Short, curly hair can be one of the more difficult hair types to manage. But with the right stylist and products, you can master the short curly look in no time. Curly hair requires more attention than other hair types, that’s for sure. Too little moisture and your hair becomes frizzy. Too much moisture and you risk an oily, weighed-down look. The key to a polished, natural look is the right stylist and the right products for short curly hair.
1. Find the Right Stylist
Conventional wisdom says that curly hair should be grown long to draw out the curls. Not true! Curly hair, when managed properly, can be gorgeous in everything from short pixie styles to tousled bobs. Yes, it will take some effort, but the payoff will be worth it.
The right stylist is vital to achieving the right look for your curly hair. Be sure to choose a stylist who has experience with multiple hair types and who stays on top of the trends. Ask to see a portfolio that includes hair types similar to yours. Here at Deseo Salon & Blowdry, you can be sure you have the best in the business. Our hair care professionals have at least three years experience in the profession, and they are constantly learning the latest techniques and trends to help you look your best.
2. Use the Right Products for Short Curly Hair
Most products for curly hair focus on controlling frizz and maintaining a natural shape. A high-quality product can make all the difference in your hair care routine. Here are some must-have products for your short, curly hair:
1. Shampoo and conditioner
We highly recommend Kérastase’s products for our clients with curly hair. Working with Kérastase’s online diagnostic tool, your stylist can help you determine your unique hair type and the specific products that you need. One of our favorite conditioners for curly hair is the Fondant Fluidealiste, a product that helps smooth and tame frizzy locks.
2. Quality hair oil
To keep the frizz away and to maximize shine, try a beautifying hair oil like Kérastase’s Elixir Ultime Bi-Phase Spray. It adds shine and smoothness without weighing down your curls. Another great product is Oribe’s Cote d’Azur Hair and Body Oil. This luxurious, high-end product gives hair a satin glow and silky finish.
3. Styling products
For shaping and styling, we love Easy.Rider by Kevin Murphy. Loaded with vitamins and antioxidants, this product offers a flexible hold that activates curls and minimizes frizz. Keep it in your purse for a quick fix in the middle of the day or before an evening out.
4. Leave-in conditioner
Keep split ends at bay with a leave-in conditioning treatment. Our top choice is Kevin Murphy’s Leave-In.Repair. This is a restorative, nourishing treatment that adds strength and reduces breakage.

3. Everyday Style Tips for Curly Hair
Once you have a healthy foundation for your hairstyle, you’re ready to tackle the daily maintenance and styling. Here are our top style tips for managing your short curly hair at home.
1. Stay away from the brush!
Use a wide-tooth comb to gently detangle your hair. Brushes can ruin the natural curl pattern and create lots of frizz.
2. Use a diffuser when blow drying.
This blow dryer attachment works by distributing heat evenly over your curls. It minimizes frizz and adds volume to your hair. If you’ve never used a diffuser before, ask your stylist for a quick tutorial on how to use one.
3. Get regular trims.
Schedule regular hair appointments to avoid split ends. Your hair is healthiest when it’s trimmed every six to eight weeks.
