1. Low twisted ponytail

First, let’s take it back to basics with one of the simplest easy hairstyles for frizzy hair: the low twisted ponytail. This delicate detail will give your everyday pony a little extra je ne sais quoi, while also keeping frizzy curly hair under control.

All you need to do is brush your hair into a low ponytail, leaving 2 sections of hair free on either side. Then wrap each of these sections around the base of your ponytail, pin in place with a couple of bobby pins et voila: pretty hair without the panic. Credit: @silversixpenceinhershoe

2. Mohawk braid

If a statement-making style is what you’re after, this mohawk braid is the ‘do for you!

Editor’s tip: If you struggle to braid your hair, try prepping your hair with a few spritzes of the TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray. This will give your strands a grittier texture, making it easier for your hair to hold onto the style and stopping it falling out.

3. Braided updo

Whether you’ve got a friend’s wedding or a prom on the horizon (or you just like to wear your hair up and out of your way), there are plenty of updo hairstyles for curly frizzy hair that you can try.

You might see your frizziness as a hindrance, but actually, when it comes to creating romantic-looking updos like this one, it helps to provide extra texture and give the look a more whimsical, fairytale finish. Credit: @goldenlockshairstyling

4. Half-up braids

Embracing your natural texture might seem scary at first, particularly if you usually straighten it out, but a half-up, half-down style is a great way to ease yourself in gently.

5. Messy bun

Another hairstyle which will make you feel grateful for your natural frizz is the messy bun.

Messy buns are by nature intended to look a little dishevelled and any natural waves or movement will just add to the look! After all, you’ve never heard of a messy bun that’s too messy, have you? Credit: @ohhitzrago

6. Boho braid

Channel your inner Coachella style with a bohemian half-braid, like this Instagrammer. Starting at the front of your hair, weave in your bangs and continue braiding until your reach the end of your hair, leaving the back of your hair free and flowing.

Now all you need is a flowing dress and some face gems, and you’ll be giving Vanessa Hudgens a run for her money! Credit: @hair_x_holly
