Hairstyles that embrace naturally curly hair are very pretty and can be super easy to style when you know how. A simple faux bob is a great look to try as it's an updo that can totally transform your look, creating the illusion of a new haircut. It's also really easy to achieve once you've mastered the technique.

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse
Blow-dryer with diffuser
Tail comb
Hair elastic
Bobby pins
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Scrunch some Elastic Curl Mousse evenly through damp hair. Make sure you've covered all the hair and then blow-dry using a diffuser. Keep scrunching as the hair dries.

Step two: Once all of the hair is completely dry, use a tail comb to create a deep side part. Go for whichever side feels the most comfortable, there are no real rules about which side a hair part should be on!

Step three: Gather the hair into a very loose, low pony and secure with a hair elastic. For a more voluminous look like the model in the photo, tease the lower layers of hair before gathering it into a ponytail.

Step five: Pull the elastic down the length of the pony and stop about an inch before the ends. Fold it under the rest of the hair and roll it in toward the nape of your neck. Secure with bobby pins

Step six: For long-lasting hold and no crunchiness, mist your whole style with Bold Control Hairspray to finish. That's it!

Team this hairstyle with some floral accessories for a fresh spring look.

Happy styling!
