shakira curls

It's not every day we get to see our favorite celebrities rock their natural curls. The actresses and singers who usually sport sleek, straight blowouts sometimes show off their naturally curly hair, and they look absolutely stunning. While it is their choice to style their hair however they like, it almost makes us wish they would rock this look more often both on-screen and in real life. Either way, it is always great to see a famous lady confidently wearing her beautiful head of natural hair.

There has been such a huge wave of women who are accepting their curls and not falling for the pressures of always having to wear their hair sleek and straight. While there's nothing wrong with straight hair, embracing our natural beauty comes with the most liberating feeling.
