Some of the best hairstyles for coily hair

Compared to other types of hair (straight, wavy, and curly), coily hair can be a little difficult to tame and manage. One way to go about it is to flatten them. However, most people prefer to flaunt their natural hair type and do not wish to go through the hassle of straightening their coily hair regularly. Braiding coily hair too is a time-consuming process. However, by picking the right hairstyles that are not just flattering but also easy, one can easily manage their coily hair. 

Now before we get into all that, let’s understand what exactly is coily hair? 

What Is Coily Hair?

Coily hair is a type of curly hair that is very voluminous. The curls are extremely tight and the hair often feels dry and frizzy. To tackle the frizziness, use the Godrej Professional Shampoos & Hair Serums for Frizzy Hair after washing and drying your hair. Coily hair is also known as type 4 hair category and is further divided into type 4A, 4B, and 4C depending on the size of the strands and hair pattern. Coily hair type people often struggle with finding the perfect coily hairstyles that are easy to make and also look fabulous. 

So here’s a list of some really convenient coily hairstyles. Whether you have long coily hair or short coily hair, don’t worry because there’s a solution for everyone!

Hairstyles for Coily Hair Women And Men

1. Low Voluminous Bun

Simple yet sleek, you can push back your coily hair into a low bun and fasten with a cute colourful scrunchy. This is a very easy hairstyle for coily hair and can even be achieved on the go! Men with long coily hair can also go for this coily hairstyle.

2. Side Swept Pompadour

A side-swept pompadour is one of the trendiest coily hairstyles out there. It lets you escape the hassle of braiding your hair. It allows you to have the volume at the top while the rest of your hair is arranged neatly at the back.

3. Coily Hair Top Knot

A coily hair top knot is comfortable, chic and helps in the management of long coily hair. Tightly secure your curls at the top of your head with a sturdy hair tie. Instead of using a basic hair tie, you can also secure the top knot with a headscarf as it’s a great hair accessory and will make you look very stylish.

4. Sleek Pixie Cut

There’s nothing as classy as a coily hair pixie cut. Perfect for anyone who wants to sport short coily hair, a pixie cut accentuates the shape of your face even as your curls stand out. Use the Godrej Professional Shine On! Shine Spray to ensure tangle-free hair each time you step out

5. Coily Mohawk

Mohawks aren’t reserved just for people with straight hair; both men and women with coily hair type can rock it equally well. The buzzed sides balance out the mohawk at the top. Coily hair already has a lot of volume and that adds to this coily hairstyle. Men can use the Godrej Professional Mold & Hold Matte Finish Hair Wax to further style their hair. It is suitable for all hair types.

6. Coily Space Buns

Parting your hair into two sections and tying them up into space buns on both sides is another fashionable hairdo that’ll make you stand out. It’s one of the few hairstyles for coily hair that does not require much effort.

7. A High Ponytail

This is the perfect hairstyle that can look both casual and formal, depending on how you’re dressed. The benefit of wearing your hair up in a high ponytail is that it keeps your hair in place while also letting you flaunt your tight curls. Add some highlights and your coily hair will look even more trendy! Consider washing your hair with the Godrej Professional’s Quinoa Smooth Shampoo which makes hair smooth and is suitable for colour-treated hair as well.

8. Coily Hair Bangs

Most people don’t realise that bangs look stunning on women with coily hair too. If you have long coily hair then you can tie your hair up in a bun that’s situated at the nape of your neck. Alternatively, if you have short coily hair, just let them loose. Coily hair bangs look flattering no matter how you style them. 

People with coily hair often prefer to braid their hair. But braiding is not the only option. The hairstyles mentioned above are great alternatives for people with coily hair type who wish to try something different every day. However, one should always keep in mind that a big part of taming coily hair is using the right products. Ideally, opt for sulphate-free products that will not strip away natural oils. Moreover, products like Godrej Professional’s Honey mask & honey shampoo that include natural emollients are extremely useful in keeping your hair well-hydrated and reducing frizziness.
