Long hair? Curly hairstyles to right now
1. Half-up, half-down curls
Love your curls, but need to tame them from time to time? Then instead of hiding them all away in a tight updo, why not try out one of the neat half-up, half-down hairstyles on the market? Great for keeping your strands out of your eyes, these hybrid hairdos will have your mane in check throughout the day, as well as coming in a number of stylish variations, too.
If you get bored of having a simple half-up hairstyle, try turning the top half into a bun or 2! Simply create a standard topknot (or braided bun) using the top section of your hair, and apply a few pumps of the Toni&Guy Curl Lock Oil, to help define your coily strands.
2. Messy bun updo
Looking for curled hairstyles for long hair? Well, now that it’s cool to have a messy, bedhead-inspired mane, it’s easier than ever to make a simple bun stylish! And as the lovely Pixie Lott shows, a messy bun makes for a fun everyday hairstyle, that is totally effortless to rock with long hair. To achieve this look, all you have to do, is pull your tresses up, secure with a hairband and some bobby pins, and finish with a healthy dose of the TRESemmé Perfectly (un)Done Hairspray.
To really boost the nonchalant feel of this look, leave a few tendrils of hair free from the front of your ‘do, and curl them with your curling wand. This will give you more high-impact curls, as well as adding a romantic touch to your overall look!
3. Side braids
Want to impress your friends with your hot styling prowess? Then opting for some braids is the ideal way to inject some extra interest into your everyday look. And the braided look that we’re crushing on most? Stunning side braids, of course!
This look can be achieved by French or Dutch braiding along the side of your head, or weaving a standard plait and securing it to the side of your mane with a bobby pin. Just remember to spritz your strands with the TIGI S-Factor Papaya Leave-In Moisture Spray, to ensure your braids are looking hydrated and frizz-free!
4. Twisted ponytail
Looking for a way to update your basic ponytail? Why not just add a simple twist? It’s quick, simple and totally stylish. What’s not to love, eh?
5. Braids and curls
When we saw this hairstyle, we immediately fell in love. Why? Well, because it combined two of our favourite things: box braids and curls. Now that’s what we’d call a win-win hair situation.
