Q: Hi, I am Mansi, from India. I got a really short cut six months ago. When I got my hair cut, it added a lot of volume to the ends.
Prior to the haircut, I had very long hair. It is curly and tends to get dry and frizzy at the middle and the ends.
I'm not sure what cut I should get to reduce the volume, but at the same time I don't want to cut it too short. I have a long face. Can you suggest a haircut that would suit my face and hair type? — Mansi
A: Mansi, I think your hair is gorgeous.
Taking weight out of the ends will decrease the thickness at the bottom of your hair, and this could be done at most lengths.
Although not all of these images are your colour or correct texture, they are good examples of shapes.
Moving your part more to the centre will work well with a long face. It will balance out how much forehead that is exposed.
This option gives you a longer length with a bit more layering:
Should you choose to flip it over to the side, the layering will give you more lift:
You can't go wrong with a classic side part and textured ends:
For something more dramatic, I really like this asymmetrical cut for your natural texture. It distributes the weight and keeps some length:
When styling any of these shapes and lengths, use a molding paste (such as Kevin Murphy Night.Rider) to keep any frizz under control.
Natural air-drying will be your best bet when using the paste.
Hope this helps!
