Some women shy away from curly hair because it’s more difficult to maintain that straight hair. With the ever-present heat and humidity in this country, curls can quickly turn into a frizzy mess. With the right styling tips and products, though, curls can be your best assets. Here are pretty curls for long hair that we’re sure you’ll be excited to try.
Gorgeous Curls for Long Hair
1. Tight Curls
Are you a natural kulot? Lucky you! Just apply a dollop of hair mousse on your hair to help define your curls. Then, blow dry your hair. That’s it! If you have straight hair, use a curling wand to create gorgeous curls. The smaller the barrel, the tighter the curls. Don’t forget to spritz heat protectant on your hair before curling.
2. Loose Curls
This type resembles S-shapes that are a bit more defined than beach waves. Create loose curls using a curling wand with a bigger barrel. You can also use a blow dryer. Wary of using heat? Go for tousled hair. You just need lots of hairpins to create loose curls for long hair.
