If you are blessed with curly hair and know how to embrace your natural texture, here are some hair ideas to spice up your routine. In these three short videos, Olivia Calabrio, an Instagram blogger known for her numerous tricks for curly girls, shares some easy and chic hairstyles you will want to try.
Leave a few curls around your face, make a French braid, and finish it with a ponytail at the bottom of your head. Don’t worry if you are not an experienced braider – curly hair has loads of texture and won’t show any flaws. Use a dot of smoothing cream to iron out any flyaways at the front and finish your style with a lacy ribbon bow.
In this video, Olivia shares a secret to a perfect middle-part bun: she leaves out the center part of her hair – about an inch from each side of the parting. This method helps position these strands in the right place and avoid any gaps or unevenness.
You can use a sectioning clip to keep this middle part away from the rest of your hair. Then make a high bun and secure the front bits to the base of your updo. Plenty of hair gel will ensure that impeccable uber sleek finish. You can use a toothbrush or a fine-tooth comb to help.
Next, Olivia uses curly hair bun extensions which are a perfect color match for her hair. What a top-notch solution for the day-before-wash hair.
This romantic curly updo would surprisingly take not more than 5 minutes of your time. Put all your hair up in a ponytail and pin the ends using a few bobby pins – as simple as that, your hairstyle is ready.
“How do you pin the hair in the back? Just at the end of the hair or mid-length or do you flip the strand inside and pin it on the scalp?” is one of the questions in the comment section. Indeed, we all want to know this. Olivia responds that she flips the hair up and pins it on the scalp.
This hairstyle is an utter all-rounder that can be dressed up or down. It will look equally good in a gym or running errands, yet it is dressy enough to wear on a night out. Leave it simple or accessorize your curly bun with a silk scarf, headband, or some sparkly pins like Olivia.
