Curly hair is incredibly beautiful and magical and versatile! Here are some of the many looks I have played around with over the last few months while learning new ways to style my hair. Twist Outs, Braid Outs, Wash n Go’s, Go To Up Do’s, and more!

TWISTS  

Oh’ how I love them. They are incredibly simple to do and can easily be styled under a hat or scarf until they dry. They make my hair smaller but way more defined. I love twists for a classic look!

BRAID OUTS

I think braid outs are one of the easiest styles to do. As with twists, there are some lovely ways to style them until they dry and they give your hair a beautiful texture. By day two or three of a braid out I also find my hair has more length. I wrote my whole routine in an article so have a look if you would like more details!

Wash n Go

The wash n go is probably my most popular style. Its has the least real planning involved. I can rock it a few days in a row and I would honestly say I think it actually looks better with time! I think I have gone 5 days before. Shhh… lets keep it between us. I showed a few different versions of my wash n go’s. They vary depending on what day I am on, what products I used, how I wrapped it the night before. I also love to use a pick or wide tooth comb to increase the volume even more. I literally keep one in my purse at all times and if I leave home without it I just feel like a lost puppy.

BUNS

Bun’s are definitely my low time, low energy, low expectations-for-my-day type go-to. I mean they can be very cute but they are so low maintenance that they make a lovely backup plan!

HEAD WRAPS, SCARVES, & ACCESSORIES

Head scarves are not just a bedtime look! With the endless patterns, colour combinations, and textures, head scarves are a must have accessory at all times! I love to travel in them, to sleep in them, to work out in them, to cut-a-rug in them, to strut down 5th ave or waltz by the Eiffel Tower in them… I mean the list goes on my friends. Don’t tempt me to continue! I have a few other hair accessories I always keep around, even on holidays, but I am looking to buy more!

STRAIGHT & STYLED

I rarely wear my hair straight. Before the following photos I actually hadn’t straightened my hair in about 5 years. I think it is another fun style curly girls can easily take advantage of but you just need to learn the best ways to do it without heat damage. I had mine done by my lovely friend and hair guru, Monica from MoKnowsHair.com. I got to model for her tutorial on Holiday Hair Styles. I felt like such a princess being pampered like that!

These don’t even scratch the surface of all the amazing styles you can do with natural curly hair, but they have been my go-to looks so far! I will challenge myself to be more creative and will share them. If you have any suggestions or questions, leave them in the comments!
