Get a Layered Cut
Curly hair looks best when your stylist layers it and cuts it with a razor or texturizing scissors. Layering your hair will give it some shape, help it to frame your face and make your curls look as long and full as possible. Be sure that none of the layers are too short, because this might make your hair look poofy.
Curly hair looks great long or short. So don't feel obligated to keep your hair long, (especially if you're likely to pull it up into a ponytail every day). Curly bobs are also cute. And while we're on the subject of cuts, make sure to find a stylist who's comfortable cutting curly hair. He or she could make or break your look.
