Trends always repeat themselves. Here’s a look at some hairstyles that are being repeated and taken over beautifully by naturals!
Let’s start with most obvious trend: box braids! This is one style that is certainly not new. Our ancestors have been rocking braids for years, but the box braid craze can best be identified with the early 90s. Fast forward to the present, box braids are a naturalista’s go to protective style. This one beautiful trend that is here to stay and I love it!
The Double Bun
Spice Girl Melanie B. aka Scary Spice vs. Blogger Yomi
This hairstyle had its most popular run in the early 2000s. The double bun became extinct until recently. I am not quite sure when this hairstyle resurfaced but I am certainly not even mad at it. Now I understand this is a style not everyone may be comfortable rocking, but when it is rocked right it is everything!
Half up Half down bun
Now this is one hairstyle I remember my mother sending me to school with and I certainly don’t blame her for it. This style is so quick and easy! It will turn any failed attempted hairstyle into something great. You can do this style with your own hair or you can even wear it with braids, locs and twists!
Last but certainly not least: the pompadour aka the life saver. This is one old school hairstyle that everyone is familiar with. Best known and identified with people in the 1950s. The pompadour was sound asleep until a certain someone woke her back up. You guessed right, Janelle Monae put her remix on this style and has been rocked by beautifully by naturals across the world.
Are there any old school styles that you’ve seen naturals rock in present-day?
