Yes we concur, ‘you are not your hair’ but for some of us naturalistas, we often find ourselves in a ‘hair rut’, longing to try out a new hairstyle and one that is bound to turn some heads.

Who says you just need to be limited to a twist out? Why not push the envelope with cool cuts, colours, braids and protective styles?

Ready for a major dose of natural hair inspiration? Look below for a few ideas to tempt your tresses, and step up your mane game!

  1. Dyed TWA

You don’t always have to stick by the textbook definition of a teeny weeny afro. You can you take your TWA to the next level by adding a little colour for a sweet hue and a bold statement.

Just remember, before taking the colour plunge, talk to a professional hairstylist.

  1. Box Braids

There is no better way to slay than with box braids. We love them more for the low maintenance but most of all, for the endless ways you can wear them: intricate patterns, add cool hair accessories and fun pops of colour.

  1. The High Bun

This ultra-chic up do features a tight slicked bun that screams elegance and grace, perfect for day or night, work or play. This do also offers the perfect opportunity to play with makeup as your pulling your hair high up, you put focus on your face. Pair this hairstyle with this bold pink lip, and you will definitely be turning heads stat.

  1. Crochet Braids

Crochet braids are the unsung heroes of protective styling; as any hairstyle that flatters the shape of your face and saves you from damaging your hair, is an automatic win. More, is that if you’re all about ‘big hair, don’t care vibes’, crochet braids are the way to get them.
