50s Style Barrel (Pin) Curls

Half Up and Half Down Big Curls

Half up hairdo’s are a great way to show off curls but still keep them moderately tame. A half up hairstyle can be formal for a wedding or prom but it can also be casual enough for the work place or a family gathering. The look works well with gorgeous gowns or a pants suit.

Center Part Barrel Curls

The center part is back on trend and oval faces look amazing with this part. If you have a long bob haircut or longer then get a 2 inch barrel curling iron or some hot rollers and curl your gorgeous locks for a hairstyle that can be worn at the office, at home, or a night on the town.

Curly Hairstyle with Headband

Hair accessories are the simplest way to spice up a simple look. Curls are already glamorous so you don’t have to overdo it with overpowering clips or hair pieces but a simple headband is a great way to keep the curls off your face and pull together your outfit with your hairstyle.
