We’ve made our point – washing and styling a curly mane can be a workout in and of itself. We all want to hit the gym, but the dread of ruining our curly hair is enough to make us forego a decent workout sesh. Don’t let your hair bog you down from getting healthy and fit. Before you grab your yoga mat, check out some life-saving curly hairstyles that you can wear without fretting.

Curly Hair = Space Buns


If quirky is your middle name, space buns should definitely be on your list of hairstyles. After all, life is too short for boring hair!


Step 1: Make two high ponytails with your hair by parting it in the middle. Secure them with curly-hair-friendly hair ties.

Step 2: Make a bun by twisting the length of one ponytail into a rope and wrapping it around the base. Then, use a hair tie to hold it in place.

Step 3: Do the same thing on the other side.

Step 4: Set your space buns with a few spritzes of hair spray once you’re finished.

Fused Triple Braided Hairdo

The fused triple braid hairdo will satisfy the braid aficionado in you. Don’t be put off by how hard this look seems; with time, this long curly hairdo will grow on you.


Step 1: Work a few drops of serum through your locks using your palms.

Step 2: Divide your hair into three portions that are evenly spaced.

Step 3: Make basic three-part braids, one section at a time.

Step 4: Weave the three individual braids together loosely into a thick, unified braid.

Pineapple, Princess!


With the pineapple updo, take the #IWokeUpLikeThis look to the next level and give yourself some extra ‘me time’ in the morning. Not to mention, this updo is perfect for curly hair with bangs.


Step 1: Run a dollop of mousse through the curls with your fingertips.

Step 2: For the time being, leave your bangs unclipped so they don’t get in the way of your updo.

Step 3: Tie a loose scrunchie around the rest of your hair at the back of your head.

Step 4: Secure the hairdo with bobby pins at the base of the ponytail. Allow the loose tendrils to slay.

Step 5: Take your bangs out of their clips and let them fall naturally across your forehead.

Scarf Braid

Whoever says braids can get monotonous has obviously never tried a scarf. If you try this braid variation with curly hair, you’ll be able to break out of your style rut.


Step 1: Part your hair into three portions and swoop it to one side. You’ll be weaving a standard French braid with the addition of a unique scarf.

Step 2: Tie one end of the scarf to the middle section’s root and begin braiding as you normally would.

Step 3: Tie the braid with a scrunchie when you get to the end. Pull the parts of your braid together.

Step 4: Using bobby pins, bind the braid into a bun. To  keep your bun in place, use a hairspray that’s not too heavy.

Flaunt those badass curly hairstyles at the gym or elsewhere! We can’t wait to try them all out!
