Type 3 - Curly Hair
• There is a definite loopy "S" pattern
• Curls are well-defined and springy
• Type 3 hair has a lot of body; it is easily styled in its natural state or straightened with a blow-dryer
• It isn't coarse, like many believe, but soft and very fine—there's just a lot of it
• Combinations of Type 3a and 3b curls are common
• There are two Type 3 subtypes:
3a: Curls are naturally big, loose and usually very shiny.
3a celebrities: AnnaLynne McCord, Debra Messing, Taylor Swift, Nicole Kidman
3b: Medium amount of curl, from bouncy ringlets to tight corkscrews.
3b celebrities: Julianna Margulies, Keri Russell, Bernadette Peters, Melina Kankaredes
