Curly hair is always at its best when worn open. Those luscious curls looks all bouncy and voluminous. However, it is also good to style your curls occasionally, especially on non wash days. This would not only make your curls look gorgeous but there will be less frizz since the curls would be in protective hair styles.
There are so many hair styles for curly hair, over which I would like to share some of my personal favorites along with some other which are quite easy and quick to make.
- Worn Open to one side or either sides.
2. Crown up.
Take few curl clumps from the crown area, pull it back and secure it with a thin elastic, bobby pins or a small clip.
3. Crown up with twisted hair.
The first part of this hairstyle is same as above. However, after securing the hair with an elastic we need to take few hair from below the secured hair clump and twist it around the elastic until the end of that hair section and pin it below using bobby pins in a way that the elastic is hidden under the hair twisted.
4. Messy half up hairstyle.
Again, this is similar to the above two hairstyles however while pulling the hair through the elastic or a band instead of pulling all out we secure them in half to look like a messy ball.
5. One side twist
Section your hair as per your convenience. Now, from the section which has less hair, take few curl clumps and twist them until middle and secure with bobby pins.
6. Two sided twist
Same like above, twist hairs on both sides and secure with bobby pins.
7. Messy half up using clutch.
We secure the upper half section of hair under a clutch.
8. Low pony tail.
9. High pony tail
With hair elastic alone With hair elastic and twisted hair around it.
10. Two sided ponytail.
11. Lower Messy bun.
Secure all your hair in a low pony tail with the help of an elastic. Section them in two. Take the first section and twist it gently around the other section and pin it up. Now take the remaining hair and twist them around the first bun in the opposite direction and secure with bobby pins
12. Higher messy bun.
This is similar to a low messy bun, just that the pony should be high and the remaining steps are same as lower bun 🙂 You can set the baby hair at the back of your head and near the forehead using a toothbrush and gel.
13.Lower two sided bun
This is again similar to lower messy bun but on both the sides 🙂
14. Up and down pony aka illusionist ponytail
Over here we divide the hair in two equal sections, the upper part and lower part. Then we need to tie a medium level ponytail with the lower part hair and then another ponytail above that with the upper part which would literally cover the lower pony to illusionize a longer ponytail.
15. Half up ponytail
This style is the perfect half of the above style. In this we leave the lower section of hair as it is and tie only the upper section.
16. Messy side braid
Partition your hair accordingly. Then bring all your hair to one side and section them in three equal parts. Start the braid by bringing over the right part of hair in between the middle and left part. Now bring the left section of hair in between the middle and right part. Continue this until you reach at the end of that braid and finally secure with a thin elastic.
17. French braid
Start your braid from the center of your crown. Take three small sections and start braiding. When you are done with two sets of braid, get a small section of hair from either side one by one to add with the left and right sections of braid. Continue this until you are at the end of your braid when you can finish off with an elastic or band.
18. The Pineapple
Well, a curly girl is incomplete without a pineapple hairstyle 😀 This style is mainly done at the time you go to bed to secure your curls from frizz and tangles. However, you can wear it outside as well. So, for doing this style grab all your hair and bring it near your crown, secure with an elastic and you are done.
So, these are some of the hairstyles which i think is pretty easy and will not take a long time to do. And among these my favorite ones are Up and down pony aka illusionist ponytail, High ponytail, Messy half up hairstyle, Messy high bun and crown up style. I hope all of you like the post. Please do try them if you have not already and comment below if you too have your favourite in the list. Have a great weekend! 🙂
