17 Beautiful Ways to Style Blonde Curly Hair
If blonde hair is like everyone’s bubbly best friend and curly hair is like everyone’s spunky one, being both blonde and curly should be considered nothing less than a beauty power move. And if, supposedly, blondes have more fun, do curly blondes have the most? Do such silky, springy strands even get frizzy? (These are the hard-hitting questions, folks.)
While the suggestion of styling can quiet even the craziest of golden curls, there are some quick and simple hairstyles that let curly girls get in on the 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.
Clipped Half-Up Style
A quick half-up style does the work when you have curly "Carrie Bradshaw" hair. A bar clip just gives a touch of style.
Easy Twisted Ponytail
With just a few twists, your curls will be back and out of your way. Dress up this easy look with a jeweled pin. Find the tutorial here.
Bubble Half-Up Style
Like the bubble ponytail, a bubble half-up is even more fun when paired with curls. This look adds in a few accessories, too.
Braided Low Pony
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.
Classic High Pony
The trick to getting this volume-packed pony: layering two ponytails. The top ponytail gives you all the lift you’d ever need, while the hidden ponytail right underneath makes your pony look longer.
Luckily for you curly-haired ladies, your spirals are already dressed up. Just add a few jeweled pins, and you’re set with a five-minute formal look.
Nothing has come back stronger than the shag, and your curls will make the most of this classic cut. Short, choppy bangs are equal parts sweet and edgy.
For short blonde curly hair, it doesn’t get much easier than this. As in, you don’t have to mess with intricate updos or crazy braids. Win-win.
This look will transition easily from day to night, work to party. Create three or four small ponytails, then flip and pull through to create small twists before securing into a bun.
Clipped Side Part
Speaking of Carrie Bradshaw, this style has us missing her iconic 1990’s curls. The funky clip fits the bill, too.
Classic Low Bun
Sometimes, we like to go back to the basics. Pull your curls into a casual chignon, and throw in pin detailing just for fun. If you’re running late, this look is a no-brainer.
To us, a curly pixie is the perfect pixie. This mane swears by Bb. Curl Anti-Humidity Gel Oil to keep the volume but get rid of the frizz.
Easy Braided Bun
Feel free to hit the snooze button more than once if you’ve mastered this easy braid style. In just one step, a Dutch or French braid adds major style a basic bun—and distracts from any frizz. Find the tutorial here.
Double Knotted Half-Up
We’re not tricking you. This style is just two separate sections of your hair being knotted the old-fashioned way. But it looks mighty cool. Find the tutorial here.
If you’re not so confident in your updo abilities, this braided half-up meets you halfway by keeping things simple.
This cut is a classic on curly girls—and don’t you forget it. Layers make sure the spirals get plenty of natural volume.
Double Braid Headband
This style involves a little more work, but don’t all good things? For your next formal event, we dare say this curly look will be the belle of the ball. Find the tutorial here.
