Top Hairstyles for Curly Hair

We always want what we don’t have. Girls with straight hair want curls, and girls with curly hair… well, they often just want a break from the humidity! As we mature, we come to grips with our bodies and our hair – be it curly, red, thick, thin, or brittle. We learn to live with and love what we were given. A good hairstyle from an experienced stylist can make a gal embrace those luscious curls.

Easy Hairstyles for Curly Hair

Use a drop or two of shine serum, worked through from the ends up. This will keep the frizzies at bay, allowing you to let your curls speak for themselves. Just let your hair hang down your back, and embrace the windblown and interesting look you’ll be rocking. Not recommended for humid or wet days!

A twisted up-do can look chic and stylish. It’s also an excellent way to bring order to chaos. Apply a serum or mousse to damp hair. Pull the hair back in a ponytail grip. Clip the ponytail into place vertically, allowing the up part of the hair to hang down over the twist. This creates a cascade of curls that looks posh but is simple to keep looking good all day. Best for medium-long and long hair.

Keep flyaways off your face by using a wide headband or a colorful scarf to get the trendy BoHo look. As always, use a shine serum or mousse through damp, towel-dried hair to prevent frizzing.

Professional Hairstyles for Curly Hair

If your hair is unhealthy, under- or over-processed, or if you’ve just never had a decent haircut before, it can be hit-or-miss finding someone who knows how to deal with curls.

The staff at these salons can guide you through which smoothing creams work best, how to style your locks, and what accessories will make you stand out. Keep in mind that African-American hair is coarser than Caucasian, so not every product will be helpful for white girls. Do not use straightening irons meant for African hair! These get much hotter than “white” hair can withstand.

If budgets are tight, hit the salon at Evergreen Beauty Cosmetology. Trainee stylists will give you the cut and style of a lifetime at a fraction of what you’d pay for a retail salon.

Completely apart from African-American salons, there exists a niche market for curl stylists. These specialists will talk you through curl care and maintenance, and teach you how to style at home in a way that flatters your hair and your features. Depending on the strength and thickness of your hair, a specialist can prescribe a washing schedule that will keep your curls looking shining and hydrated.
