7 Hairstyles for Every Day of Kwanzaa

For those of you not familiar, think of Kwanzaa as the antidote to Christmas. Instead of cramming all the goodwill into one night and morning/day, Kwanzaa paces out the celebrations and asks you to reflect inward and actively give back. Yes, there are gifts, but you’re expected to do more than make sure your order arrives on time. The seven principles of Kwanzaa are open for interpretation, as are the looks. To help kick off this holiday, we’re bringing you all the Kwanzaa hairstyles to wear on every day of the festivities.

Add a Flower

Tie your hair up and weave a holiday party floral to kick off the festivities of Umoja (Unity).

Braid It Through

Dress up a braid by weaving through colored strings and any other ornate decoration to celebrate the principal of Nia (Purpose).

Protective Style

Go ahead, try on whatever look you want. And be done with it by the time the time the candle burns out with a protective wig style, like this one by Mayvenn. It’s a great way to show your Kuumba (Creativity).
