6 Celebrities with Curly Hair and How to Steal Their Look

Beyonce showed us how great naturally curly hair could look like. Taylor Swift rocks with her curly bangs. Selena Gomez embraces her wavy hair. Meghan Markle looked fab with her coily hair. Justin Timberlake’s curly hair was epic. Zendaya is the queen of curls. That’s just a few names of celebrities with curly hair. 

For years, Hollywood stars showed us that only straight hair is beautiful and finally this is changing for good.

The world is different now and celebrities start to embrace their hair’s natural texture. I mean, look at Taylor Swift – she is glowing with her healthy curls. Look at Shawn Mendes and his messy curls. The list goes on and on.

I remember when I first saw Justin Timberlake on MTV. He was very young, very blond, and very curly. 

Today I’m going to teach you how to steal the curly hair routine from our celebrities!

#1 Beyonce & fab curls

Queen B is constantly changing her curly hairstyles. To avoid the damage, she is treating her hair right

Beyonce is using gentle shampoos and deep conditions her hair often. Her hairstylist Kim Kimble also mentioned that Queen B takes special care of her hair. You can do it, too!

Your hair deserves a royal treatment, so start with conditioning wash, then use a deep conditioner (leave it on your hair for 30 minutes or more then rinse your hair with lukewarm water). 

To get that volume, you need a good styler fixer and lightweight styling balm. Voila!

Queens B’s hair always looks very healthy. Do you know why? Because she is moisturizing her hair.

Her hairstylist also told that Beyonce isn’t obsessed with having very long hair. Queen B thinks that it’s better to have her hair shorter but healthier and shows us that with the right products you can have amazing curls no matter the length.

Kim Kimble recommends using products with proteins and oils. These ingredients bring back moisture to your brittle and dry hair.

Avoid sulfates, silicones, waxes, and phthalates in your hair care routine if you want your curls to be shiny and damage-free.

If you want to try Beyonce’s curly hair routine, Curlsmith Transition Kit is a fab way to do so. It contains 4 products: Conditioning Wash, Double Cream Deep Quencher, Style Balm, and Style Fixer. Suitable for wavy, curly, and coily hair and has no nasty things inside.

#2 Taylor Swift & curly hair

Is Taylor Swift’s hair naturally curly? The answer is YES!

It’s rare to see Taylor Swift with straightened hair nowadays and I want to thank her for that. She showed the world that curly hair IS beautiful and you don’t have to straighten it every day to look pretty.

This should be easy as she once said that she never uses any styling products. So, just shampoo and conditioner should be enough. Taylor once said that the best hair advice she can give is not to overuse hair products. However, if you have type 2A soft waves I still think that you should use a mousse or a styling balm if you want your curls to last more than half a day.

Swift’s hair is more on the wavy side, thick and naturally blonde (what a stroke of luck, huh?). She said that she avoids chemicals in her hair care products. This is an extremely useful tip for every curly girl or boy.

People on Reddit also recommend following Curly Girl Method for those who want to see if their hair has the potential to be wavy or curly.

Taylor always talks about eating healthy food and swears that it helps her to have shiny hair and glowing skin so think about what’s in your plate, too. 

Taylor Swift’s curly hair routine includes gentle chemical-free shampoo, a daily conditioner, and a curl definer gel.

If you don’t want to buy lots of different products and prefer natural ingredients, Taylor Swift’s hair care routine is the one to follow.

Are there any actresses with curly hair?

Yes, there are! Selena Gomez, Meghan Markle (well, she is not only an actress, but she was also a duchess!), and Zendaya – there are only a few names. Read on to steal their hair care routine!

#3 Selena Gomez & secrets of her curly hair

Selena Gomez posted a picture of her naturally curly hair before launching the Rare Beauty line at Sephora and it went viral! She looked perfect with those voluminous waves, right?

Even though Selena prefers to wear her hair straight, from time to time she shows her natural hair texture. Want to replicate Selena’s hair care routine?

I collected the best tips, tricks, and basically everything I could find about her hair.

Selena Gomez uses a leave-in conditioner on a daily basis to keep her hair shiny and moisturized. Obviously, her hair is going through. That’s why she also likes hair masks and oils.

One of the hair care tips that she shared with her fans around the globe was to wash your hair less. In one interview, Selena also said that she washes her hair once in four days.

How to keep your hair normal between washes? Try different hairstyles! Messy buns, loose ponytails, and all that jazz. Selena loves that!

If you want to follow her hair care routine you might need moisturizing shampoo to keep those curls shiny, a moisturizing conditioner for extra hydration, and a deep conditioner to nourish your hair (once a week). Finally, use a leave-in conditioner and fix your waves with mousse or hair gel!

#4 Meghan Markle & her coily hair

Meghan Markle might not be the best example of embracing naturally curly hair as she used to have coils but those soft light waves beautiful that she wears now are beautiful, right?

She relies on keratin treatments but if you want it to last, you have to use shampoos, conditioners, and hair masks without sulfates or sodium.

Meghan doesn’t use many hair products, as her former stylist told the Allure. Her routine is pretty basic: good shampoo, protein hair mask, and a hair lotion to make her waves soft and shiny.

If you want to try Meghan’s simple but effective routine, try Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus line. These products would not work for waves so try it out only if you at least have type 3A curls.

#5 Zendaya & her curly hair routine

Zendaya is an icon and a perfect example that curls are awesome. She even shared a video about her hair care routine!

When Zendaya was little, she was uncomfortable with her curls but now world-known actress appreciates and understands her hair. She even Tweeted that she “hates flat irons, curly irons, all of them”. Can relate!

She is shampooing her hair every three days and uses a wide-tooth comb when her hair is still soaking wet. Her one special product is Miss Jessie’s Multicultural Curls which she applies evenly with her fingers. Zendaya is trying to be super gentle with her curls, therefore she is using a microfiber hair towel. Her drying process finishes with Devacurl Devadryer.  

As you can see, her routine works wonders!

Zendaya also shared a few tips with her fans around the globe: she sleeps on a satin pillowcase and wears her hair in a pineapple.

#6 Justin Timberlake & his curly hair in 2000s

Want to have curls like Justin Timberlake in the 2000s? You got it!

Don’t shampoo your hair too often, don’t use harsh alcohols and sulfates at it dries out your hair, air-dry your hair when you can, and use a jar of hair gel.

Justin does have naturally curly hair, it was not a perm! So why his hair is straight now, you might ask? Well, he’s probably getting a keratin treatment, just like Meghan Markle.

If you are a man and have curls, you can use the same routine as the celebrities mentioned above!
