Smooth down your hair with hairspray before pulling it back into a ponytail.  Then fix your ponytail into a bun with some carefully placed pins.  Fix it again with spray.

Voila!  Your hairstyle should remain in place for hours.  If a few wisps of hair break loose, embrace the look which is pretty and feminine.

Short Tight Curly Hairstyles

Short hairstyles are easy to maintain and are a great alternative to long hair – especially if your hair is in poor condition.  

We can cut off any broken hair or split ends and create a pretty, edgy or sophisticated short hairstyle using the natural movement of your curly afro hair.

If you’re feeling adventurous, why not add some hair colour to give your style extra interest?  

The Top Knot

There’s no need to be too exact while tying – this look can be as messy or as neat as you like!  

Best of all? The top-knot visually lengthens the neck, makes you appear taller and creates a slim overall silhouette. Winner!


Plaits & Braids for Afro Hair

PLAITED HAIROne of the hottest hairstyles for summer is the plait or braid.  Either wear it in pigtails or so-called ‘boxer braids’ or opt for one big chunky braid.  This can be worn high on top of the crown, low down your back or to one side.

This style is easy to achieve at home but if you’re looking for a more intricate plaited look, simply book in and one of our stylists can give you a gorgeous new look.

Plaits and braids are a great way of keeping your hair off your face during the warmer summer months and will keep any flyaway or frizzy hair under control too.
