5 Simple styles for curly hair to try this weekend

The 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 Smoothly Does It Frizz Free Creme, which you can also use to help smooth down any flyaways at the front or top of your head.

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!

So if you feel like really amping up your natural textures for a casual-glam look that’ll take you from a low-key dinner straight to a swanky cocktail bar, then all you need is a good curl-defining product (the VO5 Smoothly Does It Heat Protect Serum is our curly-haired editors’ favourite as it provides heat protection and helps to smooth and define your curl pattern), the Toni&Guy Glamour Jumbo Tong and a volume-boosting hairspray like the TRESemmé Runway Collection Max The Volume Creation Hairspray.

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.

The maiden 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.
