If you have naturally curly hair, you’ve been blessed with some seriously gorgeous locks. Of course, a curly hair care routine is no easy feat, and figuring out ways to style your mane isn’t either. When you want to take a break from wearing your curly locks in all their lion mane-esque glory, try one of the following four hairstyles for curly hair. From the hairstyling products you’ll need to a step-by-step tutorial, we’ve got you covered.


Half-up hairstyles are a huge trend right now, especially half-up top knots. You’ve likely seen women with all hair textures rocking this look, but if you haven’t seen any with hair similar to your own, let us tell you: this simple yet fun style will look even more beautiful when paired with your naturally curly locks.

What you’ll need:

Clear elastics

Get the look:

Step #1: Section your hair

To start this style, you’ll want to section your hair into a top and bottom section. The size of your sections depends on how big you want your top knot to be. To keep things simple, part your hair starting at the top of one ear and ending at the top of the opposite ear.

Step #2: Create your top knot

Take the top section of your hair and throw it into a top knot bun. How neat or messy you want it to be is totally up to you. Secure it with a clear elastic and you’re good to go!

A flat iron

Get the look:

Step #1: Straighten your hair

For this slicked-back ponytail hairstyle, you’ll need to straighten the top half of your hair. Apply a heat protectant, then use a flat iron to straighten your hair, stopping at the base of your neck.

Step #2: Put your hair up

Pull your hair into a high ponytail, making sure to use your hands to keep your pony smooth and bump-free. Secure your ponytail with an elastic.

Step #3: Make it sleek

Apply hair gel to the straightened portion of your hair, slicking it back towards the curly ends.


Want another quick and simple option for getting your hair out of your face? We know just the thing! A high messy bun is a foolproof hairstyle for girls with curls.

What you’ll need:

Clear elastics

Bobby pins (optional)

Get the look:

Step #1: Put your hair up

Pull your hair back into a ponytail, then twist the ends around the base to form a bun. Secure your hair with a clear elastic and don’t worry if it’s not perfect—that’s part of the look!

Step #2: Fix any bumps and loose ends

Use bobby pins to pin stray hairs into place and secure your bun even more. This step is totally optional as this is a messy, carefree hairstyle—meaning strays are no big deal.

Step #3: Frame your face

Pull a few curly strands loose to frame your face.


This edgy hairstyle is perfect for a girl’s night out or a date night.

What you’ll need:

Bobby pins

Get the look:

Step #1: Part your hair

For this look, you’ll want to start by creating a deep side part to the side of your choosing.

Step #2: Twist your hair

To create your twists, start by grabbing a small section of hair from the side of your head with less hair. Gently twist the hair backward, pulling it tightly against your head. Twist until you pass your ear, then secure the ends in place by marking them with two bobby pins in the shape of an “X”.

Editor’s tip: Use colored or metallic bobby pins to add an extra layer of visual interest!

Step #3: Section and repeat

Grab a small section of hair below your first twist and repeat. Create three to four twists, securing each with bobby pins.
