Need a great new evening look? Give these curly and wavy hairstyle ideas a try!
Perfect for a party or dinner date, these curly and wavy hairstyle ideas will have you looking your best on a night out!
Side Styled Waves
This is a great day to night option. During the day you can wear your waves loose, and for night-time, side style and pin them into place with hair pins. Update your makeup with a smokey eye look and a deep lipstick shade and your look will be complete.
Pinned Back Curls
While loose curls can look great draped down your back, often pinning the curls back into a loose ponytail or half-up style just makes the look even more stunning. Finish this look off with face framing curls and ensure that you style your curls back over the front of your shoulder after pinning them back to allow them to garner all the attention.
This is for those with short hair. If you thought wearing curls weren't an option for you, then this look should change your mind! Short to mid-length hair can look great when a mass of curls are added. The key to this big look is adding your curls with a curling wand and then brushing them out with a soft bristle hair brush. It creates the great loose curls seen here, and helps you channel your inner retro goddess.
Old Hollywood Waves
This hairstyle is perfect for any evening event that requires a polished hairdo. The waves are styled to frame the face with a lovely shape that just calls for shiny, healthy looking locks, simple accessories and a touch of red lipstick.
