Getting a great haircut is about more than finding a perfect stylist. Your hair type, texture, thickness, and weight all goes into what styles a hairdresser might suggest for you. Your natural locks are genetically determined, but they can also determine the best cut that will look amazing on you.


Short and Curly

Coarse and curly-haired women might ask for a haircut that allows the hair to stay down and more manageable and this is best achieved by leaving it long. Shorter hair will be frizzier and often fluffier without proper products and styling. For no-fuss curls, long locks are probably the best option. It is also not a good idea to have bangs if your hair has natural curl or waves since it will be frizzier the shorter it hangs. Depending on the type of curl though, shorter cuts can actually be a benefit. Ethnic or African textured curls are so tight, that a short cut can be way easier to style. Luckily, today there are many different kinds of ethnic hair products available. From Afro stretch curl creams, to hair relaxer serums and detangling shampoos, both short and long curls are sure to astound.


Oily Hair Options

Some people have naturally oilier hair than others. The best haircuts for people with oily hair most likely are the ones that allow for quick hair care and washes. They will require more frequent washing, so consider hairstyle that will enable you the flexibility. Shorter hair works better for many, though longer lengths can be good for pulling hair up and away from the face for longer periods. It may depend on your activity level, styling preferences, and preferred length.


Through Thick and Thin

If your hair is thin and you don’t know what cut would work best, just remember that shorter is often better. If you prefer short hair, a layered bob haircut is perfect for thinner hair. Putting accents on the roots make hair look thicker, and layers will be a volume boost as well. Another idea is to use specific colors for your hair, such as auburn. For a longer cut – go for good layers and color accents.

If your hair is thick and you don’t know how to deal with it, one great possibility is to create a layered, long haircut with side swept bangs or allow your hair flow naturally but add a fantastic undercut that will not be visible at all times. These options are both great for taking off a little weight and allowing more natural swing.

For shorter hair, one of the most popular hairstyles at the moment is a pixie cut with an undercut. It looks stylish and edgy. A short to medium A-line bob would also look modern and professional. Longer and shorter hair will also benefit from layers and waves that will allow you to take care of your hair with no issues.


When thinking about getting a new haircut, one of the most important things to take into account is your personal preference. It is important to remember that your hair structure will impact how your hair behaves after washing and once it is not treated with any hair products. Your stylist will probably have some suggestions for you as well. You should talk to your hairdresser for more advice on how to keep your hair behaving well and allowing it to look good even on days when you don’t want to spend a ton of time in the morning or don’t have a lot of time to do so.
