Curly Hair vs Straight Hair

July 8, 2010 12:53:14 PM PDT
The curly versus straight hair debate continues to rage on with women.

While that is difficult to prove, often women want what they don't have when it comes to their hairs, says John Gialluisi, creative director of Mario Tricoci salons. www.tricoci.com

Don't be afraid to switch it up, John says. Just remember:

  • You own your hair, not the other way around. Celebrities like Beyonce, Sara Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman and Meg Ryan show us how women can have it both ways.
  • Latest tools make it possible. We know so much about hair today and have the science and technology to help it do amazing things. There is no reason why a woman with frizzy, curly hair can't smooth and tame her strands to create a completely new look, the stylist says.
  • Love the hair you're in. At Mario Tricoci, we don't believe in bad hair days, John says. Talk to a pro, understand your hair, get the tools and learn the techniques that will help you look and feel your best.
