Growing up with curly hair, I thought I only had two hairstyles I could rock: up or down. I believed that in order to have cute hair I had to straighten or curl it with a curling iron because I had no idea what to do with it. Fortunately, today there are SO MANY options and us curly-haired ladies have our pick of what styles are doable and best depending on our hair type. Here are seven of my favorites. What’s a look you love for your curly hair?




This look can be done in a variety of ways. But for the most part, you can achieve this pretty easily with just a hair tie or bobby pins and voila!


The Pineapple


This look works best for medium to short hair. I rocked this when my curls were shoulder-length. If you’ve got long hair this might be harder to achieve depending on your texture.


High bun with laid baby hairs

A high bun is timeless and great for any occasion. This style is pretty straightforward and easy to pull off. The hard part for me has always been dealing with fly-aways and baby hairs. Fortunately, there are plenty of techniques and products made especially for that purpose.


Loose Curly Side Braid


On days when I only have time to refresh and go, this hairstyle is cute and quick. Plus who doesn’t love a good side braid?


Big Messy Bun

If you’re like me you see influencers IG models with those loose curl buns and wonder: “How do they get it to stay!?” Watch and learn ladies!



I absolutely love love love this look. It can be a little tricky if you’re not a french braider but it can also be done with twists instead of braids. It’s super cute! The tutorial starts at 6:46.


Side Braid

This one is versatile and pretty easy. Here we have another variation of the side braid and it’s stunning on wash n’ go curls at any length and texture.
