The “in-between” stage is infamous for being that period at which your natural hair is not exactly super short but also not long enough to achieve certain styles … hence, the name “in-between”. The following tutorials are for naturals who are in that stage and have hit a styling rut:
1. Defined Straw Set
This style can be achieved with straws and your favorite setting product. Start on freshly washed wet hair.

2. Fro Hawk with Flat-Twisted Sides
For this edgy look, the hair is flat twisted on the sides and twisted in the center. On the next day, the twists in the center are released to create this “fro” hawk.
3. High Twisted Bun starting from a Puff
Your hair does not need to fit into a ponytail to create this bun. Starting from a high puff, the loose hair is twisted and then morphed into a bun.
4. Textured High Bun with Bangs Pinned Back
For this sophisticated look, start with your natural curls or coils in a ponytail leaving out the front section. Then use a few bobby pins to pin down a few curls and the front section.
5. Bubble Curl Bun
This style is done on flat-ironed natural hair but can work on hair that has been stretched via rollers, banding, or blow drying.
Ladies, will you try any of these styles?
