Cutting Techniques and Results

Below are the many different ways that the look of short curly haircuts can be created, along with the end results they provide.

Razor Cutting: Applying the razor technique will produce a wispy, tousled, and messy sort of appearance when trimming curly hair. Due to the fact that curly hair already contains lots of texture, and some frizz, razoring will be one of the cutting methods to avoid, as this will often times generate more frizz.

Thinning: this cutting mode is known to remove unnecessary thickness also known as “Bulk”, when trimming curly or wavy hair, and can also be good for the reduction of frizz in which curly or wavy hair will generally contain.

Clippers and Combs: The clippers are best used on women with really thick course and curly hair. Cutting with clippers to achieve a very short curly haircut, such as the “Poodle Cut”, will be ultimate for this particular look.

Cutting Tips

Because of the flexibility and wave pattern, curly short hair cuts tend to have a natural graduation when trimmed. Knowing how you want the ends of your hair to lay will play a big role in the location of where you should place the cut into the curl.

  • Inward Curl: to produce the look of having your waves to curl inwards, your stylist should trim right in the middle of the wave pattern on the inside of it. This will persuade the hair to curl inwards versus out.
  • Thick Hair: Women with thick course hair are advised to trim the hair with the clippers, which makes the creation of curly short hair cuts much easier than trimming with scissors.
  • Medium Hair: can be cut with the regular cutting shears
  • Outward Curl: cutting in the middle on the outside of the wave will encourage the ends to flip outwards versus in.
  • Clippers: hair should be dry when cut
  • Shears: When using cutting shears the hair should be freshly cleansed and wet when trimmed

Stylist Note:

Apply a wide tooth comb with minimal pressure to avoid stretching the hair while damp. This is due to the fact that curly hair shrinks twice as much once dried than straight hair will.

For every inch of the hair that is cut while wet, will result in the hair to shrink twice the amount once dried when styling short curly hair cuts. Your stylist should also keep the hair slightly longer in length so that the ends results lands exactly where you wish to have it as far as length is concerned.

Curly hair has a behavior of extending, and doing this will keep the figure from shrinking too much and being too short.
