Hey Curlies,

I often go through periods where I don’t realize how long or thick my hair really is until someone mentions it in conversation. This time, I noticed it in a photo.

I had created a quick natural hairstyle one morning, took a photo for my Instagram and was amazed. Wow! My hair really is thick.

Here’s how to get the look:

One of my favorite quick styles.

What you need to get started:

  • Ponytail holder
  • Styler or gel
  • Comb
  • Bobby pin

Here’s how it’s done:

  • Using the comb, create a horizontal part across your head starting at your ears. The part should start at the top of one ear, and end at the other.
  • Section the back half away
  • Create a middle part in the front section to create two even, smaller sections
  • Use a dime-sized amount of styler on the front right section and create one, jumbo braid. The key is to braid as loosely as possible to achieve a larger braid.
  • Repeat the previous step on the front left section.
  • Add a small amount of styler to the back section and create a loose bun. Begin by starting a ponytail without pulling the hair all the way through.
  • Lastly, pin the ends of the front braids to the top base of the bun.
