Protective Afro hairstyles
If you’re one of the millions of women who are currently ‘transitioning’ from chemically straightened hair to natural hair, you may have decided that the best way is to cut off the damaged ends.
Yes, I know we resist the idea of going short so we can grow strong, healthy hair from scratch. But short styles are really, really hot this year, so getting a trendy pixie cut can be very liberating!
And don’t forget that a pixie cut can knock years off your age and will really accentuate your eyes!
Natural Curls with Pixie Hairstyle
Short and curly Afro hairstyles
You only need about 2 inches of hair for a chunky, curly Afro hairstyle and you can style it so easily when it’s damp, you’ll gain hours of free-time you used to spend straightening your hair!
Just wind one-inch sections in no particular pattern around your finger and the curly texture of your hair will keep each little section in place while it dries naturally. Then you can leave the curls to create a fabulous textured look close to the head or fluff them up a little with your fingers for more volume and a trendy, tousled finish!

If your hair is long, there are lots of styles that use trendy diagonal braids to create a stunning upstyle. For instance, just one thick braid on the top of the head or an elaborate updo created from lots of thin plaits arranged in an eye-catching pattern decorating the back of the head.
