If you have curly hair, you know it’s hard to maintain a consistently beautiful hairstyle. In this article, you’ll learn all about the Rezo cut, a hairstyle that will almost definitely make you appreciate and embrace your curly hair!
What Is a Rezo Cut?
The Rezo cut is a haircut style/technique invented by Nubia Suarez, who felt like people didn’t appreciate curly hairstyles. She aimed to fix that by creating a new haircut that made even complex curly hairstyles look effortless.
A Rezo cut leaves you with an even cut around your entire head, with the specific goal of maintaining both length and volume of hair. Other styles for curly hair are too heavy, short, or have broken curls.
Yet, the Rezo cut manages to give those who have curly hair the best of everything. The benefits of a Rezo cut include:
- Even curls throughout your hair
- Straightened hair will still look even
- Great shape, length, and volume
While the Rezo cut is similar to the DevaCut, the DevaCut style is more about framing the face, and the Rezo cut is all about evenness.
By having an even length around your head, a Rezo cut looks great in multiple styles, even when you straighten your hair. The technique for a Rezo cut, which involves cutting the hair curl by curl while it’s dry, is complicated and requires proper training.
If you’ve been struggling to find a better way to cut your curly hair, it is worth the effort to find a specialist who can give you this unique haircut.
