Having curly hair does not mean that you cannot have trendy hairstyles. Have you not seen celebrities look jaw-dropping in their curly hair? So how do they do it? Well, it all comes down to how well you manage it. Curly hair sure is more difficult to manage. But if you know how to appreciate it and make a little extra effort, it can take you a long way. Whether it is a sporty, outgoing or a glamorous look you want, there is plenty to choose from. Some of them are not even time-consuming at all. Given below are 5 very easy and chic hairstyles for curly hair.
- High ponytail
High ponytail is one of the best you can do with a curly hair. The especial thing about this hairstyle is that you can easily pair it up with any get up you want. Whether it is a casual outing or a formal get together, this particular hairstyle has your back at all times. To create the look, gather all your hair over the crown and secure it tightly using a supportive elastic band. Slip two or three bobby pins under the ponytail so as to create a lifted look. When this is done, distribute the hair evenly over the front and the back. This hairstyle only looks good when you have bouncy curls. So you can use a hair cream to create the same effect.
- Side braid
The side braid is one hairstyle that never goes out of style, and it looks even better on curly hair. This hairstyle will hardly take you one minute. Part your hair at the side. You want to style the side section and leave the other as it is. So, start braiding by taking a small section at a time and take it all the way below the crown. When you have finished braiding, secure it using a pin. You are now good to go. You can use a little frizz tamer to make sure your strands do not go haywire.
- Dutch braids
Make a middle parting and start making a three-stranded braid from the front, all the way to the back, taking small sections at a time so as to create a branched look. Braid it all the way down to the hair end and finally secure it with an elastic band.
- Braided topknot
Currently, top knots have become a thing, and it sure does look great on curly hair. When you tie your top knot, just leave out a small section. After you are done with the topknot, take the leftout section, make a braid and wrap it around the knot using bobby pins.
- Half bun
The best thing about half buns is that you can leave it messy and it will still look great. Gather hair from around the crown and twist it into a knot over the crown. Have it secured using bobby pins. You can leave the rest of the hair as it is.
There are also a few other things to keep in mind while handling curly hair. For example, it will do you good to ditch the brush and go for a wide-toothed comb instead. Also, make it a point to trim the split ends regularly to keep your hair looking fresh. Use deep conditioning on your hair to add the extra bounce and gloss. This will put things under control and keep you looking like a goddess.
