The Best Hairstyle Ideas for Curly Hair From the 2018 Red Carpets

Who says curls are unruly? Whether you've got loose ringlets, tight curls, or coils for days, texture is where it's at, and there are a myriad of ways to rock yours. Sure, it can seem like your curls can take on a life of their own, but that's just the beauty of them. You can take all those spirals and zig-zags, bursting forth in every direction, and create something super stunning. Just check the red carpets for some proof. This awards season, we've seen so many hairstyles that work perfectly for curls, be they sleek and pulled back into a low bun, flying free in a 'fro, or pushed to the side for an asymmetrical look with a generous helping of edge. If you've got an occasion coming up and don't know where to start, or you're just looking for a little inspo, we'd suggest taking a gander at some of these camera-ready curls, straight from the red carpet.

1.Storm Reid: Bantu Babe
The Wrinkle in Time beauty nailed the event's "Blackanda" theme with embellished Bantu knots that boasted gold accents throughout, complementing her earrings perfectly. If you're sick of wearing your hair down or out this summer (and who isn't in this heat?) this style is definitely one to try out.

2.Kerry Washington: Fabulous Frizz
If you've got curls, you know that frizz just comes as part of the package. While many of us choose to smooth it down with the help of some products, Washington embraced hers for an appearance at Lehman College on April 11. The actress rocked some extensions courtesy of her hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, pulled back in a half-up, half-down style, with some defined ringlets framing her forehead.

3.Viola Davis: Studio 54 Realness
We always love a good disco curl, and that's exactly what Viola Davis decided to serve on the 2018 Oscars red carpet. The slicked-down front of her hair lends some extra drama to the the loose curls blooming at the back of her head.

4.Janet Mock: Curls Galore
Hairstylist Kiyah Wright made sure Janet Mock's curls didn't come to play at the 2018 Oscars. No, ma'am, these spirals were ready to take center stage, divided by a center part down the middle, and placed to perfectly frame her face.

5.Lupita Nyong'o: Rwanda Forever
The Black Panther actress turned out to the 2018 Oscars rocking a coif inspired by traditional Rwandan Amasunzu hairstyles. Vernon François sculpted Nyong'o's gorgeous crown before adding gold thread through it for some added sparkle.

6.Betty Gabriel: Cascading Curls
The Get Out actress went with a classic half-up half-down style for the 2018 Oscars. The volume in the front frames her face, leaving loose curls to fall down her back.

7.Beyonce: Straight Backs
Nothing like a protective style to let your hair chill out every once in a while. Beyoncé hit the 2018 Grammys with a set of cornrows going straight back, pulled into a long ponytail.

8.Rihanna: Disco Diva
Hairstylist Yusef got inspired by Diana Ross and Donna Summer for Rihanna's super voluminous disco curls at the 2018 Grammy Awards.
