Trending Texture By Claire Noonan
Curly girls, your time to shine has come! Put down the flat iron and nobody gets bored. For a while now smooth, long hair has been the norm, but the tides have turned and texture is where it’s at. We’ve seen an uptick in bookings for texture services and messier, more lived in looks here at O2 Salon. Beachy waves and natural curls are being embraced and I’m here to let you know how you can get on board with this trend.
First of all, if your hair is naturally curly – right on. I for one was born with smooth, straight, flat baby hair that can’t really hold a curl without major product – so I’m jealous. Natural curl is a blessing and with the right cut and product they can turn heads left and right as you bounce ‘em down the street. So what’s the right cut? What is the right cocktail of products and care regimen for you? natural curls are being embraced and I’m here to let you know how you can get on board with this trend.turned and texture is where it’s at.

To start, a layered cut is a good foundation for curls. Layers allow the curl some room and prevent the dreaded “christmas tree” effect of curl on curl on curl at one length. Here at O2, we always provide a thorough consultation in which we determine the density, tempo and texture of every client’s curl to determine what cut works best for them.
Next – product. So much product. So many choices – how to narrow it down? We carry curl product from KMS, Arrojo and Sojourn with admittedly several choices depending on the finish you are looking for. Fine, loose curl? Go for something lightweight with a little bit of hold to bundle your curl – for example, Arrojo Curl Enhancer. Intensely curly hair in need of moisture and control? Try out KMS Curl Up Control Creme. Again, a consultation can be a great way to learn about your options and get some education on how best to care for naturally curly hair.
And what about those of us who weren’t born with ringlets? Permanents, products and the American Wave are here to help! For those of you looking to get a tighter curl, a traditional perm is a great option. No more poodle perms here; gentler formulas and updated curl sets allow for a more modern finish. If you are sick and tired of getting out the curling iron for a loose wave every morning, the American Wave is a great option for you. Book a consultation today to find the best fit for you!
Interested in just dipping a toe into the texture pool? Heat styling and product, along with a texturized cut are a great way to introduce some lively shape into your daily hair routine. The stylists at O2 LOVE sharing their knowledge. Unsure of what type of iron or product to use to get your desired look? Just ask! We are all more than happy to give a little lesson in styling and maintenance just for you.
