Long Voluminous Waves

A head of hair with both length and voluminous waves, is most highly coveted. Most hair types lack the texture to hold curling efforts for very long at this length of hair. But curly girls can rock this hairstyle hands-down. This layered haircut emphasizes the softness of the hair and looks so very feminine. For those with fine hair texture try some dimensional hair color with face framing highlights for added spark and fullness.

Natural Curls

When we’re talking natural curls it’s not the same as the afro of the 70’s. Natural curl hairstyles embrace all the unique possibilities Afro-American women have with styling their curls “naturally.”  Take inspiration from how Solange Knowles has styled her naturally curly hair with this look. More and more women are exhibiting a certain boldness and fieriness in their persona by going “natural” and loving it!

Tight Spiral Curls

Taylor Swift gives her long layered hair more twist and shine with the help of a curling wand. This is close to curly hair’s natural look but the wand makes curls more exact and consistent, and closes the cuticle, hence added shine.

For your best looks, always keep your curls well hydrated. Condition, condition, condition, and apply your favorite oil for extra added shine!
