The “puff” is a super simple, go-to summer style for many naturals. Most of us – if not all of us – have worn it at some point in our natural hair journey. Nevertheless, sometimes the style can get a bit bland, but don’t fret. Here are some ways to spice up your puff!
1. Big Kinky Curly Puff for Short/Medium-length Natural Hair
In the above tutorial, India (from Mynaturalsistas) shows you how to get your puff to look so big and full on short or medium-length natural hair. She starts from a defined twist out, picks out the root, and pulls out some tendrils. Watch the video for details!
2. Pony Puff and Bang
Now, if you want to spice up your puff, check out this tutorial by Msbrightlights93. The style is essentially a puff on top with a side-swept rolled bang. Start from hair stretched via big braids or twists.
3. “Puff” with a Scarf
In the above tutorial, TheChicNatural starts from an old, smooshed flexi rod set, but you can just as easily start from a twist out, wash-n-go, etc. All you will need a cute summery hair scarf and a little gel. That’s it!
4. Mega High Puff
Ashley demonstrates how to create a mega high puff in the above video. Like the top knot bun is to the classic bun, so is the mega high puff to the usual puff. This is a great spin on the style.
5. High Side Puff and Pompadour
In the above tutorial, She’kia demonstrates another way to spice up your puff. She shows you how to create her signature high side puff with a pompadour using an elastic hair band, gel, and a few bobby pins.
6. Textured Side Puff with a Flower
For this gorgeous style, SimplyCin starts from old “drab” afro, but you can recreate it on stretched hair as well. This textured side puff requires little effort and few tools (elastic hair band, Eco Styler Gel, water, brush, and a cute flower). The style is a great way to extend your wash day an extra day or two.
7. Simple Puff With a Twist
Watch this tutorial by xosimplyellexo if you want more of an elegant take on the style. She demonstrates how to create a puff in back with a side flat twist along the front. The look is very easy to do!
How are you wearing your puff this summer?
