1. Side braid hairstyles for curly hair
If you like your curly hair stylishly secured away from your face, then you’ll love this side braid hairstyle. This look is not only practical for keeping stray strands at bay, it’s the perfect look to take you from the gym to brunch too.

2. High ponytail hairstyles for curly hair
‘90s lovers will appreciate this super high, scrunchie ponytail with jaw-dropping cascading curls.
Create this look in a matter of seconds by flipping your hair forward and piling your hair high into a ponytail. Position your hair to fall over one side for dramatic effect.
3. Curly bangs
Bangs can really take your look from drab to fab! So, if you’re looking for new hairstyles for curly hair, why not ask your stylist for some long bangs? And if like this model you have a shoulder-length long bob, you can channel the popular ‘70s shag haircut.
4. Shag haircut
Shag haircuts are mostly spotted on long bobs but that doesn’t mean to say that if you have long curly hair you can’t get in on the shag fun.
Ask your hairstylist to shape your hair with layers for that tousled shag effect and of course, you need the eyebrow length bangs.
5. Wet look hairstyles for curly hair
Wet look tresses are everywhere right now and there is no denying just how fab they look on this hair type.

6. Tucked ponytail
Ready to upgrade your ponytail hairstyle for a chic runway style? Of course, you are. Now we know you might be thinking this tucked ponytail is far beyond your styling capabilities, but you’ll be pleased to know it’s far easier to create than it looks.
Start by creating a low and loose ponytail, then with your hands create a hole to flip the ‘tail’ of your hair through. It really is as simple as that.
7. Curly bob
Due to the dreaded shrinkage that occurs with curly hair, bob haircuts tend to not be hugely popular hairstyles for curly hair. But if done right, they can be true show-stoppers. Making your curls fluffy like this model is a great way to add play up the texture to your look.
