The truth is, curls can be played with to create styles for every occasion. I can understand that we often stick with a look that is most easy to maintain and that looks alright, but perhaps we would all benefit from trying out a new style occasionally. You might even come across something that accentuates your features more and gives you a new found confidence. Unless you try, you will never know.
One of the most obvious changes that most curly haired girls dream of is straight hair. It is the same for straight haired girls to wish for more volume that curls can create. Well the transition from curly to straight or vice verso is not so difficult as it has been in the past. It might just be that you need to update your styling tools to allow you to create more looks. Straightening irons for example can be a curly girls best friend when she aspires to have smooth, sleek hair.
The great thing about curly hair styles is that there is not just one type of curl like there is just one type of straight. From loose waves, spirals to corkscrew curls - the different looks you can achieve vary on the tightness of the curl.
If you have short hair, curls can really add edginess and character to your hair style. If you do have shorter hair, make an effort to define those curls by using products such as a mousse. Sometimes, even the application of a styling product can add more life into your existing style and it won't take any extra time out of your morning routine.
For longer curly hairstyles there tend to be a wider variety of looks that you can achieve and the extra length helps to weigh down the hair if you wanted a tamer style. Your options are quite endless, so a good way to narrow those down to the perfect style for you is by understanding what image you wish to portray. This can really be quite a fun way of choosing a hair style. Do you want to look romantic or flirty? Then choose loose curls that naturally frame the face and accentuate your best features. The look should seem as though you haven't put a lot of effort into it and the good news is, it doesn't require a lot of effort - just make sure to use a little serum to prevent frizz.
If you wanted something more unique, you could try mixing up the tightness of individual curls. Have a mane of loose curls to begin with and then add some corkscrew curls into the frame. This will definitely turn heads and give the impression that you are a confident woman who is not afraid of experimenting with her hair.
If you are unsure where to start looking - your best bet is flicking through hair magazines or better still use the web for resources. The internet is so huge and you will always find something relevant to what you are searching for. There will be a lot of hairstyling sites out there - but amongst them will be sites specifically for curly haired women.
As a last resort, or even on first instance - your hair stylist can help. If you have naturally curly hair, it is really worth finding a hairstylist who also has naturally curly hair - those are the ones who will understand your needs the best.
