40 Long Curly Hairstyles You’ll Want To Try In 2024

40 Long Curly Hairstyles You’ll Want To Try In 2024

Blessed are those with long curly hair because when it comes to styling, the sky is the limit. We’re talking long braids, slicked-back high ponytails, and long curly hairstyles in dazzling shades! With hairstyles like these available, wearing a top knot 24/7 is considered a crime.

1. Coffee Black Long Layered Curly Hair

If you’re looking for a major refresh, then long layers are the answer! Why? Because long layers are responsible for the “bounce effect” that gives life to natural curls.

2. Big Bouncy Copper Pumpkin Ponytail

Here’s the secret to a big bouncy ponytail: tease the base of your ponytail with a fine-tooth comb to make it appear fuller. Use volumizing hairspray to lock the tease in place.

3. Long Blonde Curls With Dark Roots

The dark roots combined with blonde curls provide a natural-looking grow-out. A dream come true for those who want to avoid frequent root touch-ups.

4. Long Curls With Layers And Bangs

BANGS WARNING: Bangs get greasy sooner than the rest of your curls because they absorb more sweat and oil from your face. If you choose this hairstyle, prepare to shampoo your curls with bangs more often than you usually would.

5. Long Frizzy Curls For 3B Hairstyles

The frizzy hair of the 80s is making a comeback! Throw away your curling irons to enjoy the new era of “frizzy and fearless”.

6. Shiny Light Mahogany Waves

Reddish shades are one of the most popular hair colors for curly hair but they fade the fastest, so you’ll need to commit to frequent in-salon treatments. Also, you should avoid excessive heat styling because it can remove color.

7. Platinum Blonde Waves With A Lace Braid

This romantic hairstyle makes you look younger, thanks to the flattering glow that the silvery-blonde shade gives to the skin.

8. Long Hair With Ringlet Curls

Using foam rollers for no-heat curls will allow you to enjoy gorgeous ringlets and completely avoid hair damage when curling your hair.

9. Long Waves With A Slicked-Back Ponytail

This evergreen, chic updo can be worn on any occasion and it can be styled in just a few minutes.

After applying styling cream, smooth and gather your hair with a bristle brush. Tie it with an elastic, forming a ponytail, then wrap your pony with a small strand of hair. Curl the pony with a curling iron and lightly brush through it.

Bonus tip: Here’s how to get waves without heat.

10. Long Curly Hairstyle With A Hair Pin

Looking for an effortless way to style your curly hair? Hair pins help hold your curls in place and also give you that extra oomph of volume.

11. Long Curly Hair With A Dutch Flower Braid

Dutch flower braids are a godsend for any formal occasion. If they seem too complicated, you can always use Dutch braids with clip-in extensions as an alternative.

12. Long Black Curls With A Headband

Dear curly ladies, don’t forget to pick a headband made of soft material to prevent hair damage from friction. (Your curls will thank you later.)

13. Twisted And Tousled Boho Waves

This hairstyle is perfect for those who want to rock a unique boho style without braids. Consider adding hair accessories to make your hairstyle more personalized.

14. Cute Curly Hairstyle With Two Pigtail Buns

Because two buns are better than one!

15. Long Color Blocking Waves

Combining contrasting colors such as purple and orange will give more expression to your waves or curls. It’s time to choose your fave contrasting combo!

16. Glamorous Long Black Waves

After straightening your hair, curl each section of your hair in the same direction. Finish with a soft bristle brush and hairspray to enjoy Hollywood glam waves.

17. Long Black Curls With Grey And Silver Tones

The beautiful contrast of silver and gray tones with black will give that modern appeal to your natural curls and grey hair. It’s one of the best hairstyles for mature curls. #grayhairdontcare

18. Ash-Blonde Curls With Braids And Pink Highlights

“Pink isn’t just a color, it’s an attitude!” Ready to awaken your inner bohemian goddess with one of the coolest curly hairstyles out there?

19. Cornrows With Braids And Curls

Cornrows help protect curls from breakage and moisture loss. Sounds like a good deal, right?

20. Slicked-Back Ponytail In Copper Tones

For added lift (and extra confidence), opt for a slicked-back high ponytail at the crown of your head.

21. Long Black Side-Part Curls

Side-parting doesn’t only give your curls a jaunty boost but also softens the cheekbones and jawline of diamond, square, and heart-shaped faces.

22. Loose Curls With Rich Burgundy Tones

Warmer burgundy tones look flattering on peach and golden skin tones, while cooler burgundy tones go best with olive, pink, or ebony complexions.

23. Wavy Bubble Braid For Long Curly Hairstyles

Bubble braids are a stylish way to keep your hair secured and in place. Just make sure that you don’t use hair ties or elastics that are too tight because this could result in hair breakage.

24. Passion Twist Braids For Long Curly Hair

You can install passion twists in two ways: crochet them into cornrows and box braids or create them from scratch by adding FreeTress water wave braiding hair to your natural hair.

25. Half-Up Half-Down Messy Bun

If you want to revive your three-day-old curls, a water spray bottle, styling gel, and a half-up half-down messy bun will do the job.

26. Bronde Balayage For Long Wavy Hair

The strategic placement of sun-kissed blonde highlights on brunette lengths will add dimension and depth to your hair. It looks great on both medium-length curly hairstyles and long curls.

27. Unapologetically Voluminous Long Curls

For big, voluminous curls, I recommend the “scrunch technique”. After squeezing the excess water from your hair, style it with a curling mousse and scrunch your curls from the ends to the roots as they dry.

28. Long Wavy Twisted Ponytail

A twisted ponytail is one of those effortless hairstyles that look fabulous even on un-styled or one-day-old curly hair.

29. Romantic Side Braid With Side-Swept Bangs

Braids are the perfect combo of style and convenience. The stylish side braid with side-swept bangs will transform you into a romantic goddess.

30. Long Curls With Olive And Neon Green Hair Braids

If you want to avoid potential damage from highlighting your curls, then these vibrant hair extensions for braiding are what you’re looking for.

31. Subtle Balayage For Long Curly Hairstyles

Subtle balayage will enable you to get some color on your long curly hair without making it look obvious. “Subtle is the new dramatic.”

32. Long Curly Ponytail With Cornrows

A ponytail with cornrows will help tame your curly hair and make you look instantly more fashionable for all occasions.

33. Ginger Curls With A Middle-Part

A middle-part helps create some balance on thick hair. The good news is that the middle-part hairstyle suits all face shapes and it also looks amazing on medium hair curly hairstyles.

34. U-Shaped Long Curls

U or V-shaped hairstyle will keep your curls long but light. What do U think about this hairstyle?

35. Long 4B Curls With Cornrows And Braids

No matter how tempting, don’t keep cornrows in for longer than 6 weeks to avoid dryness, tangling, and hair breakage.

36. Blonde-Copper Color Blocking For Long Curly Hair

If you don’t like bold color combinations, copper and blonde shades will give you a more subtle version of color blocking. For more inspiration, check out these trending red and blonde hair color combinations.

37. Bright Orange Curls And Waves

Loose voluminous waves will not only enhance the texture of your natural curls but also make other people jelly of your unique hairstyle.

38. Face-Framing Long Curly Hairstyle

Do you want to take attention away from your forehead and balance out the bottom half of your face? Face-framing layers will do that for you.

39. No-Part Long Curly Hairstyle

Middle-part and side-part have their charms, but no-part is the whole other dimension of fun-and-free that complements any look.

40. Long Waves With A Floral Tiara

To brides-to-be: Long dark waves with a floral tiara will give you that angelic appeal on your special day because you deserve it.
