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.

LOVe these styles…going to exper­i­ment now :o)


Nice! I don’t think I can pull off a pom­padour but all the oth­er styles I’d love to try. Thanks for shar­ing this!


Her styles are cute and quick if you have the length. She is love­ly and I love her hair col­or.

I am VERY impressed with her cre­ativ­i­ty! I real­ly enjoyed watcht­ing those easy do’s. I can say that I am the “Get up and Go” type of girl when it comes to man­ag­ing my hair espe­cial­ly hav­ing a very busy life. I just want­ed to know, where can I find that hair black comb piece that Tami­ka used in each one of her demos? That was a great sig­na­ture piece for each style and I would def­i­nite­ly like to use it!

I just bought my upz­ing from CVS. That’s what it’s called. I’ve also seen them at Wal-Mart. About $6. I got the large size in black, but they also have medi­um sizes. I plan to get the medi­um one to at some point. HTH!


Wow! You and your hair are gor­geous. I def­i­nite­ly can­not do a wash-n-go, but yous looks love­ly!


She is a hair maven. I’d rock all of those syles. Laila Jean of Fusion on Cul­tures has a nice array of hair­styles as well.

Thank you so much! We have to share the wealth when it comes to hair vic­to­ries! Beau­ti­ful girl with beau­ti­ful head of hair.I must find that stretchy comb thing! It looks amaz­ing! Hey BGLH could you do a post on NATURAL HAIR TOOLS MUST-HAVES. From wide tooth combs to that stretchy comb thing. I think that would be so help­ful to us naturelles.


I bought one of those stretchy comb things recent­ly, b/c MsVCharles on youtube used it in one of her videos. They sell them at Wal­mart and some Tar­gets, but I got mine online from:
I pre­fer those to the bead­ed “EZ combs” because they don’t stick to and snag the hair. Hope this helps! :-)


Anoth­er com­pa­ny called HairZ­ing also makes them, just google the name. You can over­lap two as well like shown in the pic. They also have dec­o­ra­tions on some to add abit more oomph to your styles!

I remem­ber it was on infomer­cials a few years ago, but now they sell it in stores. I’ve seen them in Rite-Aid in the hair acces­so­ry aisle. I can’t remem­ber the name of the prod­uct, though. Sor­ry.

I was just ask­ing the same ques­tion! ;) lol
