    Despite the easy volume and natural va-va-voom drama, curly-haired girls often complain that they're left out when it comes to styling ideas. And, while stuffing curls into a bun or choke-holding them into a tight braid is a no-brainer, there are some stunning plaits that make curls more manageable (while still letting them bounce and breathe). To prove it, we enlisted the help of hair guru Bethany Brill to come up with four genius braided 'dos to play up all that beautiful texture.

    “Sometimes, tight braids can make straight-haired girls look like they have no hair, but with curls, all the texture helps pump up the braid, making it look full and voluminous,” says Brill. Not that Yasmin Daguilh, our model for this story, needs any convincing. “I’ve had my hair straightened before, but it wasn’t for me. My curly hair makes me stand out,” she says. If you, too, are ready to let your ringlets get all the fanfare they so rightly deserve, this tutorial will have you braiding your way to hair envy in no time.
