I have never seen the point in a trim. If I am going to get my hair cut, I want a whole new look. Usually, I chop and donate 12 inches of hair and then give it a year to grow out. It may sound a little dramatic, but there is very little curly haircut inspiration out there. After much consideration, I decided to ditch the angled lob and embrace layers. Thanks to Hairroin Salon’s senior stylist Kate, I woke up this morning looking flawless!
Where are all the curly haired women in Hollywood? I’m not talking about curls sculpted with hot rollers and curling irons — show me women with wild, natural curls. The kinds of curls real women have. I am one of those women, and I’m always disappointed to see straight hair dominating the the big and small screen, in magazines and on the red carpet. Especially when women with beautiful curly hair wear these straight hairstyles! If you do a quick search for celebs with curly hair, you’ll find tons of photos of Keri Russell, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift, but even these women wear their hair straight 50 percent of the time at least.
Luckily, lately, I have spotted a few lovely ladies who embrace their curly hair on and off screen and it makes me appreciate my curls even more. If you’ve got ‘em too, cancel your next blowout and join these women in flaunting your curls.

You always want what you don’t have — and girls with pin-straight hair are often super envious of ladies with lots of curls.
