Unconventional 4B hair is known to have a cotton ball-like appearance and Z-shaped curls. Since this hair type tends to be drier and more prone to breakage, we know you resort to your usual protective styles to keep them undercover and cared for. But what if we found you cool ways to wear those curls as is and fancy, taking a break from the usual once in a while? Still keeping them looking happy and healthy whilst keeping damage at bay! Are you in? Here’s 5 easy styles for 4B hair that you need to try.
You know what they say, a little accessorizing can go a long way! This is especially true and looks all the more amazing with 4B type curls. Start with a good hydrating routine to keep the curls moisturized and maintain the shape. Feel free to then middle part your hair and accessorize with colourful bobby pins to get this exact look. You can always opt for a side pin-up hairstyle and look smokin’ hot with that too!
Sometimes a simple ponytail is the answer to everything! The days you don’t want to shampoo, the crazy time when your hair misbehaves and even the days you want your hair out of your face. But somedays you can ditch your basic ponytail and try this tweaked one instead with a cute side-Dutch braid on the days you want to do it up a notch. All you need to do is create a side parting, Dutch braid one side of your hair at the top front, continuing all the way around to the side and secure this with bobby pins. Follow this up by grabbing the rest of your hair in a ponytail and you’re all done.
Classic chic all the way! Ballerinas are known to flaunt this hairstyle because of its sheer elegance. Besides, it is also saving grace for a bad hair day. Since 4B hair is born with so much volume, you will have the most voluminous bun that most girls die for! So work the bun hun with some patience, lots of hair gel and one little scrunchie.
