Summer is officially in full swing, and we have so many great styles options on BGLH, from tapered afros, to updos, and more. Now it is time for another summer look — curls, curls, curls!
1. Textured Updo
This updo will work beautifully for a summer wedding or other formal event. It can also be worn to the office, grocery store, or summer picnic. You will need a fresh, defined twist out to start.
Description: Fresh twist out pinned into a curly updo
Products used: Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum
Tools required: Bobby pins, clips
2. Flat Twists and Curls Updo
Here is another fun, curly updo that can be worn to a summer party, concert or picnic. For this look, you will need perm rods to create defined, shiny curls. The style is best achieved on a tapered cut.
3. Summer Waves Hairstyle
These waves are very easy and quick to create using a triple barrel waver on a low heating setting (350 degrees Fahrenheit). If you want to avoid heat usage, you can use loose braids on stretched hair to create a similar effect.
4. Defined 3‑Strand Twist Out (works on 4B/4C hair)
If regular two-strand twist outs don’t quite give you the definition you want, then this three-strand twist out may work for you. For bigger curls and a faster process, you can do bigger twists than shown in the tutorial.
5. Flexi Rod Set and Twist
This is another cute look for my naturals with shorter tresses. If you want to play up your TWA or try something other than your usual puff, then check out this tutorial!
