Even some women who are diehard flat iron addicts take a break from heat-styling this season. Who can blame them?
In many climates, the humidity makes it all but impossible for pressed hair to get through a day without puffing back up. It's one thing to purposely style an Afro -- it's another thing entirely to have all your hard work creating a straight style morph into a 'fro on its own. Talk about an exercise in frustration!
So, if you're ready to put your flat iron away for a while and try something different, check out this curly hair gallery, featuring some of our favorite big-haired celebs -- Tamara Tunie, Sophie Okonedo, Jill Scott (pictured) and Laura Izibor, to name just a few.
Hair that's completely free of chemical straighteners can achieve these looks with ease, but even women with texturizers or "texlaxers" can get good results.
