1. Pull it back and pump up the volume

The style is fresh, funky and allows you to show off your pretty features.
2. Roll and clip
Nicole Kidman shows how cute and girly your curls can be when rolled in a loose knot and pinned the front. It is a great way to maintain the movement of your curls while keeping you away from the heat.

Thandie Newton's reverse bun is another fun way to style your curly hair this summer. Not only you won't feel the heat, you will also look pretty and edgy enough to catch the spotlight. Achieve this look by pulling your curls up into a “poof” in the front, securing with rubber bands and using bobby pins to keep the curls in place .
