Interested in the latter? Touch base with your barber about which fringe approach would best suit your hair type, as well as your styling goals.
Oh, and if you’re in the curly-haired club like Daniel, prioritise nourishing and conditioning your strands. Curls can become dry, since their shape makes it tougher for moisturising sebum to travel all the way down the hair shaft.
It also pays to book in with a barber or hairdresser who is skilled and experienced in working with curls in particular, so they know exactly how to ace your next look.
- Daniel Millar’s tousled curly hairstyle with fringe is a scissor cut. Take a photo reference to your barber and ask what’ll work best for your natural curl pattern and texture.
- His hair is collar length (or slightly longer) at the back. The sides are long enough to cover the tops of his ears.
- More length has been left on top, including a choppy, textured fringe that falls to around his browline.
- Your barber may use texturising scissors to create shape and movement, as well as balance out any bulk/weight.
- They may also cut curly hair – and your fringe especially – while it’s dry. Wet curls appear longer and then spring back once dry, so this move helps to make sure your cut doesn’t end up shorter than planned.
- Start with a longer fringe if you’re hesitant. You can always have more trimmed after it’s styled or take it up a notch on your next visit.
- Recreate Daniel Millar’s tousled curly hairstyle by applying a small amount of nourishing curl cream – around the size of a penny – after rinsing out your shampoo and conditioner.
- Gently towel dry your hair (a micro fibre one can help to reduce frizz) before working in some heat-protecting mousse or texture spray. Squeeze and twist your curls gently as you go.
- If you’re blow drying, use a diffuser attachment – which helps curls to stay structured – and a low-to-medium setting to ward off frizz and heat damage.
- Use your fingers to gently move, lift and separate the curls in your fringe for that choppy definition.
- After more texture or hold? Use your hands to work a pea-sized amount of matte- or natural-finish styling product into your hair.
- Again, use your fingers to lightly add any final definition to your fringe.
