Short-length curly hairstyles

We kick off the list of best curly hairstyles for short hair types. From pixie ringlets to curly mohawks, and everything in between, all you need is a couple of centimetres of hair to ensure that you get the desired look. Maintenance for short curls doesn’t have to be a hassle either. You can either sleep in with soft curls at night or use some special products for curly hair to get the look you desire. Other options you have available include those that are suitable for boy cuts and even for bobs that reach around the ears in length. Either way, curls add natural volume to your hair and when treated well, can last a long time with little maintenance and upkeep. 

Medium-length curly hairstyles

Looking to cut your hair to shoulder length for a curly haircut? Why not try the asymmetrical lob? It’s great for improving the volume of your hair and the asymmetrical look can look quite funky and different. There’s also the long bob you can opt for. Alternatively, if you want to frame your face better, you can always go for baby bangs or even full bangs. Whereas baby bangs are quite short and you’ll need much smaller curlers to achieve the look, full bangs are longer, can use larger curls to achieve the look and they frame the eyes very well. Layers are another option to consider as is the option to go for a side-swept look. The latter means using a side parting to add more volume to one part of your head. 

Long-length curly hairstyles

Long hair offers possibly the most options for curly hair in terms of different styles you can follow. This variety means you can play around with lots of ideas and test out what works for your hair colour, face shape, hair texture and more. Here, the length of your hair offers you variety and you should take advantage of it. The first option you have is to choose the type of curls you want. For example, you can go for smaller, springier curls that are very well defined. Then there’s the ability to go for medium sized curls, waves, spirals and all other sorts. You can have curls with bangs or no bangs. Your curls can be layered or absolutely even. In either of these cases, you’ll get volume and look sophisticated yet playful. Your mane will speak for itself.
