Q: I'm contemplating cutting my hair. My hair is naturally curly like Mel B, but I straighten it most of the time. I've had it long and it's usually pretty flat. I would like to cut it short, like Halle Berry or Rihanna, but not sure it'll look good... maybe I'm just afraid to commit! I'm looking for a style that brings out my features a bit more. Can you give me some suggestions? Thanks so much! — Michelle
A: Michelle, I am always trying to keep it real with hair. Especially super-curly hair, because of the toll it takes from all the styling required to smoothen it out. The damage is a real problem and often after straightening for a while, you get so much breakage.
So I think a short cut would be incredible on you, with your natural curl quite cropped. You could go for a Halle cut as well, but it will be more styling work than this option.
There will be no worry about breakage here.
That said, a polished look always makes a woman feel another kind of real. For a smooth style for you, I see this as an option.
It is not far off the texture in your photo, so this should be familiar.
I am also digging this knotty idea for you as well.
