Let’s accept it - managing curly hair is no easy task. From maintaining your curls to finding hairstyles that don’t take hours to create, curly hair girls don’t have it easy. But worry not, that’s what we’re here for.

We strongly believe that having curly should not hold you back from experimenting with hairstyles. Therefore, we’ve come up with two simple and chic hairstyles that can be created in 5 minutes, flat. Read on to find out what they are.

 

High ponytail

High ponytail - Curly hair hairstyle

This hairstyle can easily be dressed up or down, depending on the look you are trying to recreate and the event you plan to wear it at. If you are planning to wear this hairstyle to work, it will go beautifully with your business suits and your favourite lip colour. But for the evenings, we suggest you adorn the ponytail with cute hair accessories or scrunchies for that added oomph.

Step 01: Gather your hair into a ponytail and secure it where you want.

Step 02: To secure your ponytail, we recommend that you insert a couple of bobby pins from the underneath the ponytail.

Step 03: To ensure that your curls don’t lose their body and texture, enhance the ends using a curl-defining serum or cream.

 

Quick side braid

Quick side braid - Curly hair hairstyle

This hairstyle barely takes 2 minutes to recreate and is perfect for second or third-day hair.

Step 01: Start by making a deep side-parting. Further, separate the sections into two more, and that should leave you with four sections in total.

Step 02: Take the section on the far left and cross it under the section next to it. Repeat the same on the third and fourth section until you reach the end and your braid is complete.

Step 03: Take a transparent elastic and secure your braid with it. You can even add a ribbon or a hair accessory if you wish.

Step 04: For a messy look, you can tug at the sections, but remember to be gentle or your braid will come undone.
