1. Space Buns: Summer Hairstyles For Natural Hair

This is the perfect hairstyle for an old twist-out or braid-out that you do not have time to wash yet. Want to get some extra days out of your hairstyle or turn a bad hair day around? This simple style makes for a super cute yet unconventional look. You can do this hairstyle with medium to long hair and it should take you only a couple of minutes to achieve it!

2. Summer sleek Ponytail


This sleek pounytail is so versatile, that it could be a post on its own. Start off with a sleek base, that allows you to pull your hair up into a ponytail.

If you do not like using gel, spray some water on the perimeter of your hair, followed up by our Natural & Whipped Beauty Butter.

Brush and tie a scarf on your hair for 10 – 15 minutes.

Your hair will lay flat and soft without the gel effect. You can wear your ponytail as a high puff, twirl it around for a chignon effect or push the ponytail to the side for a side ponytail. Be creative!

3. Protective Style Cornrows

This style allows you to quickly tuck your hair away without spending too much time installing a protective style.

To start, simply part your hair in 4 – 6 parts and cornrow your hair down finishing off with a loose braid.

Once all your cornrows are completed, tuck away the ends into a soft low bun. And voilà! Your hair is protected and you look amazing!

For all our new naturals or short hair naturalistas, we know that styling short hair can be a little bit of a challenge.

 The frohawk is one of those that can make for a statement in and of itself and we are so here for it!
