If we’re all being honest, on most days, a fancy hairstyle isn’t worth the effort it takes to complete it. They’re certainly nice, but for daily styling, everyone needs something quick and easy.
If you’re looking for some casual, simple hairstyles for thick curly hair, here are some suggestions.
Each of these tutorials offer a variety of looks, and has options for every skill level. Even if the most complicated thing you can do is a ponytail, you should still be able to find a style that works for you.
I like this tutorial because the hairstyles are so basic. It’s great for anyone who isn’t really familiar with styling their hair. Plus, as she states in the video, all of these can be done on the go.
Another good point about the styles she does, is that they don’t require elastics. As someone with this hair type, I appreciate this since elastics can be annoying to work with and potentially damaging. So while this video isn’t one to use if you need something that looks clean and professional, it’s perfect for your day-to-day styling needs.
Styles for Lazy Days
This video is great because she offers up a wide mix of styles. Some are as simple as parting your hair and clipping it, while others incorporate braids and similar techniques. Overall, regardless of your skill level, you should be able to use this tutorial. It also has a different options for if you want to wear your hair down, or have it completely up.
For this hair type in particular, I also like that most the styles don’t require too much fussing with and manipulating the hair. When you get your curls the way you want them to be, you don’t want to end up ruining or damaging them with the styling process.
Of course, the best part of this video is that they’re all super quick and easy to do. It’s the ideal video for those days when you’re just too lazy to be bothered, but still want to look put-together.
Casual but Clean Styles
This video starts out with what is probably the easiest messy, top-knot bun ever. And it looks really cute. Some of the other styles do require a little more technique, but most of the ones on this video are easy and straightforward. Like the previous video, this one offers a mix of up or half-down styles to suit your tastes. And while the styles are all still casual, some look more put-together. They’re good options for those days when you have the energy to put in a little more effort, but still need something quick.
Thicker, curlier hair can often be a pain to style because you don’t really want to brush or comb it too much. And it’s also not suited to a lot of more delicate styles, since there’s just so much of it. But that doesn’t mean you have to give up on styling all together. The benefit of this hair type is that you can make fuller, more voluminous looks without any added products. And there are plenty of style options that allow you to skip the elastic, complicated manipulation, or anything else that can knot or damage your hair. With the right knowledge and even just minimal effort, you can style your hair.
