Consider your favorite go-to style. It is your favorite for a reason, right? It makes you feel efficient and accomplished…fantastic, even! But sometimes you want to change things up a little but are unsure of where to start. With a few simple products and some handy helpful tutorials you can create lovely styles that will make you feel dazzling. Keep in mind that kinky coily 4C hair has a higher porosity level than other hair types, which means that it soaks up moisture quickly and requires extra attention and styling time. Now, armed with that bit of knowledge all you need now are style options. We are here to help with nine alternative styles for short natural kinky curly hair. When you see this sampling of styles you will be happy to try them all.

1

Fake a Mohawk with an Easy Fro Hawk

Who doesn’t love a good fro’ hawk. It is a quick and easy fix that works well for all textures. Wear it at any time, for any occasion. Use your fingers, a rattail comb, styling gel, hairpins and fingers to secure hair in place. Mist all over then separate the coils and use gel to define the ends and add dimension.

2

Afro Bouffant with Hidden

Some mornings we are unsure of not only how to style our hair but also how to secure it. This Afro bouffant solves both issues in one go. Begin with clean, well-moisturized hair. Part carefully from ear-to-ear. Secure the front using a knee-high stocking! I would never have guessed it, but this everyday product used in an unconventional way yields cute results.

3

Roller Set for Days

A rockin’ roller set is a fabulous site to behold. The process is a little longer on 4C hair but the result is style perfection. Install this style on slightly damp clean hair. Because 4C kinky coily hair needs a longer drying time consider installing perm rods on small sections of hair to allow for maximum airflow and drying time.

4

Funky Chunky Flat Twist

A simple flat twist transforms a hairstyle in no time flat. Start with damp, not dripping wet hair. Take time to part hair and apply product to each section. Flat twist wider sections for a super chunky, full, luscious twist out. Dry thoroughly. Untwist each section and apply a thin layer of shine serum all over.

5

Super Defined Mini Two-strand Twist out

The key to a rockin’ twist out is moisture. Apply product to freshly cleansed hair making sure to maintain moisture throughout the installation process. In other words: move quickly and don’t let your hair dry out before you are done. Air-dry overnight for the best results. Do not separate coils unless your hair is completely dry.

6

Easy-peasy Twisted Sides

When I saw this style I was amazed at how simple it is to do. It combines a fresh wash-n-go with flat twisted sides for an edgy look that is great for a night out with friends. Quick and easy to install, you will be out the door in no time. I know what you’re thinking and we won’t even touch her makeup game, for now. ;)

7

Easy Bold Updo

This super easy tutorial demonstrates that allowing hair to set overnight works best to set the overall style. Lightly mist hair with water and detangle using on your fingers. Use gel to smooth and install the style. In the morning, roll and pin hair in place. This is great if you haven’t gotten the hang of two-strand twists.

8

Big Curly 'fro

I adore a well-formed Afro and this tutorial gives some of the best instructions around – start to finish, including stretching your hair for a bigger ‘fro. You and I know that the shrinkage is real; stretching helps elongate your coils to produce a voluminous style. Shape your hair then pat gel all around to set the style and enhance style.

Textured Pompadour

Now, you know how much I love a cool classy vintage pompadour. This cute textured style meets that standard. Apply a moisturizing product to clean hair then install two-strand twists all over. Allow twists to dry overnight then untwist in the morning. Use your fingers, a little natural oil and hairpins to smooth and tuck hair into place.

Natural hair is beautiful, no matter the texture. It is always wonderful to see the full range of our kinky coily curly wavy hair rockin’ all sorts of styles. Remember these three basic tips in your daily hair care - be vigilant with your moisture routine, persistent with moisture control, and dedicated to moisture retention. How do you style your hair?
