Everyday ‘dos: 9 of our favourite easy styles for curly hair

When it comes easy style for curly hair, beach waves and curls never fail to make a lasting impression. Just spritz your damp hair with the TRESemmé Perfectly (Un)done Sea Salt Spray let it air dry and voilà – instantly textured, tousled waves and curls.
2. Maiden twist
Any sort of braided or twisted hairstyle will work a treat on curly hair – after all, you’ve got the natural volume, texture and lift that straight-haired girls have to work tirelessly to achieve.
This maiden-inspired twist allows you to embrace your natural textures while keeping hair off the face and achieving that easy yet polished vibe that’s on-point for the weekend.
3. Low-key bun

5. Pretty and pinned
Just take small sections of hair, gently twist your strands and pin them to the back of your head, using bobby pins. Continue to do this until you’ve pinned back all of your curls into a lovely undone chignon hairstyle. Easy peasy, eh?
6. Dramatic curls
The great thing about having naturally curly hair is that, unlike straight-haired girls, you can achieve big, bold, volumised looks with minimal effort!
7. Curly ponytail
Good news: a simple ponytail can look incredibly chic and cute if you’re blessed with naturally curly hair, and its playfully casual vibe makes it perfect for weekend wear.
To really enhance those curls or wavy textures when you’ve gathered them up into a high pony, we recommend using a curl-defining product that can also help tame frizz like the VO5 Frizz Free Cream, which you can also use to help smooth down any flyaways at the front or top of your head.
8. Fancy florals
Want to show off your beautiful natural textures, but a straight-forward down ‘do just seems, well, a bit boring? Why not invest in some pretty floral accessories?
Just take your pick from clips, hairbands or even real blooms (if you’re a true romantic!). Simply secure your chosen buds in place using (lots of) bobby pins and you’re ready to rock and roll!
9. Rainbow curls
Okay, we admit it, the main focus of this look may not be the curls themselves, but by adding in bursts of colour throughout your mane, you can really make your curls stand out from the crowd! And the good news is, that this look doesn’t require a trip to the salon – you can easily add some playful hues to your tresses using hair chalks or even temporary coloured hair sprays.
