You may have seen the Celebrities curly hair slideshow on my main blog page.  Here are more hairstyles with a description of the various curly hairstyle. 

Black hair has a wide range of textures.  It can be straight to the ultra-curly.  Check out the Celebrities who have natural curls or otherwise.  See if any of these hairstyles strike your fancy.

Loose Waves

Recreate it: A medium-barrel curling iron will help you get these loose waves, whether your hair is relaxed or not. If you want crisp definition in your natural curls, use the iron to define select pieces.


Jill Scott's Full and Magnificant 'fro

Full and Magnificent Fro

Recreate it: If you already have a good cut in place, like Jill Scott does here, and your hair is similar to hers, just shampoo it and let it air dry. Apply natural oils to wet or dry hair, or spray dry hair with an oil sheen if you like.


Laura Izibor's Natural Curls

Natural Curls

Recreate it: A great cut makes this styling job a breeze. Let natural curls and coils be themselves, but add definition with finger twirling where desired. Style hair while wet or damp, let it air dry and that's it -- you have a full-volume 'fro that's completely unique.


Lisa Gay Hamilton's Low-maintenance Curls

Low Maintenance Curls

Recreate it: Want low-maintenance hair? Short cuts can give you that ease. This is super easy to recreate if your hair is cut the same way. Wear natural hair as is, or texturize it if you want more defined curls. Cover at night with a big bonnet and finger style in the morning, spritzing with water or a product like Ojon Revitalizing Mist to fluff curls back to life.


Monique Coleman's Big Hair

Big Hair

Recreate it: Already have natural hair that's similar to Monique Coleman's? Pick it out with a plastic pick, after applying a product like Carol's Daughter Hair Milk. At night, you can loosely twist your hair (it doesn't have to be neat) to prevent tangling and then cover with a bonnet. In the morning, undo the twists and pick out for big volume.


Rissi Palmer's Big Volume Hair

Big Volume Hair

Recreate it: Got curls for days like Rissi Palmer? Use a product like Miss Jessie's Curly Meringue on wet hair and allow to dry. You can also wet set on perm rods and backcomb for additional volume.


Sophie Okonedo's Soft Curls

Soft Curls

Recreate it: Ladies who already have a texture like Sophie Okonedo's can simply wet style it, but finger curl sections where you want added definition and more controlled curls. You can also wet set hair on perm rods; once hair is dry, gently pull apart curls to create more volume.


Syesha Mercado's Head Full of Curls and Coils

Head Full of Curls and Coils

Recreate it: Here, Syesha takes advantage of her hair's natural texture. If your hair is similar, style it while wet or damp with a lightweight holding gel like Paul Mitchell Super Clean Sculpting Gel. You can also get similar results on straightened hair by wet-setting on small perm rods and drying under a hood or bonnet dryer. Once curls are dry, do not comb or brush. Finger fluff if needed and pin up each side, while letting the front hang down.


Tamara Tunie's Glam Hair

Glam Hair

Recreate it: Hair that's naturally curly or texturized can be styled like this with an application of gel or holding mousse. You can also recreate it on small perm rods or with a small-barrel curling iron.


Tempestt Bledsoe's Natural Waves

Natural Waves

Recreate it: Tempestt Bledsoe has been a longtime natural hair wearer and this style showcases her hair's versatility. Natural ladies, simply style your hair into two-strand twists and let them set for several hours, overnight or for a few days. Turn your twists into a twist-out like this by simply unraveling them.


Tracie Thoms' Perfect Little Spirals

Perfect Little Spirals

 Recreate it: These highly defined spirals can be achieved with
  • Skinny perm rods and setting lotion
  • Finger twirling wet hair saturated with gel or setting foam
  • A small barrel curling iron on dry hair
You have a few different options in achieving this particular look, which features carefully controlled curls.

Voluminous Curls

Recreate it: Ladies with relaxed or texturized hair can get a style similar to this with a straw set or skinny twists unraveled into a twist out. Simply use setting lotion or foam on wet hair and allow to fully dry. Natural-haired ladies can also style this with a twist out -- if humidity is a problem, try a light holding product like Organic Root Stimulator Lock & Twist Gel when twisting damp hair.

Fair lady, Tibetan maiden.
A vision of  shyness, beauty,
A smile so bright, a face so lovely
Perhaps, a talent secretly hidden?
