Curly hair, long vs. short : which one is your favorite?

What's the best way to style curly hair: in a short bouncy long bob with bangs or long and lightly curly? Take your pick with today's Match the Look!

Short curls with bangs

The style: An instant way to give volume to naturally curly hair is to have it cut into a long bob with bangs. Effortlessly chic and original, this look puts your curls centre-stage.

The hairstyle: You do want volume, but you don't want frizz, so use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner, followed by a curl-enhancing gel such as from the Dual Stylers collection by Tecni.ART.

What the editors say: We think this hairstyle is not only ideal for moving between a bob and long hair, but it's also perfect for seasonal transitions – thick and voluminous while also light and bouncy. The blunt 'shelf'-like ends are bang on trend, too.

Long loose curls

The style: Just because you have curls, doesn't mean they have to be voluminous every time you style your hair. This is a more understated way of working your waves with a relaxed yet work-appropriate vibe.

The hairstyle: One of the best things about curls is how they show off your colour, twisting around one-another. Give your loose curls a burst of shine to really emphasise your tones by applying a few drops of hair oil like the from the Mythic Oil range. Smooth down the lengths of wet or dry hair.

What the editors say: This look proves that city-slick hair doesn't have to be sleek and straight. If you prefer a matte, textured finish, our tip is to apply a nut-sized amount of by Wild Stylers down the lengths, twisting the curls as you go.
