5. Two Buns

The lazy bun is a timeless and effortless solution for taming unruly curly hair. Despite undergoing transformations over the years, it remains a hot favourite. For an edgier look, channel the ’90s and make it a twin bun style! Perfect for enjoying the spring sun. It keeps your curls off your neck and lets them breathe in warmer weather. Need a little inspiration? Check out Slim Reshae’s tutorial on how to create this cute style. Experiment with both low and high buns to see what looks best on you. You can even add flat-twisted or braided hair to feed into the twin buns for extra oomph!

4. Slick and Low Pony

We all have days when our curls lose their life after a few wash-n-go’s. The slick, low ponytail is a perfect quick fix that works in almost any setting, thanks to its sleekness. It’s suitable for both long and short curly hair, and if you want more volume, consider adding extensions at the back!

To achieve this look, slick your hair back with water and gel, create a tight low ponytail, then wrap it before bed. In the morning, you’ll wake up with a super-sleek ponytail. Finish by spritzing some water or leave-in conditioner on your ends for extra curl definition. Voilà!

3.) Curl-Friendly Hats

Some days are for running errands, going to the gym and knocking things off of our to-do lists. On days like those, throwing on a hat is the perfect stand-in for great curly hairstyles. Unfortunately, for the longest time, there was a silly myth that girls with big curls couldn’t wear hats the same way straight-haired girls could. Most hat brands weren’t curl-friendly. Nowadays, there are so many ways to wear cute hats and show off your beautiful curls at the same time. Thanks to YouTube and brands like Ivy Park, girls with curls are no longer left behind.

If you can’t get your hands on a curl-friendly cap, then head to YouTube for tons of DIY tutorials on how to make your own. There are tons of ways to showcase your curls, from ponytails to afros, with a visor or a hat. All you need is a regular baseball cap and your hair and you’ve got the sporty chic look down.

2. Half-Up Half-Down Top Knot

The half-up half-down hairstyle has stood the test of time and continues to evolve. Lately, the trendy top knot has taken over social media – with girls of all hair types showcasing this easy, versatile style. The top knot is perfect for both freshly washed hair, giving a sleek look, or day-old hair for a more effortless effect.

The top knot half-up style is grand for showing off your features while keeping your curls out of the way. Wear it anywhere – at brunch, a concert, in the park, or while running errands – it suits any occasion and guarantees a stunning look.

For a fun variation, leave the bun out and let your curls cascade over the top. Shorter hair? No problem. Twist the top of your hair back instead of tying it into a ponytail.

1. Half-Braided Wash-n-Go

Wash day can be a daunting, time-consuming task, especially for those with curly hair. But curls are versatile; they can be styled wet or dry. Curly hair communities often refer to the “wash-n-go” style which accentuates the hair’s natural bounce and volume. So, when you’re running short on time, these quick wash-n-go hairstyles will come to your rescue.

The half-braided wash-n-go is an innovative take on the classic curly ‘fro. This chic look aims to draw attention to your face. After washing your hair and applying a leave-in conditioner, divide your hair into four sections. Braid each section towards the back of your hair, and fasten the braids with hair ties. Once you’re done with the top section, fluff your curls and voila! You’re ready to roll. For a step-by-step guide, check out the tutorial video above.
