Juneteenth Natural Hairstyle Inspiration: 15 Beautiful IG Pics

By Jacqueline Samaroo

Juneteenth may only be a year old as a federal holiday, but many African Americans have been commemorating and celebrating it for decades. There is no doubt that 19 June 1865 is a significant date in the timeline of American history – it meant an end to institutional slavery in Texas, the last hold-out state in the U.S.

It did not, however, mean an end to racial discrimination and much of that discrimination has been aimed at Black hair, Afro hair, textured hair – call it what you will.

We have, slowly, begun to shake the stigma; to embrace our kinky, coily, and curly hair in all its glory and the natural hair movement has helped. It has encouraged so many of us to embark on our natural hair journeys, learning to love and care for our natural hair. All leading up to the much-welcomed Crown Act.

We are embracing the many different ways in which our superbly versatile hair can be styled. And, that is exactly what this article focuses on – hairstyle inspiration to help you show off your hair in its natural state this Juneteenth. Go ahead and rock a protective style, blowout, twist-out, or any style you choose!

15 Juneteenth natural hairstyles pics for your inspiration. Enjoy!
