Long Curly Hair: Natural Texture That's Always In Style

Hollywood waves and beachy hair might be this season's top hairstyle trends, but long cascading curls never go out of fashion. Natural looking and classic, they add a touch of femininity to the longest locks.

Contemporary curls

These days when we talk about curls, we don't mean large ringlets. Curls today have loosened up, almost balanced on the edge of waves. Whether they are natural, semi-permanent or created with a curling iron, it's important to master their contours. They should be supple, but keep their spring.

A question of mass

Even though the look suits round, long, triangular and square faces, as well as all hair colours, if you don't have naturally curly hair, there are some preliminary steps necessary. According to Delphine Courteille, hairstylist at L'Oréal Professionnel, 'Only medium to thick hair, with a good amount of mass, can really pull off long curls'. All of the texturising products in the world won't help fine hair.

The importance of drying for natural curls

For straight or wavy hair, a curling iron is the only path to these cascading curls. For naturally curly hair, however, it's all in the blow-dry. Delphine Courteille specifies that a diffuser is indispensable, so that hot air spreads throughout the hair, creating balanced bouncy curls.
