Long, curly hair that is full of body looks effortlessly sexy and sophisticated. Whether Mother Nature blessed you with curly tresses or you simply want to cheat your way to those flirty waves, there are many hairstyles you can try to shake things up. Team your curls with angled bangs and you’re right on point for a flirty and feminine look that is sure to turn heads wherever you go.
Cacading Curly Ponytail
Get the idea out of your head that ponytails are reserved only for greasy hair days. Nothing oozes glamour quite like a long, full-bodied curly ponytail. Pull your locks over to one side and secure into a ponytail low behind one ear. Let your curls cascade over your shoulder for an effortlessly sultry look. Add a large roller to angled bangs to give them the volume this style commands. If you want to take things up a notch, wear your ponytail sky high instead for a fun and flirty finish.
Sweet and Simple Chignon
Keep things sweet and simple and twist your curls into a cute chignon. Wear your chignon low at the back of your head and leave your angled bangs to take center stage at the front. Pull your curls into a ponytail at the nape of your neck and loosely twist to create a chignon shape. Your long, curly locks will give your chignon all the body and texture it needs. Pin your chignon into position using bobby pins and finish with a spritz of shine spray.
Loose and Lush Waves
Sometimes, the simple options are the ones that give the most striking results. Let your gorgeous long locks do the talking and wear them loose and flowing. If your locks are naturally wavy, simply apply curl-enhancing mousse to your tresses before blow-drying. Gals with poker-straight strands can cheat their way to enviable waves with the help of a curling iron. Wear your angled bangs uncurled and let your beautiful curls steal the limelight they deserve.
Messy and Undone Topknot
If a carefree, laid-back ‘do is your hair preference, the topknot should be your style of choice. The topknot works equally well for day or night and the good news is, it takes a matter of minutes to style. Pull your curly tresses into a sky-high ponytail and secure with a hair tie. Loosely twist the length of your ponytail to create a loose bun and pin into position around the base of your pony. Manipulate that bun with your fingers to give your ‘do a purposefully messy finish. Leave your angled bangs loose and face-framing for a simple, chic ‘do.
