 Curly Q’s Medium Hairstyle

Adding curls to any medium hairstyle can dramatically change how one feels. There are many types of curls that can be worn with a medium hairstyle. Whether you choose to wear relaxed beach wave curls, tight spiral curls, or messy mangled curls, you will portray very different images with each type of curl. Once you have determined which curls you enjoy, you will want to find the right curling technique for you.

If you enjoy the relaxed beach wave curls, wet your hair and put it in a braid from the base of your skull or two french braids. This will provide you with a waver curl than the spirals. If you prefer to have quicker results, a larger curling iron can provide the same type of curls if you wrap it softly and don’t pull it too tight. Once you have achieved the waves you desire, you will want to put product on your hair to ensure that they hold.

You many enjoy a tighter curl, such as a spiral curl. You can achieve a spiral curl with a smaller curling iron. However, you can also use tighter, smaller braids–requires more braids on your head, which can cause some to loss sleep if they are braided tight. Braiding can also result in different size of spiral curls. Although many enjoy this, as it provide more depth to a medium hairstyle.

Many times mangled curls come with time. However, if you enjoy messy curls, a loose braid and a quick ruffling with your fingers will allow the curls to settle and hairs to loosen causing a more relaxed curl to come out. This resulting in a more casual look for your medium hairstyle.
