6 easy hairstyles for curly hair

Wanting to switch up your hair but lacking inspiration for cute hairstyles for curly hair? Or are you just looking for easy curly hairstyles to get you out the door in the morning? Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this article, we explore 6 easy hairstyles for curly hair, step by step!

1. French Braid

A French brand might look hard but with a little, it’s actually an easy hairstyle for curly hair that looks great.

  1. Prep your hair by fully brushing through and getting all tangles out.
  2. Start by gathering a big chunk from the top center.
  3. Separate this big chunk of hair into three even pieces.
  4. Begin by making a traditional braid—hold two strands in one hand, and the third strand in the other.
  5. Simply cross the right strand over the center and then cross the left strand over the center.
  6. Repeat this entire process until you have a few rows.
  7. Keep going and bringing in other pieces of hair. Before crossing a section over you should make sure to take some hair from side of the head and cross-over.
  8. Every time you manage to cross over, work in new small pieces of hair.
  9. Once finished set in place with hair spray. We recommend our Coconut Milk & White Jasmine Hairspray, specifically designed to help reduce frizz and keep hair in place.

And there you have it – a cute and easy hairstyle for curly hair! If you’re really struggling with French braiding and have no extra pair of hand to help you out, we’ve created a separate step-by-step visual guide on how to do it on your own head – check it out here.
