As naturals we’re always looking for easy and cute ways to style our hair. Well, at an October 2011 meetup stylist Tamika (featured yesterday) did 4 different natural hair styles (a twisted bun, flat twists all around, pompadour + bun/braid and chunky flat twists) in less than 10 minutes! The styles can be modified for a variety of lengths. Check out the video below and let us know your thoughts! What do you think of the four looks? Which one would you rock?

Note: Video sound quality isn’t great, but the styling is very clear.

Omg…loved this. My hair is finer, so I’ll have to work with this, but I’m going to try her styles!

Going to natural hairstyles…no relaxer in my hair for three years……I wear crochet braids and I am going to take them down…..Don’t know where to start or what products to use….My hair is very coarse and thick..Help!


Do you have styles for finer hair?? My hair is not thick at all!! So these do’s usually don’t work for me.

I LOVE this!!! The speed and creativity combined is just awesome. Thanks for sharing, I’m definitely inspired.

Hi, my hair is fine and its shoulder length. I am in no way a stylist and I don’t know how to do much with my hair. On top of that I’m in law school and I don’t have time to re-braid my hair every single night (which takes me about 30 minutes…I braid slow) but I want my hair to look nice. I need some suggestions on quick, CUTE, 5 minute protective styles hair I can do with my length and type of hair. I like the ones you did but they don’t work on my hair and I’ve… Read more »

I have had a great time trying some of these styles. All you have to do is wrap your hair up at night. Each style last for days. I just redo them, although, they still look great. I got my hair to grow, now I want to look cute with these great updos. Good luck


LOVED THIS!! and thanks everyone for the info on the stretchy comb!! Her edges lay down so easily it seems, does anyone have any suggestions on products to lay down edges? Anything that won’t cause too much build-up :)?


I know I’ve seen these combs at Rite Aid and thought they just get tangled in my hair. I’m gonna have to pick one up so I can give these styles a try. Only I don’t use any heat in my hair so getting that smoothness won’t be so easy.


My sister (who I encouraged to go natural & has been natural WAY less time than me haha) showed me, yesterday, how to stretch my hair out without heat. It was just sort of like bantu knotting large portions of my hair … I just stretched it out and pinned it so that when it dries the stretch is maintained without creating the texture/curl of bantu knots. I bet you can find something on Youtube about no-heat stretching!
