Twisty, kinky, curly or fluffy – African American natural hairstyles are firmly back on the hair-fashion menu!

All showing the popularity of African American natural hairstyles right now!

And it’s not only women who are adopting natural styles, Dante de Blasio – the son of New York’s mayor – wears an eye-catching big, bold Afro, setting the trends for young black men all over the world!

The modern ‘fro

The new African American natural hairstyles are not just copying the big, round comb-out shapes of the ‘60’s and ‘70’s, there’s a fabulous modern twist to them nowadays!

One of the hottest African American natural hairstyles is the highly-textured and ragged finish afro. Shag-cuts are trendy across all hair-types this year and the shaggy afro is a great cut for taking advantage of the texture and volume of natural black hair.

New braids, twists and modern rolls

And there’s a whole load of new designs for the 21st century, in contemporary Bantu twists, loose braids and rolled ‘cornrows’, avoiding the hair damage that tight corn rows cause, of course.
