    Curly girls, we feel ya: we know that many of you are in love with your natural texture (as you should be!), but often feel stumped when it comes to styling your gorgeous coils for a special occasion. It can be challenging to find a way to mix up your look in way that showcases, rather than masks, your natural locks — and, sadly, it can be hard to find celeb style inspiration, as stars often shy away from flaunting their natural curls on the red carpet.

    Well, ladies, we've got you. We searched high and low for the best festive styles that will make the most of your natural texture, whether you have the finest waves or a head full of tight curls. We then reached out to Dickey, stylist extraordinaire and one of the founders of Hair Rules (a salon and product line created to serve all hair textures), to tell us exactly how to re-create each look at home. Click through to see all of the sexy, unique styles — we'd bet that no matter what your curl type, one of these looks will look seriously incredible on you on New Year's.

How Bad Is Expired Makeup Really?

When was the last time you got an infection from read

It's Happening: Steven Alan X Dr. Scholl's

Now that “ugly,” comfort-first shoes are the new normal (or, rather, the new normcore), we’ve been reintroduced to brands that haven't been in our wardrobe rotation for some time. While Birkenstocks and Tevas deserve plenty of cred, one of our favorite shops is making damn sure we don’t forget about one of the read
