We should all embrace our natural hair whether it is straight, wavy, curly, and kinky. But there is no wrong in wanting to enhance it and express your personal style. You are lucky if you are blessed with big, voluminous aesthetic afro hair cause there are a plethora of hairstyles you can try. If you are still hesitant to try a new look, these ideas might change your mind and inspire you to level up your 'fro.

Full 'fro

Don't you just love this full texture afro look? The full-length afro is perfect for every face shape. Just don't forget to moisturize your hair so you can achieve not just gorgeous, but also shiny 'fro!

Medium 'fro

If you like the full-length afro but think it is too much for you, you can go with a medium-length one! Both are gorgeous anyway.

Braided Bob

This super-awesome hairstyle can be worn in all sizes and lengths. Having a braided bob will make your hair look so neat and natural. This look is good for the summer.

Blond Ombré Afro

We know how difficult it is to achieve blond when you have naturally black hair. Bleaching your tresses is an option to get a pretty ombré look. Just be sure not to skip all the hair oil treatments needed in-between bleaching sessions so you won't end up damaging your 'fro.

Short Shapes

High tops and angled cuts are making a return. Look stunningly beautiful with shaved and tapered sides. Just keep in mind that having a shorter hairstyle requires upkeep and regular trims. You have to cut your short 'fro every seven to 14 days to maintain its sharpness.


If you want an easy style that you can do overnight, twist your hair out. Just wash your hair and finish your hair care routine then apply a defining gel to those locks and twist them in sections. If you want bigger curls, then twist your hair in bigger sections. If you want smaller curls, twist your hair in smaller sections. Smaller curls dry faster overnight than bigger ones. But don't worry, you can help dry bigger twists quickly by sleeping on a silk pillowcase. It can speed up the drying process. Then release the twists in the morning and show off your fabulous hairstyle!

Play up your afro with some chic accessories.

Now if you still don't want to cut, color, and no time to braid or twist your hair, you can still style it by wearing stylish clips, headbands, and combs. Choose accessories that are not too tough on your hair to avoid unwanted breakage.

Half-Up Afro

If you don't want parts of your covering your face, you can go for a half-up bun or half-up pony look. A very stylish and comfy hairstyle!

Pull Back

Pulling back your hair is perfect for when you feel lazy to do some styling or when the weather is too hot. It is an effortless style that can still give you a stunning look. Brush your hair and pull it back, pairing it with your favorite hair accessory.

High Ponytail

If you have long curls, you can slick your hair off of your face in a smooth high ponytail. This hairstyle is surely not only for those with a straight mane.
