Once it’s firm, you’re going to want to twist the pony around the base while leaving a few strands unclenched and loose. This will create that a) hold together your big mane energy and b) ensure you enjoy that #wokeuplikethis hairdo - perfect for a grocery run, girl’s brunch or even a laid back date - this curly hairstyle for long hair has got your back!

Exuding those divine princess plus NYC baddie vibes, this curly hairstyle for long hair has made it everywhere from mag covers, to ramps to the A-list parties - it’s just a new way to rock the big hair energy. Curious to know more about this way of taming? Let’s roll. First things first, this hairstyle is where you play with the current, instead of pushing back - we mean, instead of fighting the baby hair around the forehead that just refuses to comb back, comb them front, on to your forehead and apply the gel on them. If you’re looking for an unmatched gel, we’re gaga over the TRESemme Curl Care Gel X-hold.
If you’re feeling artsy, we suggest making some cool patterns - after all, effort shows! To do so, you don’t need an expensive tool, just use a toothbrush to curl and swirl them into shapes. And viola, there you have it…baby hair art! And now that you’ve put all that effort into the deets for all your strands, bring ‘em to one side, brush it neat and secure all that fluff in a ponytail or side bride. To elevate the oomph, you can use a fancy buckle. And that’s it ladies, with a tad bit of effort. You’re done and dressed.

When it comes to the cornrowars chat you also got to see what suits you - only a result of trial and error! While we love a good ‘faux’ undercut braid, where you tightly weave your hair into braids on one side and style your hair on the other side, there are loads of funky ones for you to choose from.
