Pigtails aren’t just for little girls! We’ll show you 2 ways to wear the look for an updo that’s playful, yet remains elegant and grown up.
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 so well!
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!
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.
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.
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.
