How To Style Your Naturally Curly Hair

image
Curls are unpredictable — and that's the beauty of them. They're not perfect, yet they're perfect just the way they are. When it comes to styling your curls, the sky is the limit — whether you prefer to elongate and define each curl or you're cool with embracing some natural frizz and just want next-level volume. No matter what look you're going for, all curly girls should focus on hydration. "While it varies from person to person, the general rule of thumb is the tighter your coil, the dryer your hair is," says celebrity hairstylist Tym Wallace. Your natural oils have a longer distance to travel down from your scalp to your ends. Seems simple, right? So why are there so many...

The Coolest Summer Haircuts For Curly Hair

image
For the naturally curly set, summer is the time to shine. We get a break from damaging hot tools, warm weather makes wash-and-go styles so easy to air-dry, and our mascot product, coconut oil, doesn't take, like, a year to liquify! Score. We're not totally in the clear, however. The shrinkage struggle is still very real (is it just me or is it actually worse in the summer?) and humidity brings more frizz, which we know not everyone loves. Nevertheless, if there's any season to try out the bouncy, wavy, or coily styles you've been eyeing, now's the chance. Especially when it comes to new, on-trend haircuts. You already know that short crops are having a major moment, from buzzcuts and pixies all the way to long bobs, so we've rounded up a ton of on-trend...

Gigi Hadid Dyes Her Hair Back to Blonde

00-lede-peach-eye
This just in: Gigi Hadid has returned to her supremely sunny roots. Yesterday, the formerly bronde supermodel stepped out in Manhattan to debut a set of freshly-lightened lengths, her baby blonde parted at center and cut in soft, face-framing layers calling to mind the '70s-inspired manes that have been turning heads as of late. And while her new style certainly did its part to brighten, Hadid furthered the feel with a set of sunglasses that mirrored even brighter days. But the radiant sensibilities didn't stop there. This morning found Hadid combing her bombshell blonde into a sleek, deeply-parted knot, ensuring the spotlight found her face. And for good reason: rather than lightly tinted shades, Hadid adorned her blue eyes with a warming wash of shadow reminiscent...

Embracing wet hair The whole doing-your-hair-in-the-wilderness and embracing-your-natural-texture thing? So cool for festival season, says Alex. "A blowout is so not worth it in the summer—I say, play up whatever natural texture you've got!" Good thing, since primping in a tent means finding a cute wet hairstyle that dries to perfection. But...
