Layers For Short Curly Hair
If you’ve got cropped curly hair, then layers are the perfect way to add volume and body without getting too bulky.
The Curly Shag
Delilah is renowned across Melbourne for our iconic curly hair shags. Think of the shag as the 70s inspired volume miracle for thin hair. The addition of shorter layers close to the top of the head creates the illusion of a full head of voluminous curls that once seemed impossible.

Layers for Long Curly Hair
While the shag is our personal favourite technique for layering longer locks, we do have a plenty of other tricks up our sleeve. If you’re after a more subtle entry into layers, a v-cut is a simple way to create more texture to your ends.
Our Delilah-ettes can take it easy with some soft vertical layers, before going back in to target individual curls to provide movement where it’s most needed.
