On the search for curly hairstyles for women, but can’t figure out which look is right for you? Well, here at All Things Hair, we absolutely adore curly tresses because of their natural shape and full-bodied appearance. But as anyone with kinky hair will tell you, it’s not always the easiest of hair types to style (sigh!).
However, contrary to popular belief, curly hair actually gives you the perfect blank canvas to try out some really beautiful and on-trend hairstyles. So, if it’s a new look your after for your curly barnet, then read on to see our top 4 styles, that are just great for women of every age!
Our top 4 curly hairstyles for women of any age
1. Dramatic side-parted curls
When you have really curly locks, it’s easy to fall into the habit of just leaving your tresses to do as they please. And while this can still make for a high-impact look, sometimes you need to give your ‘do a little bit more of an edge. Enter: side-parted curls.
Long and flowing, this utterly gorgeous look is perfect when you want a hairstyle that is guaranteed to turn some heads. All you have to do, is style your hair with a deep side parting, and clip your strands back with your chosen hair accessory. You’ll have a extra volumised look, that is ideal for making long or round faces appear more angular!
2. Curly pixie
If you find that your curls are a bit unruly and frequently overcrowd your face, then opting for a cropped look is the ideal way to tackle problematic hair! And while pixie cuts are often though to be reserved for straight or fine-haired ladies only, we’re here to tell you, if you’ve got a head full of bouncy curls, then a pixie is a fantastically bold hairstyle that’ll give you a super chic edge. For a really flattering look, keep extra volume on top, but taper it down to the sides and ends.
Editor’s tip: Try styling your crop into a stunning pompadour or textured quiff using the VO5 Texture Soft Moulding Wax, for an ultra on-trend look.
3. Mid-length waves
Looking for a simple way to give your appearance a boost of vitality? Then working a mid-length cut with lush, loose waves is the perfect way to give your look a youthful and glammed-up finish. Ask your stylist to work in layers through your lengths, as this will help take some of the bulk out of your tresses, and to make it much more manageable! To enhance your hair’s natural texture, work through a touch of the Dove Advanced Hair Series Absolute Quench Serum into damp hair, twisting your strands as they dry.
4. Short bob
Do you have highly coily, natural hair? Then as you’ll know, the mane situation can sometimes get a little out of hand – since as your hair grows in length, it will also grow in width! So, to relieve yourself of the sheer mass of your strands, try getting a short bob haircut, that falls just below your ears. This will ease some of the bulk from your hair, helping to create a softer silhouette that looks fresh and feminine. When working with curly tresses, it’s important to ensure they’re fully moisturised, so try spritzing a little of the TIGI S-Factor Papaya Leave-In Moisture Spray, to hydrate your hair and keep frizzy bits at bay.
