Here in the Philippines, we deal with heat and humidity all year long. As if the discomfort these bring isn’t enough, heat and high levels of humidity also wreak havoc on our hair. We’re left to deal with unruly tresses, and when you have curly hair, hairstyling becomes even more challenging. But don’t worry! Getting the right haircut along with a few hair hacks can help you. Consider getting layered curly hair and you’re well on your way to feeling lighter and more refreshed.
Best Hairstyles for Layered Curly Hair
1. Messy layered curly hair
Sometimes it’s better to just leave your hair looking like a beautiful mess. Let your curly hair loose and don’t worry about making it look perfect. You can even use your fingers to part your hair on the side. Then, just run your hands through your hair to style it whenever you go out and about.
Editor’s tip: Curly hair is more prone to getting dry and dull. Keep your hair well-moisturized by using DOVE Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo and DOVE Nourishing Oil Care Conditioner. This duo helps tame frizz and unruly hair. Plus, they are equipped with Advanced Nutri-Oils that give your hair the moisture and shine it needs without making it look greasy.
2 Classic V-shape layers
A favorite layering style, the classic v-shape layer works just as great for those with curly hair as it does with straight hair. A V-shaped layered curly hair works great if you have a much longer mane that flows through your back. Getting this hairstyle can help make your hair feel lighter. It can look very flattering for just about any face shape as well.
Editor’s tip: Make your curls look sleek and frizz-free by applying TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops before you leave the house.
3. Shaggy layers with bangs
Just because you have curly hair doesn’t mean you can’t have stylish bangs. If you want to add a bit of flair to your everyday look, ask your hairstylist to give you those shaggy but structured layers and then add bangs—whether you choose to straighten it or leave it as it is as well.
4. Curly layered bob
Short hair, don’t care! Even girls with short curly hair can have fun by having a cute curly bob. Don’t be afraid to risk getting a bob, especially if your face shape can easily pull it off. All you need is a reliable hairstyling product to keep those curls intact—or maybe, just go for that natural-looking tousled mane.
5. Layered short bob
Dare to go shorter than a chin-length bob? Go ahead and try a curly short bob hairstyle. It has a boyish feel to it, which adds both an edgy and laidback vibe to your look. Just keep your curly short hair from getting dry and frizzy by finishing with a drop of hair serum or leave-in conditioner.
Editor’s tip: Leave-in conditioners aren’t just for straight hair. They can also make waves and curls look nourished and healthy. Keep your natural curls nourished and frizz-free by applying Cream Silk Standout Straight Leave-on Cream from mid-length down to the tips.
6. Inverted curly bob
An inverted bob hairstyle consists of shorter layers at the back and longer ones on the side. It adds that instant edge to your look, plus it keeps you feeling cool especially on your nape area. It’s a versatile layered hairstyle that frames your face perfectly.
7. Shoulder-length layered curly hair
Torn between keeping your curly hair long or going short? Go for shoulder-length hair. Curly hair at this length is manageable while leaving you with enough strands to experiment with different hairstyles. Just make sure to condition your hair every time you wash your tresses, focusing on the mid-length down to the tips, so it stays smooth and moisturized.
While you may think as though curly hairstyles are limited, you’d be surprised to know that you do have a lot of options that you can try. Dare to experiment and have fun with your layered curly hair!
