2 Chic Curly Medium Hairstyles

An easy way to upgrade a classic style while taking advantage of your natural texture.

1. Sleek With Natural Curls

Your natural curls have a life of their own, and we don’t want to mess with the integrity of their pattern and personality. Leaving them natural allows for a slightly fancier upgrade when they’re streamlined into a tight ponytail that showcases your loose curls. To achieve this, apply the Nexxus Oil Infinite Nourishing Hair Oil from your roots to your ends, then gather your hair up on top of your head into a ponytail. Secure your ponytail on the top of your head with a hair tie, and use your fingers to pull the curls apart for maximum impact. If you have any trouble achieving the sleek look (pictured above), use a comb to gather your hair into the ponytail and pull it tight against your head.

2. Loose Curls

Pulling half of your hair away from your face and leaving the other side down is an instant recipe for a hairstyle that’s both chic and mature. Start by defining your curls by using the Dove Style + Care Curls Defining Mousse and let your hair air-dry. You can also diffuse them if you’re in a rush. Part your hair on the side, and gather a small piece from the front of your hairline and twist it back. Pin it in place with two crisscrossed bobby pins, and hide the pins underneath a back layer of hair. Finish off with a mist of the Catwalk by TIGI Work It Hairspray. This particular hairspray works to condition your hair as it holds it in place — while also providing your hair with some gorgeous shine.
