13 Natural Hair Trends You Must Try
November 20th, 2019 by Diana Ross
There are so many hair trends to choose from across the internet, but only a handful of them are real must-haves. Some of these trends may require you to get a haircut. If you agree to get one, make sure you opt for a professional with high-grade scissors like the ones from Scissor Tech Australia.
To make deciding a hairstyle easier, we have compiled a list of 13 natural trends you absolutely must try.
- The Slicked Back Wet Hair Look
There’s no better way to show off your natural after-shower hair than with the slicked back wet look. This style is best worn on short to mid-length hair. All you need is a generous helping of non-damaging hair gel and a wide-tooth comb!
To achieve the look, start by combing your hair. The style works best with straight hair, so keep a flat iron handy in case your hair needs to be straightened out. Next, apply hair gel. Start at the roots and work your way down to the tips.
Then, flatten your hair using your hands but leave the scalp area. Follow up with a wide-toothed comb to accentuate the roots and pull back and stray hairs. Voila! Your slicked back wet hair look is ready.
You can’t go wrong with a cute cut featuring bangs. Bangs look especially endearing on short hair and go with most hair textures. A great example of a hairstyle featuring bangs on short hair is New Girl star, Zooey Deschanel.
Though traditionally worn with shoulder-length styles, bangs look great on people with long, flowing hair, too! Our personal favorite is an actress and body-positive activist, Jameela Jamil’s look.
Whether it’s with long, mid-length, or short hair, bangs may just be the secret hair accessory you never knew you needed!
- Natural Curls
Believe us when we say natural curls are a blessing. There is minimal styling required for this look, and you can go au naturel with it. Curly hair works everywhere. Whether you wear them to a date or at the office, you’re bound to look like a stunner!
- The Pixie Cut
Pixie cuts are styles that require minimal maintenance. They’ll take care of themselves for the most part. With a pixie cut, you can wear your hair naturally without the need to straighten or curl it. Just tame your hair by combing it or simply running your fingers through it, and you’re good to go!
- Asymmetrical Side-Swept Afro
The afro is a powerful statement in the world of hair and fashion. Afros glow with power and feminine energy, not to mention that they serve as an ode to African culture. If you have been gifted with the natural ability to maintain an afro, go for it! It doesn’t get better than that.
For an asymmetrical side-swept look, gather all your hair towards one side of your head and create a collection of stylish side braids to keep excess hair from falling over to the wrong side.
Tie your hair up in a linen headscarf, or let it hang loose and cover it up with a silk one for a classic, retro look. Headscarves come in many fun, fashionable, and flirty styles. Find one that matches your personal style and go wild!
- Long Layers
You’ve seen this look time and again, but modern stylists can never seem to grow tired of it. Long layers bring back memories of the hippy days while retaining their timeless classic edge. This style is unarguably a fashion staple you can flaunt anywhere!
- Super Short Bob
This carefree style features floaty, lightweight hair that ends just below the ears. The super-short bob is ideal for women with wavy or straight hair. The exact cut will depend on your face structure, but there is a version of this style for everyone!
- Box Braids
Box braids are best when worn on mid-length or long hair, allowing for true creative freedom. This hairstyle is not only chic, but it’ll also protect your hair from dirt. You may not be able to carry this hairstyle if your hair is weak and brittle, for example, through over-dying. If that’s the case, think about skipping this style.
- 10.One-Length Blunt Bob
The one-length blunt bob is an exciting contrast to the classic messy bob trend. This fashionable hairdo boasts the sharpness of modern looks while maintaining the soft femininity of the timeless bob.
- 11.Mermaid Tresses
This style may sound fancy, but it’s incredibly easy to achieve if you have the patience and time. Made famous by Kim Kardashian, the super-long mermaid tresses fad requires minimal routine trimming every six weeks to keep hair healthy and glowing.
- 12.Effortless Chop
An effortless chop is a messier take on a regular shortening haircut. In this style, hair is cut off at the jawline to amplify its sharp cut. This is a wonderful style to wear, as it requires minimal maintenance.
- 13.Soft Bowl Cut
When we think of bowl cuts, unappealing pictures flash in our minds. Never fear, though. The soft bowl cut comes nothing close to unpleasant. The cut is short from the back, almost like a pixie, and features an eyebrow-skimming fringe.
With an array of styles to choose from, don’t be afraid to flaunt your natural hair this season! Whether it’s a classy bob cut or a timeless layered look, pick a style that you love and flaunt it everywhere!
