Fierce ‘Fros

The Afro is oh-so hot this season! With Natural hair on the trend scene, Afros are being rocked by tons of glamorous Naturalistas. Not convinced? Just check out how powerful and trendy this style silhouette can be!

Go Big Or Go Home!
AThis volume-packed style is guaranteed to stop traffic.
Get the look: Master stylist Demetress Valentine, owner of D’Signs Unlimited Beauty Studio in Crofton, MD, really made mane magic with this style. A paddle brush is pulled through coiled tresses to bring out as much volume and fullness as possible.

Curled Cloud
Touchable texture packed into a plush coif.
Get the look: This soft and stylist mane by Phyllis Smith, of PKS Hair Studio in Sierra Vista, AZ, is a tress dream come true! Fluffy coils are designed into a blown-out bob. A rounded, but still natural, shape is given and a small section is smoothed in front to break up the texture.

Compact & Chic
Try a petite Afro on sorter strands for an equally powerful profile.
Get the look: This hairstyle is all about embracing your Natural hair. Nancy Hamilton, of Lady Grace in Peoria, AZ, shows of the subtle appeal of a ‘Fro. Natural strands are carefully twisted into tightly packed coils and left to set. A light fluff at the roots gives just the right amount of volume.
