Styles for Natural Hair

natural hairstyles

Natural hair can do so many things. It has a versatile texture and structure that makes it possible to style in so many different ways. Whether you’re looking for a natural style to wear to work or a more “out there” style for a night out, we have plenty of recommendations. The styles you can do with your natural hair are endless, but here are a few of Parker Trichology’s favorites. 

Wash-and-Go

Although not truly possible to wash your hair and go, this style is well worth the work it takes to make it look like you just walked out the front door after a quick wash. It’s perfect for people who are new to natural hair and learning the possibilities of styling natural hair. 

Bantu Knots

Bantu knots are a traditional African hairstyle perfect for any occasion. They are not truly knots, just very tightly wrapped buns. They’re a versatile style as well. You can wear them as buns or do a Bantu knot-out which creates bouncy curls. 

Pineapple

If you don’t have time to mess with your hair, simply throwing your curls up into a pineapple ponytail is the way to go. The pineapple ponytail is a simple way to show off your curls and your face. You can even do this hairstyle at night to protect your curls, but be sure to use a silk or satin bonnet as well to protect that curly shape. 

Braid-Out

With your hair being naturally curly or coily, it’s prone to shrinkage, leading to breakage or tangles. Using heat to stretch out your hair will only make it more susceptible to damage. That’s why the braid-out is an excellent option. It’s heatless and allows your hair to stretch out a little and be more protected from harm. 

Micro Braids

Micro braids are a prevalent style for natural hair. They might take a long time to install, but the flexibility and softness are well worth it. The braids can be molded into other styles as well, making micro braids extremely versatile. A laid-back look works just as well, though. 

Whether you’re looking for drama or class, your natural hair can do so many things! So don’t stress about what to do. Any of these looks are perfect for several occasions, and there are plenty more styles out there.
