1. Corn Rows (All Back Or Shuku)
Cornrows or braids also called cane rows in the Caribbean, are an ancient traditional African style of hair grooming, in which the hair is braided very close to the scalp, using an underhand, upward motion to produce a continuous, raised row.
2. Marley Twists
Marley Twists or Kinky Twists are two strand twists with extension hair known as Marley Braid Hair instead of the typical braiding hair. Marley Braid Hair very closely resembles natural hair textures.
3. Gel Up
This is one very simple and easy hairstyle. Back in the day, most Nigerian brides loved to rock the up-do gel pack on their big day.
4. Bantu Knots
Bantu knots are also known as Zulu knots because they originated from the Zulu people, a Bantu ethnic group.
Bantu knots can be created on hair that’s blown out, relaxed, or going through the transition process. They can even be created on box braids, Mali twists, and dreadlocks.
A bob cut or bob is a short hairstyle for women in which the hair is typically cut straight around the head at about jaw-level, often with a fringe at the front.
Afro is a hairstyle worn naturally outward by people with lengthy, or even medium-length, kinky hair texture or specifically styled in such a fashion by individuals with naturally curly or straight hair. It could be attached as a weave or worn as a wig.
The trend dates back to the 1960s.
7. Anita Baker Cut
This is a hairstyle for women with a low cut which was debuted in the 1970s and 1980s by the late Anita Baker. It is still very much a beauty trend.
