Gabrielle Union Is Embracing Her Natural Curls! And More Stars Who Rock Their Ringlets
The star has been embracing her own natural texture — she even launched a whole haircare line dedicated to serving textured hair! — and her basketball star husband is loving the look. "You know my wife don't normally go for the big hair,” he told Entertainment Tonight at the CFDA Awards in New York City. "She’s been doing it lately, so you know it's the whole thing."
The model has been wearing her hair straight lately, but she's reminiscing about her natural curls on Instagram. After a few months of pin-straight styles, Joan shared a sexy tribute shot, writing "#WBW Natural."
The star has tried every style imaginable (and given us the inside scoop on all of them). But the most exciting? Her natural strands -- which she's finally nursed back to health. "When you've spent the past however many years growing your damaged hair back, avoiding heat, wearing wigs and trying every natural product in the world and you finally see a little curl pattern comin back...#yeslawwwwd," she wrote on Instagram.
You may not recognize her without her Victoria's Secret bombshell blowout - but as it turns out, when the Portuguese model is off-duty, she has a head full of equally-sexy ringlets.
If anyone can make a case for sporting your natural ringlets, it’s Ashley, who has successfully mastered the art of taming her perfectly bouncy lob.
The model embraces her natural texture from the beach to the red carpet. But to enhance her curls for events, Alves’ hairstylist Owen Gould tells PeopleStyle, “I curled random sections all throughout her hair using a super thin curling iron, which tamed a little bit of the frizz and created a more polished curl.”
This summer, Ciara has swapped her typical smooth golden blowout for a more natural (and even sexier) spiral look.
Vanessa not only embraced her natural curls, she added extensions to make them even bigger. But with summer humidity comes tons of fluff – so her hairstylist, Riawna Capri, tells PeopleStyle that oil is her secret weapon: “Incorporating a light oil in your routine will hydrate [hair] and help eliminate frizz.”
This purple hue wasn't the only part of Kerry's Met Gala glam that took us for surprise — her amazing voluminous texture (created by hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew using a curling iron) was a fun departure from her typical, sleeker looks.
If anyone's ready to make curls happen this summer, it's Jenna, who urged followers on Instagram to “bring back the spiral perm” with her.
The model's natural texture is wavier, but how amazing does Gigi look with a full head of retro-looking spirals?
What lies behind Emmy Rossum's straightened blowouts? Naturally bouncy ringlets that even the best perm couldn't recreate.
“She was so embracing of her natural curls – she rarely wears her natural texture, so she loved it,” Jennifer Lopez's hairstylist, Juan Carlos Maciques told PeopleStyle of the curly bob she wore on Shades of Blue. (Which is funny, because she confessed to People that she feels sexiest with curly hair!)
The star decided to revert to the natural curls she rocked on Sister, Sister after years of heat-styling her strands — and she says she's never been happier. “Have been loving my curls so much this year,” she wrote in an Instagram post.
She's dabbled in bouncy blowouts, sleek straight strands and everything in between, but Queen Bey seems to love her tight natural texture best — especially to whip once she hits the stage.
Surprise: Ariana actually lets her hair down from time to time! And when she does, her “healthy curls” are revealed.
It's safe to say that Keri (and Felicity) encouraged curly girls everywhere to rock their natural texture in the late '90s.
Here's a blast from the past: Tay's old-school spirals! The star embraced them for years before going short and straight.
SARAH JESSICA PARKER
The only thing we want more from from SJP than a Sex and the City revival series is the return of her natural texture.
It's been a while since she's embraced them, but Mariah Carey and her curls belong together.
