49 Best Easy Natural Hairstyles ...

By Jess


Ever get frustrated with your hair? We all know that hairstyles can be time-consuming and costly, but don't worry! We're here to explain some easy natural hairstyles for you.


Some easy hairstyles that take little to no time are as simple as braiding or bun. Braids can be accomplished with a single braid or by braiding several smaller braids together. If you're not sure how you should make your hair look, try styling it with a bun. This is a quick and easy way to have the appearance of hair that is pulled back and held in place by elastic bands, making it look more sophisticated than messy fly-aways. Buns come in many different styles, but the most popular one is called an inverted bobbed bun which includes two plaits hanging down (like clip-on bangs), and one tucked underneath (the rest of the hair).

1 Wash-and-Go Hairstyle

Haircuts and hairstyles are very much a personal choice, so you can choose to style your hair however you please. But there’s one styling technique you must be careful with: the Wash-and-Go. It is essentially a low maintenance way to style your hair with just water.

2 Jumbo Topknot Hairstyle

In college, some people like to experiment with their hair. A few of my fellow students sported jumbo topknots at one point or another, as did I. Though these hairstyles can be fun, they take a lot of time and effort to maintain during a busy week.

4 Bantu Knots Hairstyle

Bantu knots are a style of hair that enhances the natural beauty of a woman's head by weaving in large sections with different colors. It can be both woven into small braids, or single-strand plaits. A braid can take just as long or even longer to complete than the hairstyle itself but it is well worth the time spent getting it right. The hairstyle originates from South Africa and is popular worldwide due to its unique appearance, which combines African and European elements.

5 Twist-Out Hairstyle

A twist-out hairstyle is one of the old-school ways of rockin’ natural hair. It’s an easy way to transition between wash and go styles without having to put products in (especially if you use a water-based moisturizer).

To do a twist-out, after washing, drying, and detangling your hair, take sections of your hair in dime dime sized sections at the root. Then braid each section until you reach the end. Once it's braided all the way down, unravel or undo it into larger twists that are about 2 inches in length. Secure with an elastic band before twisting again into smaller sections that are about ¾ inch in length.

6 Braid-Out Hairstyle

The braid-out hairstyle is a very common, easy, and versatile way to rock your natural hair. Once you learn how to braid your hair, you can do a braid out for any occasion--from formal to casual. To do a braid-out, after washing and drying your hair, detangle it and divide it into four sections. Take 1/3 of the amount of hair in the leftmost section and add it to the rightmost section until each section has equal amounts of hair. Braid each section with cornrows from one side of your head to the other. Then undo each braid into smaller braids that are about 2 inches in length.

7 Curl Formers Hairstyle

A curl-former is a very unique and versatile hairstyle that is meant to give you bigger curls and more volume. Once you learn how to properly curl hair, your hair will respond so well and will be so bouncy that you’ll wonder why you haven’t done this in the past!

To do a curl formers, after washing and detangling your natural hair, divide it into four sections. Take three of these sections in the front when working with each section. Apply coconut oil or an oil (only if it won't make your hair greasy) to each section, gently massage into each section while separating with your hands.

8 Water Wave Magic Curlers Hairstyle

Although this is not the conventional type of roller that you can use for the water wave hairstyle, this is a variation of the water wave that comes out so well for some people. To do this you need to have fine, or thin hair to get good results from them.

You need to have flexible micro beads, these are sold at any beauty supply store. You will also need some setting lotion (you can make your own setting lotion). Put a tiny amount in your hands and rub between both hands, apply only the tiniest amount of water to each bead, roll the bead onto each section of hair (about ½ inch away from scalp) while applying pressure with your fingers at first and then let go.

9 Perm Rods Hairstyle

A perm rod is used to set permanent hair, or in this case, natural hair. It helps create separation between the texture of your hair and make it smoother and straighter.

To do a perm rods you need to have very soft, or fine natural hair. After washing and detangling your hair, secure a section of your hair. Curl it with a curling iron and then let it down. Separate the curl by combing it out in the back of your head with a large pick comb or using another type of brush that has a wide barrel (about 12 inches). Then apply the lotion to each section and push into it (only if needed).

10 Roller Set Hairstyle

Although this is a very common, easy and simple way to do your hair, it’s a good alternative for you to try if you’re tired of using heat on your hair. If you have thin or fine hair and you want more volume, this is the best kind of roller set to do.

To do a roller set, after washing, detangling and blow-drying your hair with a blow dryer with diffuser attachment, section your hair into four sections (two in the front and two in the back). Place the roller towards the ends of each section while making sure that you don’t put too many rollers on your head.
