The 4 Hair Types: Is Yours Straight, Wavy, Curly, or Coily?

Do you ever feel your hair has a mind of its own? You've probably pile on products and watch many tutorials, but your mane still doesn't cooperate? You know what. It might just be time to crack the code and discover the secret to luscious locks: understanding your hair type! Forget the "one size fits all" approach. Hair, like fingerprints, is unique. Thus you need to know your hair type? So, let's unravel the 4 main hair types.

Straight Hair (Type 1)

The sleek superstars! Straight hair can be fine and delicate, or thick and lush, both boasting a natural shine that is envied. Those with straight hair are the queens of versatility, able to transform their locks into anything from blowouts to voluminous waves with ease. But don't be fooled by its simplicity! Straight hair can be prone to flatness. But don't worry, Flourish Beauty stylists can help you add volume and texture to give you that effortless chic look.

Wavy (Type 2)

Wavy hair falls between straight and curly. These S-shaped strands range from loose, beachy waves to bouncy, well-defined curls. Frizz can be a battle for wavy hair, so finding the right balance of hydration and styling techniques is key. Our experts can teach you how to embrace your wave pattern, enhance your curls, or smooth them out for a polished look.

Curly (Type 3)


Big hair, don't care! Type 3 hair flaunts stunning, defined curls with an "S" shape. It's bouncy and needs a little extra TLC to keep those coils popping. However, curls can become frizzy. With the right products and techniques, you can tame the frizz and maintain your beautiful curls.

Coils (Type 4)

Densely packed coils and kinks describe coily hair. Coily hair is incredibly strong, but it's also exposed to dryness. Deep conditioning and gentle handling are essential to keeping these coils healthy and thriving. Coily hair can be styled in various ways, from twist-outs and braidouts to stunning afro styles.
