The C-cut, as the name suggests, gets its namesake from the shape of the layers that form a flattering C shape around the face. To achieve that feathery flick, some hairstylists like to use a razor (as did Aniston’s hairstylist, Chris McMillan, when he created ‘The Rachel’) which results in plenty of texture, shape—and So. Much. Volume. I’m obsessed with the bounce.
The good news is that the C-cut (or the curve haircut, as it’s also been coined) suits all hair lengths. I’ve been seeing it on every hair length, from bobs with sleek C-shaped layers to longer lengths that have so much bounce and shape with this haircut. And on curly hair, this cutting technique allows the curls to fall in a C-shape, with volume at its peak at the sides of the face before curving back inwards.
