For a casual look, you really can’t beat a natural rounded bob for African hair. It will give your hair just the right amount of bounce and volume. For a great look that’s really on-trend right now, have a little balayage highlighting done to give this timeless look a modern update.
Half braided, Half down
Natural afro hair can look amazing when cut and styled to make the most of its volume. A half up, half down style gives you the power to control your hair whilst still looking natural and effortless. Simply divide your hair front to back in order to box braid half the hair. Braiding the front sections of the hair will create a neat and stylish finish to frame your face, whilst still keeping your hair wild and free at the back.
Braids with Beads
Fully braided hair is such an elegant look and allows you to keep your hair neat. You can style it in so many different ways once it’s braided – Even with beads. It's not only a trend! This style has been a part of African culture for many years.
Short and poppy
We just love this short and sophisticated style, with just enough hair to give height and volume. Styled at the sides, then keep your hair long on top to enable your natural curls to shine through. This is the perfect pixie cut for all you heart-shaped faces out there.
Using a chemical relaxant on afro hair can be a great way to inject some glamour into your look. It creates smooth shiny hair which can then be curled gently using tongs or rollers. Make sure you use a generous amount of hair product to keep the shine and curl in place.
Full frontal braids
This stunning braided look is so glamourous it will take you from work to a night out seamlessly. Clip your hair up at the front and leave some tendrils falling down the back for added glamour.
