10 Simple Styles for Unmanageable Hair

If your hair has its own will, and after hours of styling it jumps back into its original form, you might want to work with it and not against it. There is something romantic about naturally wavy and curly hair that you can turn into an adventure. If you have given up on straightening your hair just to see it take on a new shape at the first sign of moisture, you might try a different approach. Below you will find ten hairstyles you can try on your – seemingly – unmanageable hair to make you look stunning and natural.

Side Ponytail

It is simple and elegant, and you can create a romantic look if you put several bands or ribbons in your ponytail about 2 inches apart. If you have a shorter side bang, you can use a few bobby pins to keep your hair back, or a funky hair band.

Fuzzy Bun

The simplest way to keep your frizzy hair out of your face is creating a fuzzy bun. All you need is  a band to keep the hair in place, and a couple of hair pins. If your hair doesn’t want to stay in place, you might get some hair combs put in that are covered by your hair, so you don’t have to worry about the unruly hair getting in  your face or falling out of the bun.
