Are you bored to death of sporting the same look every day? Do you feel like adding a little variety to your look-book?
If so, we get you!
Afro-textured hair is awesome! But sometimes, the humongous crop of hair on your head can seem like a curse you didn’t ask for. On days like this, everyone wishes they could make their curls more manageable!
Here are five of the most iconic looks you can create with your gorgeous curly hair.
The Uber Chic Afro Bun
Back in the day, many black women—including Angela Davis—reclaimed Afrocentric beauty standards by maintaining afros, especially during the Black Power Movement. Since then, the afro has been sported proudly by many women and has developed several variations.
One such variation is the afro bun. To create this style, simply scoop up your natural afro, and tie it at the top of your head. And voila!
Classy Honey Blonde Curls
One of the most popular people to boast this look was the Queen of Pop, Whitney Houston herself! The honey blonde curls look features grown out natural hair, with just a splash of honey blonde to bring out a sun-kissed glow.
To create this look, apply product to your hair right when you step out of the shower. While it’s still wet, squish away any excess water with your hands.
Next, plop your hair on a microfiber towel and wrap them up for a few minutes. Once you’re sure that your hair isn’t dripping anymore, take off the towel and let it dry.
Ultra Modern Braided Glory
Braids and micro-braids have dominated ethnic hair culture for ages due to the manageability and beauty they bring to the dressing table. Imagine not having to spend an hour in front of the mirror every morning trying to get your hair to behave itself.
The best thing about braids is that there is no particular hair type that you need to have to try them. Excellent for keeping static away from your hair in winter, braids can be made on any hair type.
Dreadlocks are one of the most popular styles for ethnic hair today—with famous celebrities like Zendaya, Alicia Keys, and Wiz Khalifa rocking them with confidence.
However dreadlocks aren’t just a trend—along with looking super chic, they offer several unique benefits, including promoting healthy hair growth, being affordable, highly manageable and easy to create.
Shaggy Natural Curls
A cult favorite, shaggy curls are the simplest to create and easiest to mold into different looks and variations. The shaggy curls look is often used as a base to create another style, but can definitely—and is often—worn as is, for a statement look.
To create your shaggy-do, simply wet your hair and run your styling product through it, plop it on a microfiber towel and let it sit for a few minutes before drying it. It is advised to use a professional hair drying tool to dry your hair to create the full effect of the look.
Professional hair tools that are specifically designed to style and dry curly hair, like the MC Professional Hot-N-Happy Hair Tools with Secure Combs, can also help you maintain your curls without damaging them!
