Q
I have naturally curly hair and sometimes I perm it in order to get the curl out. I want a choppy short cut, but I’m afraid that it won’t look right because it will not lay flat. What should I do? —Keema

A
Be sure to have your hair cut by a stylist who is known for great cuts on highly textured hair. The expertise of an experienced hair artist is half the battle. Your stylist will know whether your hair will need to be relaxed to maintain a smooth and silky look, However, keep in mind that there are stylists who can achieve the look without relaxing, too. Based on the details of the cut, your stylist can suggest the best to keep your new look at its best.
