All Natural: Yara Shahidi’s Rounded Shape

The key to this style: Getting a regular trim every six to eight weeks. When you have a very specific style with a very specific shape (hello, bangs), you want to maintain it and keep things fresh.

Corkscrew Curls: Julia Garner’s Short Layers

Touchably soft corkscrew curls that are frizz-free, defined and structured? Basically what dreams are made of. Tell your stylist to incorporate face-framing ringlets to your haircut for extra pizzazz.

All Natural: Taraji P. Henson’s Sculpted Pixie

Henson’s tapered natural haircut is the perfect way to show off her awesome bone structure. To add dimension to your cut, opt for a lighter color on top.

Bouncy Waves: Kate Middleton’s Shoulder-Length Style

No one does a barrel curl quite like Kate. If your curls have lots of body, try a soft lob like the Princess. And if your face shape happens to be round (also like Middleton’s), give it a part down the middle. This adds more volume to the sides of your face and distracts from the shape instead of highlighting it.

An afro that’s the definition of hair goals. If you like your hair a bit longer like Ellis Ross, beware of shrinkage—curly hair should be cut dry to combat any snaufs. To add volume and help your ringlets last all day, check out this video.

Tousled Waves: Kendall Jenner’s Lob

Jenner’s wavy bob is über glam but also cool enough to be worn to the movies on a Wednesday night (if you’re into that type of thing). Too scared to make the chop? Try a faux lob first by twisting and pinning your hair underneath your curls.

Tight Spirals: Ilana Glazer’s Curly Shag

Fact: You can instantly elevate your cut by adding a curly bang. The idea here is controlled chaos. It works best if you have a slightly looser curl, but as long as you heavy up on the frizz-fighting products, you can sport a more textured style, too.

Extensions: Rihanna’s Voluminous Layers

Sometimes you’ve got to fake it, and mermaids have nothing on Rihanna’s super long, sultry waves. Let your unruly curls shine with plenty of long layers. Touch up random pieces with a curling iron and be on your way.
