80 + Stunning Hairstyles for Curly Hair That You Will Fall In Love With

There is no doubt about it – curly hair can be both a blessing and a curse. Those born with naturally straight locks will never fully appreciate the time and effort needed to maintain perfect, bouncy curls! Then again, the struggle is very much worth it, as very few other hair types are as versatile and beautiful. You can style curly hair in a myriad of gorgeous ways, or experiment with various stunning cuts. If you’re not sure where to get started – we’ve got your back! In this article, we have compiled a list of 80 + amazing hairstyles for curly hair that you will absolutely love!

Hairstyles for curly hair – beautiful bouncy locks

Before we get started, here are some useful curly hair care tips that will make your life much easier!

  1. Avoid combing and brushing your hair. That’s right – it might sound strange, but brushing and combing can actually lead to frizzy, unruly curls!
  2. Opt for high quality hair care products, such as specialized shampoos and conditioners.
  3. Ditch the dryer – whenever possible, let your hair dry naturally. Hairdryers can be an absolute nightmare for curly hair, leading to overheating and permanent damage.
  4. Don’t over-wash it! We get it – everyone loves that fresh hair feeling, but when you have curls, it’s best to wash them only once every three days. This will ensure that your tresses stay beautiful and healthy. There are exceptions, however. Fr example, if you lead a very active lifestyle, you can wash your curly hair every other day.
  5. Use nourishing products. It can be a bit confusing at times, as the market seems to be swamped with thousands of different oils, butters and mousses. Our advice is to experiment and try different products, until you find one that’s right for you!
  6. Love and appreciate your curly hair! Yes we know – it can be frustrating (not to mention time consuming!) to style your curls. There are bad hair days and tons of money spent on grooming products. But in the end of the day, curly hair is uniquely beautiful, and all of your efforts and care will be so worth it!
