30 Hairstyles For Short, Natural Hair

01of 30

Blonde Box Braid Bob

Box braids always make a statement. And that includes bob-length ones. We’re in love with the bright blonde box braids Amandla Stenberg wore at the 2020 Oscars.

02of 30

Asymmetrical Pixie

Short hair looks its most fabulous when it has a distinct cut. Just take Gabrielle Union’s gorgeous asymmetrical pixie hair cut from the 2019 Vanity Fair Oscar Party as an example. It was equal parts edgy and glam.

To replicate Union’s style, Rabiu advises detangling your natural hair, sectioning it and using a high-power blow dryer on a medium setting. Once that’s all done, you can follow up with a heat protectant and sealant before flat ironing and finish with an oil.

03of 30

Messy Wired Bun

If you like your natural hair but you don’t necessarily want it in your face, you might want to throw your tresses up into a messy bun. We adore the style Janelle Monáe wore and those loose tendrils that framed her face. And of course, we can’t forget to mention the eye-catching gold wire she threaded into her bun!

04of 30

Braided Fauxhawk

Issa Rae loves experimenting with her natural hair and you should too. The braided fauxhawk she wore at the 2017 Golden Globes should absolutely be added to your “try-next” hairstyle list.

05of 30

Wavy Middle Part Bob

If you’re looking for a natural hairstyle that is a little beachy but still fitting for a formal occasion, you should go for this wavy bob as worn by Queen Bey herself. The middle part evens out the chunky waves beautifully.

06of 30

Slicked Down Pixie

Zoe Kravitz is living proof that short cropped styles can still be sultry. All you need is a rattail comb and your favorite pomade and you can slick down those tresses into a swooping pixie shape.

07of 30

Natural Victory Rolls

Lupita Nyong’o is simply the queen of natural hair in Hollywood. And she’s not afraid to experiment with her coily type 4 tresses. For example, the retro “Victory Rolls” she sported at the 2020 SAG Awards is something we never knew we needed!

08of 30

High Pony

Having short natural hair doesn’t mean you can’t go back to basics. Just take a look at Logan Browning with her ultra-high ponytail. If your hair is short enough, it’ll resemble a topknot with its perfect puff.

09of 30

Natural Finger Waves

A lot of naturals with short pixie cuts opt for smoothing down their tresses with a heat tool, but you don’t need to if that’s not your jam. Alexandra Shipp’s adorable finger waves are an excellent example of what you can achieve sans heat.

10of 30

Dip Dye End

If you’re the type who yearns for pops of color, you can always try a dip dye ombre for your ends. For temporary color, you can buy a jar of Hair Paint Wax, or if you’re willing to commit, you can buy the hair dye of your choice. Regardless of which option you go for in the end, we’re sure you’ll look as amazing as Tyra Banks when she had her dip dye pink waves.

11of 30

Tapered Cut

Do you want really short natural hair, but you don’t want to commit to a full buzz cut? Don’t worry, you can try a tapered cut like Samira Wiley. It’s a great way to get the best of both worlds!

“Everyone looks great with a tapered afro and it’s easier to maintain And style. This goes for all wavy, kinky, curly hair textures,” Rabiu says.

12of 30

Fulani Braids

If braids are the way you want to go, you should totally take a page out of RiRi’s stylebook and get some Fulani braids. If you’re not familiar, they’re half cornrow half box braid and are 100 percent stunning!

13of 30

Curly Pineapple

Pineapples are a part of the natural hair bible. No exceptions! Just ask Kerry Washington and her defined curly pineapple from the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

14of 30

Curly Wash-and-Go Fringe

Curls are a great option for short tresses because the texture itself really adds a pop of noticeable dimension and volume. This is especially true if you’re open to having a curly fringe (AKA the British word for bangs). Yara Shahidi wore a stunning curly wash-and-go in this style at the 2018 MTV Movie and TV Awards.

Rabiu’s expert tip for this look? It’s simple, “Water is your best friend for styling.”

15of 30

Faux Pompadour

If you’re edgy and you know it, why not show it with a cropped and slicked-back do? Jurnee Smollet-Bell certainly did during the “Birds of Prey” premiere. We love the height she added to her hair when she swept it back into a faux pompadour. The stray pieces she left out were another nice touch.

16of 30

Curly Shag

Sure, Halle Berry is known for her short tresses, but we’re a fan of the look she wore the 89th Annual Academy Awards. It was a few inches longer than usual, and it really added to her gorgeous curly do – which was cut into a bold shag. Her balayage ends brought out the overall dimension and shape. 

17of 30

Halo Updo

If there’s ever a day when you want to look like an ethereal princess, this halo-style updo is the way to go. Gugu Mbatha-Raw sported a simple headband with hers and we think you can totally rock the do and lowkey accessory yourself. It’s effortlessly elegant.

18of 30

Half-Up-Half-Down Waves

At times, deciding on whether you have your hair up or down can be one of the most difficult choices you have to make. We’re sure Anna Diop related to this struggle when she attended the 2019 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Awards, but she easily remedied that situation by going for a half-up-half-down number. Those sleek waves she paired with it were simply stunning!

19of 30

Statement Side Pony

The side ponytail is not reserved for high schoolers. Tessa Thompson proved this point with her ultra-sophisticated side pony at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. We love the volume she added to her asymmetrical side-part to create and overall balanced look.

20of 30

Retro Hair Flip

Having short hair gives you an opportunity to play with cuts and styles. And this includes the iconic gravity-defying hair flip of the 1960s. Ashley Blaine Featherson wore this retro style when she attended the 2018 Essence Black Women In Hollywood Oscars Luncheon. Even better, she threw in a few layers for added dimension!

21of 30

Blonde Pixie

There’s just something about a blonde pixie hair cut that seems so universal. Nearly every woman in Hollywood has sported one at some point, from Eva Marcille and Beyoncé to Mary J. Blige and more. But, this time, we’re focused on Meagan Good’s wispy cropped tresses. Don’t you just love?

22of 30

Blunt Bob with Choppy Bangs

Just when you thought you’d be all bobbed out, Zendaya shows up with a contrasting chin-length, blunt cut and choppy bangs. This sleek look is a beautiful option for those days when you want a break from curl maintenance.

23of 30

Sideswept Blowout

Do you like the look of blowouts but you don’t want your hair to be flat? No problem, you can try a voluminous sideswept style like Ella Balinska. Don’t forget to tease those roots to get that gorgeous front swoop.

24of 30

Purple Topknot

You can mix up classic styles with contemporary trends for a unique aesthetic. Justine Skye did just that when she attended the 2018 Harper's BAZAAR ICONS Party with her iconic purple locks wrapped up in a prim and proper topknot. If purple isn’t your jam, feel free to choose the color you love instead.

25of 30

Asymmetrical Updo

We absolutely love a good updo, and Teyonah Parris wore one of the best ones we’ve seen on a red carpet. Her side-parted twist out had just the right amount of volume in the front to create a fabulous asymmetrical fringe while the rest was tucked away into a lovely low bun. One word: flawless!

“For your best result, twist outs should be done on dry stretched hair,” Rabiu shares as her secret twist out tip. “The results will be fantastic.”

26of 30

Cornrows

Cornrows are a fantastic option for short natural hair, so long as your hair offers a few inches for braiding, of course. We’re fond of the very symmetrical cornrows Winnie Harlow wore to the 2019 GQ Men Of The Year Awards. Six braids were all she needed to polish off her look.

27of 30

Messy Updo

As the daughter of the legendary Diana Ross, it would be a crime for Tracee Ellis Ross to not be a natural hair icon in her own right. Even better, she doesn’t have to be flashy to look stunning. Her loose curly strands were the center of attention of her low messy updo at the 2020 Vanity Fair Oscar Party.

28of 30

Crown-Like Braids

If you like to play around with shapes, chunky braids are a great option. Alicia Keys is a great example with her 2019 Harper’s Bazaar Icons Party hairstyle, which was adorned with braids and statement chains. It was so glam!

29of 30

Side-Parted Wash-and-Go

Viola Davis is a pro when it comes to donning her short natural type 4 hair on the red carpet. We love the side-parted and voluminous wash-and-go she wore to the 2019 EE British Academy Film Awards.

30of 30

Tapered Rose Gold

Jada Pinkett Smith loves her tapered cuts and we’re sure you will too. And how could you truly resist when it’s paired with such a lovely rose gold hue?

The Most Inspiring Natural Short Hairstyles

Check out the ideas below.

#1: Flat-Twist with Twist Out

A twist-out is an easy natural hairstyle for short hair that African-American women can use to achieve full curls sans heat. It’s a popular protective style among the “naturalistas”. The style is easy to maintain, it can be slept on without messing up the curl pattern. This look combines a flat twist detail in the front to further protect the edges, which are the most prone to breakage.

#2: Half Shaved Natural Hairstyle

If you are blessed with curly hair and seek a low-maintenance hairstyle, try one of these short natural hairstyles for black women. The sharp lines of the razored sides and triangular sideburns are tomboyish and pair well with poofy curls on top, giving you extra height just where you want it.

#3: Cute Natural Tapered Cut

For those trying to figure out new and trendy ways to style short natural hair, go for a tapered cut with trimmed sides, long bangs, and a lot of loose, curly tendrils piled high on the top of the head. Such a hairstyle looks best when you let the curls have a little bit of frizz, so don´t overuse any gels or hair creams.

#4: Side-Parted Short Curly Natural Hairstyle

Modern and trendy, this wild afro hairstyle makes the most of your naturally kinky tendrils. The deep side part with laid edges sets off the mass of curls on top, and the copper-tinted ends add even more depth to the individual ringlets.

#5: Asymmetrical Side-Swept Afro

Short, natural haircuts can be styled as creatively as longer hair. The side braids that are directed upwards and adorned with golden cuffs give this short hair an extra air of elegance.

#6: Flat Twists Updo for Very Short Hair

If you need a quick and easy protective style for your black, natural curls, try an updo with flat twists running towards the crown of your head where you can add some extensions if you want. It’s an elegant updo that works great for women with fine or thinning hair.

#7: Short Curls with Side Bantu Knots

Long bangs that fall over the eyes are a great way to show off your twist out curls. The cute Bantu knots are a popular option for women seeking natural African American hairstyles that pay homage to the past. The loose, curly ringlets can be worn in a Mohawk style as shown or pulled back into a sweet topknot.

#8: Flat Twisted Mohawk Updo

Here is one of the best hairstyles for short natural hair, especially if you want an updo to show off your curls. The upward braids draw the eye to those adorable twisted curls on top. It’s a snazzy hairstyle that can be worn with or without bangs.

#9: Fun Tapered Hairstyle with Defined Curls

For black women who are seeking traditional ways to wear their hair, it’s usually all about shaping. If keeping your curly locks protected is not your highest priority, try a tapered hairstyle for your curls. Show off your shiny, healthy hair as you grow it from a shorter to longer taper.

#10: Natural Undercut with Shaved Designs

Your naturally curly hair looks amazing when you leave your curls loose for all to see. To style short natural hair so the curls look neat and organized, go with an undercut that has shaved designs on the sides, and add in a glint of red highlights on the ends of the curls for a brighter look.

#11: Knotted Headscarf

Some cute and simple natural hairstyles for black women rely on accessories – headscarves, bandanas, headbands, etc. This look is timeless, it’s versatile, and it’s vital for protecting natural hair. It’s also the perfect ‘do for those days when you simply don’t want to show off your hair.

#12: Inverted Cornrows

Inverted cornrows, also known as Didi braids, are magical. Cornrows are ideal for natural hair anyway, especially for women who need a style that protects their hair. The inverse of this popular style looks as a fresh take on traditional cornrows. It showcases a similar sleekness, but the braids seem to be pressed into the hair.

#13: Short Natural Sass

Short natural curls don’t need much to look gorgeous, other than some hold and definition easily achieved with styling products. With this short length you probably won’t use some large accessories, but a couple of hair clips complimenting the texture of your hair will definitely add a lot.

#14: Pretty Afro with Babylights

Longer tapers are perfect for women who prefer to wear natural hairstyles for short hair with a big volume on top. Update it with babylights and add your favorite big earrings – the short sides let you show off your jewelry and beautiful Jawline.

#15: Warm Brown Natural Undercut

Vary the length and silhouette of your short afro using a taper and an undercut. This tapered cut with sharp sideburns blends femininity and edge for a modern look.

#16: The Tightest Tiny Curls

This stunning afro is all tight curls and high shine. At the time when women are embracing their natural hair more than ever, afros are absolutely in vogue, and with good reason. Embrace those curls!

#17: Dark Chocolate Short Natural Undercut

Wear your hair in a short afro that has a lot of long and wild curls. The closely cropped sides and the pointy sideburns are the perfect balance to the splash of chocolate curls. It’s an ideal style for women with thick, voluminous hard-to-control hair.

#18: Cornrows to Twist-Out Top Updo

If you’re drawn to undercuts and tapers, but aren’t ready to cut your hair that short, try braided updos that mimic the styles you like. This is a pretty example of a modern protective updo particularly stunning for African American women.

#19: Natural Faux Hawk

This natural faux hawk is a work of art. It’s a perfect example of an intricate braided pattern composed of simple twists and zigzag parts. Look at those clear zigzags, the flawless lines, and the twisted curls. This ‘do has everything, and it’s quite short and comfortable to wear.

#20: Side-Parted Medium Layered Hairstyle

Let your loose curls breathe a sigh of relief when they’re fashioned into a feminine bob. Short natural hairstyles should be tailored to your face shape, hair type, and length. It’s not always about braided hairstyles with extensions.

#21: Pixie with Curls

This is a pixie taken all the way to the next level. Those curls are flawlessly formed – neither too tight, nor too loose, soft, manageable, and shiny. The details, such as the baby hairs and the curled sideburns, are particularly gorgeous.

#22: Short Natural Faux Hawk

The faux hawk is a popular style among women with natural hair because it’s showy, flattering and quite easy to style. Slick the sides, fluff the curls, and that’s basically all it takes. Of course, the color also means a lot if you want to enhance the feel of Mohawk with hair this short.

#23: That’s a Wrap

Who knew that a simple headwrap was so eye-catching? This is an excellent way to create a statement hairstyle without spending a lot of time, money, or energy. Headwraps and scarves are ideal accessories for protecting natural black hair, styling with them is pretty and easy!

#24: Top Knot Meets Afro

When you want to sleek hair back but don’t have enough length, you can either go the popular afro puff route or make a curly half up top knot. The back is left on its own, a full, lush ‘fro. Together, the two create a dynamic ‘do that will make strangers do a double take – so simple and so cute!

#25: Short Natural 4C Hairstyle

This twisted out ‘fro is fierce, fabulous, and fantastically easy to steal. A twist out lasts for days and every new day it looks a bit different, making everyone think you are making something new with your hair every day.

#26: Side-Parted Natural Curly Bob

Embrace your frizzy curls and let them go crazy in a modified afro hairstyle. The deep side part brings a cute asymmetry into your look and draws attention to your perfectly shaped eyebrows and beautiful eyes.

#27: Bubble Braid Updo for Natural Hair

If you have a special event and want to try eye-catching and unique natural African American hairstyles, you’ll love this option. The bubble braid with accurate geometric sections will draw many admiring glances.

#28: Wet Look

Embrace those kinky curls and coils. Let them stand out and shine. Add some product for sheen and structure, but for the most part, this ‘do is low-maintenance and high glamour.

#29: Short and Shaved

Love androgynous looks? Adore super short black natural hairstyles? Pick this one next time. Shaven in the back and on the sides, this style also embraces textured curls, resulting in a cute super short Mohawk. The curls are tight, flawlessly formed, and add just enough feminine edge to balance out the entire style.

#30: Medium Layered Cut for Tiny Curls

Take advantage of your wash and wear short natural hair and don’t spend too much time on styling. Leave it loose, or use a cute headband to dress it up a little.

#31: Pretty Short Natural Cut

We love this simple, black natural cut because it is just perfectly ordinary. No bangs, no braids, no highlighting, only you and your super short hair looking pretty, natural, and easy-going. The rounded shape can be styled higher or lower, depending on your preferences.

#32: Asymmetrical Short Curly Layered Hairstyle

Show off your healthy, shiny hair and prove that cute hairstyles for black women don’t always have to involve a full head of braids. There’s just one braid on the side, and the rest of the hair is free to do its own thing. The long side tendril is an extra-cute detail.

#33: Pinned Back Short Natural Hair

This look is super cute. Keep your style simple and fuss-free trying this version of an afro puff. Push it more back and add some sort of pompadour bangs. It’s actually a small roll above your forehead for an added height.

#34: Beautiful Kinky Curls

For an easy style that you can dress up or dress down, short hair is where it’s at. All-one-length curls make for a classy, chic look that can go with just about anything. To make the style extra special, brush and pin hair back at the temples.

#35: Tri-Color Curls

Natural short hairstyles don’t have to be completely natural. It’s more about natural texture — the color is totally up to you. This style is fun and bright. Plus the color blocking is a creative way to transition from black to blonde.

#36: Short Curly Hairstyle with Nape Undercut

Short hair is on trend and super easy to manage. The nape undercut is subtle and decorative, yet when combined with highlighted natural curls, the contrast it creates is totally chic. This cute curly hairstyle is the perfect look for all occasions and all seasons.

#37: Natural Hairstyle with Closely Clipped Sides

This wild curly style oozes sex appeal and confidence. Tapering the curls in the back with them growing longer in the front creates a bang-like effect that adds mystery to your look. If you are feeling bold, complement this look with the classic red lipstick and winged liner makeup for a daring appearance.

Delicate micro-spiral curls sit close to the head and swirl gently around the ears and neck for a feminine edge to a boyish cut. Ultra-low-maintenance, this cut will work on any curl type and is easy to style; just wash and go for a sassy short look.

#58: Wedgy Curly Pixie

Cut like a wedge, this pixie is soft and feminine, with long layers on top to bring out the coily curls. Nape area is stacked and left just long enough to show some texture, while the sides are cut shorter with a slight sideburn. Finally, this look can be parted on one side or fluffed up for added volume.

#59: Ultra-Close Crop

The easiest and simplest to maintain of the short natural hairstyles, this cut is the epitome of wash-and-go. Curls are cut almost all the way down to the scalp and left the same length all over, and the edges are cleaned up neatly to complete the look. This style really shows off an oval or heart-shaped face and gives a sleek, yet still natural and curly look.

#60: Natural Hair TWA

The length of this natural TWA is midway between a pixie and an Afro, landing right in between at a teeny weeny Afro. The styling of this cut is simple. Curls can be left coiled and close to the head, fluffed out for a puffier look, or twisted out for something entirely different.

#61: Spunky Natural Fade with Shaved Part Line

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

This bold and spunky look combines just a bit of curly, feminine flair with clean, barber-cut edges and lines. The top section is the only place where curls are visible. Sides are buzzed very short with neat lines to further complete the look. Low-maintenance and easy, this cut requires virtually no styling.

#62: Pixie Afro

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

Combining two cuts in one, the top of this look says Afro while the bottom says pixie. Buzz-cut sides and clean lines contrast with natural, coily top section that you can style as wild or as tame as you like. A shaved-in part line gives just a bit of additional spunk, therefore completing the look with one more clean line for a dramatic and sassy effect.

#63: Disconnected Natural Hair Pixie

The sides and back of this tapered, disconnected pixie contrast with the rounded, curly top for a clean-cut look with natural flair. Hence, this style can be a wash-and-go, or you can play with the top section just a bit. Either twist it out or fluff it up for a couple of different looks.

#64: Twist-Out with Tiny Side Braids

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

This short natural hairstyle is the perfect length for a couple of different types of twist-outs. This twist-out has a few frayed ends for a more tousled, flirty look. Most noteworthy, two tiny side braids have been added in rows to give a slightly punky vibe to the look.

#65: Disconnected Coily Twists

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

The top of this coily look is drastically disconnected from the back and sides, which are buzzed closely and cut in clean lines. Longer top coils are twisted out for a bit more dramatic look. The base burgundy brown color is highlighted with copper, consequently adding dimension to the curls.

#66: Mid-Length TWA

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

This Afro style basically falls right in between an Afro and a TWA, so it’s a mid-length TWA. Corkscrews can be styled closer to the head for a TWA look or fluffed out for volume and a full-on Afro. The choice is yours. Regardless, this cut is the quintessential natural black hairstyle.

#67: 4A long Tapered Pixie

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

These 4A curls are left long enough for a stacked taper in the back and a face-framing bang, yet short enough to still be called a pixie. The length is ideal to show off the hair’s natural texture, making this look an easy one to style and maintain while remaining feminine and flirty.

#68: Tousled Pixie

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

Soft and feminine yet tousled and sexy, these 3B curls are cut into a sweet, simple long pixie style. Curls are left just long enough to play with, and therefore you can twist them out or loosen them as desired. Pull a few curls down for more of a bang, or push it all back and off your face; however you style it, this look is a winner.

#69: Super-Simple Buzzed Crop

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

Low-maintenance and hassle-free, this natural hairstyle is buzzed short all over for a boyish look that still holds plenty of feminine charm. This natural look is an easy way to keep your hair wash-and-go but still show a bit of the natural curl. Add a headband or scarf for a versatile look to this simple style.

#70: Fun and Feminine Red Curls

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

A variation on the pixie wedge shape, this short natural hairstyle is curly and longer on top, shorter in the back. Corkscrews are left intact and are styled in all directions, giving a carefree look to the burgundy red style. A few coppery highlights are interspersed throughout the top section, giving added depth to the dark color and curls.

#71: Perfect TWA

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

Even without the longer rounded lower section, this cut is the perfect example of a teeny weeny Afro. With its smooth, round shape, it balances out a square or rectangular face perfectly. This cut is all about clean lines and a smooth look; no tousle or wild curls here. Therefore, the result is a classy, professional-looking ‘do that is timeless for natural hairstyles.

#72: Curly Twist-Out

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

The top lengths of this flirty pixie cut are twisted out into perfect corkscrew spirals, giving it a fun and feminine feel. The sides and back are cut short, yet curls are still long enough to soften lines around the ear and neckline. Twisty spirals are piled high on top of the head, giving curly volume for days!

#73: Afro Pixie

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

Reminiscent of 70s natural black hairstyles, this look combines the crop of a pixie with the height of an Afro on the top section for plenty of volumes. If you’d like, the top can be styled closer to the head for a TWA look that you can still rock. Or, add volume all over for a tapered Afro look. The choice is yours!

#74: Coily Pulled-Back Puff

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

Perfect coily corkscrews are pulled back into a large puff look, creating clean edges around the hairline and lots of curly volume on the top, thus drawing attention to both the curls and the face. Cute and sweet, this style works well for any curl type, and you can customize the size and height of the puff as desired.

#75: Clean, Close Crop

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

Part curly pixie, part boyish fade, this look retains as much natural texture as possible while keeping the sides and back close and clean-cut. Corkscrews on top are left long enough to play with, and thus you can fluff them up or tousle them as desired. Soft side waves retain femininity with this low-maintenance natural hairstyle.

#76: Corkscrew Fauxhawk

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

Medium-length tiny corkscrews are full and flirty, pulled back into a tousled fauxhawk style with a bit of an edgy vibe. Curls give the look just enough femininity in the spunky style, but don’t worry, the sides are just pinned back. You can return to your regular hairstyle the next day—or switch off to keep them guessing.

#77: Spiral Twist-Out

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

This long pixie cut has just enough length for a spiral twist-out, giving each curl perfect corkscrew definition in a flirty, tapered shape. Shiny spirals lie fairly close to the head, thus drawing the attention to the face and eyes. Top section retains enough length to add volume as desired. Tousle or fluff for a more dramatic look that stays in the natural hairstyles category.

#78: Luscious Locks

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

This close-cut pixie combines short edges and clean lines with full curls on the top that can only be described as luscious. Shiny micro-spiral curls are left intact and naturally styled, and thus can be volumized more or less as desired depending on the day. You may find you want to let these curls do their own thing every day!

#79: Asymmetrical Pixie

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

With one side short and one side long, this natural hair pixie is a sassy treat for the eyes. Edgy and classy, the look combines a short natural hairstyle with a longer, heavier look that falls to one side. Tight fractal curls work beautifully for both lengths, but this cut will work with any curl type as well.

#80: Slightly Asymmetrical Pixie

CREDIT TO / INSTAGRAM

Long and voluminous on top and short and sassy on the sides, this pixie is almost disconnected due to the contrast. Tightly coiled zigzag curls fall just a bit heavier on one side for a slightly asymmetrical look that adds just enough edge to be spunky. Curls can be fluffed even further on top for additional volume.

You can also mix a goddess braid with a large and lovely puff, instead of a ponytail. Start braiding in the front, near your hairline, and continue to the side into your puffy ponytail. Fluff up the back part as much as you can for some afro glam.

7. Feed-In Braided Hairstyles for Natural Hair

The beauty of feed-in braids is that they add dynamism. If you want a fancier approach to your natural hairstyle, combine two feed-in braids in a zigzag movement and finish it off in a low puffy bun. Alternatively, continue with a braided bun in a similar fashion.

If you want to ditch the curls for a while, opt for a sleek and pulled back look. Part your hair as you please and bring the rest back into a classy chignon.

10. Big Puffy Buns

This fabulous puffy bun is another amazing look. Please note that your hair needs to be a bit longer to obtain the large bun, but after that, it’s all about patience for carefully styling it.

[amazon box=”B00LI1SSFO”]

11. Twisted Natural Braided Hairstyles

Long locks can also be accentuated by braiding down to draw attention to their length. You can create a twisted braid that flows down to the side. The longer the hair, the better the final impact of this natural protective style.

12. Huge Curly Hair

While other ladies need to get a perm for locks like these, this lovely gal sports them naturally. If your hair falls like this naturally, consider this: once you grow your hair to about halfway down your back (when straightened), highlight your natural features with this huge curly hairstyle.

13. Cute Short Natural Hairstyles

You can style your TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro) in a wide variety of ways. If you want to go past the classic, all-around afro style, you can part your hair to the side. It gives your TWA a boost of personality and it will also beautifully bring out your curl pattern.

14. Messy Half Up Styles

Have a long bob or shoulder-length hair and need a quick hairstyle? You can never go wrong with a half up, half down! Consider leaving a few stray strands in the front to personalize the look and create a face-framing effect.

15. Natural Hair in Double Puffs

Pom-pom hairstyles are an adorable way to show off a young lady’s natural curls. This hairstyle is extremely easy to put together if you have medium-length hair. Just get two hair ties and some product to sleek down the rest.

One cornrow or a small French braid to the side is a super simple way to get an exotic look. All you have to do is get the braid done and leave the rest of your hair naturally curly on the other side.

17. Puffy Bun and Curly Bangs

Curly bangs really have a charm of their own. Flaunt your lovely little corkscrew curls to the front and wrap the rest into a cute puffy bun at the top.

18. All Natural Hairstyles for Medium Length Hair

What can be prettier than combining afro hair with wide crochet curls? After you style your hair this way, you can leave it down or tie it into a large puff. It will look stunning either way.

19. Side Twist and Curly Locks

If you don’t want the hassle that comes with intricate braiding, you can simply twist a part of your hair to the side. Secure the twist with a few bobby pins at the end and leave the rest of your hair fabulously curly.

20. Afro Ombre Black Natural Hairstyles

An afro ombre is truly a visual privilege. Not only does it boost the impact of the afro itself by contouring the ends, but it’s also a funky fresh way to sport one in the first place.

[amazon box=”B00ILB5VUY”]

21. Straight and Shiny Natural Hair

It’s going to take a lot of hair product and patience, but you can obtain silky smooth straight looks even with 4C hair. After you wait to grow out your hair to medium-length, get a good haircut and straighten your locks, slightly curling them at the end.

22. Flat Twists with Puffy Ponytail

Flat twists can be used both for braiding and for outlining natural curls. For this look, you get the best of both worlds. Start with some swirling flat twists that spring from your part and leave the back with your curls.

If your natural hair has grown to shoulder-length, you already have numerous options for styling it. A great way to show off finger coils is to take two strands from each side and pin them to the back for face-framing effects.

[amazon box=”B07YFF1NQQ”]

26. Long Corkscrew Curls

As a reward for having the patience and persistence to healthily grow your natural locks out, let your hair down! Enjoy all the natural volume, optionally adding a bit of color with an ombre to boost the dynamism even more.

27. Natural Hairstyles for Short Hair

A TWA is a perfect reason for you to start stocking up on your favorite hair accessories. Even one as simple as this gold, metallic headband can make your whole look so much lovelier. Feel free to try out different materials and styles until you get the best one for your TWA.

28. Hairstyle with Bantu Knots

Like twist outs, Bantu knots are a fantastic way of getting those well-defined, eye candy curls. Nevertheless, they look just as adorable when leaving them in. Young ladies and adult women alike can sport Bantu knots beautifully.

29. Natural Hairstyles for Black Women with Headbands

Headbands are one of the top accessories for complementing naturally curly hair. They can be easily replaced with any narrow scarf and look just as pretty. After wrapping the headband or scarf around your head, puff up those curls for marvelous results.

30. Feed-In Zig Zag Cornrows with Double Buns

We’re used to seeing cornrows braided down vertically. However, feed-in, zig-zag cornrows are a fun approach to this traditional braiding technique. To adapt the look for girls, finish the braids off with two high double buns.

31. Braid Up into Half Up Curls

If you’re tired of the same old half up, half down hairstyle, you can level up by adding some braids. Whether they be goddess braids, cornrows or French braids, we recommend braiding three to the front and ending them in your long curly locks.

32. Large Puff Easy Natural Hairstyles

A subtle headband can be a miracle worker for flawless large puffs. You can get a black headband to discretely blend with your natural hair color and leave the rest curly and puffy on top.

You can leave your twist outs on for a funky medium-length hairstyle. Just pull them out a little bit on the sides and you have a faux locs appearance that’s definitely an eye-catching look!

34. Big Bouncy Finger Coils

Layers are your friend. If you want an afro-like hairstyle, make sure that you ask your stylist to trim your layers for a round shape. Puff it up for an outgoing natural hairstyle.

35. Straightened and Braided

If your little girl now has super long hair, you can straighten it for a special occasion. If you don’t want it to be simple, you can create two braids to the side and bring them together in the middle into one. The look is truly pretty and will make your daughter feel like a princess.

[amazon box=”B08FWYKN87″]

36. Faux Hawk Protective Hairstyles for Natural Hair

Many women love the edge that a regular, shaved mohawk brings. However, it can be incredibly challenging to grow the sides out properly afterward. For this, you can create the illusion through a faux hawk, which will allow your curls to bounce around on top and in the back.

37. Fancy Twisted Updos

Another chic wedding or black tie event hairstyle that looks charming on natural hair is this twisted updo. Start with twisted braids on the side and continue in a swirled updo at the back.

38. Quick Head Wrap for Natural Hairstyles

There are countless ways to style natural hair with a head wrap. For a bold appearance, consider getting a wide head wrap and tying a large bow at the top. You’ll glow like an African princess!

39. Gold Accessory Curly Styles

As you have noticed, gold hair accessories contrast amazingly with dark hair and skin tones, creating an all-around glow. This metallic headband can be paired with a gold necklace and earrings for magnificent results.

40. Scarf Hairstyles for Naturally Curly Hair

Any old scarf can be transformed into the ultimate hair accessory. This messy yet well-studied hairstyle is just what you need for a casual summer outfit. Tying the hair up will help you beat the heat with style while leaving loose curls around will define their beauty.

[amazon box=”B08VWBBN7R”]

41. Simple Natural Hairstyles with Thin Wraps

A thin headband in the color of your choice can also be used for contouring your hairstyle and keeping your hair out of your eyes. You can go for the main shade of your outfit to match.

42. Full Cornrows with Side Chignon

An elegant approach to sporting cornrows is to model them into a specific shape. For example, you can begin from a side part and braid your way all-around to a chic side chignon.

43. Twist Out Curls and Feed In Braids

If you want thicker braids, you can go for this feed in style that starts from the back of one ear. Bring the twisted curls to the front on top for a super sweet natural hairstyle.

44. Shaved Short Natural Hairstyles for Black Women

One of the prettiest ways to rock a shaved haircut is to mix it with a pixie. You can shave the sides and back and style the rest of your curls to the side or front.

45. Short Finger Coils

Show your love for the 90s with these beautiful finger coils. You can add a side part for a modern approach to this classic look, which works well for any hair lengths.

[amazon box=”B01MQRR4DS”]

50. Twists and Wooden Beads

Lastly, wooden beads are an accessory to keep in mind when spicing up natural hairstyles. You can get twist braids all around and top them off with two wooden beads for each braid. Going back to the roots has never been so stylish!
