This one’s for all the girls with tons of curls!
Textured hair typically refers to curl patterns and textures in the hair, such as curls, spirals, waves, and coils. Hair varies from person to person, and for certain groups such as Black Women of Color (BWOC), textured hair is a large part of their identity.
However, while being incredibly central to your overall look and appearance, managing textured hair can be difficult, whether you have 2a or 4c patterns! Luckily for you, there’s no end to the kinds of looks you can pull off. From hair extensions that match your exact pattern and texture, to a range of styling options that you can try with them, you have a lot to choose from:
1. A Top Knot
Top knots are the ultimate easy-to-do lazy girl hair hacks that also look incredibly chic. Channel your inner hippie-queen with a curly knot that rests atop your crown and enjoy the unlimited texture, volume, and length your hair extensions give you. You’ll look and feel fabulous with the help of a few bobby pins, a hair tie, and five minutes of your time.
2. A Messy High Pony
Anyone who’s ever sported a messy pony knows the amount of effort that goes into making it look effortless. From taming flyaways and laying your edges, to making sure it’s the perfect balance between effortless and fashionable, this look is always a winner.
Go down Riri’s route and let your curls flow over your pony and over to the front if you have shorter hair, or if your extensions have given you the length, work that till it flows. Tease out a few face-framing strands and voila!
Pro-tip: don’t flatten the top of your head—that’s more on the sleeker side.
3. Side Braid
Not in the mood to let your hair flow freely? Or tired of letting it down all the time? Add a fun twist with some side braids. It’s less effort to braid your whole head so that you can be done really quickly, but looks incredibly elegant—or hip—depending on the rest of your look. Wear this hairstyle to prom, or wear it to a party, that’s up to you!
4. Braids—All Day, Everyday
Braids have been incredibly useful for black women, acting as a form of protective hairstyling and as a homage to their cultural roots. At Hair Weaves & Extensions MD, you can have your weaves and extensions added into various types of braids for a longer-lasting look. Not only does this allow you to experiment and braid in your extensions but it also keeps your natural locks protected from styling damage and its aftereffects.
