Curly Hairstyles 2023: 25+ Styles For Short, Medium, And Long Hair

Finding great short hairstyles for curly hair can be difficult. In fact, many people with curly hair may turn to a flat iron to straighten their hair before cutting it. You’ll save time (and heat damage!) if you instead embrace your curls and let them do their thing with a little encouragement from some amazing products.

The problem is that when you have curly hair, you feel quite limited to try different hairstyles. But that couldn’t be further from the truth. While there are secrets to styling curly hair, there are also hair inspo. Some of our favorite A-listers with curly and natural hair have opted for the shorter look. Not only will this help you see your curls in a different light, but you’ll know what to look for the next time you’re at the salon. We’ve rounded up our favorite hair care and styling tips from the pros: Melanie Bolton, Trey Gillan and Anastasia Stiliano.

Victoria’s Secret Angel Alana Arrington looks rock star ready in her Chagadelic top. This hairstyle is especially attractive to people with natural texture and straight hair. “Extensions are great for removing excess bulk and allowing a haircut to last longer than usual,” says Gillen. He recommends using SachajuandaDry Shampoo Foam ($39) to twist and curl fluffy layers for a flirty effect.

Romance, femininity, beauty – Solange’s bob has it all. Increases volume and texture to create a naturally curly vibe around you. The effect is supernatural. To get the look with naturally bouncy or dry curls, Bolton recommends a dry texture spray. “Spray at the roots for lift exactly where you want it, and part the curls with your fingers to improve texture when pulled back.” Finish with a general spritz of dry texture spray and/or medium hold hairspray.”

Singer-songwriter Jhene Aiko is a prime example of how layers can work wonders on textured hair. Gillan comments: “Shaping your hair square is a powerful move and a super trend.” Square layers (known as box layers) are perfect for curly or wavy hair because they prevent the hair from looking too heavy towards the ends while adding strength. To achieve Aiko’s goal, Gillan suggests applying Sachajuan’s Curl Treatment ($34) in the shower to control and soften hair, followed by a generous dose of styling serum to define and hydrate curls.

If you can’t decide whether you want to keep your hair down or braid it, why not do both? Nicole Richie’s half-up, half-down lob is a low-maintenance look that embraces the hair’s natural texture. Bolton says the key to this style is volume at the roots and moisture at the length. She recommends using Flow LimitlessLift Volumizing Cleanse ($25) on the scalp, followed by a 30-second treatment ($25) applied from mid-shaft to ends and finished with a texturizing spray.

A pixie cut and fringes for curly hair may sound like a terrible cocktail, and on paper it sounds like a curly mess, but in reality it looks like this. As for why it works, Bolton says, “Her long bangs fill her face with volume, while the pixie’s highly textured layers create movement and texture.” Since hydration is curls’ best friend, she suggests incorporating a deep conditioner into your regular hair care regimen.

If anyone can pull off this bold yet understated look, it’s the fabulous Jodie-Turner Smith. “This style is perfect for anyone with tight coils,” says Stilianu. To ensure proper maintenance, she emphasizes the importance of keeping the edges well as they are like a contour. She recommends Pattern Beauty Edge Control ($12) to keep edges under control.

Short Haircuts For Curly Hair To Inspire Your Next Look

The beauty of curly hair is that it holds much better than straight hair because of its texture. This look worn by Scarlett Johansson is a great example. If your hair is longer than your chin, create a similar style by creating a chignon or French braid at the back and then pulling your hair forward. Finish with texturizing spray. Bolton explains that this hairstyle looks even better on second-day hair.

While Beyoncé’s soft curls are a bit straighter than “traditional” curls, Bolton explains, “It’s a great option for people who want to soften their curls but still want a bigger shape.” Apply a softening product to damp hair and blow dry, drying the roots completely. Allow the rest of the hair to air dry while still slightly damp to create natural waves and volume. She notes that the edges will appear naturally.

Not ready to commit to a shorter bob? A loose wavy lob, as seen here on Michelle Yeoh, is as cute as it is practical. Not only do long bangs look good on everyone, but they’re also versatile and low maintenance. “Use your curling iron or flat iron to create waves and knock down big waves of thick hair. An intensive hair oil will add shine and moisture to keep this style healthy and beautiful,” says Gillan.

Yara Shahidi is rocking her voluminous lob and, IMHO, she’s never looked better. Gillan says, “Round extensions on curly hair are great for a carefree curly look. Adding a lot of personality to wavy and curly hair, this is an easy hairstyle to evenly distribute the weight of thick hair.” He suggests adding a veil for good measure, or rather, framing the face. And don’t forget to shampoo and condition to keep textured hair looking its best.

Of The Chicest Short Haircuts That Embrace Curls And Waves

Since curly hair holds the style better, you can totally mix it up by sweeping your short curly hair to the side like Marion Cotillard. Bolton says a dramatic side part is a quick and easy way to change up your everyday look, not to mention it “can also support the use of cute hair accessories if that’s one of your goals.”

Selena Gomez shows how curls can add fun and flirty to a cut that can otherwise be more serious when worn flat. Bolton points out that this versatile and easy-to-style cowl is a great option if you’re growing out your short hair.

Actress Viola Davis exudes confidence with her full, layered head. Stilianu says this cut is ideal for 3C/4A curls and those with really thick hair. “My favorite product line for this hair type is BiPattern Beauty. They have a full line of shampoos, conditioners, curl creams, and age control. I recommend using a curl cream and gel to really make your curls pop.”

To prevent your cut from taking on a round or tight shape, incorporate some random and messy layers into your hair.

Ethiopian-Irish actress Ruth Negga is giving us some serious Betty Boop vibes with her darling head of curls. To ensure curly hair stays hydrated, Bolton says to include a weekly deep conditioning and styling treatment with a mix of medium-hold products and shine serums. She adds, “Use your fingers to add a rough texture for the desired effect.”

Jasmine Sanders exudes old Hollywood glamor with this retro wavy hairstyle. To create definition and shine without frizz, Bolton suggests blow-drying with a smoothing cream or lotion. We are fans of Olaplaque No. 6 Bond Smoother Styling Reparative Cream ($28), in case you were wondering.

We can’t get enough of Solange. Here she shows off her natural, voluminous hair once again, only this time with a layered, textured finish. “If your hair is tight, curly and you want to change it a bit, I recommend this style,” says Stiliano. She suggests spritzing your roots with water to loosen them up a bit before applying DewCurl Wave Maker ($28). Once dry, spray with Got2b Glued Blasting Frizz Hairspray ($7). To finish, sweep the ends with a soft-bristle brush and Afro comb. “the bigger the better!” she insists.

Lupita Nyong’o’s production isn’t easy for everyone, but it looks amazing on her. Kudos to her stylist, Vernon Francois, who is the ultimate natural hair expert and will do whatever it takes to keep her hair moisturized (read: flat iron steam). Bolton comments: “This look is the perfect combination of strength and softness, where the curls are allowed to remain clearly defined and textured.”
