Layer cuts on curly hair are great at defining curls, allowing movement and bounce from eliminating weight. Layering curly hair is definitely good, and all about adding shape to create a hairstyle that will suit the individual.
There a number of ways to make straight hair change to curly or wavy, however they can be grouped into two categories.
The thing about bangs is most people have tried them at least once in their lifetime and have either had a great experience or a really bad one.
