This haircut is for people with short hair. If you are asking, NO your hair does NOT HAVE to be straight for this look! The best way to wear this look is curly! if you do not have curly hair, take a curling iron to it! Although, curling your hair everyday could damage your hair because so much heat. I have this haircut and I choose to flat iron it because whenever I let my hair air dry, it always looks like I just woke up. However, all hair is not the same do what you feel looks best on you.
