Looking for a way to keep your curly hair safe from the fun festivities, but don’t have the time to braid your entire mane? In that case, the pineapple updo is about to become your favourite party season companion. Just remember to prep your strands with a leave-in conditioner, to help stop them from getting dry and brittle.

Editor’s tip: Struggle to keep your edges under control? Then try applying a little of the TIGI Bed Head Hard Head Mohawk Gel to your baby hairs, using a natural bristle brush to perfectly smooth them down.

Try adding a headband

If you like to wear your curls out and proud, but want to give them a fashion-forward twist, you may want to take a leaf out of Chanel’s runway hair book and accessorise it with a cute headband. Not only is it the perfect way to keep your hair out of your face while dancing, but there are also a wealth of different styles to choose from! See: it’s pretty and practical.

Editor’s tip: Want to amp up your curl definition? Then simply apply the TIGI Catwalk Curls Rock Amplifier to your mane, and watch as it makes every curl pop, while also enhancing your natural texture.

Curly hair, don’t care!

Let’s be honest: sometimes you just want to celebrate your curls in all their glory! But before you don your party hat, keep in mind that the winter weather can be rather unforgiving to those with natural hair. So, don’t forget the tried and tested LOC, LOCO or LCO method (which stands for liquid, oil and cream), to help moisturise your ‘fro.

For the liquid section, try using the Tresemmé Botanique Nourish & Replenish Hydrating Mist, which helps condition, detangle, and get your hair ready for styling. Afterwards, follow up with the Dove Advanced Hair Series Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment for your oil section, and seal in all your moisture with the Dove Advanced Hair Series Quench Absolute Crème Serum for the final step of your hair care regimen.


Have these curly hair ideas inspired your next party look? Great! But if you’re looking way beyond the New Year’s celebrations, and want a ‘do that’ll ensure you’re one step ahead of the game, skip on over to our Black Hairstyles page, and revel in the world of amazing natural hair!
