All face shapes would be great candidates for this hairstyle although if you have a larger forehead, this style would accentuate that. Tight natural coils of hair are shown but any curl type can wear this half up hairstyle.

Tip:

If you have coarse curly hair you may want to use a thicker conditioner in the shower, too. Coarse hair needs lots of moisture to stay looking healthy and bouncy.

Side Bangs

If you do opt for side bangs with curly hair you may want to flat iron them every other day or so like shown on the model in the picture. The balance of curly hair and smooth bangs is nice and creates a fun and fresh style.

Side Bangs - Medium Curly Brunette Hairstyle

How To Style:

1. Part hair to the side out of the shower and style and dry your curls as you usually would for your hair type.

2. Section out thin pieces of the bang to flat iron until the entire area of bangs is smoothed and to the side.

Recommended Products:

Put a small amount of Moroccan Oil’s famous treatment on your hands, rub them together and gently pull the product through your hair when it’s dry, but before flat ironing. This will add incredible shine and also provide protection from heat.

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

Oval faces would look great with the side bangs in this hairstyle. All types of curls can try this look out.

Tip:

Flick the ends of the flat iron to the side when you reach the tips of the hair to create a softer shape when straightening.

Bouncy Bangs

Who said you can’t have bangs if you have curly hair? Keep the bangs long (especially if cut wet because curls spring up shorter when dry!) for soft face framing bangs. Bangs are great for girls who have a ton of hair and have a hard time keeping it out of their face. Cutting bangs helps to open up and frame the face.

How To Style:

1. Use a wide toothed comb out of the shower to detangle and comb bangs forward.

2. Apply your favorite curling cream, mousse or foam with your hands from roots to tips and scrunch up to enhance the curls.

3. Let your hair dry and try not to touch even when dry to minimize frizz.

Recommended Products:

Try the Curl Defining Mousse from Moroccan Oil. It is a unique and light, non-greasy formula that will make your curls shine.

Best Face Shape & Hair Type:

This look is great for all face shapes, especially larger foreheads that may need to be covered a bit. Natural curls that have a uniform wave throughout the whole head are great for this hairstyle.

Tip:

If you’re nervous about committing to bangs, know that the curls can be stretched or twisted back out of the way if necessary.

Classic Pigtails

You can’t go wrong with pigtails and this hairstyle couldn’t be more low maintenance. Sometimes young girls with curly hair just need their hair up and out of their way! Braided pigtails are the perfect solution for days such as those.

Pigtails are amazing because they really do work on any hair type, face, shape or texture. Have you ever seen a little girl NOT look cute with pigtails?

Leave about two inches of tail after the elastic band to show off just the right amount of curly texture. Add ribbons for an even cuter look!
