Are you ready to embrace your natural curls? Long curly hair can be a great asset, but it can also be a challenge to manage. Let Linda Miller, a professional hairstylist, guide you through the best hairstyles for your lush locks.

Understanding Your Hair

Linda emphasizes the importance of understanding your hair type. She believes that curly hair is not just one type but a spectrum. Knowing where your hair falls on this spectrum will help you choose the best hairstyle for your hair type.

Tailoring Your Style to Your Face Shape

To determine your hair type, Linda recommends the hair typing system. This system categorizes hair into four types: straight (Type 1), wavy (Type 2), curly (Type 3), and coily (Type 4). Within each type, there are subcategories, labeled A, B, and C, based on the width of the curl pattern. For example, if you have loose curls, you may be a 2A, while if you have tight, springy curls, you may be a 3C.
