Graceful Low Maintenance Haircuts for Frizzy Hair

Many haircuts will take you from hiding your hair to showing it off. But it’s not just about the haircut–it’s also about how you style it! Here are the top twenty low-maintenance haircuts and hairstyles for frizzy hair

1. Side-Parted Lob

This is an excellent option for homebodies and social butterflies alike. A long bob (lob) accentuates your natural waves and makes it easier to condition and moisturize your locks, so they’re no longer frizzy. Welcome to easy and breezy!


2. Face-Framing Curls

Let your hair work to your advantage by highlighting your gorgeous face with waves or curls grown over your chest. With a solid middle part, you can use your hair’s volume to create a lovely halo of your textured hair.


3. Messy Mullet

Yes, the mullet has returned! Mullets work great with frizzy hair because this low-maintenance hairstyle can thin your hair out or use your waves to get a great set of bangs. You won’t lose length, so you can still whip your hair into an updo.


4. Long Wavy Pixie

Pixie cuts leave your hair short in the back and around your ears, but it’s left long on top so that you can show off your curls or waves, with or without the frizz. The length on top leaves you plenty of hair to experiment with different styling products.


5. Shoulder-Length Bliss

This easy to maintain hairstyle has a lot in common with our number two, except the length is more manageable. You can still achieve plenty of updos with shoulder-length hair, but the length makes it easier to care for your frizz. Its simplicity lets your natural beauty shine.


6. Cascading Waves

Accentuate your face while trying a surprisingly simple style. Rub styling gel between your hands while your frizz-prone hair is damp, push it over to your desired side, and run your hands through it while pushing it over to the side.


7. Past-the-Shoulder Beach Waves

This low-maintenance hairstyle is the perfect frizzy haircut with a layered, windswept look. With a side or middle part, this hairstyle works any way you want. You can achieve a casual look with little effort or put as much thought into your style as you wish.


8. Glossy Smooth Waves

This haircut works exceptionally well for longer hair because the weight of the hair smooths out the waves and curls. Shampoo only once or twice a week, and use an occasional hair mask so your frizzy curls can keep their smooth gloss.


9. Natural Blonde Frizz

This style is perfect for small, tight curls. It works best with a middle part, but you could also opt for a slight side part if you’d like. This carefree style highlights your hair’s gorgeous texture and lets your frizzy curls pop out.


10. Slight Side-Parted Halo

This shoulder-length cut works for those with thinner hair and glasses. It allows your waves or curls to have more body because their weight is higher than if you had long hair. You can work a deep side part and let your hair swirl around your face like a goddess.


11. Full-Bodied Curls

13. Bob and Fun Bangs
