You can change the color or style using the Shape Styles options on the Format tab to make the curved arrow fit with the design of your slide. They’re easy to change as many times as you want.

Use the Format > Shape Styles options to change the look of your PowerPoint curved arrow.

Finally, you can always return to the Insert > Shapes menu and choose the curved arrow coming from a different direction. As an example, choose this left curved arrow for an effect from the opposite direction. Use these to help objects on the slide relate.

These curved arrows are a really nice effect, when you want to tie together objects on the slide and show the viewer how different things are related to one another.
