Easy Protective Hairstyles For Natural Hair

Short Term Protective Styles For Black Women With Or Without Relaxed Hair

Sometimes you might just want a protective style to last a couple of days rather than weeks.

We’ve got you covered.

Check out the pictures below for some awesome quick hairstyles you can rock for a short while.

Braided Crown

Braided crown natural protective style for black women

Don’t know about you, but this reminds us of fairy princesses. The hair is parted in two, and two large braids are continued to the end of the hair. They’re then tucked into each other, hiding the ends, and pinned. You could totally stick fake flowers into the back to really ramp up the princessing for a festival or a weekend. And it still looks professional enough for work.

Halo Braid

This beautiful girl rocks the opposite of a crown braid, a halo braid. While the full part of the braid rests at the back on a crown braid, it rests at the front on a halo braid. Truly angelic.

Beautiful Updo

Wow, wow, wow. We love the beauty and intrigue of this dramatic look. With the hair parted into three, then twisted and pinned, it looks elegant and sophisticated. Like the picture, we think it would look awesome with real statement earrings and eveningwear off the shoulders.

This is a slightly simpler take for if you have shorter hair. Again, the big earrings really complement the look. With sleek eveningwear, this look becomes truly sophisticated. But dressed down with a jacket, jeans and heels, it could do perfect smart casual, too.

Simple bun

The Instagram user virtue777 says ‘All bunned up. One of my favourite go to styles. Shea butter and sweet almond oil applied to damp hair pulled up with my extra large hairband, hair sectioned into 5-6 chunky twists and pinned in to place. Sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is, style took less than 10 minutes to achieve.’

This is an easy classic look black women have been rocking since forever. It’s easy, protective and suits wherever you want to go.
