10 Simple Natural Hairstyles for Beginners!


If you follow natural hair Youtube or Instagram pages it feels like you're always seeing tutorials for styles like this...

intricate cornrows

Absolutely gorgeous! But not a great option for the morning you slept in, or for someone new to natural hair. Whether you're a beginner or a seasoned stylist, everyone needs some go-to styles that are cute but more realistic and easy to accomplish with a low budget and minimal work. Here are 10 hairstyles that you can totally do by yourself. Watch the tutorials and then give them a try!


1. Low or High Bun

The bun is a great option for natural hair because it can be installed in a matter of minutes, it protects your ends from damage and the environment, and it's a classy look that never gets old. This style works on medium length hair or longer. Here's a simple tutorial.

2. Space Buns

These buns are so cute, and something different (but still simple) if you're getting tired of your daily hairstyles. This style works on medium length hair or longer.

3. Fauxhawk

This style is unbelievably cute, and you'll be shocked at how easy it is. All you'll need is a few pins! For the specific look in this tutorial you'll need long hair, but the same concept can be accomplished with much shorter hair.

4. High Puff

Tried and true, the high puff is a simple but elegant style that works well on all hair lengths and all curly hair textures. Here are two tutorials: one for short hair, and one for longer hair.

5. Classic Afro

This is a stunning style also looks great on any hair length. Give this easy tutorial a try!

6. Twist-out

The twist-out will NEVER go out of style. It's timeless. It's gorgeous. It's classy. It's fun. It works for any occasion. It's versatile (check out these styles that start with a twist-out!) Do yourself a favor and master the twist-out, because it's worth it.

7. Extensions and Clip-ins

Don't be intimidated by extensions or clip-ins. They're not as hard as they look to install, and allow you to accomplish a versatility of styles (no matter your hair length!) Here is a short video that shows a cute, simple style with clip-ins.

8. Wash N' Go

Ah, the elusive wash n' go... While it's never as simple as just washing and going, this style is relatively simple to pull off. Watch this tutorial for some tips!

9. Bantu Knots

Bantu knots aren't nearly as difficult as they look. You can rock them as is, or unravel the knots (like in this video tutorial) for a gorgeous twist-out effect. Bantu knots work on hair of any length! The shorter your hair, the smaller your knots will be (and the more knots you'll end up making.)

10. Finger Coils

Finger coils make our list of easy natural hairstyles because they are simple to install. However, be warned- this style does take a LONG time to install. Find a friend (or a couple) to help you out if your arms are getting tired. This style works on any hair length.

Finally, a bonus... here's a video of NaturAll Club's Founder and CEO, Muhga Eltigani (PictureMeNatural on Youtube), sharing the easiest of all hairstyle tutorials!

We hope these hair tutorials are helpful, whether you're new to natural hair or if you've already tried some of these styles. Here's a challenge for you: this week, try one style you've never tried before!

    I am trying to fill a gift basket for a beautiful young lady who is adopted and is not getting the proper care for her hair.
    Could someone give me a list of products for a teen to use daily to care for their hair?
    I will also be adding a gift certificate to a salon so she can get proper guidance for daily maintenance. Thank you in advance for your much needed help.

    Hi My name is Kwanda and I am 18 years with 4B/C hair.

    I’ve been natural for the past 3 years and have not seen any sort of growth whatsoever. I have a hair routine that I follow religiously every week: I apply hair food to my hairline every single night Every Sunday I apply hair food to the rest of my scalp. I would moisturize my entire scalp more often but I am still a high school student and thus don’t have enough time on my hands for that luxury.

    My hair is always wrapped in either a cotton head scarf or silk scarf. Throughout the year my hair is mostly in box braids for at the most 3 months and in Afro form for 1 month. I wash my hair in braid every 2 weeks. My mom says my hair doesn’t grow because my grandmas also doesn’t grow – implying that it’s something I’ve inherited. I’d like to believe that this can’t be true and I hope it doesn’t mean that I should give up on my hair length goals just because it’s something I’ve “inherited”
    My hair won’t even touch my shoulders – let alone my neck.

    I feel like I’m running out of options and am desperately looking for some help to give me some hope.

    Is there something I’m doing wrong ?
    Something I’m not doing ?
    Is it really just in my genes ?

    Please help me :(
