Sum­mer is approach­ing and may­be you are a long-haired nat­u­ral in a style rut.  You are tired of putting your twists into a rou­tine bun or wash-n-gos are no longer “easy” at your length.  What­ev­er the case, you want a cute and easy style for the sea­son.  Here are three inspi­ra­tions:

1. Twist-Out with Curly Ends

In the above video, India shows you how to cre­ate a fun, curly twist-out (also known as the “twist and curl”).  She starts from a sim­ple set of twists with the ends on flexi-rods.  Watch the tuto­ri­al to see more details.

2. Sleek Tex­tured High Bun

Here, Jess demon­strates a sim­ple and cute vari­a­tion of the tra­di­tion­al bun on her nat­u­ral curls.  This tex­tured style can also be achieved on a twist-out or braid-out.

3. Chunky Flat Twist Updo

Nik shows you how to cre­ate this beau­ti­ful and easy chunky flat twist updo.  Don’t know how to flat twist?  Mod­i­fy this style with chunky two-strand twists instead.

Will you wear any of the­se styles this sum­mer?

Heya! I just want­ed to ask if you ever have any issues
with hack­ers? My last blog (word­press) was hacked and
I end­ed up los­ing many months of hard work due to no back up.

Do you have any solu­tions to stop hack­ers?


My broth­er sug­gest­ed I may like this web site. He was total­ly right. This sub­mit tru­ly made my day. You can not believe just how a lot time I had spent for this info! Thank you!


WOW just what I was search­ing for. Came here by search­ing for long hair

I love Mahogany­Curls chan­nel she’s beau­ti­ful


I am pret­ty sure for the curly twist out look, the wom­an fea­tured is named India. One of her younger sis­ters is named Car­men, I believe the youngest one.


Agreed. That’s India.


I just got back from a birth­day vaca­tion to Hawaii and I rocked some wavy corn­rows. I think I’ll keep my hair inpro­tec­tive styles every oth­er mon­th to help my hair grow out. I’ll be able to do more wet and goes that way. Keep the heat out.


Def­i­nite­ly gonna try Nik’s updo. it’s cute :)


Thanks so much for the fea­ture Chin­we & BGLH! *hugs*


So Nik, I tried your style. My hair = not as long nor as thick as yours, so I made one big twist for the bun.

At least I know that I can do this style, so as my hair gets longer, it’s on! Lol

Thanks again for post­ing this one :)

I love this hair­style, Nik! My hair isn’t as long as yours, and like­ly not as thick, but I feel like I have enough to attempt it, lol. If it works out, I will post a pic­ture here. Thank you for putting it out there!
