Draw some inspiration from the following natural hairstyles and turn heads this festive.
1. 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.
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. Flat Twists Updo
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.
4. 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.
5. 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!
6. 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.
7. Dry Curl
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.
8. 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!

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.
10. 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.
