PUFFS
Ain’t nothing wrong with a puff. A puff is so quick and simple to do. It looks elegant and chic at the same time. All you have to do is pull your hair back with a string/headband/shoelace/satin scarf (after moisturizing your hair, of course) and tie it. Then fluff out your puff to your desired preference. That’s it, and you’re out the door looking fabulous.

Here's a video on how to rock a full and fab puff on short hair as many often feel short hair is limited. That couldn't be further from the truth!

BUNS
Buns are such as easy simple style yet it looks classy. Lazy days are bun days. If you’re having a hard time doing a braid-out or twist out just pull your hair up into a puff and tie it. But don’t fluff it out and leave. Roll the part that’s out into a donut bun with your hands or the donut bun that you can buy or make yourself. Secure it place with a scrunchie or bobby pins or the bun itself. And voila, took you less than 5 minutes to look classy.

Buns can be created on short or long hair and here's a video how to work with some Marley hair and have a gorgeous bun on short hair.

CROWN BRAIDS / GODDESS BRAIDS
Lastly, CROWN BRAIDS will have you slaying for the Goddesses of natural hair. This style may seem difficult or look hard but if you can braid (flat twist or french braid) you can create this style. Now, this needs to be created on medium to long length hair and this is a great protective style too.

Crown braids are an elegant yet sophisticated look. All you have to do it part your hair into two. Braid/Cornrow/Flat twist your hair down around the edges of the both sides. Then bobby pins the extra away to hide them. And there you go, looking sophisticated. You can place a head band if you want and leave out you curly sideburns to look flirty.

Three More Hairstyles to Consider 

Curly hair has a lot of variation in it. From different curl patterns to different overall textures, no two heads of curls are the same. Curly girls are always trying new looks to bring out the natural beauty of their curls. Here are a few of my favorite natural hairstyles.

The Pineapple 
This is one of my favorite styles because it is so easy and fast. It also lets me show off my curls while still keeping curls mostly up. To get this look, simply pull your hair into a high, loose ponytail. You want it more towards the front of your crown than the top. Then leave curls hanging forward over your forehead. For a classy finishing touch, wrap a silk scarf around your hair so it looks like hair is spilling out of it. This style was once a bedtime style to prevent friction, but more and more curlies are embracing it during the day.

Two Strand Flat Twist 
Another natural hairstyle that is easy to do and can save you some time, a two-strand flat twist looks great and works as a protective style. To create this look, you will create two French style braids and then bring hair together in a bun or loose ponytail.

The Frohawk 
For those times when you want a style that shows off your curls while adding volume and attitude, a Frohawk might be the best move. This look is fun and hip and best of all, it keeps your curls the center of attention! It can work with most hair lengths but is really great for medium to long hair. This look is basically made by styling hair up on top of your head to make it look like a Mohawk with the end result being a style with lots of volume and height.
