Blonde curly hair feels less dense than darker shades; that’s because our eyes pick up the surface quality on pale hues and perceive the outlines on deeper ones. Keep it in vogue with the sandy blonde highlights like the one pictured.

This classic shape provides uniform distribution of body throughout the complementary medium length. The sweeping front and golden brown shade customize the style. For curly hair, bangs can sometimes feel blocky; angling them flatters the cheekbones and accentuates the eyes.

27. Relaxed and Rumpled Corkscrews

One of the easiest ways to make spirals seem modern is wear them a little messy. The curly bangs in this look are sparse, allowing strands to separate and articulate, contrasting the overall density. After drying, slide fingers underneath and massage to fluff.

28. Bookish Brunette Babe

Glasses can present a challenge for curly hairstyles with bangs. The solution is to wear side bangs that fall an inch or so above the brows so they complement, not compete with, the frames. Unbroken length at the sides and back prevents cowlicks.

29. Chopped and Twisted

Using a spiral technique—where hair is twisted once at the scalp and then wrapped lengthwise down the barrel of an iron—produces an evenly curled effect. Choppy straight bangs and silver ombre ends incorporate popular color trends into the sweet design.

30. Curly Pixie Cut

Sometimes those with natural curls are afraid to go short, but this look proves there’s nothing to fear. Graduated shapes that build up weight toward the interior supply structure to coils. The elongated tendrils in the front are a playful touch.

31. Curly Bob with Purple Streaks

Sometimes spiral curls can look too precious, especially on women with thick hair which can be overpowering. To upgrade your hairstyle to a more cutting-edge look, opt for a beautiful hair color. A deep purple is a lovely choice for perfect brunette curls. If you worry about breakage or committing to one color, try a semi-permanent formula.

32. Inverted Bob with Bangs

Angles and curves offset each other creating shapes that feel perfectly balanced. The sloped edge goes with subtle stacking that shifts heaviness away from the nape. A separate line curves gently above the eyes. Filaments of cream showcase the coil pattern by tracing individual helices.

33. Playful Coiled Corona

Encircling the face with a halo of corkscrews is a pretty and exuberant way to wear shoulder length tresses. Use a diffuser and a handful of mousse to expand and elevate the shape. Keep contours loose for a youthful and free-spirited feeling.
