Natural hair in all its glory is finally being appreciated, but anyone blessed with curls will agree that they often have a mind of their own.
For beautifully styled bouncy curls, natural waves, or amazing afros, you don’t have to use heat and damaging products. So, unplug that flat iron and embrace those curls; here are five curly hairstyles you can achieve today.
1. Space Buns
There’s a reason why they’re so popular; Space buns are both flattering and easy. This hairstyle will keep curls out of your face on a hot day while also accentuating their beauty.
First prepare the curls by detangling and adding a primer. Next, section the hair in any part you like. Now, evenly gather one section and twist the curls together. Either place on the top, side, or bottom of your head; whatever feels best.
Use a colorful pin or scrunchie to hold the bun in place. Repeat on the other side and you’re good to go. This look is perfect for music festivals or a daytime outing.
2. Side-Sweeping Updo
This look is elegant, flattering, and looks way more complicated than it really is. With no heat and little product, the side-sweeping updo is perfect for both everyday styling and classier occasions.
Start by flipping your head upside down and gather the curls loosely to one side of your head. Carefully flip right-side-up while still holding the curls loosely. Let a few strands fall to the opposite side of your head while still keeping them separate.
Use pins that match your hair color to hold the hair in place at the back of your head. Sweep over and pin remaining loose ends for extra volume or leave them out to frame your face.
3. Sleek Bun
This look is perfect for hot summer days or when hair needs to be pulled back. This sleek bun is perfect for both short and long curly hairstyles.
Start by parting the hair on the side, down the middle, or in a zig-zag. You can also choose to brush the hair back for a more dressed up look. Next, gather the hair in a low bun, top knot, or ponytail depending on your part.
Next, use a defining gel to smooth down the curls and flyaways. Use the same gel and a toothbrush to lay edges and baby hairs for a sleek, beautiful, and clean look. Add colorful clips or scrunchies for a pop.
4. Loose Braids
This look is perfect for long curly hair with looser curls. All you need are some clear elastics or pins.
Start by parting your hair to frame your face. Next, grab a small piece of hair from the front of your face and carefully braid toward the back of your head, picking up pieces as you go. Braid all the way down or pin to the back of your head for an elegant, loosely-curled look.
5. Layered Cut
If you’re thinking of cutting your curls, consider going for layered curly hairstyles. Layered curls add body and frame the face for a flattering, trendy look.
With layers, the beautiful natural volume of curls is accentuated. If you’re searching for that lioness look, layers are your best friend. Another added bonus of layered curly hairstyles is that they hide grown-in roots wonderfully.
