5 Cute and Easy Protective Styles for the Winter

For some naturals, winter (if not fall) is the season to begin protective styling.  Well here are five quick and cute looks to get you started.

1. Milkmaid Twists

For this look, Jess starts with two side ponytails on stretched hair.  Then she twists each ponytail and pins them around her crown.  That’s it!

2. Double Twisted Bun

This style is an old favorite of mine from Ambrosia.  The look is achieved by creating side flat twists into a bun.  Check it the tutorial for more details. 

3. Side Updo with a Faux Bang

In this video, Nik begins by rolling and pinning up the back.  Then she does a few twists in the front to create a swoop bang. All you need are bobby pins for this simple look.

4. Diagonal Flat Twists

LoveMaiCurls

LoveMaiCurls starts with stretched hair to achieve this style.  She then does diagonal parting followed by two big flat twists that are eventually pinned in the back.  Do check out her tutorial!

5. Vintage Pin Up on Medium Twists

For those of you who will be wearing twists (or braids), Helecia demonstrates a really cute updo in the above video.  Your twists do not have to be small or long at all.  She works with medium-sized short twists.

Ladies, will you be trying any of these protective styles this winter?

LOVE Helecia’s pin ups with twists!!! The fact that her hair is not super long makes the final product even more amazing and beautiful to me!!

My hair has a lot of growing to do before I can rock any of these styles. My hair is about 7 inches long and awkward.

Lahblooplah, I think you would be able to pull off Helecia’s style with the length you have. You should give it a try:-)

Yea, most of these would look ridiculous on my low density hair. More like the skim milkmaid.

Try these styles with marley braiding hair. I tried the the milkmaid twists and the diagonal flat twist. Sorry I don’t have pictures :/

Yeah, I get how you feel. If my hair was already that long, it means that I’ve survived enough winters as a natural to know what to do with my hair in winter. I’m not saying that they shouldn’t share their nice hairstyles, but Imho all this does for me is create hair envy for most of the populace yet to get there.
Methinks any winter styles for short and the awkward stages of hair would be more appreciated.

I love the milkmaid twists. I just don’t have enough length for them yet! The diagonal flat twists are usually my go to style.

I don’t really understand French, but I know enough about romance languages in general to know this is a troll. BLGH, what’s up with the bots?
