Curly hair tends to get frizzy.
Curly hair can be a problem for all types of women. While frizz occurs more often in people with curly or textured hair, women with dry, straight hair can also be subject to this frustration. Fortunately, there are two basic options when it comes to hairstyles for curly hair. You can tame frizz with styling products and tools to straighten it or curl it into curls. Another hairstyle option for curly hair involves hiding the frizz with buns and braids.
People with curly hair should avoid hair dryers.
Taming your hair is one of the most challenging aspects of styling frizz. Lack of time, humidity, and the need for expensive hair products can work against people trying to control their flyaways. Anyone intending to go in this direction should also condition their hair regularly and avoid hairdryers. Applying a leave-in conditioner to your hair right after shampooing and letting it air dry normally prevents frizz from forming.
Smoothing serums can help people with frizzy hair achieve a shiny, smooth look.
Smoothing serums are often the key to creating hairstyles for curly hair. Applying a portion of this product to your hair before applying a flat iron or curling iron will lubricate your hair and make it less stubborn. From that point on, all a lady usually needs is patience. Hair should be held on a flat iron or curler in 1-inch (about 2 cm) sections for several seconds each. Women with long thick hair may require an hour or two for this type of hairstyle.

Hide curly hair is the second, and possibly one of the fastest, hairstyles for curly hair. This usually involves wrapping your hair into buns or smoothing it into neat braids. Elegantly tousled buns work well for curly hair because a few strands of hair can escape without ruining the entire look. You can gently smooth your frizzy hair into a bun placed just below one ear, at the back of your neck or just below the top of your head. Two buns, placed on either side of the neck, are charming and fun for more casual workspaces, coffee dates and nights out with friends.
Braids can also hide frizz, though they may require a small amount of mousse or light styling serum to keep them neat all day. Fun double braids can easily become one in a list of stylish hairstyles for curly hair, with the help of a side part and a few bobby pins. To do this, simply tie the two braids into a knot at the back of your head and secure the ends out of sight. A side braid, starting above one ear and wrapping around the back of the head, also looks professional, but can easily translate into a casual or evening setting.
