Although curls can be a force to be reckoned with when styling, in this post I explain how to get curls to behave beautifully! Here are four red-carpet hairstyles that are perfect for showcasing curly hair at your next pageant:
Taylor Swift demonstrates how beautiful natural curls can be. She left the ends curled and styled her bangs in a sideswept style. To enhance natural curls, add a curl-enhancing cream to damp hair and blow dry with a diffuser nozzle. You can further enhance curls by using a curling iron on one or two inch sections. Give bangs the sweeping movement by pulling a flatiron in a fluid motion and twisting upwards at the ends. Set the look with light hairspray.
The Effortless Look
Miley Cyrus wears a curly ponytail that drapes down her back. Her bangs are lightly curled around her face, and the curls are gathered into a tight, low ponytail. Wrap a piece of hair around the ponytail to add a little sophistication. Keep curls smooth by using a moisturizing cream on dry hair.
The Romantic Look
Emmy Rossum models a romantic curly bun. Spray curls with a texturizing spray. Gather the hair back into a low ponytail. Create a bun by loosely wrapping the ponytail around the ponytail elastic, pinning with bobby pins to secure. Set the look with hairspray.
The Glamorous Look
Kourtney Kardashian has a stunning Old Hollywood-inspired look with her curls. To enhance natural curls, add a curl-enhancing cream to damp hair and blow dry with a diffuser nozzle. Create defined curls with a curling iron. Straighten the top few inches of hair and set by applying a mix of gel and styling cream with a toothbrush to hold the look without making the hair too stiff. Set the style with hairspray
