Hairstyles for Natural Hair


We’ve subjected our hair to weaves, braids and all kinds of extensions. Let’s give our manes a break for a change and keep it natural in these hairstyles.

1. “ Frohawk”

To achieve this edgy and cool look, tuck in your hair on each side with pins to move the volume to the middle.

2. “High Bun”

Simply neat and elegant. Tame the mane by tying it up in a knot and show off your beautiful face.

3. “Braid up”

Traditional, French or old world style – Plaits are a symbol of femininity.

4. “Pompadour”

There’s just something about a pompadour that oozes old Hollywood glam. Keep it classy just like Janelle Monae!

5. “Wrap it up”

Too embarrassed to show your unwashed hair? Why not keep it tidy and stylish by wrapping it in your favourite scarf.

6. “Afro”

It’s easier than saying your ABCs. Run your fingers through your hair and leave it loose!

7. “Corporate Curls”

Blow your hair straight, then apply set foam to each piece of hair that you’ll wrap around a roller curl. After some time, release it and finger comb it into place.
