Natural curls are the envy of all women. We hear from women with naturally curly hair all of the time expressing their need for different ways to wear their curls. This can be a bit of a challenge especially for those short on time. In this weeks journal, we are sharing Quick Naturally Curly Hairstyles For The Busy Woman to give you some inspirations. Plus, we are also sharing products and tools to make styling a breeze.
Let It Flow
The quickest and easiest way to wear your curls is to just let them flow. If your bored with the current shape of your curls, opt for an updated shag haircut with fringe. Adding a fringe is an instant way to change up how your everyday curls look. The image above images with bangs are favorites of ours, its very fresh and current. It's a simple adjustment to make at your next hair appointment with a big pay off.
Above you will see some more options for letting the natural curls flow. We like to mention this because when you are short on time, this is the easiest way to get out the door quick. Utilize our Iles Formula Finishing Serum, applied to the hair wet and watch those curls come to life.
When hair is wet comb through with a large tooth comb all your curls, then apply liberally our Serum and knead and tenderly squeeze your curls back into shape. Do not touch your hair again until curls are dry.
The Iles Formula Serum provides hydration to the curls leaving you with light and airy bouncy curls, it will form sumptuous movement without weighing the hair down, no crunchy curls. Sounds like a dream right? If you have areas of your hair that no matter what you do the curl doesn't show up there, not to worry. Simply take a curling iron that matches the size of your curl and curl random sections vertically in the direction of your natural curl pattern. Less is more with the iron, so don't over do it.
Brush Out The Curls
Another option for Quick Naturally Curly Hairstyles For The Busy Woman is brushing out the curls. This may seem a bit of a contradiction, but it really isn't. What is so fun about this, is there will still be a curly texture that is present, but it just changes it up a bit. This is a great option at the end of the week, when you will be washing your hair again soon.

What type of brush should you use? We love dressing brushes by Mason Pearson. They are a bit more of an investment, but will last a lifetime. You can definitely find more cost effective versions, you will just have to shop around and be sure to find one as similar to the type shown here as possible.
Pull It Back
A ponytail always just "works" when you need something easy yet fun to do with your hair. Go for a high, low or straight back ponytail, the choice is yours. The hair you direct back can be kept in its original curl pattern, or you can use a stronger holding gel with shine to slick the front back. This combination of the slick back and curls compliments each other very well. Here are some examples:
If your curls just aren't behaving, and you just can't deal, a top knot is an easy go to hairstyle. Top Knots are a nice option because they are great with jeans and a t-shirt and running errands or dressed up for work in business attire. Besides the ponytail, there really isn't a quicker option for styling your hair. Our suggestion, allow bits of your curls to loosely fall from the top knot for a more lived in feel. Top knots are one of those styles that the less time and work you put into pulling them up, the better they look...Go figure.... Here are some top knot inspirations:
Whichever curly hairstyle you decide to do, don't over think it. Less is more with curls because no matter what curly hairstyle you wear, curls should always look as if it naturally just happened.
