The trick with a crown bun is to gather your natural hair into two large braids that can wrap around the perimeter of your head, separated by a path. For added glam, weave in a metallic hair accessory.
Summer is a time for friends and family, so what better way to approach your hair than to wash it and go about your day? Invest in a good twist cream and twist or finger-curl hair in sections. Hint: Start with more sections for more voluminous coils and curls.
Worn straight or curly, a voluminous shaved faux hawk is one of the biggest statement hairstyles you could make this summer. To style this look, make sure you smooth your baby hairs down with an edge styler and lightly spray in hairspray for the longer hair to stay in place.
Top knots work great for all occasions: work meetings, brunch, and errands. To recreate, saturate hair with a leave-in conditioner for an easy detangle and brush hair up. After you tie the hair in a ponytail at the crown, twist the hair and wrap it around to create a tight bun.
With summer comes heat and humidity. Take time to embrace your natural texture and give it some extra TLC with protective styles like a twist out. To achieve at home, grab your favorite hydrating curl pudding and rake into hair from root to end. Twist in two strands or three.
