Learn how to get beautiful curly hair with our styling tips for straight, wavy, and curly hair.
Suffering from a bad case of curl envy? If you’re a straight-haired gal, you might think bouncy curls are unattainable for your hair type. And if you already sport naturally curly or wavy hair, fighting frizz and achieving that perfect curly texture is probably a daily struggle. So what can you do to get the shiny, luscious curls you crave?
The key is learning how to work with your hair’s natural texture using the right products and styling tools to achieve gorgeous, natural-looking curls. Here’s how to get beautiful curly hair whether you’re starting with straight, wavy, or naturally-curly locks.
It takes a little more effort to get curls when you have naturally straight hair, but fear not—it can be done! Here’s how to make straight hair curly.
If your hair already has a wavy texture to it, soft, defined curls are easy to achieve. Here’s how to make your wavy hair curly.
4. Smooth frizzy flyaways with nourishing hair oil. A frizz-fighting hair oil helps moisturize, define, and smooth curls and waves without weighing hair down.
5. Spot-treat flat or misshapen curls and waves with a no-heat styling method. Pin-curling works great for this. Simply twist and coil any frizzy or lifeless sections of hair into small buns, and secure with bobby pins. Wait about 10 minutes, then remove the bobby pins to reveal soft, frizz-free ringlets.
6. Protect your style with hairspray. Spritz your style with a frizz-fighting hairspray to fight humidity and keep your curls in place all day.
7. Get regular trims. Dryness and damage can weigh your strands down, sapping its elasticity and preventing curls from bouncing back into shape. Getting rid of dry, damaged ends with regular trims helps ensure your curls stay fresh and healthy.
If you’re lucky enough to sport naturally curly locks, all you need to focus on is defining those curls and combating frizz. Here’s how to get the curls of your dreams.
