This month we’re celebrating being unapologetically fearless, phenomenal women. From head to toe, you should feel confident and love the woman you are, which is why we’ve decided to put together a few of our fave empowering hairstyles.
From fierce cuts to bigger bolder styles, we’ve got you covered with a look that will give you that extra boost of confidence every day.
No matter the size of your afro, wearing it proudly is one of the most empowering looks of all time. Let your ‘fro shine by shaping it as desired and using a pick or afro comb to add some extra height and volume.
To keep your ‘fro looking happy and healthy make sure to give it an added moisture boost with a weekly deep conditioning treatment. The Shea Moisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Treatment Mask is a great option that’s cruelty-free, sulphate-free and packed with natural ingredients to give your hair the TLC it deserves.
Although this hairstyle may be old-school, you can’t go wrong with a classic. Once washed, dry your hair with a large round blow-dry brush to help keep it straight but also provide maximum volume. It’s an oldie but a goodie empowering hairstyle that will definitely leave you feeling confident.
Once your blowout is complete, finish it off with a light spray of the TRESemmé Firm Hold Hairspray to keep it looking its best all day long.
Slicked back bob
Slicking back your hair is an easy way to add some edge to any haircut, but we love it on bobs.
Comb the front of your hair backwards and keep it slicked back with some VO5 Extra Body Styling Mousse. This simple empowering hairstyle will leave you feeling trendy and confident at any event.
Curls and short sides
Natural curls and waves can look stunning up or down, long or short, and with this curly ‘do you’ll exude confidence no matter what your curl situation is. The tapered cut with short sides allows your natural curls or waves to flow over the back or stand tall on the top of your head. Either way, it’ll be a knockout look that will definitely leave you feeling empowered.
Making a bold hair decision can feel like the most empowering moment ever… Now imagine making two!
Getting a buzzcut is a bold choice that can leave you feeling fearless, just like trying a new hair colour. And if you can’t choose between the two, then why not try both? Be fearless and make a statement with this sassy cut in a bright colour.
Long loose braids
There’s something empowering about feeling your hair sway down the length of your back. Whether you’re going for warrior princess or Beyoncé vibes, long braids ooze power and confidence. Choose the length and style of braid that you’re most comfortable with and then just let them loose!
