How to Style Curly Hair in 20 Minutes or Less
Curly hair can often be difficult to style due to its thick, unruly nature. If you're short on time, however, there are a few quick styles you can try to have your hair looking great in 20 minutes or less. The key is to stick to simple, classic styles, spend less time drying your hair, and use only a few styling products. You may find that these simple styles are perfect for you when you're in a rush.
Trying Simple Styles
Do a ponytail for a classic look.A pony tail is a simple, classic hairstyle that works on nearly all hair types, curly hair included. To do a classic ponytail, gather your hair in back. You can gather all your hair, or just clip back part of it. A pony tail can fall high or low, depending on your preference. Once your hair is gathered, put the bungee in place or wrap an elastic band around your hair.
- You can even create a slightly different look by parting your hair in the middle or to the side when creating a low ponytail.
- Consider going for a hair bungee over a conventional elastic bands. Curly hair may be too thick for the usual rubber bands. You can pick up hair bungees at most beauty stores and salons. They're elastic bands with 2 clips on the end. You would pull the band around your hair until it forms a ponytail, and then clip the bands together.
- If your hair feels too tight, try gently loosening the bungee or band. If you can't loosen it adequately, take your hair out of the ponytail and try again. A pony tail should take less than 5 minutes.
Try a high bun for an elegant vibe.A high bun is a quick, classic style that can be particularly flattering for curly hair. As with the classic ponytail, there are some special considerations to take when putting your hair in a high bun. To start, use your fingers to gather your hair in a high ponytail. Aim to have your bun resting towards the top of the back of your head. Then, use an elastic band or hair bungee to secure your hair.
- From here, you can pad your hair gently with your hands or a soft-bristled brush, creating a bun shape. You can use a large scrunchie or a hair donut, which is a large and thick elastic band, to secure the bun shape you've created. Simply tuck the ends of your hair under the scrunchie or donut.
- If your hair still feels a bit loose, you can place some bobby pins around the base of your bun to secure it. You can also spritz your hair with a light bit of hairspray to keep the style in place.
- Alternatively, you could do a messy bun or make a top knot bun.
Do a simple braid to keep your hair out of your face.If you have curly hair, you can try a simple braid. If your hair is thin enough, simply separate it into 3 sections and braid it to the side or running down your back. If your hair is particularly thick, however, braiding the whole thing may be difficult. In this case, there are other options.
- You can try braiding 1 or 2 small strands of hair. Then, you can wrap these strands around your existing hair and secure with bobby pins, creating a ponytail with your braid.
- Some women like to separate their hair into 3 sections. Then, they braid each of these sections. When complete, they braid the braided parts together. This creates a fun, somewhat eccentric style. The only downside is, if you're not used to braiding, it may take slightly longer than 20 minutes.
Using Products to Style Your Hair
Apply a curl-defining cream after washing your hair.Sometimes, the easiest way to style curly hair is to let it sit naturally. A curl-defining cream can leave your locks looking beautiful and natural.
- Wash and condition your hair as you normally would. Allow it to dry so it's damp, but not dripping wet. Comb through it using a wide-tooth comb. Then, apply some curl-defining cream to your hands and run them through your tresses.
Part your hair after applying mousse and hair serum.Another low-key, quick look would involve simply parting your hair. As curly hair can be unruly, it's a good idea to try to add hair serum and mousse to make your hair easier to work with prior to parting.
- Wash and condition your hair as you normally would and then let it air-dry until it's damp. From there, apply a small amount of your choice of mousse. You should also add a smoothing serum.
- Usually, you do not need to use a lot of either product. In fact, using more than a small dab could leave your hair looking greasy. However, if you're unsure what a good amount for your hair is, you may be able to find some information on the instructions label on your style products.
- Part your hair as you wish. You can do a side part or part it down the middle, depending on what you feel is flattering for your facial features. If you have time to dry your hair, do so with a hair dryer or diffuser.
- Set your style with a light spritzing of hairspray or finishing spray.
Create big curls and set them with hairspray.On some days, you may want to show off your natural curly hair. To do so, you can tease your curls with a backcombing or regular brush and then use hairspray to set the style for the day.
- It's a good idea to wash your hair with volumizing shampoo and conditioner before attempting this look.
- Starting at the roots, backcomb your hair with a rat-tail comb. To backcomb, use 1 fluid motion to push your hair back towards your scalp. Work through each section of your hair, backcombing until your curls are as big as you like. It's a good idea to work in 2 to 3 inch (5.1 to 7.6 cm) sections at a time.
- You can simply backcomb near your scalp, but if you want a bigger look try backcombing near the ends of your hair. Once you're satisfied, spritz your hair with conditioner to set the style.
- Keep in mind this style works best for shorter hair. Longer hair may not respond well to big curls.
Use Velcro rollers and bobby pins for a low-hanging ponytail.A low hanging ponytail is a slightly more styled version of a classic look that you can easily pull off in less than 20 minutes. You'll need some Velcro rollers, bobby pins, a brush, and an elastic band.
- Separate your hair into 2 to 3 inch (5.1 to 7.6 cm) sections. Secure these sections with Velcro rollers, rolling the hair from the bottom of the lock to the root. If your hair is wet, allow your hair to air dry with the rollers in place.
- Once your hair is dry, remove your hair from the rollers and brush out your hair. From here, lift your hair up at the roots. Use a brush or comb to lightly tease the end strands of your hair, volumizing it slightly and calling attention to your natural waves.
- Pull your hair into a low, loose ponytail. The hair should hang slightly taut with this look. Leave a small 2 inch (5.1 cm) section out of the ponytail. Secure your ponytail with an elastic band.
- Take the 2 inch (5.1 cm) section of hair. Wrap it around the ponytail, concealing the elastic band. Secure with a bobby pin.
Use a curling iron and bobby pins for a half updo.A half updo can work great for curly hair. As curly hair is often thick, it can be hard to pull all of it into an updo without straightening, which can take a long time. Instead, try to do a partial updo. All you need is a curling iron and some bobby pins.
- Tease your hair with a fine-toothed comb if you want to add volume. Then, pull the front sections of your hair back. Twist the hair slightly and secure with a bobby pins. If your hair is too unruly for bobby pins, try using a small elastic band.
- Allow excess curls to hang down. Try using a curling iron to make your natural curls more apparent, teasing them slightly. This will allow your natural curls to shine, while giving you a fun and casual look.
Roll your hair in a bandana or scarf for a casual look.A bandana or a scarf is a great accessory for curly hair that can be put in place quickly. After washing and brushing your hair as you normally would, take a scarf or bandana. Wrap the scarf or bandana around your head, so it circles around your forehead and the back of your head. Twist a small strand of hair. Then, loop this strand around the bandana and scarf.
QuestionWhat do I do with frizzy hair?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerUse a T-shirt to dry your hair instead of a towel, to reduce some of the frizz. You can use some hair products such as leave-in conditioner after you wash it, but before styling.Thanks!
- If your hair is thick, pull the top half up and put mousse on the bottom then let down the top and put stuff on that half.
- Invest in proper hair products. Unlike straight hair which can handle abuse by cheaper hair products, curly hair is sensitive and must be treated with care and quality products.
- If you want to use headbands or elastics in your curly hair, make sure they are wide and thick. Curly hair may cause weaker elastic bands to snap.
