Usually, people with straight hair want curly hair, and sometimes, people with curly hair wish they’d have straight hair to make dealing with it a tad bit easier. Nonetheless, all strands of curly hair are beautiful and they contain their own personality which makes it unique. Managing it can be stressful and tiring at times, especially in climates that aren’t curl friendly, for example, summer. The sweat and humidity cause extra frizz, plus the heat just makes having hair down uncomfortable and, occasionally, impractical.

These are eight of our favorite natural hairstyles of the summer.
