Cool easy to do hairstyles for natural black hair

Sometimes you don’t want to reinvent the wheel. Sometimes, all you need is a simple and beautiful haircut for your black hair — without adding all those extensions and spending long hours on making a hairstyle. That’s why you are here now, I guess, and that’s why we are ready to help you.

The first hairstyle is the twist out haircut, and it’s just great. If you are looking for a full, step by step tutorial, it would be wise to open YouTube — but we can assure you there’s nothing complicated here. You just wash your hair, put some gel, make sections and braid/twist them, let your hair dry, take the twists apart and pin them up. This updo is certainly worth your time — just look at the first photo here and you’ll agree with us! By the way, the second hairstyle is very similar to the first one, but with one difference — while you’ll have to pin your twists to make the first hairdo, the second one doesn’t need this step. And it still looks amazing!

Third photo is great, too! These pigtails are a very good choice for a young girl, but we are sure that they will certainly work for you, too. We even think that they’ll make you look 5 years younger! As for the last hairdo, well, it’s just another easy and fast haircut that will not take too much of your time. And it’s very elegant, of course.

Cute simple natural hairstyles for medium hair

You needed something cute and simple for your medium-length, right? We hear you.

And we highly recommend to pay some attention to these four haircuts. The first one, for example, is a faux hawk… but it’s definitely not one of those teenager faux hawks. It’s a very feminine and edgy hairstyle, and it looks even better with a disconnected line. Pure energy!

However, if it’s still too complicated, you can take a look at the second photo. It’s a “finger coils”, and they got their name from the tool you’ll have to use in order to make them. Yes, it’s all about your fingers — you just roll your hair with ‘em and voila! It’s done!

The third hairstyle is a little more complicated than the previous one. You’ll need to buy a roller set to make it — but don’t worry about it, because we have two good news here: they are very cheap, and the result is 100% worth it!

Braids are good, especially when they are natural. However, we have something that will make them even better — the front puff! Such a combination would work great for both young girls and older ladies, that’s what we know.

Updos are the classic, you can’t deny it. If you’ve decided to make such a hairstyle, continue reading — we’ve found 4 amazing examples of very easy natural updos right here!

The first one is perfect for medium and long hair. It’s a double waterfall braid, which can be easily done at home, and the good news is that your age doesn’t matter. This updo will work perfect for both young ladies and older women.

The second updo is quite simple, too. You’ll have to make two sections of hair, to tie them into a half-knot and to pull them tight. Voila — a very elegant and chic hairdo is ready!

What we like about the third hairstyle is that it’s a perfect formal and informal hairstyle. Like, it can be your average work day in office or a wedding/prom party — this updo will work great in both cases.

A messy bun, what can be better than that? Well, only if there are no formal occasions today, because this hairdo is certainly not what we recommend to wear at such days.

Whether you are a hair pro or a beginner, everyone needs rest. Here we’ve collected four good natural hair styles that will not take your time — and we are sure such hairstyles will work well for both professionals and for beginners.

The first two hairdos are extremely simple. A bun and short twisted hairstyle, sounds like something extremely easy, right? And these cuts really are. What’s more, this simplicity does certainly add some elegance, so don’t worry — these hairdos are not only easy, they are also beautiful and chic.

The third one is amazing, btw. It’s a so-called pineapple updo hairstyle, it looks very nice, and it will only take 5 minutes to make it. Great, isn’t it? Oh, and it’s a very decent overnight hairstyle, by the way.

Low maintenance black natural hairstyles for work

The previous hairdo is probably not the best choice for work, agree? That’s why we’ve found four haircuts that will work great as formal haircuts. You can use them every day, and there won’t be any problems with any of them.

So, we’ll begin with a very short hairstyle, which makes a statement in some way. It’s very feminine, and it’s very easy to maintain it. Look at the photo and you’ll get it.

It seems that we’ve forgotten about the ponytails, right? But come on, who said that ponytails can’t be formal enough? This one definitely can. And of course, it’s very easy haircut, too — especially if you already have curly hair.

What about a tapered fro? It’s a very short haircut, and the perfect length for this one is 4 inches. If your hair is longer than 4 inches (~10 cm), it will be difficult to make it and to maintain it. This fro is perfect for oval faces, and we like that it’s a relaxed hairdo… not too relaxed, tho.

Oh, and meet the last hairdo — it’s a classic curly wash n go cut, and it’s extremely easy to make it. It’s probably the simplest hairstyle on this list, and that’s why everyone likes it (and because it adds volume).
