Curly hair styles that can take you from day to night
All curly-haired chicas know the blessings and challenges of rulitos. Curly hair is eye-catching and feminine. On the down side, of course, there are humid days and dry ends. Curly hair can be a little tricky when taking it from a "day" look to a "night" look. But don't despair. Here are a few quick ideas for how to make the transition smooth.
First, as all curly-haired women know, moisture is the key to rocking great curls. This is also the case when livening up your look for night time. Keep a refreshing curly-hair spray in your desk. A few quick spritzes work some life right back into your curls.
Second, the great thing that curly hair has is body… so work with it! Get a sparkly claw clip and pull hair your hair loosely up by your crown. Instant glamour. Make it loose and full.
Another hot look that a lot of celebrities are rocking is the loose side braid. Curly hair is a natural for it, giving it a hip vibe. Simply spray your hair with a curl-enhancer, divide your hair into three pieces, start the braid near the back of your head and bring it forward with each loop. Leave a long, undone piece at the end and add dazzle accordingly. Side pony tails also look glam with curly hair. You have a 10-minute evening look that you can get done in the office before heading out on the town.
For a sweet, romantic curly-hair evening look, go for the loose bun at the nape of neck, accomplished with a quick twist and some small claw clips hidden under your curls. Be sure to leave a few loose curls out to frame your face. My mom used to call these "busca novios" (boyfriend finders) because she said men couldn't resist the look.
Whether it's a soft side ponytail or a romantic bun, with the right product and a few minutes of creativity, curly hair can be taken from day to night. It's up to you to supply the fun.
