Curly hair is tricky to tame. On the upside, its natural volume and texture make it quite easy to style, even when you're traveling. Here are some low-maintenance 'dos for when you’re on the go.
1. Sleek Ponytail
Tight curls add a fun and interesting twist to this classic hairstyle. Let them work for you by slicking your hair back and securing it with an elastic. Stick two or three bobby pins on the underside of the ponytail to keep it lifted, and scrunch up your curls to create even more volume and texture.
2. Pinned Back
If you want to show off your tresses without them getting in your way, pin your hair back to a deep side part or to a half-pony. It takes only two seconds, but it’s a classic and versatile look you can wear with any outfit. Try this hairstyle when you want to look a little more put-together at work—it's an easy enough style to achieve right at your desk.
3. Top Knot
Since curls have a lot more structure and volume than straight hair, buns and top knots are way easier to achieve. Gather your hair up into a high ponytail and twist your curls around the elastic. Pin the ends to secure the bun, but don’t worry about a few strands coming loose—they add an effortless and romantic vibe to your look. Pair the hairstyle with a dainty sundress when you go out to brunch with some friends.
4. Head Wrap
This style is ideal when your curls are out of control but you still want to keep your hair down. Smooth your hair away from your face and wrap a pretty scarf around your hairline. The scarf adds an extra stylish element to your selfies and can double as a statement piece when you pair it with a simple outfit.
When you plan your looks with these hairstyles in mind, use a shampoo and conditioner duo that helps nourish and strengthen your strands.
