Are you embarrassed by your tight curls that make your head seem like a bush? Well, it’s time to go the ‘big hair, don’t care’ route and embrace your hair type. If you thought that you can’t possibly experiment with curly locks ever, you are so wrong. Sure, curly hair has its struggles—the frizz, the unruliness and the lack of haircut options. But that hardly means you can’t experiment with hairstyles. Think we’re joking, aren’t you? Here’s a roundup of easy hairstyles for girls you can try now...
Before you begin
Curly hair has its own challenges. But it’s not so difficult to care for if you’re treating your hair to the right products meant for your hair type. What you need is a shampoo and conditioner range that works towards smoothening your unruly hair along with replenishing the moisture in it. We suggest you rely on the something gentle like the Sunsilk Nourishing Soft and Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner. As it is enriched with a fusion of 5 oils including Argan, Coconut and Almond, it will leave your hair nourished and soft. With this range in your hair care stand, your curls will slowly but surely become far more manageable.
Sure, you might envy girls with poker straight hair but remember they’re also struggling with lack of volume every day—something that you don’t need to worry about. Create a voluminous braided ponytail for a special do. Just add braids on either sides and tie your hair into messy ponytail hairstyles for this look. The best part about this hairstyle is that it can go from an easy day look for lunch with friends to the perfect hairdo for a wedding look. To take it a notch higher switch the simple braids for French ones to make it look super sleek and chic. Make sure to secure the braids well with bobby pins and small black rubber bands so that your hair stays in place throughout the day.
You probably don’t believe this but when you have curls, the half-up half-down hairstyle looks breathtaking on your hair type. Plus, it takes barely two minutes and still looks like a million bucks! You can either tie a tight knot and then accessorise the knot with a hairpin or simply make a loose knot for a pretty look like this one here. Another great option is making a half bun taking a small portion of your hair and securing it with a black rubber band or hair pins. Fake flower clips and attractive scrunches are cool ways to amp up the look.
When you have big hair, your bun just looks voluminous on its own. No added texturising sprays, no drama. Just air dry your hair after a shower, create a braid and then tie your hair into a bun with the braids on display. If you’re going for a night out, leave your hair as is but if it’s a wedding you’re attending, add some flowers to your braid hairstyle. The versatile bun works even for office days, helping keep your hair looking neat and sleek rather than a hot mess. If you’re planning to go out for a more formal occasion and have no time to switch hairstyles before leaving. Tidy up your bun by pinning down loose ends or grab a curling iron to quickly add some soft curls too and few strands in the front. This will help take care of any loose hair and also add some texture to the otherwise limp and flat strands
A cascading loose braid with micro braids? Now that’s how you nail a wedding look even if you have curly hair. This one works better if you have a longer length of hair so the effect is as dramatic as possible. If you’re no pro at making braids, Stress not! Tie your hair into a tight braid and then use your fingers to slightly loosen the braid giving it a natural and voluminous look. Add an embellishment at the back and you’re so sorted!
If you have a busy day ahead, this one’s for you. The tuck under braid is perfect for monsoons if you want to stay away from the frizz. Start with a French braid and then tuck your hair underneath or tie it into a loose bun securing it with pins. Easy peasy! To make it even more dramatic and stand out you can use a cloth hair band in the front and then tuck the hair under it. If you’re the kind that loves bows, add one to the back!
You can’t say no to this one—the top knot or half buns has been trending and there’s no reason why your curly hair can’t handle it. Sure it’s going to be a voluminous one. But what’s life without braving trends, right? This hairdo is quick and super easy. Grab a portion of your hair and tie it into a bun/knot. Keep it in place with a sturdy rubber band. To add a more feminine touch leave out a few strands of hair from the front and straighten or curly them. This will pull the whole look together without you putting in too much effort.
The low ponytail is another super quick hairdo for girls on the run. Take a center parting and start making two braids on either side. Tie them with small rubber bands and then collect all your hair together and tie it with a strong hair tie. You can skip the rubber band and simply make a ponytail with the loose strands from the braids.
This one is a rage all over the internet! Right from Cara Delevingne to Ariana Grande, every celeb is spotting the 2 buns look. Divide your hair into two equal sections. Either take a part and tie a knot or bun leaving some hair behind or take the entire section and pull it up into a tight bun. Quick and Uber cool!
