Beautiful Ways To Style Curls
Hair accessories are having a serious moment, and there's no way to recall one of the better accessories from the 80s and 90s by adding a chunky barrette to your ‘do. There are a huge variety to choose from, whether you go with a more bespoke barrette or buy from your local box store. To use a barrette, refresh your curls and give yourself a little lift at the roots to create volume. Gather your curls in a half-up, half-down style, and secure the top half of your clip about midway down your head. Pull out some small tendrils to soften the look.
In another throwback to the 80s, scrunchies have become widely available again, and just about everyone is wearing them. One of the great things about a scrunchie for a curly girl is that the soft cloth generally tends to be pretty curl safe, and allows you to have a ponytail without pulling or tearing your strands. Start by refreshing your curls with a leave in conditioner or curl refreshing spray. Flip your curls over and shake them out, then gather the strands at the back of your head. Secure with a scrunchie, and then fluff your ponytail. Its as easy as that! If you'd like, you can frame your face with a few small baby curls.
Over the shoulder braid:
Braids are fabulous because not only are they pretty easy to do, they can also work as a protective style. Whether you're staying in or going out, a braid is versatile, and can be dressed up for more austere occasions, or left loose for an evening on the couch. Start by gently combing out any knots or tangles, and brush your curls over to the side, whichever you prefer. Divide your curls into three even sections and begin braiding, pulling the braid forward over your shoulder as you go. Once you reached the end you can fasten it with a hair tie, scrunchie, or clip. If you'd like, you can loosen the braid a bit for a softer, more boho look.
