When you have curly hair, all of your hairstyles are somewhat messy. Those curls have a mind of their own and they do what they want! But still, there’s an honest effort to tame your mane from time to time. For these hairstyles, you embrace their wild texture but with some sort of control.
Your curls are gorgeous and you should show them off. But sometimes, their frizz and puffiness can be too overwhelming, especially around the face. Help tame them by pulling the front of your hair back in a tight French crown braid. This will help control your hair around your face but still show off your gorgeous locks at the back.
Use a Headband
If you don’t have the time, patience or skills to create a headband out of a braid, then simply use a headband. Headbands are a great way to amp up your look but tame down those curls. Wrap it around your head in a boho style to help control the crown but then let the wild curls be free from the headband down.
Messy Topknot with Double Headband
If you don’t want to wear your wild mane down then tie it up in a messy topknot that shows off all your texture in a controlled manner. Use a double headband to keep the curls down. Pull a little bit of hair through in between the bands of the double headband to give this look lots of added volume.
Pull The Front Back
Embrace the natural volume of curly hair by pulling the front of your hair back in a halfback hairstyle. This will create lots of volume at the front of your head (perfect for shorter face shapes) but it will show off the tamer curls that lie underneath the top layer of your hair.
Pull It Back in a Twisted Ponytail
Ponytails are the easiest and surest way to tame your mane but they can seem boring. Spice up the ponytail look by parting your curls down the center and twisting them back to create lots of volume at the crown and adding something special to the ponytail. Best of all, a ponytail really shows off your great curls in a big beautiful way.
Half-Up Curly Hairstyle
If you woke up late or you’re simply running out for some errands and you don’t have the time or the will to put a lot of time into your mane, then this is the perfect look. Simply grab your curls and pull them back in a half-up bun. Leave loose strands around your face to finish off this casual-chic look.
