Let’s go crazy! Curl crazy that is. We’re love bombing you with a round-up of all our top curly hairstyles - all in the one place in our Ultimate Curly Look Book. Curls are always in style and with this handy playbook in your back pocket you’ll have a plethora of curl styles and easy to follow tutorials to choose from - so many you can have a different look for every day of the week!

Read on to learn how to create 13 of our gorge curl looks below in our Ultimate Curly Hairstyles Video Look Book.



Look 1: Classic, Salon Worthy Curls

If you’re looking for a classic curl look, then you can’t go past this tutorial which shows you how to curl your hair the right way using a traditional round curler. We take the guesswork out of curling your hair in this tutorial by showing you how to create gorgeous, salon worthy curls. 

PRO TIP: You can easily personalise your style by choosing your preferred type of curl with this curler. If you want looser, softer curls, take larger sections of hair and for tighter more defined curls, take smaller, thinner sections of hair. Check it out at 0:44.

These curls were created using the 25mm Ceramic Curler. If you still love using classic curling wands but want a tighter curl then choose the 19mm Ceramic Curler or if you want a looser wave go for the 38mm Curler.


Look 2: Natural Curls

Yasss! You can create a natural curl look - you don’t have to be born with it! Simple yet stunning natural curls are a staple style for your look book that you can whip up quickly at home. For those days where you want to add something special to your look but don’t want to look like you’ve spent hours getting ready, a natural curl is perfect to add extra oomph. 

To get this look, use the Curl Secret Optimum on the natural curl setting for a fast, easy curl. With this tool you’ll be out the door in no time and ready to show your gorgeous, natural locks to the world. 


Look 3: Sophisticated Curls

When you need curls that are a little more glamorous and structured for a vibe that oozes sophistication, this curl style is perfect for you. Whether it’s a night out with your friends, a special event such as a wedding or for days when you want to wear your hair out at work, this style will add a special touch to your look.  

To create this look, use the Curl Secret Optimum on the sophisticated curl setting. The secret to achieving such incredible curls every time with this tool is ionic conditioning that gives you smooth, frizz free curls.

Look 5: Soft, Straightener Curls

We know that your straightener can be your best friend to straighten with and of course to curl! The straightener curl can be adjusted to what you want, if you want soft movement then take larger sections and move the straightener through the hair quickly. If you want a more bouncier curl then take smaller sections and move the straightener through your hair slowly.  

This tutorial takes you through how to straighten for perfect polka straight hair but also how to curl with a straightener.  You can also check out this post from Oz Beauty Expert for her tips when it comes to curling with a straightener.

Look 8: Natural, Diffuse Dried Curls

There’s nothing like embracing your natural style and enhancing those beautiful natural curls. When you’re a naturally curly girl then you need to know how to tame them so your curls are frizz-free,divine and ready to impress.  

To enhance natural curls, either dry your hair naturally or when you don’t have time for that use the diffuser on your dryer which will soften the airflow to maintain the shape of your curls while they dry. We recommend using the Digital Sensor Dryer with the diffuser attached for the best results. Watch the tutorial below as we show you how easy it is to enhance your natural curls.
