by Ijeoma of Klassy Kinks

It’s fun to borrow style tips from the opposite gender, from boyfriend jeans and fedoras to blazers and wing-tipped oxfords. Naturalistas are increasingly turning to the fellas for haircut and hairstyle inspirations. Check out these women who are doing things “like a boy” and slaying it!

The Buzz Cut

This is the quintessential men’s haircut and is often worn by women who do a real (very low to the scalp) big chop. These women have made it their signature style for it’s classic vibe and low maintenance properties.

The Deep Part

Bold and beautiful naturals who rock low cuts with deep parts cut in take a cue from guys who get razor sharp parts cut into their shape ups. To fake it, use hair clips to hold down your part after wetting and detangling your hair.

The High-Top Fade

Popularized by Kid n Play in the 80s, the high top fade is back in style again for both men and women. Naturalistas make the style more exciting with added width and texture.

Fro-Hawk/Mohawk

Borrowed from rock band members, the fro-hawk is a common hairstyle among naturals using some bobby pins or hair clips, but only a few are bold enough to rock the style everyday.

  1. I love this article so much. I am currently rocking a 80s flattop fade haircut. I just have it done for two weeks ago now. I love my new look. It’s very low maintenance than high top fade haircut.
