I just love that curly haired girls are so feisty!

My first reaction when I read your post was to suggest an updo, a french twists, twirling / twisting hair away from your face with hair accessories (i.e. headbands, sleek clips, etc.) How boring compared to other posts.

PS - My hair always looks a little more professional, when I streamline some of the curls with a curling iron.

Hope that helps.
