4 Chic Back-to-School Styles for Natural Hair

• Aug 30, 2015

School is about to start (or has already started) and you want a style that is simple and chic while putting most of your hair away.  Well, keep on reading because we have five looks worth trying!

1. Rocker Chic Updo

Nicole Webster

Would you describe your sense of style as rocker or edgy? If so, check out this look by Nicole Webster.  She begins with hair that has been blown-out, but you can easily modify the look for stretched tresses.  What’s more? The style only takes ten minutes to achieve!

Description: Hair is braided on the sides with tucked-in chignon.
Products used: Jireh edge control, moisturizer, Nexxus hair spray (for hold)

Tools needed: Wide-tooth comb, clips, bobby pins, boar bristle brush

2. Boss Bang ‘N Twisted Knot


Next up is this boss look by TheChicNatural.  Can you believe she created this style by solely twisting?  No perm rods, curlers, or special styling tools needed beyond your basic comb and clips.

Description: Hair is flat twisted and twisted into a low bun while the front is left out as a twist out bang.
Products used: Gel, water
Tools needed: Rattail comb (for parting), hair ties, clips, bobby pins

3. Twisted Bun Updo


You can never go wrong with the twisted bun updo. This style may look intricate but is really easy and quick to create.  Donedo starts from old hair, so there is no need to prep for this look.

Description: Hair is pulled into a puff and loosely twisted into bun.
Products used: Leave-in conditioner
Tools needed: Brush, hair tie (e.g., stocking), wide-tooth comb

4. Flat Twist Updo

Millicent Swift

This look requires a bit more skill and time, but once it is complete it is gorgeous and simple to maintain.  Millicent Swift continues to bring it with her protective styles, especially her twisted ones! If you are challenged when it comes to flat twisting, then recruit a friend who can create this look for you.

Description: Hair is twisted and flat twisted pinned into an updo.
Products used: Eco Styler Olive Oil Gel, SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie

Tools needed: Clips, rattail comb (for parting), extra mirror, bobby pins
