Are you a naturalista who struggles to style your natural hair? Do you often find yourself putting your afro in a puff wishing you could do more with your hair? Don’t give up on your coils yet! Here are some new and unique ways you can style + elevate your afro-puffs.

Who says all afro puffs belong on top of your mane? Let your hair down by styling your afro puff to the back portion of your mane. This is a gorgeous look for when you want to wear your afro puff to special occasions. Further, elevate the look by styling your edges with TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Firm Control Gel.

2. Afro Puff with Bangs

One of the biggest misconceptions about Afro Hair is that you can’t rock a set of bangs. This can easily be done in many ways. While wearing an afro puff, leave some hair at the front of your hair on the opposite side of the puff elastic for a gorgeous puff with bangs look! 

3. Afro Puff Scarf

Another gorgeous way to wear your afro puff with bangs is to add a scarf or headband accessory! Rather than holding your hair in a traditional puff, use the headband/scarf to separate your desired bang from the rest of your afro. Use SheaMoisture Papaya & Neroli All Day Frizz Control Milk Gel for faster and easier hair styling!
