80 Fabulous Natural Hairstyles for Short Hair

Natural hair is becoming increasingly popular, and with that trend comes a large variety of short natural hairstyles that are fun, flirty, spunky, and sexy to wear. Gone are the days where black women feel that it’s necessary to straighten their hair with chemicals or a pressing comb just to deal with it. More and more women (as well as men and children) are opting for natural hair, choosing to embrace their wild side and let the texture do its thing. But going natural doesn’t mean that you have fewer styling options; on the contrary, you may even have more. Twist-outs, braids, braid-outs, flat twists, Bantu knots, finger coils, puffs, the pineapple…there are many styling techniques that look even better when hair is natural. The texture gives your natural hairstyle its own unique and personalized look.

The Natural Hair Movement

The natural hair movement of today is all about embracing your roots. It takes courage for anyone with naturally curly hair to wear it as it wants to be because it is unpredictable. However, that is part of the beauty of natural hair—it can have many different looks without heat or chemicals!
Once you let go of the mindset that natural hair is taboo, you will find that it is freeing to go natural and that you have tons of support. You may even be an inspiration to friends, family, and others in your circles. Plus you get to show a whole new side of your personality!
