Big Curls with Bangs

Bangs are making a huge comeback, coming in all lengths and textures. If you’ve been avoiding curly bangs, you’re missing out!
When done on curly hair, bangs soften your features and frame your face in a beautiful way. They also elevate your personal style, being that they are a bold fashion statement.
Since curls shrink when dry, you should cut your bangs when your hair is dry for the best results. Then, wet your hair, add moisturizing products, let it dry, and then shake your head to separate the curls and give them volume.
If you’re not comfortable with hair scissors, reach out to a hairstylist who knows curly hair. They can cut your bangs to the perfect length.

Fluffy High Puff


Puffs are always cute, adding a touch of femininity to all of your outfits, from formal to casual. It’s easy to create a high puff on naturally curly hair - all you need to do is smooth down your edges and wrap an oversized band around your hair at the top.
You can add braids or twists in the front or back for a unique look, leaving enough hair at the top to create a fluffy puff.
So, if you’re looking for a great style for summer pool parties, casual get-togethers, or formal events, look no further than the fluffy high puff!

Ditch the Heat and Go for Curls

With summer around the corner, it’s a great time to let your curls loose. Even if you’re used to straight styles, testing out these hairstyles for curly hair will allow you to showcase your natural curls, kinks, and coils. So, set your curls free, and give one of these hairstyles a try. You’ll be glad you did!
