Simple Natural Hairstyles for Beginners!

Low or High Bun

The bun is a great option for natural hair because it can be installed in a matter of minutes, it protects your ends from damage and the environment, and it’s a classy look that never gets old. This style works on medium length hair or longer. 

Fauxhawk

  • This style is unbelievably cute, and you’ll be shocked at how easy it is. All you’ll need is a few pins! For the specific look in this tutorial you’ll need long hair, but the same concept can be accomplished with much shorter hair

High Puff

Tried and true, the high puff is a simple but elegant style that works well on all hair lengths and all curly hair textures. Here are two tutorials: one for short hair, and one for longer hair.

. Classic Afro

This is a stunning style also looks great on any hair length. Give this easy tutorial a try!

. Twist-out

The twist-out will NEVER go out of style. It’s timeless. It’s gorgeous. It’s classy. It’s fun. It works for any occasion. It’s versatile (check out these styles that start with a twist-out!) Do yourself a favor and master the twist-out, because it’s worth it.

. Wash N’ Go

Ah, the elusive wash n’ go… While it’s never as simple as just washing and going, this style is relatively simple to pull off. 

. Finger Coils

Finger coils make our list of easy natural hairstyles because they are simple to install. However, be warned- this style does take a LONG time to install. Find a friend (or a couple) to help you out if your arms are getting tired. This style works on any hair length.

Two strand twist

Two-strand twists are a versatile hairstyle that can work on either short or long hair. The basic two-strand twists can be used as a base hairstyle for many different variations so that each hairdresser can give an individualized look. Children can also benefit from this easy-to-keep hairstyle since it can be dressed up with ribbons or beads. Follow the steps below to learn how to do two-strand twists with a professional look that can be another added hairstyle choice for your hair care routine

Bantuknots are a cute, flirty style traditionally sported by African woman of certain cultural groups and some women of African descent. However, these knots work well with just about all hair types. They are not actually knots! Instead, they are small, coiled buns secured against the side of the head

Flat twist

Flat twists for natural hair require a lot of patience and practice to ensure it comes out smooth and has a firm hold. When twisting, start at the hairline and split the sectioned out hair into two parts. Now, wrap the two parts around each other, the same way you would when doing regular two-strand twists. Wrap them continuously with enough tension to give it a strong hold but not too much so as not to cause any pain or breakage. As you twist backwards, use your fingers to split your row of hair and feed it into the routine
