Best Curly Hairstyles for Spring


What are the best hairstyles for curly hair? The answer is always whatever suits your personal style and makes you feel confident in your curls. However, there are some popular trends for spring that will never go out of style with the help of Ouidad products that nourish and moisturize your curls, creating bounce and shine that lasts throughout the season.

Curly Hair Ponytail

A simple ponytail showcases your curly hair while pulling it away from your face, keeping you cool when the temperature rises. This style works best with long hair — if you have short hair, the style looks more like a bun (which looks super stylish, too!). Gently pull your hair back, then use a coil or XL scrunchy to keep it secure. Pulling your hair too tightly can potentially lead to damage.

Curly Hair Side Braid

The curly hair side braid is a simple hairstyle that doesn't need to be perfect to look great. Simply take three sections of hair from the left or right side of your head, then braid your hair diagonally and secure the braid where it falls against your neck. This braid offers a loose, casual look.

If you just took a shower, the curly hair side braid is an easy way to style your hair and let it air dry. Revitalize your hair between washes with Advanced Climate Control® Restore + Revive Bi-Phase that restores your hair's shine and Botanical Boost® Curl Energizing & Refreshing Spray, that helps bring curls back to life.

French Twist

Contrary to popular belief, clean hair isn’t the best foundation for every hairstyle. Second- and third-day curls create great texture for updos. If you're in a hurry, the French twist loosely styles your hair without pulling the curls too tightly, giving your hair added dimension.

To make a French twist, pin back any front curls or pieces of hair, then take a section of hair from each side of your head and twist it before pinning it into place. You could also make a single large twist and pin it at the back of your head with an extra strong pin that easily slides to secure without causing damage. 

Curly Faux Bangs

Faux bangs are an easy curly hair look that doesn't require a haircut. To style faux bangs, tie your hair in a half-up half-down ponytail. Drape the ponytail over your forehead, then pin the bangs at the base of the ponytail. This creates a set of "bangs" that fall over your face.

To hide the ponytail, wear a hat, bandana or silk scarf that creates the appearance of natural bangs and adds a fun accessory to your outfit. Use Advanced Climate Control® Restore + Revive Bi-Phase to nourish your curls and give your bangs added shine.

Curly Bob

Bobs aren't just for straight hair. A curly bob frames your face and accentuates your curls, bringing out their beauty without excessive styling. The short hairstyle helps your curls maintain their shape because they're not stretched out over several inches. 

When you visit the hairstylist, like at one of our Ouidad flagship salons, ask for a short bob that hangs near your jawline or a longer bob that drapes around your shoulders. Part the bob in the middle for a traditional look, or use a side part for a more casual style. Add a headband for a retro vibe.

Side Pinup

A side pinup sweeps your hair out of your face and gives your hair dimension without hours of styling. Start with the Mongongo Oil Multi-Use Curl Treatment to hydrate and refresh your curls, especially if you haven't washed your hair today. This gives your hair added luster.

Next, make a side part and stretch some of your hair from each section. Pin each section of hair to keep your side part in place and fluff to add volume. 

Space Buns

Inspired by Princess Leia's iconic hairstyle, space buns are a popular style that you see all over Instagram right now. Instead of one bun at the nape of your neck, you'll tie two buns on the top of your head. Leave a section of hair on each side to frame your face.

To start, separate your hair into two sections, then tie your hair in two ponytails. Wrap the hair around the ponytails, and pin the buns into place. Afterward, use Finishing Mist Setting & Holding Spray to hold the style.

Half-Up Half-Down

The half-up, half-down style is an elegant way to showcase your curls. You don't need straight hair to achieve this look, in fact, curly hair provides added texture. For the simplest look, gather a section of hair at the top of your head and tie it back into a ponytail.

If you prefer a more elaborate style, create a high ponytail or tie back your hair into a bun. You can also make two braids for a chic, natural look and add a bow, hairpin or flower to accessorize your look.

With these easy hairstyles for curly hair, you'll have Instagram-ready looks that show off your beautiful curls throughout the season.
