Despite what the Instagram feeds might tell you, curly hair is not a walk in the park. It takes patience, knowledge and a whole lot of product to manage well. But it also requires a good haircut to give your curls life and lift. The right cut helps to loosen and shape your waves, so that frizz can be tamed and your locks can look their best, all the time. And a great haircut will also set you up for success managing your curls in between salon visits.
