Crimped hair is here again! Check these 18 awesome ideas out and refresh your style right now with a cool new hairstyle!
Yes, crimped hairstyles were here 30 years ago. And yes, crimped hair is trending again — just like many other 1980s trends, crimped haircuts have made a comeback. Why?
Because there are lots of interesting zigzag hairstyles for crimped hair. No, basically, there are dozens of reasons, but the main thing you have to know is: crimping hair is great. And here we’ll show you, why.
But at first, we’ll talk about the ways to crimp hair. The chances are you will not go to your hairdresser in order to do it, so let’s see how to do it at home.
How To Crimp Your Hair?
If you’ve already bought a tool, like a curling/crimping iron, you know how it should be done. You just use the tool (like in the first photo) and get the result. If you already have a straightener, the things are quite simple, too.
More specifically, you’ll have to divide the bottom part of hair into sections and to make braids from these sections. Then you’ll have to run the straightener over the braids, cool them down, undo the braids, use hairspray and do the same stuff for the top part of your hair. That’s all (but don’t forget about heat protection).
However, we have something else to say here. Thus, we recommend you to try small braids instead of big ones. The thing is, the tightness of the crimp depends on the size of the braids — so make them smaller!
P.S. If you wanna know how to crimp hair without a crimper, just take a look at the third photo.
That Crimped Hair Trend From The 80s
Yes, the first hairstyle definitely has that 80s flair. This medium length crimped hair with side fringe is just perfect.
As for the second and the third haircuts, well, they are very interesting, too. These two are ponytails — they both have crimped ends, they both add volume, but the third one is a little more voluminous. The last ponytail looks impressive with its full fringe and a bun!
Amazing Modern Crimped Wavy Hair Styles
We won’t talk much here, but you definitely have to pay attention to these three modern crimped hairstyles. They are trendy and stylish, and they look quite unusual, so you can’t ignore them!
What about a crimped bob? Yes, bob hairstyles are everywhere nowadays, and they can be crimped, too! Look at the first picture — this short crimped bob looks awesome with a side swept fringe!
The second hairstyle is perfect for those who need some crimped curls, while the third one is the the simple ponytail with straight top and crimped ends. If you have long hair, this stylish hairdo is for you!
Some Great Crimped Hairstyles For Your Long Hair
We highly recommend you to look at the very first photo here. It looks… unexpected, right?
It’s a long, voluminous haircut with long crimped locks and braided layers. This perfect hairdo with a center braid is definitely not from the 80s, it’s from beginning of the 2000s, but does it really matter?
The second and the third haircuts are extremely cool, too! The second one is perfect for the fans of crimped hair with braids: it’s a mix of two braids (french&bobble), and this mix is perfect for all creative women with long hair. The third hairdo is a little bit more classic — it’s a center-parted long crimped cut, and the combination of crimps and dark black color is just fantastic.
Interesting Ideas Of Crimped Hairstyles For Black Hair
Here we’ll show you an amazing wavy hairstyle. These fantastic crimped layers will work great for long black hair… but even if you have medium hair, it’s not a problem at all.
We can’t say much about the second haircut (you just have to look at it). It’s a great shoulder-length braided hairstyle with a long side fringe, and it looks gorgeous. Take your hair crimper and try it!
The last hairstyle would work perfect for both black, brown and other dark shades. It’s a crimped ponytail, and you’ll have to crimp that ponytail part only, so it’s quite a fast haircut.
Crimping Short Hair Is Cool
A cute crimped short hairstyle with a braid, a short braided haircut with a tight knot, a classic crimped top knot. These three haircuts are quite quick, they are not too sophisticated, they are just really good. Try at least one of them and we guarantee that you’ll love it!
Interesting Male Crimp Hair Styles
We were surprised, too. It appears that men can wear crimp hairstyles, too — and what’s more, these hairstyles look great on them!
Yes, it’s all about Zac Efron. His crimped hairstyle is both gorgeous and masculine — but we are afraid that to wear one, you have to look like Zac. It may be a problem.
However, you can see the guys with the braided mohawks in the first photo, and they are great, too. Especially if you want something radical! The second picture shows another great male crimped hair style which looks very masculine.
