tell your stylist you want a 180 degree hair cut, this cut will keep your length, but thin the ends. also tell the stylist that you want your face frame thinned out with thinning shears.curly hair can be beautiful if you have the right product. ask your salon stylist for the best products for curly hair. if you choose not to spend the money on salon products, try Herbal Essence Totally Twisted shampoo and conditioner collection, and Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship split end protecter. put a few pumps of the long term relationship split end protector if your hair when you get out the shower with wet hair, this will make your hair super soft and easy to comb through since curly hair tangles easily. once you have your products in your hair, and have it looking the way you want, do not touch it! touching curly hair causes frizz and fly aways, not cute. just leave it alone and do not put your hands in it once you got it styled the way you want. but one thing i suggest you dont do is get permanent hair straghtening. this causes damage to your hair and people get perms to have curly hair! i do suggest investing in a great flat iron, my favorite is Chi, its amazing and your hair will be super shiny and silky. it is expensive, but worth it and it has a 5 year warranty. good luck, and have fun with your hair.
