Next you need to find the perfect afro hairstyle for you. After that you have to style them! You can find some in this post Afro hairstyle ideasthat we’re loving right now, as well as some of our top tips for styling natural hair. Read on:
1. Full Afro
We love the look of this fully textured afro hairstyle. A rounded halo cut like this one flatters almost all face shapes. Just make sure your afro is moisturized so you get plenty of shine. Coconut oil is a great way to moisturize and add shine to your hair.
2. Mini Ponytail Afro Hairstyles
We know that a free-flowing afro can sometimes be high maintenance. That doesn’t mean you have to wear a completely different hairstyle, though: a mini ponytail can be a quick fix for styling your hair while keeping it out of your face.
3. Medium ‘Fro
If you’re growing out of straightened hair or are simply rocking a tighter buzz buzz, a mid-length afro is perfect for you.
4. Technicolor Full Afro
Having natural hair is no reason to give up the hair color of your dreams. If you’re planning a big color change, be sure to see a master hairstylist.
If the color you want involves a bleaching process, remember that the bleach can alter your curl texture. Bleach opens up your hair’s outer layer and can cause damaged, frizzy hair. Keep damage at bay by using natural hair oils.
5. Center part
Wearing an afro hairstyle doesn’t mean you need a round halo shape. On the contrary! Adding a parting adds even more interest to your hair because you change the way your hair falls. The best part is that you don’t need a haircut for this hairstyle. All you have to do is section your hair along a parting line and style it to either side.
6. Defined curls and side parting
If a center part isn’t your thing, try a side part with defined curls. We like to use it because of its innovative gel-serum combination. It’s not the only serum we like for natural hair, but it’s certainly one of our favorites for getting shiny, soft (not crisp) defined curls.
7. Blonde Umbra ‘Fro
Bleaching natural hair is always an option. It may take a bit more time to go from black hair to blonde, but it’s worth it if you don’t want to completely wreck your hair all at once. If you are willing to go to the hairdresser regularly, you can get this gorgeous ombré look. Make sure, however, that you carry out hair oil treatments between bleaching.
8. Heat-free wash-and-go
We believe the heat-free wash-and-go is what a true wash-and-go should be. First wash your hair with and then create a soft and well-moisturized base before styling.
Detangle hair with a wide-toothed comb, apply a leave-in conditioner such as B. Then let it air dry. After that, blow dry your hair with your hands or with a hair picker until you achieve the look you want to create a fluffy fro.
9. The Froghawk
This hairstyle is super simple and super stylish! To create this look, detangle clean, damp hair with a wide-tooth comb, apply a styling oil such as B. To seal in moisture and add shine, twist into large batches and then allow to air dry. Once your hair is dry, use an afro to fluff it up and then pin the sides for a cool mohawk effect.
10. The twist out
This look can be created overnight, and I’m not kidding. After washing and conditioning, apply a defining gel to your hair, then twist in sections. The bigger the twist, the bigger the curls; the tighter the twist, the smaller the curls. Small twists also dry faster overnight, but that’s entirely up to you.
Most importantly, after twisting, sleep on a silk pillowcase to speed up the overnight drying process. Covering your hair allows moisture to become trapped in the hair and prolong drying time. In the morning you can undo the twists, shake them up and style your hair however you like!
11. Wear it naturally cropped
Natural hairstyles are at the top of our list right now. However, it is important to practice good hair care no matter how you wear your Afro style. Getting a regular haircut and investing in the right hair care products is always important.
If you like a simple and chic look, hair accessories can help jazz up your tiny afro, especially if you’re looking for easy styling ideas that will get you out the door in under 10 minutes. Whether you’re sporting stylish clips, combs or glittery headbands, it’s important that your accessories are gentle enough on your hair. Some accessories can be too harsh on very delicate hair and cause unwanted breakage that you don’t want.
13. Two Tone Color
If you want to spice up your Afro style, you can spice up your look with some bold colors (like two-toned hair dye). However, be sure to consult a hairstylist with any coloring option, as natural hair is very delicate. To be on the safe side, you should first schedule a consultation with your colorist to discuss which color look best suits your skin tone and hair type.
14. Rejuvenate your sides
If you like a look with lots of edges, then tapering your afro to the sides is best. To achieve this look, ask your stylist to gently brush the sides of your afro. This gives your hair a fresh and cool look. Bonus: When it comes to styling this look, it’s important to remember that this type of high-impact cut usually requires minimal to no styling.
15. Flowery Afro Hairstyles
Dress up your afro for the warmer seasons with some gorgeous flowers!
16. Space Puffs
We just love it when some of our favorite hairstyles get a modern update, as in the case of these fun space puffs. Most importantly, you can wear this look to work, to brunch, or after a workout as it allows you to have a carefree Afro look.
17. the hair tassel
We love this elegant updo for your afro. The way you accentuate your afro puff, you also show off a cool style!
18. Half Up Afro Style
One of our favorite looks for all hair types is the half updo. This hairstyle allows you to take the weight of your hair off your face while presenting a very stylish look. For example, opt for half up bangs or a half up bun (as seen here) and let some of your natural texture shine through.
19. Lateral auxiliary knots
For a quick and easy afro hairstyle, opt for bantu knots that have a casual appeal.
20. Pulled Afro Hairstyles
There are days when you want to make your hairstyle a little more reserved. Whether it’s for an event or in the heat of summer, it’s important that you have a choice! For example, after brushing your hair, you can pin it back into a low chignon and pair it with your favorite headband – and you’re all set!
21. Pinned to the side
If you want to change up your look and keep your hair out of your face, why not pin back a side? Have fun with an accessory of your choice to transform your style.
22. Brushed out Afro hairstyles
Brush out your hair for added volume and a fluffier texture. Do this gently and slowly, you don’t want to overdo it and potentially damage your strands or create unwanted frizz.
23. Deep Side Part
Take your side parting low to add volume and drama to your afro hairstyles. You can maintain this parting with a bit of gel to keep your curls defined and controlled throughout the day.
24. Bold Red Afro Hairstyles
This color is not for the faint of heart. We love this bold red color: it demands attention and brings a whole new personality to your look.
25. Mini flowers
If the flower accessories seem a little big to you, you can scale them down for a more dainty, flirty style.
