It’s no secret that curly hair and the natural hair movement have officially taken the fashion world by storm. We see curls confidently worn on the red carpet, commercials, runways, and magazine covers, and the sense of self-acceptance and individuality that it brings forth is immensely refreshing.
But, truthfully, just because we love our natural curls, coils, and waves, doesn’t mean that we’re required to abandon sleek and glossy strands completely (unless you want to, of course). There are a ton of styling options to choose from with blowouts, especially if you’re interested in adding texture (curls or waves), and it can really add a bit of zest to your overall look if you’ve been bored lately. Plus, your straightened ‘do can last up to a week or longer, provided you take the right steps to keep it looking fresh (sleeping on a silk pillowcase, putting your hair in a ponytail/bun during physical activities, etc.)
As long as you’re bringing some heat protectant along for the ride and you avoid using heat too often, you can experiment with a voluminously fluffy blown-out look, or a shiny pin-straight style, and still come back to healthy curls on wash day. If you’re ready to make the switch, ahead are ten super silky styles that will give you all your blowout goals for 202.

If you’re not committed to a full-on ponytail, the half-up half-down style is here for you. Don’t forget to wrap a piece around the base to hide the elastic and pull to secure the ponytail tightly and for added volume.
