Amazing Curly Hairstyles
Wearing your curly hair with pride
Curly hair has gotten a bad rap as a statement of quirky individuality or a sign of laziness but the look’s fresh appeal lies in its confidence. In order to wear naturally curly hair with ease, you have to love it and be confident with your luscious, often crazy, locks. Finding the right hair salon to help with the upkeep is a step in the right direction. Legends Salon of Hillsborough is that right salon!
Curly hair is messy, loud and has a lot to say. Back in the day, curly hair was the rage. Girls with straight hair were getting perms and those with naturally curly hair were wearing it au naturale. What happened along the way? Hair straightening started to become popular and all of a sudden the trend was straight, no-frizzy hair that was sleek and shiny. In the era of “glam”, it takes a village to primp and prep and so the results are smooth, sleek, polished and predictable.
Natural curls are slowly making their way back into fashion. It’s a feminist statement that evokes the statement that says, “it’s my hair and it cannot be contained.” Natural curls bring up pleasant associations of being on vacation without products or tools, making it unfussy and feminine.
Having naturally curly hair does not mean that they don’t require careful maintenance. Curls come in all shapes and sizes and require different amounts of maintenance and styling. Some days one half of your head will look perfect, the other too wild. You will attempt to put it up only to realize that the heat and humidity have taken over and there is suddenly too much hair for your hair accessories. Once you take a deep breath and a shower, you can have a fresh start. And when you get it right you don’t have to worry about too much. These aren’t mermaid waves you have, they are the curls of a siren.
Since curls are coming back into style (and for those of you who have, for years, tried to calm your curls down) and they should not be ignored. Many women have curly hair after losing their once straight hair to chemotherapy and are clueless what to do with it. We say, embrace it! You are lucky to have experienced two different hair textures in your life. Where that wild and crazy hair and be proud of it. Just know how to tame it enough so it doesn’t drive you bananas.
At Legends Salon of Hillsborough, we want to help you to embrace your curly hair and love every little spiral on your head. It may mean using styling products that help control the frizz or getting a deep conditioning to keep the curls extremely tight. You may need a cut that only someone experienced with curly hair can help you with. Curly hair is a style all to its own and we want to help you bring out the best it can be.
