Natural hair is so hot right now, and we don’t see this trend slowing up anytime soon. Even big name magazines have celebrated the natural stylings of Solange, Ledisi, and Lupita Nyong’o on their glossy covers – and this was all in recent weeks!
By now, we all know the myth of natural hair being easier to maintain is far from true; but we’re still loving the look no matter how long the prep work takes. From what we can tell, the effort is all worth it.
But let’s face it, some of us are still not quite ready for that sort of commitment. Some of us still appreciate a good relaxer and a down-to-there weave. And frankly, some of us are just too darn afraid to make the big chop!
Whatever the case may be, we can all breathe a sigh of relief in knowing that there are plenty of alternatives out there for all those interested in venturing – even partially – into the natural hair world.
Wigs come in every color and length there is, but they also come in every shape in texture as well. This is a quick an easy option for anyone who just wants to give the ‘fro a try. Go all out with an eye-catching creation that’s larger than life, or start small with a more subtle, forehead-brushing style that will ease you right into the real thing.
For something a little more permanent, try a full sew-in natural weave instead. Sew-in afros and curls are super convenient, and will only require a great cut for shaping at the end. Plus there’s a little something comforting about knowing your ‘fro is securely on your head no matter how crazy life might get.
Braids, whether micro or box, are both trendy and fab. They’re also a great way to get a natural look without a full-on commitment. The look is a long-lasting one that provides you with tons of styling options from buns to more intricate up-dos and beyond. If ever there was a perfect time for this look, now is it!
One thing’s for sure: natural hair, both real and faux, is here to stay! And there’s no time like the present to try something new.
