Written by Cassandra PereiraMar 06, 2019

If you have curly hair, finding that perfect haircut and hairstyle can be quite challenging, right? After all, you’re usually working against your natural texture, and not with it. You’ve probably tried everything—right from anti-frizz products to chemical treatments— to tame your curls, but nothing ever seemed to work. However, you must know that you don’t have to have straight hair to flaunt a cute haircut, as there are tonnes of haircuts and hairstyles for curly hair. Wondering what these haircuts and hairstyles are? Here’s a list of our favourite ones:

Curly shag

Before you decide on the right haircut for your curly hair, make sure you lend shine and bounce to your curls by nourishing them with the Sunsilk Stunning Black Shine Shampoo and Conditioner. Its formula is enriched with Amla Pearl Complex so it will leave your hair full, shiny and silky.


Long layers

For fine, loose curls

If your hair is fine, is of medium length, and has loose curls or uneven waves, then this haircut is your best bet. However, if you’ve got tight curls, this hairstyle may prove to be a little difficult to manage, as it’ll require a great amount of commitment.


Long cut

Curly shag

For tight, spiral curls

This fun hairstyle is great if you’ve got fine-to-medium hair with curls that are tight. In order to prevent your hair from puffing up, you should keep this in mind: the tighter the curls, the longer the layers. And so, if you’ve got extremely defined curls, then this haircut, which tapers at the end with layers, is perfect for you.


Pixie cut

Curly shag

For coarse, loose curls

This may come as a surprise to you, but the pixie cut isn’t only meant for straight hair. Coarse hair with loose curls can also look great in a pixie. With long layers in the front, this haircut can give your hair some texture without making it look too messy. If you’re worried about your hair looking too short, you don’t have to— the bangs will give the illusion of length.


Layered bob

Curly shag

For hair that’s a mix of waves and curls

If you’ve been blessed with a head of hair that’s a mix of curls and waves, then this hairstyle is what you’ve been looking for. With a layered bob, you’ll manage to build some volume, as well as accentuate your facial features. Ensure you ask your hairdresser to give you a lot of layers though, as, if your hair is one length, the bob will be too heavy at the bottom, and this will make it look unflattering.


Face-framing cut

Curly shag

For tight curls

If you’ve got tight curls, and think it isn’t much you can do with them, you’re mistaken. This chin-length haircut that frames your face is that perfect hairstyle you’ve been in search for. Also known as a modern version of the ‘fro, this playful haircut can make your hair look neat and compact while giving it some shape.


Curly shag

For tight or wavy curls

For those of you with tight or wavy curls, this haircut is ideal for you. This modern version of the shag of the 70s doesn’t make your face look round, and instead, frames your face and defines your jawline and cheekbones.
