6 Natural Hair Styles for An Evening Out

Currently more and more African-American women with textured (curly) hair are selecting not to relax (permanently straighten) their curl patterns. So, there is a question that I am frequently faced with from guests of the salon, and general acquaintances with textured hair – how can I transform my look for an evening out while remaining chemical free?

Although they’ve made the decision to transition the hair to its natural state they are extremely unaware of vast styling options that are now within their reach.

An educated hairstylist using products that are therapeutic and hydrating can make taming and controlling your coils, or wave pattern, uncomplicated and playful while safely providing salon quest with the look they desire for your natural tresses.

Amber’s very short crop top cut was transformed into a modern day twisted pompadour (a hairstyle arranged high from the forehead). This protective style was created by securing twisted Kanekalon® (synthetic-fiber) hair to five ponytails down the center of the head. For sleeping, Amber will use a wrap cap to secure the sides and nape area. For an after five outing, she should lightly spray her do with an Olive oil sheen spray. (Photo: Cammel Hurse)

Brianna has the very high fashion yet still low maintenance protective style. Her natural hair was cornrowed. Then curly, coiled wefts (hair extensions) were sewn to the cornrows. The results…a beautiful textured tress that looks great wet or dry. Because the extensions were chemically treated with a permanent wave solution to achieve the curls and coils an essential oil (carrot or jojoba) should be used on the hair to keep the curls from drying out. Preparing for the evening events requires a quick shampoo and a leave -in conditioner to define the curls, and you are on your way. (Photo: Cammel Hurse)









Cassidy braided Mohawk was created by corn rowing (braiding a section of hair to lay flat along the scalp) her natural hair up toward the center of her head. Then Kanekalon hair was twisted and secured to the center of the head with untwisted tendrils (loose waves) framing the face to create a beautiful hairstyle that this 8-year-old thinks rocks.
