While braids are a great idea for a protective style, they are not your only option. A twist-out produces beautiful spiral curls without heat, and it’s extremely versatile. Leave some twists in the back and loose curls in the front for a fancy “pineapple” updo that’s full and flirty.
Natural roots and tightly curled tips offer a classy ‘do with two textures. For such a short length, it’s definitely success. Also Bantu knots on natural hair are a great hairstyle when you are growing your curls. The transitioning hair that is neither short nor long enough can look awkward when undone, while being knotted, it make a classy hairstyle.
Crochet braids, also sometimes called latch hook braids. They are typically made from synthetic hair extensions looped through your natural hair (braided into cornrows). Crochet twists are another form of the same concept, only they’re twists, instead of braids. While they take some time and patience to create, once they’re done, they can be styled in a variety of ways — piled on top of your head, pulled back, in a ponytail, or just loose. When you decide to take them out, you can wear your hair naturally.
Whatever natural hair texture you have, twist braids are a gorgeous alternative to regular braids. Instead of a regular braid which uses 3 sections of hair, a twist braid uses 2 sections of hair. The “twist” part comes in because each section is twisted on its own before it's twisted around the other section.
