20 Celebrities Who Are Embracing Their Natural Curls

celebrities with curls

Between no-makeup makeup trends and celebrities sharing stripped down looks on social media, natural beauty is certainly having a moment. There’s nothing wrong with getting all dolled-up, of course, but there’s something refreshingly beautiful about letting our natural selves shine through. Tons of celebrities with curly hair have been joining the simplified beauty movement by showing off their natural texture, and we can’t get enough of it.

For the majority of these stars, we had no idea they even had natural curly hair. Margot Robbie, for example, recently stepped out with her natural curls while promoting Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, though she’s previously always opted for straightened hair or blowouts. Others like Selena Gomez, Lili Reinhart, and Chrissy Teigen have shared their gorgeous curls on Instagram.

Take a look at these 20 celebrities with curly hair who are embracing their natural texture.
