Owner / Stylist / Makeup Artist @ Jillian & Company in Southington, CT

How would you describe this?

This curly ponytail is a really cute and fun hairstyle for long curly hair! You definitely need to have long hair or some type of extensions to achieve long curly hair styles.

You will need a curling iron or wand, some hairspray, and a volumizing powder. With those three things, you will be able to have a thick curled pony for yourself too!

What’s your best advice?

Keep in mind that less is more. Sometimes the less you fuss with a pony like this, the better it looks.

It’s ok if it has an undone look to it with strands hanging. It is a boho vibe and doesn’t need to be perfect. This pony is suitable for any face shape or hair color. Just remember you will need volumizing products and a teasing comb!

How would you describe this?

This is the “lived-in definition” for long curls. It’s a low maintenance curly style for long hair. It doesn’t complicate their hair routine with tons of products.

Not every curl is the same. That’s what makes long, naturally curly hair one-of-a-kind!

What’s your best advice?

When it comes to this curly style, less is more. The curls will curl, all they really need is water. Water is key to achieve frizz-free, shiny and defined curls. While the hair is soaking wet, apply a light hold gel. Then scrunch out excess water with a cotton t-shirt and diffuse hair until 80% dry.

This curly hairstyle is perfect for women who need a hair routine that isn’t complicated and want their natural texture to exist effortlessly. Curly girls should wear the hair, the hair doesn’t wear you.

Q&A with style creator, Daisy Henson
Certified DevaCurl Stylist @ Studio V Salon in San Diego, CA


How would you describe this?

These are long California beachy curls. It’s also known as a waterfall cut.

The best thing about this long curly cut is that it’s sexy, tousled, and carefree with lots of volume. The short layers on long hair allow the hair to dry faster and give a lot of volume without sacrificing the length that many curly girls crave.

What’s your best advice?

Long curly hair suits wavy or curly girls with shoulder-length hair who want movement and shape.

Use DevaCurl products. Start with BuildUp Buster, which is a deep cleanser, to remove buildup from past products. This will give wavy curls life and bounce. A buildup remover is important to achieve maximum volume. Certain products, as well as the environment, can weigh the hair down and make it impossible to get volume.

Next, use One Condition Original and leave a bit in for moisture. Then use Styling Cream and Light Defining Gel to define your wavy curls. Towel dry with a microfiber towel to reduce frizz and then diffuse.

Q&A with style creator, Bella Frada
Stylist @ Chatters Hyland Centre in London, ON Canada


How would you describe this?

This curly long hairstyle begins with a conversation between you and your stylist. This conversation is what leads to educating you on how to take your natural waves or curls and turning them into something amazing and frizz-free. You’ll fall in love with your curls again!

What’s your best advice?

To recreate these curls use products from DevaCurl. Deva Curl is 100% sulfate, silicone, and paraben-free. Say goodbye to your normal shampoo and conditioner. Most of these products will contain harsh chemicals that tend to dry out curls, making them to look frizzy.

The DevaCurl line has specific needs for all curl types. Every product consists of a special blend specifically formulated to address the needs of hydration, strength, nourishment and shine. When a stylist sees a curly girl for the first time, most of that time is spent teaching them how to properly use the products at home. When they start using the right products, they can instantly see the results even.

About 65% of the population has long curly tresses. It’s all in how we are willing to embrace our natural curl and its uniqueness.

All curl patterns are different, even on the same woman. A curly girl haircut should always be done dry, not wet. When we cut dry we can visually see the curls and create a curly hairstyle that is customizable for each woman’s curl pattern.

Q&A with style creator, Dianne Nola
Certified DevaCurl Stylist @ Nola Studio in San Francisco, CA


How would you describe this?

This long curly cut is called “The High Priestess” or “The Lioness.” Essentially, it is a long curly layered haircut on extremely thick hair. It commands attention.

What’s your best advice?

Use Innersense Organic Beauty products made locally in Walnut Creek, California. Their line includes the Hydrating Cream Hairbath, Hydrating Cream Conditioner, Inner Peace Whipped Cream Texturizer and I Create Hold Gel.

An oval face would wear this curl pattern best because it emphasizes length and fullness. With any other face shape, it might look too extreme.

Q&A with style creator, Rosie Jablonsky
Founder @ Curl Power Salon in Minneapolis, MN


How would you describe this?

This gently layered waterfall long curly hair cut was achieved by sculpting the curls to cascade away from the face with a soft, even shape.

What’s your best advice?

Try a combination of DevaCurl products and UpNorthNaturals for this style. If your hair needs a lot of moisture, use the DevaCurl Decadence NoPoo and One Condition as a cleanser and conditioner. Add DevaCurl Heaven In Hair Deep Conditioner for extra hydration and thickness to the formula.

Rinse the conditioner over halfway out after a thorough finger detangling and curl clustering session. The leave-in stylers to try are Up North Naturals’ Hair Milk followed by 8 Oil Defining Gelly. Once dry, spritz on DevaCurl Set It Free for moisture lock and shine on your long curls.

This shape translates beautifully to wavy hair, medium curly, and the looser end of the super curly spectrum. Gentle shaping that works to define your texture and eliminate bulk is flattering on longer hair.

Shaggy Curly Long Layers

Q&A with style creator, DaShell Isaac
Advanced Deva Stylist & Educator @ House: Textured in Las Vegas, NV


How would you describe this?

Shaggy curly long hair should be lived-in. It’s beachy and tousled with curly bangs.

Although it looks effortless, these curls needed a bit of encouragement to form fully.

What’s your best advice?

Find a DevaCurl stylist if you can. Or ask your stylist to use the DevaCurl LowPoo Delight and Delight One Conditioner for your wavy hair. Then style your curls with DevaCurl Wave Maker which is an airy, whip-like cream for definition, as well as the Frizz Free Volume Foam for volume. Apply each product section by section, scrunching it in as you go along.

This particular curly haircut for long hair is for a longer face shape because of the fringe. Wearing fringe across the forehead helps shorten a longer face. Round faces typically don’t look as pleasing with longer hair, and this face shape is where the sides are significantly longer than the width of the face. Opposite of that, omit the fringe if you have a small or square-shaped face. One’s facial features would get lost in all of the long hair and bangs.
