    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.
