CURLS, WITH A TWIST!
This is a great option if you want to add a bit of interest to your otherwise basic curly style. This style is so quick and simple that it will become an instant fave!
How to Style:

  • Begin with dry, naturally curly hair. If you want a little more oomph in your curls, use a diffuser on your dryer to enhance your natural curls.
  • Gather a small section of hair on one side of your head. The section should begin at your hairline. French braid this section of hair so that it ends a few inches behind your ear. Secure it with a bobby pin.
  • Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
Naturally curly hair that’s short is ideal for this look. If you have an oval or elongated face, this look is suitable for you!
Recommended Products:
I love a bit of curl cream if you want to enhance your natural curl and use a diffuser. Try Moroccan Oil Curl Cream.

BRAIDED SIDE SWEEP
Side swept hairstyles continue to be all the rage this season. Add your gorgeous natural curls and a simple French braid and this look will turn EVERY head this summer!
How to Style:

  • Allow your curls to dry naturally, or dry them using a diffuser.
  • Part your hair deeply to one side.
  • Gather the hair that falls below the part and French braid it until it reaches right behind your ears. Secure it using a bobby pin.
  • Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
If you have extra long, thick hair that you want to keep out of your face, this look is great for you! A round face will be elongated by this look.
Recommended Products:
A very light, workable hairspray will be the perfect finishing touch on this style. I like Moroccan Oil Light Finishing Spray.
Tip:
After you secure the braid in place with a bobby pin, be sure you position your curls so that they cover the bobby pin.

THE PUMPED UP PONY
A classic ponytail is the perfect go to style for getting those curls up and off your neck during the hot summer months. For an edgier ponytail that’s actually quite simple to achieve, try this braided look!
How to Style:

  • With dry curly hair, separate a section of your hair that spans between your two eyebrows and extends back to your crown section. Backcomb this section.
  • Take three, one-inch wide vertical sections on each side of your head and braid these sections. They should be French braided until you reach the back of your head. Continue braiding the hair and secure each individual braid with an elastic.
  • Gather the hair from the top front section, and the hair below the braids that isn’t braided, and secure it with a ponytail holder.
  • Take small sections of hair from the ponytail and randomly place them around the ponytail. Be sure to place them so that they hide the ponytail holder.
  • Spray everything with a light hold finishing spray.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
If you have long, thick, natural curls, this is a great option for you. It will allow you to keep your hair out of your face and off your neck. A heart or oval shaped face will be complemented by this style.
Recommended Products:
To achieve fabulous volume in the top, front section of your hair, use a small back combing brush instead of a comb. You will find that you have much less breakage and more volume! I love the Little Wonder Brush by Spornette.

CONVENTIONALLY CURLED
Here is a simple, yet beautiful way to style your short curly hair this season. Nothing extra fancy — just let your curls steal the show!
How to Style:

  • Apply curl cream to your freshly washed hair.
  • Use a diffuser to dry your hair.
  • If you have long hair and still want this look, take small sections, twist them into small buns, and secure them to your head using a bobby pin.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:
If you have short hair with extra springy curls, this look is perfect for you! If you want to keep your style low maintenance, this is a great option. An oval shaped face will be complemented by this look.
Recommended Products:
Try applying Paul Mitchell’s Sculpting Foam mixed with Moroccan Oil before you use the diffuser. It will give your hair plenty of bounce and help to control the frizz.
