We always love a good braid on the weekend. Mark this down as a perfect style for naturally curly hair updos.

We love how elegant, but not stuffy this top knot curly hair option looks. This is just one of many updos for curly hair that’s great if you have shoulder-length or longer hair. Start off this style by braiding the front section of your hair backwards. If you need a refresher, here is our tutorial on braiding curly hair! Then, secure the braid at the end. Pull all of the rest of your hair up and into a top knot. Play with the top knot style until you get little curls that stick up for even more texture.

2. Easy Curly Updos: Twisted Half-Updo

It’s all twisty and perfect. Curly updos can be fast to create too!

This twisted half-updo from NYFW is so dreamy. It’s also surprisingly easy to create! Keep this in your updos for curly hair folder. All you need to do is master the French twist. It’s just like the French braid, but instead of three pieces, it’s only two. You simply take two sections from the front of your hair and twist. Add another small section of hair to the bottom section of the twist and twist again. Keep on going until you’ve twisted to the center back of your hair. When you get there, secure it in place with bobby pins. Finish off this style with lots of shine. We like a light misting of Bed Head by TIGI Get Twisted Anti-Frizz Finishing Spray over the entire finished style.

If you’re starting out on freshly washed hair, we recommend this quickie ponytail style, it’s a go-to for naturally curly hair updos. While your hair is wet, work on getting those cute defined curls, so your style will be done in minutes. We like to use Bed Head By TIGI Foxy Curls Contour Cream to define curls, and then blow-dry with the diffuser attachment. When you’ve got your defined, dried curls, pull them up into a high ponytail. Fluff out your curls to get the biggest tail possible. Voila! Another great updo for curly hair!

4. Easy Curly Updos: Textured Bun

Embrace your curls with a textured bun.

One of our fave curly updos is the simple, textured bun. This look only asks you to lean into your natural texture, give it a little enhancement with a styling product like The Good Stuff Curl Definition Jelly. Once you’ve got your curls on point, create an easy, low bun and dress it up with a fun scrunchy or hair clip.

Want an easy but edgy style?  Something modern for naturally curly hair updos? Try the curly fauxhawk. For these updos for curly hair, it’s helpful to have hair that is just about shoulder length. Create even sections horizontally down your head, you’ll need four or five depending on how thick your hair is. Then, just pull each section into a tight ponytail. Make sure you line up the ponytails and give the tails a good fluff to get that fauxhawk look.
