The Halo Hairstyle for Curly Hair: Angels Assemble

9 May 2024 | Curly Hair

Is your hair in need of a refresh? Well, you’re in the right place! Say hello to the halo hairstyle – a cut that’s all about celebrating natural curls and textures with an angelic shape that’s as heavenly as it sounds. Here’s everything you need to know…

What Exactly is the Halo Haircut?

Alright, listen up, hair trend aficionados! Picture this: the halo haircut, the newest kid on the block in the world of hairdos. In the world of 2024 beauty trends, “softness” reigns supreme, and the halo haircut embodies this aesthetic perfectly. It’s like the cool cousin of the popular shags and mullets we’ve seen strutting their stuff in past years, but with a softer touch. 

For those blessed with curls, kinks, or coils, the halo haircut is like a match made in hair heaven. Its circular shape knows how to play nice with those natural textures, turning heads and stealing hearts wherever it goes. It’s all about creating a round, voluminous shape that frames your face like a halo, accentuating your curls and coils in the most flattering way possible.

Who Does the Halo Hairstyle Work Best On?

The good news is that this cut can look great on all hair types and textures, hooray! Although, the ultimate playground for the halo is curly and coily hair textures. The unique shape of the cut beautifully accentuates the natural flow and bounce of natural curls, creating a dynamic and effortless look.

Speak to a hair stylist and they’ll be able to advise you on how to make this look work for you,  and yes, this applies to our straight-haired ladies too.

What to Ask Your Stylist For

Ready to enhance your curls with the halo haircut? We’ll take a wild guess and assume you want to know what to ask your hair stylist for. First things first, be sure to take some pics with you to showcase the exact look you’re going for. 

To create the halo look, you’re looking for a rounded shape with a heavy fringe that follows the natural curve of your face, starting at the brow and tapering down to the cheekbones, before gradually thinning out towards the nape of your neck. Face framing layers combined with layers throughout your hair will allow you to enjoy a voluminous look.

How to Style the Halo Cut

Once you’ve got your halo haircut, styling it is a breeze. To really celebrate your curls and make them pop, you should opt for lightweight products that enhance your natural texture while providing hold and hydration. 

You can either go for light and fluffy voluminous curls with a more natural soft finish or use curl/coil-defining products to bring your curls to life.

Try applying a high-quality curl cream to your locks to help fix your curls and slowly diffuse your hair on a low speed and heat to add additional texture and volume.

From their LOVE CURL Cream to their This Is A Curl Gel Oil, Davines offers a wide range of quality products expertly designed to enhance curly hair.
