Short curly hairstyles your jam?woman with curly hair

A big bouncy bangin’ bunch o’ curl just what the doctor ordered?

What exactly are you waiting for then? Come in and see the curl queens at Delilah. Whether you’re after a short, sharp bob, the shaggiest of mullets, or a mullet shag, you’ll leave with the most luscious of locks you ever did see.

Cutting a circular shape—or any shape for that matter—in short curly hairstyles and Afro hair is not just a skill, it’s an absolute art form. And, we’ve mastered it, if we do say so ourselves.

Dry Cutting

All the Delilah-ettes use the dry cutting technique to create killer curls. Dry cutting is essential when it comes to finessing short curls. This is because dry cutting enables us to work with the natural form, texture, rise and fall of your hair. It reveals your curl pattern, and illuminates how your waves and kinks work. It helps us decide where and how to remove bulk, or add texture and movement.

Our dry cuts are the secret to serving up a short curly hairstyle that you can style with ease from home. You know the one—it takes minutes to finesse. A smidgen of product on your hand, tousle and out the door you go. That dreaded ‘day after the hairdresser’ remorse is a thing of the past with Delilah in our contact list. Our team of curl masters will leave you looking fab for weeks – not just during a sleek ‘after’ photo for Insta.

Short Curly Hairstyle Enhancing Creams

And, just for a little added sprinkle of fairy dust, we even handmake our very own curly hair enhancing creams. Salon owner, MR.D. makes every single jar right here in Footscray, Melbourne. They’re the perfect additional any ethical shoppers basket. The packaging is all completely recyclable. The ingredients are all high quality and locally sourced. And, what we’re most proud of, is that $1 from every sale goes directly to stopping violence against women. That’s right—$1 from every product we sell is donated to Hair3Rs, a program by FVREE to help hair and beauty professionals recognize, respond and refer to the signs of family violence in our clients.
