Wavy hair can be a blessing and a bit of a challenge. If you’ve got a mane of wavy locks, you know that they can be a bit unruly at times. But with the right haircut and product, you can achieve a look that’s both stylish and manageable. We caught up with hair expert Linda Miller to get the lowdown on the best haircuts for wavy hair.

The Best Haircuts for Different Wavy Hair Types

“If you have fine wavy hair, you don’t want to go too short,” says Miller. “The weight from the length will help the waves form.” For those with thick or coarse wavy hair, she recommends a cut that’s a bit shorter, as the weight of the hair can cause the waves to stretch out.

Styling Tips for Different Face Shapes

For those with a square face shape, Miller suggests trying a cut that’s shorter on the sides and longer on top. “You can add texture to the top with a razor or point cutting,” she advises. If you have a round face shape, a cut with some height on top and a bit of texture can balance out the roundness. If your face shape is more oval, you’ve got the most options. Miller recommends working with your stylist to find a cut that highlights your best features.
