Curly hair can be difficult to deal with. It seems to have a life of its own, especially when it’s extra humid. You constantly have to fight frizz and dryness. On a extremely bad hair day, the best way to deal with your curly hair is to put it up. A high bun seems like a good idea, especially if you don’t want to restyle your hair in the middle of the day. So read on to learn how to style curly hair and keep it neat and polished.
Squeeze out excess water from your hair using a t-shirt instead of a towel. The smooth fabric of the shirt will help minimize frizz and breakage, so your curly hair won’t get damaged.
Time to shine
Apply TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops to your curly hair to make it looked polished. The extra shine will also add glam. Put a drop of serum on your palms, rub them together, and apply the product evenly on your hair from mid-length up to the tips. Apply little by little to all sections of your hair.
Use a hair diffuser
Unlike blow dryers, a hair diffuser can help dry curly hair without making it frizzy. It can also help boost curls so they fall beautifully.
To use a diffuser, hang your head sideways and place the tips of a section of your curly hair into the bowl of the diffuser. Then, slowly move the diffuser up to make the heat reach your roots. Diffuse at a low to medium setting to minimize heat damage. Repeat until you’re done with all sections of your hair.
Tie your hair
Gather your hair on your crown and put it in a high ponytail using an elastic or hair tie. Make sure that your ponytail is tight enough so your hairstyle won’t unravel later on.
Braid your hair
After putting your hair in a ponytail, create a three-strand braid and secure it with another elastic. Don’t worry if your braid is not perfect. You can make your braid a bit loose so your hair looks full when put into a bun.
Create a bun
Wrap your braid around the base of your ponytail to create a bun. Then, secure with bobby pins. Move your head sideways to check if the pins are enough. If the bun feels loose, add more bobby pins until the bun sits tightly on your crown.
Now, no more rebellious curly hair! This hairstyle is perfect for busy days when you don’t have time to redo your hair. You can also wear this ‘do when attending special events like weddings or brunches with your family on a Sunday morning.
If you want to add a touch of boho to this hairstyle, complement it with a bandanna or headband and wear a long flowy dress. You can jazz up this hairstyle and experiment with different looks. Enjoy!
