Read on to check out some of our favorite styles for naturally curly hair:
Naturally Curly Hair: 10 Super Quick Hairstyles
1. Bold Center Part
This is one of those two-second styles that we absolutely love. Changing up your part gives you a whole new look in quite literally seconds. Try this straight middle part for a super symmetrical look that can easily take you from the office to cocktails.
2. Curly Top Knot
We love the look of naturally curly hair in a big top knot. This style is a cinch to do. Prep your hair with extra moisture while you define your ringlets with Bed Head By TIGI On the Rebound Curl Recall Cream. Then, create a bun right on the top of your head. You can loosen up little pieces to stick out for a fun look.
3. Pinned Back Pieces
If you get bored by wearing your hair just loose but don’t have a lot of time to style, try pinning back a few pieces. Just grab a small section of hair from the front of your hairline and pin back. The higher up you pin the hair the more modern the look. If you opt to pin right behind your ear you’ll get a super cute 1950s hairstyle.
4. Quick and Easy Ponytail
We know you know how to create a ponytail. We love this style because high ponytails have a fun bouncy look on naturally curly hair. Low ponytails are great too, they tend to work better if you’ll be wearing a hat. Add extra style to your ponytail by using a glitzy clip to cover your hair tie, or cover it with a small section of hair. You’ll be ready in minutes and you don’t need to deal with hair getting in your face.
5. Voluminous All Over
We love volume on those with curly hair. To create even bigger curls, tease naturally curly hair by backcombing. Top it off with a headband and set your style with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend Hold Level 4 so that your curls don’t fall flat.
6. Rockabilly Roll
This rolled style looks complex but it’s really quite easy! For some inspiration, check out our tutorial for victory rolls. To create a rockabilly roll, you just do one victory roll in the center (instead of one on either side of your part). After creating the roll, loosen it up a little bit so the roll falls slightly over your forehead. And that’s it!
7. Deep Side Part
A deep side part is a great way to show off your super defined curls. All you need to do is part your hair as far over on one side as you can. Then just sweep the hair on the shorter side over the opposite shoulder. It gives off an asymmetrical look that’s also super easy to create!
8. Defined Curls
When you’re in a rush but still want your curls to look hi-def, just quickly run your curler through your style. You don’t have to curl every section, just pick a few to define to add volume and more curl to your look.
9. Top Knot with Side Fringe
Top knots are an obvious choice, but give this style an upgrade with some side fringe to help frame your face. Pull down a few curly tendrils in the front for a more finished style. Maintain your curl shape with a few spritzes of Nexxus Between Washes Revived Curls Shape & Moisture Creme Spray.
10. Faux Bang Updo
If side bangs aren’t your style for your naturally curly hair, why not go for a whole faux bangs look? Bring all your curls to the front and strategically pin them to give the impression of bangs. You can have fun with this style and pin them in any direction to create any kind of part.
