About This Quiz

There are many different hairstyles, hair colors and haircuts in the beauty world, but did you know that some of them look and feel better on certain hair types? If you don't know what your specific hair type is, don't worry, because that's what this pretty hair quiz is going to find out today!

There are four main hair types in the beauty world: straight, curly, wavy and kinky hair. If you're a fan of flat irons and shiny locks, then you might be like Zendaya, Lily Collins or Selena Gomez. These celebs all have straight hair, and many of them also add in some layers or extensions for an extra-long look! Those with kinky hair may also get some beautiful hair inspiration from Alicia Keys, Taraji P. Henson and Kerry Washington. This type of hair is usually thick with coiled locks, but it definitely requires some maintenance through hot oil treatments and conditioners. And remember, no matter what your actual hair type is, you can always change it through the magic of hair products and styling tools. So whether you know your true hair type or not, we're about to guess what it is with this beauty personality quiz!
