Gamechangers assemble! 5 Alternative ways to style natural hair
23 July 2018
When it comes to alternative hairstyles for natural black hair, we don’t
mean so out of the ordinary that people will question your sanity. Rather,
it’s about making a look your own, saying goodbye to the conventional, and
hello to new possibilities. Here are a few styles that do just that, and oh
The Cinnamon Roll Updo
Nothing is sweeter than this alternative hairstyle, and the more we see it,
the more we want a taste! Start by dividing your hair into horizontal rows
of equal size. Next, roll each section starting with your hair in the
front, by your forehead. For effective rolling of your hair, tuck the ends
under the roll as you go, pinning them in place.
This 90s hairdo is totally making a comeback and we’re welcoming it with
open arms. It’s super easy to achieve, whether you’re using natural or
braided locks. Simply separate the hair into two sections, twisting each
section into a bun, and then secure with a hairband or hairpins. We love!
The Rope Pompadour
This is a look that can be achieved in many ways, so you can totally have
fun with it! For this particular style, you’ll need to flip your head over,
halve your hair down the middle, and twist each section. Then merge them
together to create the rope twist and secure with a hairband once you’ve
reached the bottom. You’ll then take the hair, swing it around towards the
front and secure under the base of the pompadour.
The Hair Bow
You don’t get cuter than this alternative look! Begin by straightening your
hair with a flat iron, then brush up into a high ponytail and secure with a
hairband. Divide the ponytail into two halves, leaving a small piece of
hair in the centre to close the bow. Take the two strands of hair and roll
around the finger until you get a bow-like shape, then secure with pins.
Close the bow by pulling the lose section of hair over the centre of the
bow, tucking the remaining hair into your elastic band.
The Pineapple Hair
This deliciously wonderful hairdo got its name from the fruit its shape
resembles and we’re big fans of the lush tropical looks you can create with
it! Brush your hair into a high ponytail that’s close to your hairline and
secure with a hairband. Separate hair strands to create a fuller effect.
If you’re looking for that wow factor, these hairstyles have it. The best
part? Each can be modified depending on the look you’re trying to achieve.
And this is just the beginning. Visit your stylist for even more
alternative looks and how best to care for them.
