The saying “you always want what you can’t have” applies to a lot of things in life — but mostly hair. If you have long coiled locks, chances are you spent a lot of time wanting straight, if not subtly wavy hair — and vice versa.
Curly hair, like any hair, is a huge part of someone’s identity, so the moment you open your mind to styling your ringlets– instead of trying to straighten and/or damage them into something they’re not — the easier it becomes to embrace the mane you were born with.
At the end of the day, you can do anything with your curls — and these influencers have proven that with inspiring posts that boasts looks ranging from lazy day chic messy buns to fierce night on the town curls.
