Avatar • Dec 9, 2014

While some of us are hairstyling pros, there are others who still scour YouTube every week trying to just make our hair look presentable. For beginners or styling novices, here is a round up of basic natural hair styling videos from the best YouTube gurus.

Two Strand Twist Out

Naptural85 pretty much revolutionized my twist out game with her fail proof method that eliminates the need to separate your hair during the takedown. If you haven’t yet seen this video or tried this method, this is a must-see!

Flat Twists

Maria Antoinette provide a very high quality, well narrated video on how to do a flat twist. Unlike many other flat twist videos, she uses big sections, which is helpful in first learning how to master the style.

Cornrows

I’ll be the first to admit that I need to watch this cornrow video about 10 more times before I can muster up enough courage to try them out on my hair. This video breaks down complicated cornrows into very straightforward steps. Start around 3:40 to skip over the long intro.

Bantu Knot Out

In this video, Chizi shows how to take stretched or blow dried kinky hair and create a tightly defined bantu knot out. Her secrets are using the right amount of product and doing minimal separating.

Roll, Tuck, and Pin

If you’ve been watching YouTube videos for a while, you know that Jenell made the roll, tuck, and pin popular. A great look for days when your twist out is lopsided or you need a quick formal do, this is a style that can be adapted in hundreds of different ways.

Have you tried curling them? My braid outs and twists out never look right either, but when I took my mom’s advice and wrapped my little braids around some hair rollers magic happened. I ended up with a big curly halo of hair that I adored. It turned out even better when I added a bit of some sort of gentle holding product(I personally an in love with Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen Grow Restore Styling Lotion. Nice smell, no build up and a little goes a long way for me). I usually just spritz some water, bad… Read more »

Actually, this is the best cornrow instruction video(s) I have ever come across: http://youtu.be/QhV4wruk8_Y

It is a 3‑video series. I haven’t been able to try it out yet since I recently chopped off my hair, and I don’t have my mannequin with me in my college dorm, but the videos are great. The technique is very clearly shown and easy to learn.
