In Praise Of Women With Curly Hair

For all the ladies (and men) out there who've wished they could get rid of their curly hair, this post is for you!

We're here to show you that curly hair is beautiful, just like the people who have it. Case in point: The celeb ladies pictured below—from tightly wound curls to looser, longer styles, and even a few afros, these ladies are proof that no matter what type of curls you've got on your head, you've just got to make 'em your own.

And trust us, there are plenty of straight-haired gals out there who'd do anything for a little texture in their hair. (But, as the saying goes, "You always want what you can't have.")

Just continue scrolling for all the curly hair inspiration you need!
