The C-shape haircut is a trendy layered hairstyle from the 90s that is becoming increasingly popular recently. It was named after its curved C-shape that frames your face and helps to create a soft and feminine look. This type of haircut is perfect for those who want to add volume and movement to their hair while still maintaining a chic and polished look. Let’s discuss everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the C-shape haircut below.

What’s the C-Shape Haircut All About?

The C-shape cut is a hairstyle with a curve, starting at the head’s crown and ending at the shoulders. This versatile haircut can be customized to suit various hair types and face shapes. The length of your hair in this cut can vary from long and flowing to short and choppy. The key characteristic of this hairstyle is the curved shape, which creates a flattering frame for your face.

For Whom C-Shape Haircut Is The Best

The C-shape haircut is suitable for anyone who wants to add fullness and movement to their hair. It is especially beneficial for those with round and square faces, as the curved shape frames them to create a perfect oval.

A C-shape cut can also be a great choice for those with fine or thin hair, as the layers and volume created by the haircut can make flat hair appear thicker and fuller.

Did you know that your way to achieving voluminous hair starts with picking the right shampoo and conditioner? We recommend you try MICHIRU Fullness Shampoo and Conditioner with senburi extract and silk protein to cleanse your hair gently, provide lightweight nourishment, and visibly thicken each of your strands visibly.

How to Ask Your Stylist for The C-Shape Cut

The C-shape haircut is achieved by cutting the hair in layers and shaping it into a curve that starts at the crown of the head and ends at the shoulders.

Your hairstylist should start by cutting your hair straight at the back, then add layers and texture in the front to create a curved shape. Razors or scissors can be used to get choppy layers for texture and movement effects.

Regularly trimming your hair is important to maintain the C-shape haircut and avoid split ends. For this haircut, it’s usually recommended to have a trim every 6-8 weeks. And, of course, styling is another important thing that will help keep the desirable haircut shape.
