I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the beauty of natural hair lies in its versatility and the fact that a lot of naturals can achieve just about any style they desire. For example, I love a big hair moment just as much as the next person, but there are still times — i.e. when the temperature rises or when we’re just looking to protect our ends without committing to a braided protective style for a few weeks — when you can’t go wrong with throwing your hair into an updo.
Natural updos are an easy styling solution for people who want to keep their hair out of their face and tuck their ends away for a few days. They’re also just a really easy way to switch things up when your twist-outs or braid-outs get a little old and you’re lacking the time to set aside for another wash day to put some more life into your curls. Some updo styles are pretty simple, while others are a tad more complex, but all of them are gorgeous. Whatever the reason, check out some inspiration photos of a few cute natural updos we’re dying to try out ahead.
