If you want a style that will create a bold and positive first impression, consider experimenting with a layered cut. Medium-length hair looks good in a messy bun or a topknot, while a shoulder-length style is perfect for the evening. The base color of that should be brown or blonde. You can use a light-hold wax to give it a matte finish. To keep your curly locks looking healthy and shiny, add a touch of red lipstick.
