Having curly hair can be a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, curly hair can look amazing and be versatile in styling options. On the other hand, curly hair can often appear frizzy and unruly, making it difficult to manage correctly. That’s why it’s so important to know the right tips, tricks, and hairstyles that are easy to do and maintain. Fortunately, there are plenty of gorgeous hairstyles for curly hair girls that can make showing off your curls a fun and stress-free task.
Low Braided Curls for Homecoming
If you’re looking for an elegant hairstyle for a special occasion, like a homecoming dance, this low braided hairstyle is a great pick. The key is to begin with freshly washed, conditioned, and dried curls. Once you’ve got your curls in sections and are ready to begin, part a small section of hair at the top of your head to begin the braid, and keep separating and French-braiding until you reach the low back, or nape of the neck, of your head. Depending on your desired look, you can have tighter or looser curls, so be sure to take your time when styling.
Top Knot with a Loose Low Bun
This next hairstyle is great for a formal occasion or simply for everyday wear. The key to making this look perfect is to begin with wet, cleansed, conditioned, and detangled curls, followed by a light styling product of your choice to add some definition and shine. To achieve the top knot style, tie your curly strands into a high ponytail, followed by a bun, before wrapping a section of your hair around the hair tie and tucking the ends in, to keep it secure. After straightening any flyaways and adding some desired light accessories, you’re ready to go!
Curly Ponytail with Hair Band
This elegant and sleek ponytail hairstyle is great for styling your curly hair away from your face and showcasing your lovely, bouncy curls. All you’ll need to recreate this style is a brush, elastic headband, and some light styling product of your choice. Begin by brushing your hair up into a ponytail, using the headband directly behind the ponytail itself followed by the elastic. Once you’ve secured your hair with the elastic, twist your ponytail with the headband to give a more elegant and defined look. You can also use some gel to make the twists more defined, and you’re all set!
Half Up Half Down Curly Hair
This “half up half down” look is a timeless hairstyle that can be tailored to suit any look. The key for a successful half-up look is applied to washed, conditioned, and detangled curls. Divide your hair in half to create a top and bottom section. Take a small section of the top half of your hair and tie it back with elastic to secure your style. To make your half-up hairstyle more beautiful, you can add volume by teasing the strands. Once you’re done teasing, you can secure the style with bobby pins, or just let it hang down for a more casual, but put-together look.
