We always get questions every time we write about Natural Hair. We have received several private messages from those who are thinking about going natural or who want to do the big chop (cutting off all of their chemically straightened hair). We say, go for it! It’s a great way to familiarize yourself with your roots…literally, the roots of your hair and the amazing texture that it sprouts. But it’s easy to get discouraged from taking that leap when the natural hair community has such a strong fixation with long natural hair.
We have highlighted some styles you can rock depending on how low your hair is.

 

Just get a low cut and wear your hair ultra-short. This is a brave move but it can look absolutely stunning! You can even give it an attitude with a side part.

 

 

Accessorize with metal headbands and chains or just rubber Alice band for that calculated look.

Use a head wrap to add a lil somethin’ to your little curls. Sometimes, less is more

 

Go Bantu!!! Consider going to a professional stylist to get it done if you want to make sure that each knot is even. As you can see, this isn’t just a way to get a great twist out overnight; it’s a fun, edgy look that looks great when you wear it out, too!

 

 

Rock some flat twists on one side or both sides of your head and leave the rest of your hair loose or coiled.

 

Do you have very short natural hair? How do you like to style you hair? Are you thinking about going natural or getting the big chop? Tell us in the comments!

We cant wait to hear from you.
