Short hair does not mean ‘lack of options for natural hair’. As a matter of fact, you have tons of styles to rock that are simple, elegant and easy. I am always here for the easy as I am a lazy natural (not neglectful) and never want to spend too much time on my hair.
We love videos and as I will be creating some of my own (coming up soon!) I wanted to share three that share cute twisted updos that can be created on short to medium hair (right out of the TWA) that will be protective and easy for the flat twisted lovers.
Learning how to flat twist is a must for these styles but all three videos show close ups of them creating their styles so you can pick it up pretty quickly. With a few pins, and some braiding hair for the first one these styles can be yours within a few minutes.
TheChicNatural shares a flat-twisted updo that is a great protective style and should last at least a week or even longer. With a few pins, braiding hair and some moisturizer and gel for slickness, this style boasts of elegance, creativity and lasting charm. Cover at night and you’ve got a favorite protective style in your hairstyle arsenal.
Traeh gives us a easy, sexy flat twisted updo that works great on all hair lengths. Her halo crown takes only a few minutes to create and is a lasting style for up to a week if covered at night to protect. A protective style needing only a moisturizer, pins, gel for slicking down edges and a brush to aid the gel.
MyCurlyArmy gives a twist on a twisted updo with a back ponytail and twisted bangs. With Tangle Teezer in tow, we see her create another protective style that is cute, unique and easy to maintain with a scarf for nighttime and a few pins, a headband, moisturizer and gel to create.
Here are three simple, elegant and lasting protective styles that can be easily achieved on short natural hair longer than a TWA. Some would call this the awkward stage but that’s only if you haven’t a clue what to do with your hair. I think we’ve proven any length can rock sexy styles that will last and keep your morning short and sweet.
