1. Senegalese twists / Box braids
I love getting Box braids and Senegalese twists. This is a perfect "resting" hairstyle because you can give your natural hair a break. This can be kept in anywhere from 1-3 months. This hair style looks so beautiful and is low maintenance because it requires almost absolutely no care to keep it that way.
Who says the above photos were the only look you can do with this hairstyle?
You can flip your hair into a pony tail, or a classy/elegant updo if you want to play with your look a little
2. Twist out
You can braid your hair in as many braids as you want. The longer you leave the braids in, the curlier your hair will be when you loose it out. I usually take the braids out after a few days. You can't go wrong with this hairstyle! I have always been a fan of curly hair because it looks fun!
3. Corn row
I love this hairstyle because it allows me to show off my pretty delicate features. It's a change from the hair usually bouncing on my shoulders or in my face. Not to mention...this type of hairstyle makes your head feel smaller. You'll know what I am talking about if you're an hair extension wearer or naturally have full and big hair. You can put just about any hat on your head without having to fear that it may be too small due to your hairstyle.
Typically, this hairstyle lasts me 3 weeks to 1 month because it starts to frizz out.
And well, I'm a young lady that likes to look tidy.
4. Dreadlock updo
I don't have dreads but I love when I see people having their long locks up in a updo. It looks so elegant and beautiful. These of course, aren't the only ones! I generally think they look great if you know what you're doing with your hair, or go to a hair stylist that can master that art.
5. Kinky twists
By now you should know me, I am a fan of curly and fun! You can use your own hair to achieve this look, or get extensions placed in. This hairstyle looks so natural and tends to frame the face well in my opinion.
6. Hair weave
Some people like to get their weave wavy, straight, or curly.
I think they all look nice.
Whichever texture you choose to get find out on how to manage it. The way I take care of the straight hair would be totally different than the way I care for the curly or wavy.
When buying hair packs, I personally like to stay away from the cheap weave hair packs. Why? They make huge claims but do the opposite. 100% human hair? Yeah right!
They usually tend to shed the most or tangle. If you want to walk around like a dog that's shedding fur then be my guest to invest in that $30 pack.
The hair weave can be costly if you want quality, but it's worth it in my opinion.
Some people rewash and reuse their weave, so they definitely get their money's worth. For a fun look, I like to dye the tips honeybrown/red or buy a weave with streaks already in it.
This is probably one of the most simplest hairstyles I have put up. It's your hair and requires no hair installment. Just get a afro pick and comb your hair out. As people with curly hair, you probably experience hair shrinkage from time to time. If you can, further stretch your hair by blowing it out.
If that's not the look you're going for, like the lady's above photo you can put in certain hair products to further define/enhance your tightly coiled hair. Your hair will shrink a bit but it will still look nice.This adds to the spice in the look.
I love my thick, long flowing hair but I can't help but love when some women get their hair in a mohawk.
I say some, because whether you can pull this look off or not depends on your face structure. You have to take this into account especially when going with a hairstyle that creates a lot of edge. Of course, there's a large amount of mohawk hairstyles to choose from. These are just the few that I like.
The list can go on and on....
I'm a woman that constantly has a new look every few months.
There's nothing like taking risks with your hair and trying new things!
