Curly hair is a crown of natural beauty, and when styled into an updo, it can exude elegance and sophistication. Linda Miller, a seasoned expert in hairstyling, shares her valuable insights to help you embrace your curly locks and achieve a stunning updo. With her professional guidance, you’ll discover the tips and tricks to create a timeless and breathtaking updo that complements your unique curls.

Embracing Your Natural Curls

Linda advises that the key to a successful updo for curly hair starts with the right cut and style. She recommends seeking out a stylist who specializes in curly hair to ensure you get the best cut for your unique curl pattern. Layers, when cut correctly, can help create a beautiful shape for your updo, so make sure your stylist is experienced in cutting curly hair.

Choosing the Right Updo for Your Face Shape

“When choosing an updo, consider the texture and density of your hair,” says Linda. She recommends opting for a style that complements your hair’s natural pattern. For example, a topknot or high bun can work well for those with tighter curls. If you have looser curls, consider a low bun or loose chignon. For those with very curly hair, Linda suggests a braided style, such as a French braid or rope twist, which can help control volume and create a polished look.
