About.com's Beauty section has an extensive gallery of photos of short, curly hairstyles. There are photos of celebrities with varying degrees of curliness to their hair. Some of the curls are tight, corkscrew styles, while others are loose.
Adama Paris has tight, corkscrew style curls. Although her hair is actually long, the tight curl actually shrinks it to above the shoulder making it a short, chic curly hairstyle. Other celebrities with very tight curls on shorter hair include Valentina Bardi, Carmen Consoli and Cameron Bicondova. Loose curls also work well with short hair. Celebrities such as Heike Kloss, Taraji P. Henson and Jennifer Grey wear their hair short with loose curls.
