5 Curly Celebrity Hairstyles We Love

February 13, 2014

Curls might get the girls, but girls with curly hair are simply gorgeous! Curls are glamorous, sexy and fun. If you’ve got naturally wavy or curly hair, celebrate it! Here are just a few of our favourite curly celebrity hairstyles to inspire you plus tips on how to recreate these hairstyles for yourself.

Jessica Alba’s bombshell curls
Jessica Alba could style her hair anyway and still look amazing, but by enhancing her naturally wavy hair into full-blown curls, she looks even more vivacious. There is just something about long, flowing curls like this that is always going to turn heads. To get Jessica’s curls, work through hair with a volumising mousse. Blow dry hair with a round brush. Then use hot rollers throughout hair. Large rollers work best for this look. Take rollers out when cool. Very gently comb through hair and tousle with your fingers. Spray hair with a light- hold hairspray.


Eva Mendes side-swept curls
Aren’t Eva Mendes’s side-swept curls just the definition of sexy? Her soft curls frame her face highlighting her gorgeous skin. In order to achieve this look, start with damp hair. Create a deep side part, and work a little volumising mousse through your hair. Then blow dry using a barrel brush. Spray your dry hair with a heat protector. Curl one inch sections of your hair with a large barrel curling iron. Comb through hair very gently. Keep flyaway hairs at bay with a frizz-reducing, shine-enhancing finishing cream or serum. Tuck one side behind your ear and wear your biggest earrings for a glam evening look.


Emmy Rossum’s curly ponytail
Emmy Rossum’s natural curls are lovely twisted into a side ponytail. To recreate the look. Apply a texturising mousse to defrizz and set your natural curls. Let your hair air dray. Spray with a heat protector. Braid a small section of your hair from the very top of your crown to the bottom of your ear. Use a small barrel curling iron to curl the rest of your hair, curling small sections at a time. Comb through hair gently. Pull your hair into a low side ponytail just below your ear where the braid ends, and secure the braid into the pony tail. Fasten with an elastic band.

Leighton Meester’s curly updo
Leighton Meester’s natural waves create a fun curly updo highlighting her gorgeous eyes. For this style, work a maximum hold styling mousse through your hair. Spray with a heat protector and blow dry hair as usual. Then curl one-inch sections of your hair with a large barrel curling iron. When finished, comb through hair very gently. Pull hair back into a high ponytail, wrapping the hair into a loose bun and securing with bobby pins. Pull out a few tendrils in front to frame your face.


Jennifer Lopez Half-Updo
Jennifer Lopez’s fabulous half-up curly hairstyle is such a pretty look that can take you from the office to the club. Work a curl-protecting cream through your hair. Part the hair in the middle, and take each sections either side and pin them into half ponytails and secure with bobby pins.
