This style is easy to achieve and goes well with all hair types.
Method 1- Cutting your hair
Get your hair damp
Run your hair under the shower to make it damp
Run your hair under the water to make it damp but not soaking wet. Gently pat it with a towel to get rid of the excess water. If you have naturally curly hair, don’t make them wet. Just leave your hair dry.
Cutting your hair can be challenging, so it is recommended that you ask someone to assist you.
Part your hair down the middle
For a curtain hair cut style, part your hair down the middle
For a perfect cut, use a fine-tooth comb and part your hair down the middle, using your nose as a guide. If you have straight hair, comb your hair to remove the tangles. If you have curly hair, part your hair and let your curls fall naturally.
Comb the sides of your hair forward
Comb the sides of your hair forward to separate the sections
Comb your hair from the back to front. Then, use your comb to brush the rest of your hair backward to create a clear line between the side and the back section. This will help separate the sections for your haircut.
Cut the back hair
Start cutting your hair from the back
Grab a pair of scissors and use them to cut your hair. Start from the nape of your neck and go upwards to the middle of your head. Leave a bowl-cut shape on the top of your head to trim later.
Trim the sides
Trim the sides of your hair
Use scissors to trim the ends of your hair. Cut the hair on the sides, leaving behind a bowl-cut shape around the top of your head.
Cut the top
Cut your hair from your forehead to the crown of your head
The top strands of your hair are the longest, and they are what create the curtain style. Grab your scissors and start cutting your hair from your forehead to the crown of your head. Keep the front of your hair long as that will create the bangs that hang over the forehead.
Add layers to the top section of your hair
Trim the ends to give your hair texture
Grab a section of your hair and hold it in between your fingers. Hold the scissors downward towards the hair and trim them slightly from the ends to give them texture. Repeat the process with the other top section of your hair to make it light and bouncy.
Method 2- Styling curtain hair
i. Start with clean hair
Wash your hair with a sulfate-free shampoo
Prepare your hair for the curtain hairstyle by washing them with a sulfate-free shampoo. Then, towel-dry or rough dry your hair with your hands.
ii. Part your hair
Grab a comb and part your hair anywhere you like
Choose whether you want to part your hair down the middle, to the right, or the left. Grab a comb and part your hair when it’s damp so that it stays in place.
Straight hair often looks better parted down the middle, while curly hair looks excellent parted to either side.
If you have curly hair, add some curl-defining gel to your damp hair before you start drying it.
iii. Dry your hair downwards to avoid frizzy hair
Grab your hairdryer and point it downwards towards the top of your hair
While your hair is damp, grab your hairdryer and point it downwards to dry your hair.
iv. Use a round brush to promote volume
While drying your hair, use a round brush to add volume
While drying your hair, use a round brush to pull the hair away from your face. Keep brushing to add some volume to your hair as you dry them. If you have curly hair, don’t brush them as it can make them frizzy.
v. Use anti-frizz cream to set the look
Apply an anti-frizz cream to your hair
Get an anti-frizz cream and apply it to your hair. This will help you prevent frizz and flyaways.
