It would be evasive to say black hair is not beautiful, especially these days when it seems everyone is embracing the whole theory of black identity.
I can almost see every black woman on the streets, at home and abroad showing their black and proud identity to the world.
Who says black is not beautiful? Creativity has shown there is nothing called impossibility, which applies to hair and Fashion.
We selected a few African hair trends that will water your eyes this week and we are sure you won’t want to settle for less.
The Bald tinted style: Looks as if everyone is going for this style plus it takes boldness to rock this style. you can call it the feminist look or the tomboyish one.
Whichever you want to you are free. The style means less stress for as long as you want to carry it.
The natural hair geng: Gone were those days when momma pulled all of us to the hair salon to relax our hair even though relaxing hair seemed fun then considering the fact relaxed hair was easy to comb and pull into a simple ponytail.
You would surely not lose a black identity with natural hairstyles. Here are a few suggestions for you. Natural ponytail, afro, the natural mohawk. there are millions of African hair braids you might want to consider.
Locs and Dreads: This particular trend is written all over the streets. You can either wear it natural or artificial. You can also make it long or short.
Whichever way you want to wear it. Locs and dread also last long on the hair and afterward you can style them whichever way you want.
The Coloured long braids: There has never been a better way to express colors. Long braids say it all. Talk about the classic hot babe look braids will give you.
Braids are the African kind of way. Revisit your roots this month by going for braids.
Twists out: Talking about revisiting natural roots, twists out is a great suggestion. You only need to twist your hair and then loosen the twists.
There are also ways of rocking twists in an afro.
Scarf Updo: This is a sure way to style your hair and you would not go wrong with this. A scarf is a good accessory to spice up your look!
The African puff: Remember the olden days’ puff puff we all rocked with beads while we were younger?
Puffs are starting to go versatile these days although accessories stand a chance of making them better.
Wool Braids: we all thought wool had gone extinct but we were wrong. If hair extensions might be long-term stress for you, wool is another alternative you might want to look into.
Flat twists: Maybe the whole idea of twists out does not suit you, try flat twists. If you are also a naturalist, flat twists are great protective styles for your hair.
Short curls: You want something simple and cute. Visit the salon to trim your hair and turn it into curls. The style suits the coming harmattan weather this December.
Cornrows: Something is quite surprising about this style. It has been trending as far back as we can remember. What harm will it do to go for this style? Whether long cornrows or short ones. You are sure good to go.
