If you have naturally curly or wavy hair, we have five hairstyles to help inspire your next look. Whether you want to grow your hair out or just style it a little differently, you have plenty of options!

Side part

This style is ideal for anyone whose job requires a formal dress code, or who likes their hairstyles polished and under control. It's good at showing off natural movement, but keeps the hair looking tidy.


Whether you have tight coils or voluminous waves, a curly pomp with the longer hair concentrated on top of your head is a versatile option. It''s understated enough for work, but edgy enough to keep your off duty look interesting.

Styling tip - Use a small amount of pomade to hold your hair in place. To add height, lift the hair with a comb and fix it in place with your blowdryer.

Mid-length messy waves

For those of you who take a #wokeuplikethis approach to your hair, messy waves are a great option. They're full of texture and movement, and will never seem uptight.

Styling tip - Apply some matte putty to keep your hair in check without crushing the texture.

High-volume afro

A headful of well-shaped curls is the perfect alternative to tight, faded cuts and the omnipresent 'short back and sides' styles. You can stick with your natural hair color or switch it up like the model above for an original afro look that's all your own.

Styling tip - It's important to get regular trims to keep your 'fro in good shape while growing it.

Long curls

Another great bed head look, this style is perfect for the lazy boys among you. You can sweep it all back when you need to look pulled together or leave it au naturel when pairing it with casual attire.
