With summer just around the corner, what summer I hear some of you ask? Well, even if it’s just a couple of days of heat, we’ll take it! During the colder months, many naturalistas keep their hair in protective styles, but it’s time to think about the different looks that you can experiment with during the warmer weather.

We know that running out of ideas can be frustrating. However, the beauty of black hair is that it is so versatile. There are so many looks that you can go for. Sometimes, it can be a little daunting, but rather than be put off, we encourage you to embrace the many ways that you can style your natural hair, no matter the texture or length; you can give almost every style a go.

We have selected our top 11 natural hair styles that you can try out this summer. These styles are all perfect for the summer heat as they are all up-do styles and above the shoulder allowing you to keep cool.
