5 Easy Natural Hairstyles for Beginners in 2020

While beauty tutorials can be a super helpful resource for finding your next signature natural hairstyle, it’s true that some videos or step-by-step guides can a bit too complicated for beginners to master on their own. If you are tired of hair guides that are tricky or downright confusing to understand, here are some easy natural hairstyles for beginners that won’t leave you in the dark.

Read on below for gorgeous looks that won’t leave your hair broken and battered:


1. Heatless Curl Set

Flexi-rods are a great way to achieve a gorgeous natural curl, and they are usually pretty inexpensive and available at your local beauty supply store. To use your rods properly, you’ll want to make sure your hair is clean and conditioned first. Then, while your hair is still damp, you’ll want to use a good hair oil to help add some extra moisture and shine to your look.

Use a product like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Oil, and use a gentle detangling comb to distribute your product evenly through the hair. To use your flexi-rods, roll the ends of each section towards the root, twisting your rods to hold your curls into place. Use your rods all over your head, starting from the back, and working your way to the front. Once your hair is completely dry, remove your rods with caution.


2. Natural Hair High Bun

A top knot or a big, beautiful bun, is a great, easy natural hairstyle when you are running short on time, as it takes under 10 minutes to create this chic look. To create your bun without any hangups, it’s always best to start with washed and conditioned hair. Use TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and Conditioner to cleanse and remove any knots from the hair (this conditioner is great for detangling!)

Then, once your hair is dry, use your fingers to carefully create a ponytail at the top of your head. To create your top knot, you’ll want to use a doughnut bun maker to get that flawless bun. Gently slip the bun maker over your ponytail, and then wrap and tuck your bun into place with bobby pins. Secure your hairstyle with hairspray for a long hold.

Editor’s Tip: To keep your bun in place spritz your top knot and sides with TRESemmé Extra Hold Hairspray. Using a toothbrush or comb smooth down and tame any flyaways to give you a neat, stylish finish.

Double buns make a chic and trendy look for shorter lengths; the even better news is that they aren’t too difficult to create. Get this hairstyle by applying a good leave-in-style product evenly throughout the hair. Then use a comb to part your hair at the centre, and use elastics to create pigtails on either side of the head. To create your space buns, carefully wrap and tuck your hair into two buns using bobby pins.


4. Au Naturel Frohawk

The fauxhawk is one of those easy natural hairstyles that don’t skip out on style. And while this look seems complicated, it really isn’t that hard to create. To create this style, start by applying some styling gel on either side of the head. Then, to create that mohawk-like appearance, carefully brush the sides of the head and pin into place with bobby pins. If you want to take your look a step further, use some trendy clips and hairpins to help dress up your hairstyle.
