Natural Hair Styles: 18 Simply Beautiful Afros for Your Inspiration

By Jacqueline Samaroo

For many of us, seeing our natural hair as naturally beautiful is still a challenge. We still get caught up in the mindset that straighter + longer = better. Well, here are 18 afro hair styles that definitely prove that equation wrong! They’re channeling everything from Pam Grier’s big, picked-out, kickass fro to Halle Berry’s curly TWA.

So, go ahead and get inspired as you enjoy gorgeous kinks, curls, and coils in the most iconic of natural hair styles – the afro.

Oh, the fro! It’s one of those natural hair styles that fills you up with loads of confidence when you truly own it; when you embrace it as a beautiful part of your beautiful self!

If anyone doubts its beauty or tries throwing shade your way because of your fro style, then simply blow them a kiss…

… relax, find your calm inner voice, and say a quiet prayer for their lack of appreciation…

Big or small – the fro don’t mind! It’s quite OK with being your CROWNing glory or a dreamy-looking halo that perfectly frames your face.

Your fro can also be your cheeky way of showing off the length and volume of your natural curly hair.

A good way to achieve the look is to start off your afro as twists or Bantu knots using the right products for afro hair textures.

You can then create your afro hairstyle from a twist out or Bantu knot out.

Are you considering going for the big chop? This Instagrammer did and she chronicled her hair journey on her IG page.

Rocking an afro as you learn about your hair and help it grow back healthy and strong can be an amazing thing.

You can add color to your afro hairstyle, as well.

Don’t you just love how a little color plays on the end of each of these curls, helping them to stand out? Kind of like they’re reaching out to you!

Of course, going for a bold, all-over color works really well, too. 

Color is a great way to get your natural hair styles to pop, Pop, POP!
