seriously speaking,
most of my haircuts have resulted in me coming out with frizzy hair and an uneven cut but there are hair salons that specialise in cutting curly hair but they are so bloody expensive like i dont think i can afford to pay 60 pounds for a haircut. i really want to get a devacut but its so expensive. I just want to go somewhere where someone can advice me on what haircuts suit me best, how to take care of my hair and get a decently priced haircut. help me

also.. I know you all are not stylists but what haircut and colour do you think would suit my face: https://imgur.com/gallery/zLc9FTQ

my pics are there. only two of the pics show my hair curly, ignore the pic where my hair is fluffy.

You get what you paid for, £60 is a reasonable price for a decent hair cut, pay up my friend.

£60 is pretty decent for a hair cut especially if you want it styling etc.

Go to black salons. I started about 3 years ago going and the difference is massive

You do know you can cut your own hair right? For free? Do it yourself or ask a family member or friend to do it lol. You don’t need to go to the hair salon anymore nowadays most people dye and cut their own hair at home because it’s cheaper plus if you make mistakes it’s yourown doing with no fees. Your hair looks more wavy, like 2a hair (like this https://www.google.co.uk/search?q=2a...75&bih=591)
Is your hair wavy or curly when wet or dry?
Curly hair usually have s-curls and waves are more wavy (lol if you know what I mean)
Try deep conditioning your hair and using hair masks twice or three times a week.
Also don’t use too much heat - cause near irreversible damage
And don’t dye your hair too much
I’m Black and Asian and I get my hair products from amazon and some stores, it’s really difficult to buy hair products for natural hair (Black people’s hair) because they’re all either online, expensive and in bigger cities with larger black populations
My hair is this when wet https://i.ytimg.com/vi/SXtKx8kREmI/maxresdefault.jpg
And this when dry https://www.mynaturalhairextensions....ns-400x400.jpg
Don’t spend too much money on it, a good hair routine can be achieved using the most affordable products (£10 and under) you shouldn’t be spending more than £3 on a conditioner and £5 on a comb or brush.
Check ingredients of all hair products before you buy - DO NOT buy hair products with sulfates (especially shampoos have these), alcohol (dries your hair out) and any other mineral oils or ingredients bad for you.
Watch curly hair routines on YouTube to find out which is best and find out your hair type and curl pattern and texture
Ask friends and family for help
Good luck OP 💗

i guess it is but i cant afford it
there are lots of hairsalons around my area that charge £25 and the most i could pay is about 40 pounds. £60 is more than i make in a week and theres no way in hell my mum is going to cough up that money.

Curly hair is a nightmare to style which is why most curly haired men have it cut short (or look like an Old English sheepdog). A £15 quick trim, thin and remove loose ends once a month will achieve exactly the same result as a £60 salon job unless you have it straightened. There is no easy way to style curly hair so hairdresser are not trained for it so don't waste your money.

I have this exact combo of curl types and I just trim my own hair

The best thing about curly hair is you can't actually tell if it's a little uneven :laugh: but you could always get a trusted family member or friend to tidy it up for you!

A pony tail is always a good option, and free... see if it suits you.

I have been waiting for this all my life.
Use Argan Magic, Cantu, or a spiral cream.
Argan Magic is from Morroccan Beauty Secret, at local beauty/haircare stores.
Cantu moisturizing curl defining cream is the best.
Spiral creams are anywhere
If you live in the US try Meridith´s Salon, ask for Jennifer.

Usually do it myself or have my sister, someone trained in styling curlier hair types, do it.
