Curly and wavy hair tends to behave—or misbehave—in a similar way, depending on its texture. Make sure your stylist does a blunt cut, using regular scissors and not thinning shears. A blunt cut doesn’t mean you can’t have layers—all hair should be slightly layered—but you still need weight at the bottom of your hair to help control the wave.

Be careful: Even if you love bangs, they are hard to maintain if your hair is curly. To get a similar look, ask your stylist for shorter angles around the face to give the illusion of a long bang.
