More Hairstyles That I Love on Black Girls <3

More Hairstyles That I Love on Black Girls <3

My last myTake on black girl hairstyles has garnished a lot positive feedback, so I thought I would make a part two on nine more hairstyles that I like on us black girls. We have so many unique hairstyles and it takes a lot to cover them all, so I hope you enjoy this next installment of our beautiful hairstyles!

Note: This list includes natural and ethnic hairstyles. Some people were asking why I left out weave and straight hairstyles, and I left those out on purpose. While I love weaves and straightened hair, I wanted to embrace natural and ethnic hairstyles with these myTakes. Thank you! <3

Faux dreads

When you don’t have real dreads, faux dreads are an alternative. I love these, and I think they’re gorgeous. Unlike the Senegalese twists and box braids from my last list, these aren’t actually “braided”. They are “locked” into place like the real deal. They are also a good protective style for your real hair and look great with all kinds of accessories.

Twist outs

Another style that I absolutely LOVE, and it’s really simple to achieve. First, you twist your hair until your hair is completely enclosed in braids, then wrap it up and leave it overnight. When you wake up the next morning, your will have a full head of even curly curls! It’s a super cute look for natural hair and it looks great.

Kinky twists

These are a gorgeous variant of Senegalese twists and similar braiding styles. Unlike other braiding styles, these twists are usually wore shorter and the ends are curled. I think it's a super cute hairstyle and it is quite versatile.

Cornrows

Unlike the much similar Ghana braids, these are smaller and don’t use as much synthetic hair to create the style. Also, unlike their more glamorous counterpart, they are much more versatile and there’s a whole lot of other styles that you can create with these. I had these a couple of times when I was younger with beads, but I wasn’t really fond of them on me. However, these look great on other ladies.

Braided bun

This is what I was talking about what you can do with the Ghana braids and goddess braids. You can get them braided into a large bun. I think it's gorgeous and I love it on black ladies! It makes them look like royalty, especially with the larger braids.

Bantu knots

No, these are not called “Mini buns”, these are officially called Bantu knots and originate from the Bantu tribe in Africa. Today however, they are not really worn as a hairstyle. Instead they are used to get voluminous curls like twist outs. However, people do wear them as a style, and they can look good on certain black girls.

Faux hawk

Another natural hairstyle that I adore! I think this looks so cute with thick natural black hair, and you can achieve this look without cutting off your hair. You simply get a hair pin and pin up your hair into the look of a Mohawk, and viola, you get an instant Mohawk! It’s super cute and can spice up your hair if you are tired of wearing the same style over and over again.

Marley Twists

This look features thick, large braids, and it similar to Havana, Senegalese, and kinky twists, despite being a type of two-strand twists. What makes these different is the look of these and the type of fake hair that is used to achieve it. Marley hair is a type of curly hair is used in this hairstyle, and I must say, it really works on black chicks. It’s super gorgeous.

Micro braids

Micros, also called "tree braids", are yet another type of braiding style. They involve four-strand twists that are really tiny to achieve the illusion that there was no braiding involved. This style is really cute I must say, but I would never get it myself since this style tends to damage your hair.

And we come to the end of the mytake! I hope you enjoyed! In the future I will probably make more mytakes showcasing the different ways you can wear these styles! Thanks for reading! :)

      Hey but that means that you're allowed to handle dead bald eagles whereas a white guy like me has to call animal control to have it removed so it evens out

  • Kinda jelly of how many legit hairstyle choices you have. 🙋
