Curtain bangs can compliment any face type, or hair texture, including curly hair. The trick lies in getting a haircut with layers that suit your face shape. You need to work with your ringlets and waves and make them stand out, create more volume and give them bounce and body.
The best curtain bangs for curly hair can be achieved by cutting the sections step by step. So when you get the cut, make sure the strands are cut longer than you think you really need. Your hair will shrink, and you may end up with very short bangs that look unpleasant.
