My curls aren't in the 4 category but...

I'm really jealous because I'd attempt to rock this hairstyle:

The texture of the hair lends itself well to the voluminous structure. My 3a curls would just change the intended look too much if put up this way. This actually looks fairly effortless (mostly a lot of bobby pins) and the softness the frizzier tendrils adds is pretty.

Le sigh.

    if I brush my hair out and airdry it with no products I can achieve the same faux frizziness too(that was my signature elementary hairdo, without the elegance in the picture provided ofc) Maybe try brushing it out on the parts you want it to look frizzy, braid the curls you want it to be tighter? It looks really pretty though! I'm jealous now too. Also I have a cousin who has 3C hair and she did an updo once and it looked exactly the same, except she didnt brushed anything. So maybe there's still hope for you?

    And her face is just BEAUTIFUL

    That's a great idea! I'll give it a shot.

    I agree it's very pretty. I too think you can get the same look whether straighter or curlier or poufier, etc. if you braid the hair in small plaits and allow it to air dry then finger style or pick it out...
