Your Guide to Hair Types 101 from Our Hair Salon in Edinburg, TX

How do you classify your hair?

  • Frizz city
  • Straight with shine
  • Large curls for days
  • Straight and shiny
  • Wavy with possible curl sass

If you have ever stared in the mirror and wondered how to enhance your locks, you are not alone. Most women and men don’t understand their hair type and will use the least-expensive products. After a while, that haircare can become dull. The 2020s are all about hair expression, and embracing your natural hair type is the first step.

Here is what you need to know.

Learning Your ABCs

If you have watched beauty videos recently, you have probably heard the terms “4C, 2B, 3C, etc.” Each of these refers to a natural hair type. These terms were first coined and made famous in the 1990s by Oprah Winfrey’s stylist Andre Walker.

Walkers typing system:

  • 1 A, 1B, 1C refers to straight hair with variation in thin to thickest hair.
  • 2A, 2B, 2C – refers to wavy hair that goes from fine and thin to coarse and frizzy.
  • 3A, 3B – refers to curly hair that varies from loose to corkscrew curls.
  • 4A, 4B – refers to kinky hair that ranges from tightly coiled hair to z-angled coils.
