This page serves as a culmination of the cute natural hairstyles I’ve done on my fine natural hair over the years. These styles consists of low manipulation, partially protective and fully protective styles (up-do’s with some of my ends exposed, buns, twists etc.)

Below is a mosaic view of images. You can click on the individual images for a larger view of the style. I will update this page with new and cute natural hair styles every now and then.

Certainly, what you’ll notice most of all is the definition. Styling black hair is never boring!

Cute Natural Hairstyles: Quick and Easy!

Black hair is very versatile. There are many cute natural and protective styles for natural hair to choose from: wash and go’s, buns, twists, braids, french rolls, up-do’s, down-do’s, curly ponytails and more.

While anybody with a similar length and curl pattern can effortless recreate these cute styles, those with fine naturally curly hair similar to mine will be most successful.

Yet if you have slightly shorter hair but long enough to pull back into a ponytail, you can recreate some of the pullback curly styles by using a drawstring ponytail.

Low Manipulation + Protective Styles

I don’t typically do lots of twist or braid styles. Most of my hair styling is based on low manipulation of my hair. So, wash ‘n go’s, twist outs and braid outs are my main thing. However, once in a while I do like to do a set of twists, larger twists and of course, buns are my boo!

In the winter, I do more full protective styles. Also, this is a time when I like to do hair challenges. Hair challenges help build discipline when it comes to styling because you won’t need to restyle your hair daily.

Low manipulation + limited products go hand in hand in my book.

Styling natural hair is fascinating because it never comes out exactly the same. The products and techniques you use will determine what the style comes out looking like.

The good thing about styling natural hair is it doesn’t matter if the hairstyle comes out exactly the way you anticipated. There’s always a fix for it! For example, let’s say your braid out or twist out is a little disappointing. Leave a few pieces of hair out and sweep the rest into an up-do. Hairstyle saved!

Creativity and your imagination are what will allow hair (in the case of those of us with kinky curly hair) to look it’s best.

Styling Cute Natural Hair Hairstyles – One Last Word

While it is my goal to inspire you with cute natural hairstyles that either reflect beautiful curl definition or just help you get out of the house faster in the morning, what I don’t want you to do is mimic the styles exactly. Put your own spin on these hairstyles.

Recreate these cute styles with the intention of highlighting the beauty of your own curl pattern taking into consideration your own thickness, texture and length.

There is no wrong way to style natural hair!
