Best Hairstyles for Curly Hair

Curly hair can be quite a thing to work with, even with today’s convenience of having your hair tools right inside the comfort of your own home. Many times you try to iron it to make it, at the very least, somehow unruly and presentable but you don’t always win this battle. You can have your hair cut, too, but that can be tricky business as t

he wrong cut will have you stuck with a messy blob of hair. So, what do you do if you have curly hair? Do you just let your mane run amok? You can do that but you don’t have to. Instead, why not embrace your locks and make the most out of it? Here are some of the best hairstyles for curly hair that you can use to take full advantage of your tresses.

  • Curly Bob – we all know how difficult it is to work with curly hair so if you’re looking for a hairstyle that’s easy to manage, you can go for a curly bob. This look is very gorgeous and it has a professional look to it that also makes you hair look more tamed and controlled. If there’s one downside to having a curly bob, it is that you have to pay your hairstylist a visit every now and then to maintain it but that also means you’ll have healthier hair so it’s not really too much of a disadvantage. This cut flatters women with square, long and oval face shapes best.

  • Braids – to women with straight hair, this is just another cute thing to do with hair but braids, to women with curly hair, are perhaps the most popular way to keep curly hair under control. It works best for women with long layers although short layers are workable, too. You can go with a simple side braid or any traditional braid if you’re pressed for time but if you want something that will last for days, go for the really tight ones that stick (almost) to the scalp like corn rows. It takes one long trip to the hair dresser but this will save you loads of time in the morning for days.

  • Messy curly bun – doing a bun takes literally 5 minutes and it’s even quicker when you don’t bother about it being sleek and you just let it be sexy, wild and messy. Curly hair is perfect for creating just that. all you have to do is slick some mousse on and do a top knot then you’re all set. You don’t need to smooth it out not fuss about the bun having to look perfect. The texture of your hair creates the perfect messy look without you exerting too much effort.

  • Au naturel – sometimes, we get so worked up in trying to hide curly hair out of the way that we forget how unique it actually looks. Women with straight hair pay so much just to have those fabulous waves and texture on their hair so why not make the most of your hair and just let it down sometimes? Just let it hang loose Carrie Bradshaw style. Let it be big, let it be bold, let it be beautiful.
