Do I Need A Perm For A Short Cut?

by Jazzy Canon

Q: Do I need a perm to get a short cut like Halle Berry?

A: Hi. If your natural hair texture is kinky then yes you're going to need a perm to get Halle's style.

She has hair that easily straightens with a flat iron or a very light relaxer. If you want that look and your hair isn't as straight you're going to end up with an afro rather than her sleek style.

And a heads up:

Just make sure that you really want the style and you'll maintain it before you make the decision. You're going to have to have frequent touch ups and hair cuts to maintain a short do.
