If you have curls then yes, you do have one of the most challenging hair textures, but we also think you are lucky! Curls are beautiful and many of us spend hours trying to make our straight locks curly.

When treated right, curly hair can be your most stunning feature. It just takes a little time to find out what works for your hair as everyone is different. Here is the ARENA guide to curly hair to get you embracing those curls and turning heads.



Getting the right cut is very important. For a cleaner look you will want to “cut to the curl”. There is no point straightening your hair out to have it cut as the natural curl will spring back to create an uneven line. A good stylist will be able to advise you on the best cut for your hair curl and length.


This is more of an individual choice depending on how your hair reacts to being washed. Some people can get away with 1-2 times a week. Some may need to wash their hair more often as the curl will need to be reactivated.Curly hair is usually drier because it’s naturally more porous, causing frizz and tangles so conditioning should be a top priority! Kevin Murphy RE.STORE is perfect for curly hair, designed to be used in place of shampoo and conditioner, this weekly treatment features a unique blend of superfood proteins and amino acids to naturally reconstruct brittle hair. By rebuilding and restoring elasticity, strength and moisture it helps to reveal smoother, healthier hair. Perfect for replacing moisture in dry hair and giving you luscious smooth curls.
