Find­ing styles for 4B/4C hair can be dif­fi­cult due to the nature of our tight coils (or lack of coils) AND incred­i­ble shrink­age.  These four youtu­bers can hope­ful­ly pro­vide some inspi­ra­tion for those who are in rut with styling their 4B/4C strands:

1. Chic Twists

In this tuto­r­i­al, Zarah demon­strates a super easy updo with just three big twists on stretched hair.  This style can be done on medi­um to long 4B/4C hair or mod­i­fied for short­er hair.

2. Cute Updo

MyFroan­dITV works her short nat­ur­al hair beau­ti­ful­ly in the above tuto­r­i­al.  She shows view­ers how to do a very unique and love­ly updo on stretched 4B/4C hair.  Do check out the rest of her chan­nel for her “30 Days, 30 Updos” series fea­tur­ing many beau­ti­ful styles on her hair.

3. Side­swept Twistout

In the above video, Chery818 demon­strates an effort­less­ly beau­ti­ful twist-out done on damp 4B/4C hair.  The style can be done on short, medi­um, or long hair and yields amaz­ing def­i­n­i­tion.

4. Heat­less Blowout

Nat­u­ralMe4C shows how to do a “heat­less blowout” via band­ing on short­er 4B/4C hair.  This sounds inter­est­ing, right?  Check it out in the above video.

Ladies, have you tried any of these styles?
