What Is A Rezo Cut? Style Guide & 25 Unique Ideas

If you have curly hair that is limp of life and you’re looking for a way to give it a little glow-up, there’s one option you might not have considered: the Rezo Cut.

While there are many women’s hairstyles that promise to make styling curly hair easier and less of a headache, the Rezo cut is special in that it was created specifically to enhance what you already have instead of completely changing it.

What is a Rezo Cut?

A Rezo Cut (also known as the ‘RëZOcut’) is a method of dry-cutting curly hair that became popular only a few years ago.

It was inspired by African American culture and created by stylist Nubia Suarez. The technique involves creating lots of volume at the crown of the head, leaving the hair’s length alone.  In fact, the hair is typically left at one length all around the head.

The cut doesn’t involve chopping off beautiful curls but focuses instead on amplifying them. It’s the ideal option for women who love their curls and their length but are looking for shape and tons of volume.
