No matter what hair type you have-long, medium, short, straight, wavy, or curly-it can be easy to get stuck in a hairstyling rut. If you're like me, then that means you default to wearing your hairВ as is. It can't even be classified as a style. Sometimes, in the worst of it, I'll wake up, run a brush through my strands, and head out the door. But where's the fun in that? There's simply too much inspiration out there. You just have to find it, which is probably why "short curly hairstyles" is a query that's Googled over 60,000 times per month. Google it yourself and you'll see thousands of images pop up, which feels a little overwhelming. That's why we went through the Instagram pages of celebrities and expert hairstylists to source the 15 best short curly hairstyles.

Let's start with Kerry Washington's curly updo she wore to the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. It was all thanks to her go-to hairstylist, Takisha Sturdivant-Drew, who outlined the steps she took to achieve the style in an Instagram post: "I shampooed her hair before applying a deep conditioning mask.В While the conditioner was in I diffused her hair all around to give it fullness and most of all to keep the shine. I twisted her hair into a bun in the back and secured it with large & small pins."В


As far as we're concerned, Leona Lewis has mastered the art of casual curly hairstyling. We like her messy side bun that's framed with short curled pieces on either side of her forehead. It's low-key, summery, and perfectly effortless. Seriously, all it takes is a single hair elastic.


Here's another style worn by Leona Lewis. WhileВ space buns might be old news when it comes to music festivals, we're still digging the easy-to-style look for breezy summer days. Simply part your curls down the middle and tie up each side into a symmetrical bun.В


Christine SilvermanВ is an expert colorist and stylist atВ Ramirez Tran Salon in Los Angeles.В Here she is, pictured with textured curls and baby bangs. We've been obsessed with the style ever sinceВ Bella HadidВ andВ Olivia CulpoВ appeared with their own sets of tiny fringe in 2017 and 2016, respectively.В


Nikki LeeВ is an expert hairstylist and co-owner ofВ Nine Zero One Salon in Los Angeles. She's responsible for this classically gorgeous curled bob on Emma Roberts. We don't think you can ever go wrong when combining barrel curls and a deep side part. The effect is soft and refined and clearly worthy of Hollywood celeb.

Zendaya appeared on the red carpet sporting glamorously shiny curls that were waved back into a low bun at the nape of her neck. We think that this Old Hollywood look is the ultimate inspiration forВ summertime weddings. Just make sure you have some shine serum on hand.


Amandla Stenberg shows us how to incorporate braids into a short hair look by sporting these symmetrical twists. They go back to the crown of their head before puffing out in their natural texture. We're in love (that ruby red lip color doesn't hurt either).В


If you have short and curly hair, Rita Ora provesВ curtain bangs can still work for you. She posted this selfie to her Instagram. In it, we can see how she tied her lob-length hair back into a high ponytail but not before leaving a few face-framing pieces outВ in front.В

Leave it to actress Thandie Newton to display the power of a hair accessory. Her hair's windswept texture and low bun are made more glamorous by the diamond-encrusted star pins placed on one side of her head.В

Actress Ruth Negga is another who regularly wears her hair in its natural texture. Here, her hair is parted way off to one side where it's then slicked back behind one ear. On the other side, however, it's free to loop around in a relaxed curl pattern.В


Tia and Tamera Mowry are great resources for hair inspiration. Their Instagram feeds are flooded with product recommendations and curly-haired selfies, like this one from Tamera. Start with a center part, and then twist the hair back on either side for a chic half-up-half-down look.


Now we have some hair inspo from Tia. She pins her hair up into a faux-hawk, or, as she puts it, a "frohawk." It accentuates her hair's natural springy texture.


Okay, one last Mowry sister hairstyle (there are too many good ones for us not to include at least three). Tia posted this selfie to her Instagram wearing her hair in the most perfect low ponytail of all time. Keeping a few short pieces out at front makes it breezy and casual.В

Who remembers when Kaley Cuoco had short hair? Who remembers when Kaley Cuoco had short pink hair?В В Her layered bob gives off an edgy vibe thanks to a deep side part and a tousled texture.В

Model Jasmine Sanders was spotted in Paris wearing her curls in a romantic updo that contrasted her edgy, ink-lined eyes. The key to this look is keeping the hair loose and flexible-not stiff.
