Top 10 Natural Hairstyles that’ll Give You a Gorgeous Look

Before I joined the natural hair gang, I used to worry a lot. If it wasn’t how I’d manage the pains that come with combing natural hair, then it was worrying about the perfect natural hairstyles that would suit me.

Finally, I transitioned into the naturalista gang and it’s been a slow yet steady growth — thanks to my hair’s growth phase. But do you know the funny thing about me and my hair?

I wear hair extensions once in a while. I’d rather rock my natural hair in the form of cornrows and slip on my wig. And if I don’t wanna wear a wig, I’d simply braid my hair into one of the best natural hairstyles

If you’re like me, I’m pretty sure you need coiffures that’ll get everyone else jealous about your natural hair. And if that’s the case, you have nothing to worry about because you’re in the right place.

In this piece are ten natural hairstyles that’ll get you embracing your natural hair more than ever.

Sit tight and keep reading. You’ll find the perfect hairstyle once you do as I say. So, let’s get started.

What are Natural Hairstyles?

No long talks. Natural hairdos are coiffures that look good on your natural hair without (or with) hair extensions. Although some of these hairstyles are suitable for relaxed hair, they look better with virgin hair.

10 Gorgeous Natural Hairstyles for You

Whether you’re a beginner or pro in the world of natural hair, we all need go-to styles to enhance our beauty every day.

And if you make the right choice, these hairstyles will not only enhance your beauty; they’ll also protect your hair and boost its growth.

Here are the best of them:

1.  Buns

For this, you don’t need to manipulate your hair into braids. You simply moisturize or wash your hair, add any natural oil to seal it, and then use your rubber band or ribbon to pack your hair into a bun.

This style is a great option to flaunt your facial features, especially your forehead. It’s also great for keeping your hair entirely off your face.

2. Twaid-out

This style is a combination of braids and twists. To achieve it, you start by braiding your hair then twist it down to the bottom.

It’s a beautiful hairdo. It also gives you the straight look of box braids and the curly look of twists.

3. High Puff

This style is popular amongst naturalistas and it’s simple to achieve. It is also similar to the bun. Moreover, it’s the perfect style for flaunting the density and length of your hair.

4. Twist-Out

I love this style because it involves creating a protective hairstyle then loosening it to create a gorgeous look. In other words, you twist and untwist.

To achieve the twist-out style, after applying the necessary hair products on your hair and combing it, you section your hair and braid it into twists.

Afterward, you loosen each twist and roll the curls around your fingers to get rid of tangles or frizz.


Your twist-out hairdo is ready to be served.

5. Flat Twists

The difference between flat twists and cornrows is that when achieving flat twists, you twist your hair flat to your scalp, rather than braid it.

6. Classic Afro

Our grandmothers used to rock this hairdo back then when natural hair was a normal thing rather than a trend.

Afro is quite simple to achieve, and if you have the type 4 hair, it’ll look gorgeous on you.

7. Bounce Twists

This style is similar to twists. The major difference is that the twists are curlier and they stretch when you pull them, thus giving you a bouncy appeal.

8. Finger Coils

I must warn you— this style takes some time to achieve. And if you wouldn’t like to expend the energy doing it yourself, ask a friend to help you out.

Nonetheless, finger coils are superb natural hairstyles. You achieve this style by wrapping strands of your hair around your finger. And the results? Tight, bouncy coils in your hair!

Regardless of your natural hair type, you’ll look beautiful wearing this hairdo. In addition, you can take it to work, parties, or anywhere you’d like.

9. Simple Cornrows

Cornrows are the classic hairstyles for natural hair. They are easy to achieve and give you room to wear a wig if you want.

You can rock a shuku, straight, didi, zigzag, or other cornrow hairstyles. It all depends on what you want.

10. Clip-in Hair Extensions

If you don’t wanna braid your hair with hair extensions or install weaves on your hair, you can opt for clip-in extensions.

These are hair extensions that come with clips. They are easy, go-to styles. You only have to wash your hair, apply your products, comb it, and attach your clip-in extensions to your hair.

This style adds more volume to your natural hair. You can achieve it with or without braiding your hair underneath.

And that’s a wrap!

So, there you have it— the ten natural hairstyles that’ll keep you gorgeous for life. Now go ahead and jump on your favorite among them. You can also add beads and other hair accessories to further adorn your hair.

Writing has always been a part of me. From writing stories as a young child to studying Communication Arts in the university, it has always been more than a medium of expression to me.

And then one day, I found myself toeing the path of an entrepreneur and becoming a fashion enthusiast. This made me develop an interest in content marketing and copywriting which I've been chasing alongside my fashion career.

That aside, when I'm not sharing style articles, selling with stories, or creating fashion-forward pieces for Ria Kosher, you'll find me telling wild stories that always come with a twist.
