If you’re like most women, then you probably cringe a little bit when you hear the word “frizz.” More than likely, you’ve battled frizz countless times with your own hair, using creams, serums, and all kinds of other frizz-defying styling products to try and fight it. However, who says frizzy hair needs to have such negative connotations? When styled right, there is a place for frizzy hair in today’s world of hair trends. So if you’re ready to stop fighting your frizz and actually embrace it for a change, here are some super cute and different frizzy hairstyles worth giving a try.
Some women are lucky enough to be born with curly hair, but if you have straight or even slightly wavy hair, this style can still work for you; it’ll just take a little more time and effort.
If you have curly hair, you don’t have to do much! Simply let your hair dry naturally in all its curly wonder. Then, once it’s completely dry, brush through the curls thoroughly. This will loosen your curls a bit while also causing your hair to frizz. That’s okay! It’ll also give you tons of great volume, especially if you decide to take the extra step and back-comb your hair. If the frizz is a little too much, use a smoothing cream or frizz-defying spray to reduce it a bit.
If you have naturally straight hair, achieve this look by curling your hair into tight curls and spritzing with hairspray before you brush it out and rock this look.
A little bit of frizz can be your friend, especially when you’re trying to pull off a “lazy” or messy look. In fact, frizz can go a long way in helping you achieve the coveted messy ponytail or “bedhead ponytail.” Begin with your naturally dry, slightly frizzy hair. Use your fingers to pull as much of your hair as possible into a high ponytail; use a brush or comb to brush any remaining hair into the ponytail, but be careful not to make it look too sleek.
Once your hair is in a high ponytail, tease the ends of your hair using your fingers or a comb; this will accentuate the frizz a bit and will also add messy volume. Finish off with a little bit of hair spray for an effortless look that will have heads turning.
The Frizzy Bun
The high bun gets a fun, frizzy makeover with this hairstyle. Start with dry or slightly damp hair. Use a brush to pull your hair into a ponytail on the top of your head. Then, using bobby pins or spin pins, twist your hair into a bun and secure it. Now, make sure your hair isn’t pulled into too sleek of a bun (it might be). If this is a case, go ahead and run your fingers in the opposite direction of your hair movement from the base of the bun to your hairline, creating a little bit of messy frizz. You can also tousle the bun a bit so that there are a few scraggly pieces hanging out before finishing the look off with hair spray.
Learning to embrace your frizz isn’t just liberating, but it also helps to make styling your hair a lot more fun. Be sure to give these styles a try for yourself!
