Cute Accessories For Fro’d Out Hair Days
We all have those days where we just want to get up and go. That’s why having quick styling accessories that can substitute a morning of untwisting and picking out are very useful for every naturalista! Here is a list of accessories for all styles of natural hair that can really save time and add loads of style! I will include some images from my instagram and other’s from the web.
Not only can it be used to quickly smooth and contain edges but it can be used when you have a head full of old twist that are beginning to fro out. Just tie it around your hair but upwards so it’s not around your front edges and take out the hair you want exposed in the front. Quick and easy!
Black Bandana With Tails
This specific style of scarf was hard to find but here is the ebay link to purchase it. (Be sure to cut the elastic band part off of the headband for complete stylistic freedom). This is great for days when your hair is fro’d out or on an old twist out and you want something quick and easy. I’ve used this bandana to create mohawk looks and several others and because of the long front ties you can easily cover and manipulate your hair and create cute bow looks.
Loose Afro Hair
This takes some prep time the night before but you can start by slicking all of your hair up and leaving your fro’d out ends in a ponytail and tying it down for the next morning. When you wake up just untie your hair and take your loose afro hair and two strand twist it. From there you can wrap or twist the hair around your pony tail until you find a desired look. Pin the afro piece into place for security and go! Find the wonderful tutorial for this style by Mo Knows Hair on my youtube playlist Natural Notebook.
A Pair of Stylish Big Rimmed Glasses
Big framed glasses look great on every facial structure and with endless style choices out there you can take your pick. I’d rock these on days when my hairstyle was old and froing. I’d get out of bed spray my hair with water add moisturiser and fro out my hair some more and put these glasses on and go. Natural hair truly goes well with big rimmed glasses.
A Black Spandex Band
These thin black headbands blend into your hair very easily and get lost in the fro but smooth your edges down and accentuate the shape of your fro without using a brush or anything for your edges. Just moisturise your hair with water and a sealant and go. (For good sealants see my blog post 6 Praiseworthy Oils For Natural Hair)
Colourful Patterned Scarves
These scarves can bring out colours in an outfit as well as being used to manipulate and add volume and style to your fro. You can twist and tie these accessories for any desired look and jazz up whatever style you’re going for on that day!
Big Statement Pieces
Statement pieces for your hair range from giant bows to headbands with some big flashy addition on the side. I’ve never been one to go for gaudy accessories like these but they really do go superbly well with afro’s and give you that extra finishing touch of style.
All of these accessories are super affordable ways to give your hair that extra little something when you just want something quick and simple to go with your un styled or post styled gorgeous afro hair.
