If blondes supposedly have more fun, do curly blondes have the most? Is having both curly and blonde hair considered a beauty power move? Do such silky, springy strands even get frizzy? (These are the hard-hitting questions, folks.) If styling curly blonde hair has you frazzled, you can embrace your natural curls with some easy tricks. Some quick and simple hairstyles let those with curly hair get in on the styling action. We're talking ponytails and half-ups, twists and braids—they're all on the menu. Sure, honey-hued and buttery blonde curls might never truly outgrow their wily ways (thank goodness!), but we wouldn't want it any other way. Here are 17 easy hairstyles for blonde curly hair that will turn your most uninspired hair days into show-stopping ones.

Like the bubble ponytail, a bubble half-up is even more fun when paired with curls. Bring two sections together at the top to create a ponytail. Add an elastic every 3-4 inches and gently loosen the hair. Add to the look with a few stylish accessories.

This style is giving us major Nordic vibes, and we're here for it. Starting around your temples, braid two small sections of hair and secure with clear elastics. Pull the rest of your hair into a low ponytail, and wrap the two braids around the base.

The trick to getting this volume-packed pony: layering two ponytails. This style needs some texture to keep the trick hidden, so it's perfect for curly hair. The top ponytail gives you all the lift you'd ever need, while the hidden ponytail right underneath makes your pony look longer.
