Do you get tired of changing up your look depending on where you are going? Here are five protective styles that you can wear for almost any occasion:
1. Vintage Tuck
If you are a fan of Geri’s blog, Geraldine the Great, then you know that she has some serious styling creativity when it comes to natural hair. She has recently been sharing more on YouTube, and this vintage tuck is just one of them. Simple and chic, the look can be worn for almost any occasion.
2. Twisted Knot Protective Style
Naptural85 (or Whitney) is best known for her gorgeous, defined twist outs and curl sets, but she also does some nice protective styles. This one is super cute for school, the office, lounging, or working out.

Products used: Homemade shea butter cream, edge control gel, water
Tools required: Brush (optional), wide-tooth comb, clip
3. Big Easy Bun (on Fine 4C Hair)
I know my fine-haired 4C naturals sometimes feel neglected when it comes to style posts, so here is one for you all. The secret to the fullness of this look is working with very loosely twisted sections to create the illusion of thick hair. Check out the tutorial for more details and tricks.
4. Pinned Mini Twists on Tapered Fro
Now this protective style is great for those who have a tapered fro and/or in the between stage. Though it is on the edgy side, it can still work for many occasions given how you play it up or down. Alternatively, you can let the twists hang for a simpler, semi-protective look.
5. Textured Upside Down French Braided Bun
NaturalNeiicey was inspired by TheChicNatural to created this textured version of the upside down french braided bun. You can start from a twist out, braid out, or your natural curls, but be sure your hair was priorly detangled well so that the french braiding process goes easier.

Tools required: Wide-tooth comb
