After wear­ing pro­tec­tive braids and twists dur­ing the cool­er months, some of us like to change up our look dur­ing the warmer months, and this can be a chal­lenge for those with short to medi­um-length nat­u­ral hair.  Below are four inspi­ra­tional looks to spice up your style rou­tine:

1. Spring Tex­tured Updo 

The “tex­tured updo” is a super fun look for the warmer months and also easy to do.  Watch Iknowl­ee demon­strate how to achieve this look in the above video tuto­ri­al.

2. Dou­ble Twist­ed Bun

The “dou­ble twist­ed bun” is a sim­ple yet cute style to try, espe­cial­ly on a bad hair day.  In this video, Ambrosia illus­trates how to cre­ate the do, which can be mod­i­fied for short­er hair.

3. Fake Tapered Cut

If you want to com­plete­ly change your look but do not want to reach for the scis­sors, try the fake tapered hair­cut shown in the above video.  Chelsey demon­strates how to achieve this edgy look with lit­tle effort … and no scis­sors.

4. Ele­gant Updo

This style will work beau­ti­ful­ly and eas­i­ly on medi­um-length nat­u­ral hair.  Lat­i­fa­tu­mi shows you how to work from strands that have been stretched via twists or braids into this ele­gant updo.

Ladies, will you try any of the­se styles?

My hair is to short and it makes me look like a boy for any of the­se styles


Style #1 has been on my reper­toire for months now and I luv it!! I usu­al­ly put my hair in 2 big flat twists when I am feel­ing lazy, so I will try the stlye #2 as a vari­a­tion.


Any infor­ma­tion on locs? I’ve been check­ing out this site for awhile not and no one men­tons locks. where the prob­lem?????


LOVE style #4!!! If I could ever get the hang of flat twist­ing I would wear this style all day ever day! I do a vari­a­tion of it now, but I like this style bet­ter.


I am lov­ing that first style! So cute!


The styles are beau­ti­ful but the­se nat­u­rals don’t have short hair. I just see medi­um-length.


I love style #3. It is per­fect for the work place! It is easy, neat, and pro­fes­sion­al! i need a wee bit more hair though. Now, who said our nat­u­ral hair isn’t ver­sa­tile?! #girlplease­work­it!

#2 Dou­ble Twist­ed Bun and #4 Ele­gant Updo for sure. Always look­ing for new ideas.


I’ve been doing style num­ber 4 for years (the ele­gant updo) for years. Instead of a twist though I do a french braid down the side and then I put it into a cute side bun on the oppo­site side of my head where I start­ed the braid! I think the braid and side bun look younger and more fun/cute. I would wear the one in the video to a job inter­view or work or some­thing but I would wear my ver­sion for a night out or just for a casu­al day!


I have my hair in style #4 (the ele­gant updo) right now — it’s my go-to hair­do for work.


My hair is too short I think for the major­i­ty of the styles. Oh Well.


just add pieces..that’s what i do.
