Curls, Curls, Curls

The ’90s had those crunchy, stiff-looking curls (see Nicole Kidman with fake-looking curls here), but now we’re way more into natural curls that look, well, natural. Corinne Bailey Rae and Jasika Nicole show that natural texture can be extremely sexy and beautiful.

What we love: Aside from the obvious — that these curls look amazing — the best part is how good they are for your hair. There’s no point in frying it with a blow dryer and straightening iron when you can keep it healthy, soft and curly.

Try it at home: If you have naturally curly hair, keep it in tip-top condition by using moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and a weekly deep conditioning treatment. To style, apply curl cream in sections and let your hair air dry. Time saving and good for your hair — nice.
