2. Curly Wolf Cut with Bangs and Tendrils. This edgy cut happily combines tight and bouncy ringlets with flyaways sticking all around the perimeter to add a volumizing halo to the look.

3. Curly Wavy Wolf Cut in Muted Brown. While layering gives a nice shape to this mane and releases the bounce of the curls, it cannot go unnoticed how seamlessly the curtain bangs melt into the side locks to spotlight the face.

4. Neat Wolf Cut on Curly Hair with Highlights. Here is a tidier version of the shag, which is still beautifully layered but has larger and smoother curls with caramel highlights emphasizing the pattern.

6. Crossover Mullet Wolf Cut for Curly Hair. Even though the shagginess prevents this style from being “business in the front”, it clearly reminds us of the 80’s mullet craze.

8. Thin Curly Wolf Cut with Shadow Roots. This ethereal style gets the most out of shags’ volumizing power but also gains some depth with the dark roots bursting through its blonde.

12. Multicolored Wolf Cut for Short Curly Hair. What can be cooler than adding pops of color to playful volumized ringlets? Infusing them with a whole set of pastel hues, of course!

13. Wispy Wolf Cut with Curly Hair. This girl has selected a messier alternative with a piece-y texture and tiny golden strips scattered throughout the curls to illuminate them from the inside.

14. Tapered Wolf Cut for Curly Hair. Masterfully placed layers in this wolf cut let the large curls hug the face softly and retain plenty of their volume but with some flattering elongation on the bottom.

15. Medium Curly Wolf Cut with Face-Framing Highlights. This cute style wins our plaudits for both the springy feel of the curls and the attention-demanding honey-blonde locks around the face.

16. Volume-Boosting Wolf Cut in Curly Hair. This simple medium brown hairstyle features short choppy layers, which remove extra bulk from the thick tresses to give the curls better lift in the front.
