3 ways to style naturally kinky hair

Is your hair naturally kinky? Ditch the heat styling and opt for a look that celebrates your natural hair with volume and eye-catching texture! Here is a selection of some on-trend hairstyles for chic natural hair. Ready to steal the show?

Voluminous curly 'fro

Flaunt your natural hair by styling it in an XXL afro. After washing with a nourishing shampoo and conditioner, comb through carefully with a wide-toothed comb. Towel dry lightly and add a volumising mousse like . Next, apply a diffuser to your blow-dryer and dry hair upside down. Flick back once dry, use a hair pick/comb to boost the volume even further, and spray on some Messy Cliché hairspray for texture and hold.

High volume updo

The perfect combination of updo and afro, this voluminous ponytail adds immediate height and elegance to the silhouette. Use a comb and gel (we love ) to smooth the top section across the head, then gather the lengths of the hair into a ponytail that sits right on the crown of the head, pulling the hair forward. Use your comb again to separate the sections and create more volume - don't forget your hairspray!

Short & sweet or tight braids

Two looks for the price of one! Our first style here is a cute picked-out afro with soft-looking volume that makes the most of natural hair's texture. A mattifying hairspray can give your look a chic modern touch and long hold.

Number two is one of the biggest hairstyle trends from last season (with no signs of slowing down in 2018). Tight, perfectly positioned Dutch braids line the head to give graphic edginess. To make styling easier with natural hair, apply a hair oil or serum after washing. Don't worry about a bit of frizz, it gives a soft "halo" to the finished look!
