It’s been about a month (give or take a few days) since I’ve had my first DevaCut transformation. So, how am I styling after a deva cut? Read on…

People get deva cuts when they want a bit of shaping their curls. Some cuts are great. Mine was OK. My curls were certainly uniform. So, what have I been doing with my new found hair?

Absolutely nothing.

LOL seriously. Not only have I been on a “I don’t care for doing anything to my hair” kind of mood, I’ve just not been able to totally recreate the exact look as on the day it was cut.

Therefore, laziness kind of won out. It’s only been a month though.

PuffCuff Controlled

One way I have worn my curls out is simply pulled back and secured with a large (the Original) PuffCuff. It’s a bit frizzy here thanks to all the humidity we are experiencing on the East Coast. Yet, I still managed to maintain some definition.

The PuffCuff is one of my favorite accessories because it makes fine hair look fuller. It’s able to secure all of your hair rather full or not. It is loosely but securely held together. And, it falls in whatever way you like.

Styling for Buns after a Deva Cut

Buns have always been a staple hairstyle for me. I gravitate toward them when I’m feeling lazy and when I just want to protective style. Coincidentally, I’m heavily wanting to protective style because honestly I just want my length back.

So, I’ve settled on pulling this DevaCut hair back into a sleek bun and sometimes throwing in a side twist or braid.

That’s pretty much it. I don’t like to manipulate my fine strands very much because they are prone to breaking with too much handling.

Why Did I Bother to Get a Deva Cut?

Good question!

I think part of the reason is I was right in the thralls of summer and my wash and go styles were just not falling right. Instead of end of summer, I should have got the Deva Cut at the beginning.

Typically, the wash and go is a staple hairstyle for me in the summer; not so much in the fall. My bad. I probably should have done it sooner.

At any rate, I don’t want to let this beautiful cut go completely to waste while growing in my hair. The weather is pretty warm here in New York so I’m going to start doing wash and go’s again for the next few weeks. So, I’ll actually put some effort into styling.

With that in mind, I’ll be back sharing some other ways I’m styling after a Deva Cut. Stay tuned 🙂
