Curlique ‘Dos: 5 Ways To Style Curly Hair

1. Curly Messy Shag

You might say that we’re a bit obsessed with the shag hairstyle on curly hair. It’s a ‘70s #throwback hairstyle that we hope never stops being cool. To make sure the shag looks like a cute way to style curly hair, make sure you define your curls. After you wash and condition your hair, use a blowdryer with the diffuser attachment on, and prep your hair with the Dove Style+Care Curls Defining Mousse. Shagtastic!

2. Half-Up Hairstyle

Bored of your bun or ponytail? Try the super quick and easy half-up hairstyle instead. We know the overall effect is pretty much the same, but we love how versatile it is to style the half-up hairstyle. Prep your dry hair with a couple of drops of the Suave Professionals Coconut Oil Infusion Damage Repair Oil Treatment. Then pull half of your hair into a half ponytail and you are good to groove!

3. Intricate-Looking Braids

There is no reason you can’t do fun braids with curly hair. It’s one of the more ridiculous “hair rules” we’ve ever heard. You can (and should!) do a fishtail braid in curly hair! We think it looks totally gorgeous because naturally curly hair has so much texture! You’ll get a more interesting braid that will actually stay braided. So perfect.

4. Side-Swept Bangs

Do you want to wear curly hair with bangs but don’t want to commit to the cut? We totally get that! Getting bangs can be kind of scary. If you’re more into the fake it till you make it group, try the hair flip style! With hair that is about shoulder length, doing the flip can let you play around with the look of having curly bangs, without needing to actually cut curly bangs. Keep your style in tact with a light mist of the Bed Head By TIGI Flexi Head Strong Flexible Hold Hairspray.

5. Very Voluminous

We love how this curly style is wearable but totally ’80s. All you need to do to get this big fluffy hair look? Break up your curls or tease the sides! If you have a tighter curl structure, you may be able to get this kind of volume just by fluffing out your hair with your fingers. For wavy/curly gals, just take a teasing brush and lightly pull back on your curls. It gives crazy volume without having to deal with tons of knots later.
