Trend To Try: Trending Tendrils

IF you thought that the nineties and early 2000s comebacks were limited to choker necklaces, crop tops and brown lipstick, you’d be wrong. Kendall Jenner has been on a mission to bring tendrils back (that is the strategically placed face-framing wisps to the sides). We’d say she has succeeded, with tons of celebs following suit. And there’s not a bad matric farewell dress in sight! When taking this style for a test drive, skip the ringlets. These locks should be a little softer, smoother and contain a little less hairspray. Here’s all the celebrity inspiration you need to recreate the style.

We name Kendall Jenner as queen of the tendrils!


We would be lying if we said we hadn’t worn Cardi B‘s exact hairstyle to our own farewell back in the day.

Bella Thorne‘s delicate curls gracefully fall from her ‘do for a more mature take on the tendril trend.

We take back what we said about ringlets. But on the other hand, Rihanna just makes everything work!

Count on Zendaya to bring a slightly edgier take to the trend: a high top knot and several layered, choppy tendrils hanging around her temples.

Two face-framing sections of hair were left down to complete Ciara‘s voluminous updo.

If we could leave the house with Khloe Kardashian’s perfect bun we’d be in heaven!

Janelle Monae works wonders with her natural texture in an elaborate (did you expect anything less?) upstyle.

Olivia Culpo wore a classic example of tendrils with her low ponytail and long, curly strands.

Bella Hadid proves that you don’t need a curling tong to wear tendrils.

Another prime example of soft tendrils comes from Margot Robbie, who sported her golden locks in a pinned updo.
