Summer is just around the corner and you know what that means—sand, sunshine, and sprinkle-dipped ice cream cones! And when it comes to your beauty routine, summer is the perfect time of year to try out some new hairstyles—especially if you have curly hair. When the weather is hot and humid, try one of these gorgeous hairstyles for curly hair that are totally seasonally appropriate.
Curly Hairstyle Idea #1: Triple Mini Buns
As the saying goes, third time’s the charm, so instead of wrapping one or two buns to keep your curls in line, add in a third for a serious style statement.
How to get the look: Add a dollop of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream to damp hair and allow your hair to dry. Next, brush your hair back from your hairline and split it into three low ponytails before twisting and pinning each into a bun. Use the tail end of a rat tail comb to gently lift your roots at the hairline for added volume.
Curly Hairstyle Idea #2: Twisted Crown
No braiding skills? No problem. This crown is all about being super simple and looking a lot more involved than it actually is.
How to get the look: Part your hair down the middle into two pigtails. Next, create a rope braid with each pigtail and secure the ends with a clear mini elastic. Gently pancake each twist to help add volume and texture to your look. To put on your crown, simply pull each braid up and over your head, making sure to pin the ends underneath the other braid to give the appearance of a never-ending rope crown.
Curly Hairstyle Idea #3: Super-Simple French Twist
This classic with a messy update is perfect for 2017.
How to get the look: Apply an egg-sized amount of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse to damp hair and allow your hair to dry. Once your hair is dry, create a side part and sweep all of your hair over to one side. To help keep your hair in place, insert a bobby pin straight up at the bottom of your hair and one straight down at the top. Next, roll all of your hair in from the ends towards the pinned-down part, pin hair in place, and spray all over with a strong hold hairspray, like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Strong Hold.
Curly Hairstyle Idea #4: Knotted Updo
Knots and curls might seem like your everyday worst nightmare, but when the knots are intentional, just wait and see how gorgeous it can be!
How to get the look: Split your hair into a top and bottom section by parting it horizontally at the crown of your head. Start with the top layer and split it into two even sections, twist each section and tie it into a loose knot before pinning it in place. Next, do the same thing with the lower layer before pinning it directly under the first knot. Once both knots are secured, gently pull at each to create a more uniform, volumized look. Complete your look with a weather-friendly hairspray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Weather Control Hairspray.
Curly Hairstyle Idea #5: High Pineapple Curls
Let your curls hang loose while keeping them off your neck with this super-cute pineapple-inspired ‘do.
How to get the look: Spritz some texture spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray, into damp curls before allowing them to air dry. Next, pull all of your curls into an ultra-high ponytail and secure them with an elastic-free hair tie. Instead of making your ponytail super-tight, simply wrap your hair once so that your curls can breathe. Next, pick your favorite scarf and wrap it around the bottom of your head so that you can tie it into a knot or bow on top. Comfortable and chic? We’re definitely on board.
