Curly hair can be hard to control sometimes, so keeping it fairly short is a good way to make it more manageable. That said, even short curls can misbehave sometimes. The good news is that there are a few ways to show your hair who's boss!

Get the right cut

If you're having trouble getting your hair to look the way you want it to, skip the barbershop and get your hair cut by a stylist instead. Explain the look you're going for and tell them about the problems you're having with your current style. They'll be able to suggest a cut that works with your hair type and texture which should give you a more satisfying result.

Top tip - If you need your hair to look neat and tidy for work, keeping the sides tight with more bulk on top is a great way to showcase your curls without letting them take over your whole head.

How to style it

The main objective is to get your hair to do what you want, so avoid overloading it with product or flattening the natural texture.

Warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum in your hands, then work it through your hair, focusing mainly on the top section. Start small and add more gum as needed while you smooth it through your curls.

Twist and tousle individual pieces to showcase the movement, then use your hands to sculpt it into a tidy (ish) shape. Smooth down the back and sides, and you're all set!
