You don’t need to be a biker chick to rock badass natural hairstyles this summer! We’ll take any excuse to let our natural texture shine, which is why we plan on ditching relaxed tresses for our curlier counterparts. Case in point, we’ve rounded up our cool-girl-approved hairstyles for ample summer inspo. Below, you’ll find the best natural summer hairstyles to sport all season long.
Wild Faux Hawk
Give your curls free rein to do as they please with this faux hawk style. It’s a great way to keep them off your face during the hot summer days while also showcasing how gorgeous they are.
Bantu knots are all the rage this season, as far as natural summer hairstyles go. They’re fairly easy to create and work for any length. Plus, you can put your own twist on them, making them all your own. No two Bantu knot styles are ever the same.
An undercut is a great way to experiment with your style, while also being able to hide it when you tire of it. With your hair likely being up a lot this summer, use this time to try out an intricate undercut design.
Add a pop of color to your natural summer hairstyles this season by dyeing your ends. Even using a temporary color will work.
Perhaps no natural hairstyle screams summer quite like the classic beaded twists. You can even adorn your twists with seashells to really get into the spirit of the season. And, also, to become a real-life mermaid.
For days when you can’t decide if you want to wear your hair up or down, go with the half-up knot look. You can do this with twists, cornrows, or even your natural ringlets.
Show off all that growth with a full-volume natural hairstyle this summer. Pick out your afro to really let it shine.
