There’s so much that you can do with natural hair. You can where it up this way, twist it around that way, bun it up this way, & shake it out that way. But really….who has time for all of that? I know I don’t! That’s why I have 5 tried & true natural hair styles that I switch between to get me through the week. Now, don’t get me wrong. I will experiment every now & then, and try a new do just to mix things up. But there’s nothing like your go-to styles to get you through the day, especially when you’re running late for work. Can I get a witness?
If you’re a Naturalista just starting out, I recommend you experiment to find your 5 favorite hair styles that you can lean on. This will help the process of falling in love with your hair go a little smoother. In the beginning, it may take a few extra minutes to get ready in the morning. But once you’ve got these hairstyles down pack, getting ready will be a breeze. I’m not saying this will help you with all of your hair troubles, but it’s just one thing that has helped me in my hair journey.
So here we go! My “Top 5 Go-To Natural Hair Styles:”
1. The Twist Out
I fell in love with this hair style from day one of going natural. It will always be my go-to style for letting my curls run wild & free. If you’re new to natural, “Twist Out” means that you twist your hair in rows the night before, then untwist them the next morning to a beautiful natural look. Don’t forget to use the L.O.C. Method when you’re twisting for optimum curls!
2. Chunky Side Twists
This style will last me a good 3 days after I have styled it. I love it because it gives me a break from having to do my hair, it’s protective, & looks professional for work days.
