Are you bored with your current look? Here are five ways to switch up your natural hair style this spring!
1. Half Up Half Down
The “half up, half down” style is making a comeback in a big way — particularly in the natural hair community. I’ve always thought this style was cute and now have a reason to re-incorporate it into my options. It is a super cute style for the spring, and this tutorial shows how to achieve it.
2. Fluffy Finger Coils (on short or tapered fro)
If you are bored with your puff, afro, or twist-outs, try this beautiful finger coil style for the spring. It can take about three to four hours to do but lasts weeks! For a fuller look, you can separate some of the finger coils once dry. Then every morning, all you have to do is fluff and go!
3. Hanging Bantu Knot Out
For those who are bantu-knot-out challenged, this alternative is a great way to achieve a similar look. To get the “hang” effect, you essentially start with regular twists and ONLY bantu knot the ends. Definitely check out this tutorial for a quick demonstration of the styling process.

4. Perm Rodded Mini Twists
So you want to wear your mini twists this spring, but you don’t want to succumb to boredom. Well, one way to switch up your style this season is to do a rod set on your twists. This tutorial that follows is one of the best that I’ve seen on the style!

Tools needed: perm rods (pink and white)
5. Twisted Pin Curls (with added hair)
Spice up your your color and/or add some length all while switching up your twist style. To achieve this look, you can use Marley hair in your natural color or a different shade. You also don’t have to be the perfect twister or parter because you will ultimately pin up the sections for the final look.
