure to check out how to tell what type of curl you have). If anyone out there is like me, you go to your stylist who has the most amazing cut styled straight, with dreams of such a look. The truth is, it will not work. However, you can still get that cut you are dreaming of, but, with a twist (pun intended).

As we all know, the chops of the moment are the pixie and the Karlie. Both are short and tricky to achieve, but the first step is to find the right stylist. Look for someone who has experience cutting curly hair.

As I learned the hard way, when a stylist talks about Vidal Sassoon, and you have any texture, RUN AWAY! Seriously, any architectural cut and anyone who hasn’t worked with curly hair often doesn’t know how to work with curly hair when dried, how to shape it, etc.

 When you find that perfect stylist, the next step is actually listening to the professional’s advice, with knowing what you want mixed into the equation. The most encouraging advice for this season is that each stylist proclaimed that girls with curly hair could cut their hair short! Most advised that the Karlie chop was not the best look for those with tighter spirals, but those with looser curls could pull the look off.

Luca Blandi

Luca Blandi, senior stylist at the Oscar Blandi Salon, advised that curly hair would not look fantastic “Karlied,” but tweak the length in certain areas and work with your natural texture to get a similar effortless effect.

In order to get your natural texture looking great, it is important to find the right products for your hair. Blandi suggests trying a couple of products to find the right one for your texture. Also, always air-dry your curls — they fall better than when you use a blow dryer.

Another great tip from Devin Toth, director of education at the Ted Gibson Salon, is thinning the ends of your hair every other time you get your hair cut. It is also important to cut hair every 5-6 weeks — this will ensure the hair doesn’t “get puffy or go too flat at the crown,” according to Jenny Balding, a Redken styling and grooming expert.

The best advice to take from all of these experts is that you cannot fight Mother Nature, especially in the spring when it gets warmer and rainy; it is important to understand your hair and work with products that help to not hinder its texture. Plus, you know all those girls with straight hair are just jealous of a girl with free-flowing curls!
