Are you growing out your curls? Or perhaps you already have long strands, but have fallen into a bit of a rut when it comes to styling. If so, you’ve come to the right place. Taking care of and styling long curly hair doesn’t have to be a burden. In fact, many curly girls spend years and years working at growing out their strands long. Instead, your door is open for tons of great opportunities and options when it comes to caring for your strands. Here are some even more amazing styles for long curly hair. Give these styles a look through and see if any resonate with you. If you find one you love, don’t forget to let us know in the comments.
When it comes to getting dressed up, is there anything more classic than a bun? Buns work really for styling curly hair, because not only do they contain your long locks, it also works as a protective style. This makes a bun a great choice for a rainy day, high humidity weather, or even for second, third, or fourth day curls (hey, we aren’t judging!). To get this look, flip your curls upside down and run your fingers through to give some more volume. Wrap your curls up on the top of your head into a bun, and secure with bobby pins or a hair tie. You can pull down some extra strands as needed.
Sky high pony:
Is there anything more amazingly versatile than a ponytail? We don’t think so. Ponytails work on so many levels. You can use them for protective styling, to give a boardroom meeting, or to keep your hair out of your face during your workout. You can slick your curls back if you’d like a sleek, sophisticated look, or fluff up your strands and let your natural texture shine. Either way, you really can’t go wrong. We think this sky high ponytail is extra glam. Pull your strands back and secure at the top of your head. For an extra touch of sophistication, wrap a bit of hair around the ponytail to hide the elastic and secure with a bobby pin.
Accessories for days:
One of the great things about curls is that they often hold accessories in place really well. When others wish they could rock a hair band or a fabulous big pearl clip that slides out of straight hair, you know your accessories are going to stay in place. Hair accessories are an amazing way to really jazz up your curls. You can experiment with hair bands, different types of clips, combs, sticks, barrettes, and hair holders. Really, the sky is the limit for you, curly girl! Don’t hesitate to grab a few tried and true accessories, or put a few more in your cart next time you’re browsing at your local beauty supply store.
