The Best Haircuts for Curly Haired Beauties
Big, Southern, curly hair is both a blessing and a curse. Although I always grew up to the tune of my dad saying, “People would pay big money for those curls at the salon!” I always found myself secretly envious of girls whose hair was significantly more manageable and cooperated with the hairstyle-of-the-moment without fuss. Curly girls such as myself know all too well the (often anxiety ridden) surprise of waking up in the morning and wondering what on earth your curls are going to deliver today. Some days I have strangers comparing my ‘do to Taylor Swift circa 2008 (I’ll take it) and others...well, let’s just say they call for a good, old-fashioned messy bun. However, for every limitation that curly hair brings, there is an even greater opportunity to wow by embracing every last ringlet for its true worth.

How To Perfectly Tease Your Hair
One thing’s for sure—Southern girls love big hair. And they know how to rock timeless looks that never go out of style. Sometimes you would love for your hair to have a little more body, and there are a few simple steps you can take to get it. Give your hair a glam pick-me-up for that special event you have coming up or just for your everyday look. This effortless yet elegant look is sure to impress. The Birmingham-based bloggers at Irrelephant show you the best way to tease your hair. Follow this tutorial for lifted roots that last.
Start by sectioning your hair at the crown of your head. Take a small section of hair, and spray it with medium-hold hairspray, from root to tip. Using a fine-toothed comb, push the hair down to the scalp three times. This will give the roots more lift and add to your hair’s overall volume. Repeat this step two more times with sections ending at the crown. Once you’re down, flip the hair back into place, and gently smooth out the tease with a comb. Next, move on to the front of your hair. Take a section of the left side of your hair, spray it with hair spray, and tease. Repeat this step with two more sections, or however much volume you desire on that side. Flip it back into place, and gently smooth it out with a comb. Move on to the right section of your hair. Take a portion, spray it, and tease. Repeat this step with two more sections, or however much volume you desire on that side. Flip the hair back into place, and gently smooth it with a comb. Finish off the look with hairspray. And you’re ready to go! For added volume, we recommend these products. This perfectly tousled, blown-out look will carry you from day to night.
