Although, straight hair are more manageable, curly hair gives a more sassy and soft look. Straight hair mostly gives a formal look, but to go for a more messy, sophisticated, or romantic look one needs to go with certain hairstyles. And those who have natural curls, you should learn to embrace them. An updo is great for days when you want to accentuate your elegant dress or jewelry. Check out the ideas given below for some great updos.
How to Get Curly Hair
Shampoo your hair, apply a conditioner and leave it on for 2-3 minutes. Again wash your hair properly. Towel dry your hair, and on wet hair, apply a sea salt spray or a hair curling mousse. Scrunch your hair to get a wavy texture. Let them dry naturally, and you will have sexy beach waves. If you wish to get well-defined ringlet curls, then twirl sections of your hair on your index finger and blow dry.
If you wish to sport a messy updo, then wash your hair on the same day. However, if you want to create elegant hairstyles for weddings or proms, then wash the hair a day before. This will prevent any frizz, and make the hair more manageable for the curly hairstyles you plan to create next day.
