Q: I have naturally thick, curly/wavy hair. I have a hard time dealing with its natural body because it just poufs out throughout the day. — Ana

Ana isn't sure how to deal with her hair's poufiness.

A: Ana, I have two options for cuts.

The first would be to shorten it:

This will work with your natural texture. With it ever so slightly shorter in the back, it will keep the illusion of length.

If you are feeling bold, these are the bangs and length that would be pretty.
