I have a ribbon (actually a belt technically, haha) that I am using.  I am wearing my hair down, using curl formers to get a more stylized curl, and shelacking it with devacurl hairspray.   My hair is a little longer than chin length and pretty spirally.  I’ve test run a few time with good results.  I may pin some side pieces up depending on how it goes. 🙂

I have naturally curly hair and I’m straightening my hair specificially to avoid frizz. My hair is more frizzy when it’s curly than it is straight. Devacurl products are the best though. Definitely get your hands on some of those products to style your hair.

caribcurls :  I’m wearing a chignon, but if I were doing it myself, I’d probably get one of those sock bun things and call it a day. In my case I just prefer a more tied-down look. 

If you want to show them off, I think something like this would be lovely:


Simple enough to do yourself; you just need a nice clip and the right styling product to define your curls.

caribcurls :  naturally curly here. I did a partial braided updo and swept to the side with a few face framing pieces.

I’m going to wear my hair down, with a flower crown.

 Hands down DevaCurl products are the BEST for naturally curly hair.  Literally every single product I’ve tried from their line has been great.  For a day to day look I wash at night, use their detangler, scrunch with the styling cream, and dry in a microfiber towel turban overnight.  I re-touch the next day, but doing my hair takes *maybe* 2 minutes.

If you want a natural look I would do that and then it should be easy enough to pin back into a half-up, half-down style, or pin into an easy updo.

DevaCurl products that I love love love are the styling cream, the detangler, the “heaven in hair” hair mask, and the styling foam.  I don’t use their products to wash my hair (yowza, the price!), but I use them to style and ever since I found DevaCurl felt like I’ve upped my hair game drastically.  Plus I’m lazy and my hair looks flipping amazing every time…I actually do LESS with it now than I did previously and it looks so much better.

caribcurls :  I have nothing helpful to say except I’m jealous of your beautiful curls!  They are gorgeous!  Whatever you do you need to highlight them!!!

I had a side braid with a flower crown. I needed it out of the way but updos hurt my head so a braid was perfect. My friend curled it first which seems redundant but made it much smoother and easier to work with. My natural hair is so tangly it’s impossible to style. I only have semi-curly hair though so if you have very defined curls you probably don’t need that step.
