If you have long hair, or just long ish, with plenty of texture, the curly fade could be perfect for you. It's a relaxed look that is still put together enough for formal attire, without seeming try-hard.
Curl definition is key with this style as it keeps the hair under control while showcasing the natural movement. In essence, this is what gives it that laid-back feel that can still be taken seriously by your boss.
To style the lengthier hair on top, you'll need a product that remains flexible, and won't leave any residue. Build-up is the last thing curly hair, or any hair, needs as it can weigh the hair down, causing it to fall flat. Try using something like L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum for a low-shine style that won't end up looking deflated.
Simply warm a small amount of Deconstructing Gum, roughly dime-sized, in your hands to emulsify it, then work it back through your hair in quick sweeping motions. Add more gum as needed; that way, you won't end up accidentally overloading your hair. Twist and tousle individual pieces of hair and curl random sections around your finger to boost the natural wave. Shape with your hands then smooth down the sides to finish.
What do you think? Will you be trying this style on for size?
