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.
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.
