We love natural hair over here at ZUMI Beauty. In fact, we like to think we are honorary members of the natural hair community sometimes. You know, when our curls are perfect. And of course, we look up to natural hair mavens like Ijeoma Kola. Ijeoma has mastered her hair and how to style it effortlessly – and we’ve got the photos to prove it.
Natural hairstyles come naturally to some women. But for the rest of us who have to bookmark stunning looks on other naturalistas, we need inspiration. Today, we are getting that inspiration from a lifestyle blogger, Ijeoma Kola. Ijeoma’s natural hairstyles are effortless and easy going – perfect for any girl who struggles with taming her hair.
So, let’s take a look at what we think are her top 5 looks that you can totally copy today.
If you’re struggling with length, then this might be the perfect look for you. Ijeoma’s finger coils are fun, cute and have some funk thanks to those popping highlights.
You can achieve this by applying some curling pudding or gel to clean hair and wrapping small sections around bendy rollers or rods. You can either set with a hair dryer or leave to air-dry till morning. Unleash the coils and you’re good to go.
The high puff
We think this is the 2nd simplest hairstyle you can pull off. The high puff is probably one of the first hairstyles you learn as a naturalista. To achieve it, simply use a hair band or tie to pull your hair all the way to the top and tie to secure.
A great trick is to tie an open-ended band around your head loosely, making sure your hair is in the middle. Grab both ends of the band and begin to pull tight as you gradually move it upward. Keep going till you reach your desired height and stop.
Low kinky ponytail
This is pretty easy to create if you have the right tools. Buy a natural hair attachment or fixture that matches your hair texture and reaches your desired length. Detangle and brush your hair out, and part as you please. After this, sleek your hair back and secure, and then finish off with attaching the false hair.
Braids with curls
This look is for our girls who really cannot be bothered. And love to live the easy life like Ijeoma. To achieve this look, basically, cornrow your hair halfway with a curly attachment. Then braid the rest of the hair individually. This will give the back of your hair volume that we think you’re going to love.
The silk press
Need a break from your curls? This might be what you’re looking for. Recently, Ijeoma got a silk press on her hair and it looks fabulous. Her curls were pressed out and her hair turned bone straight. Press play on the video to find out how she got it done.
We hope we’ve given you some amazing natural hairstyles you can try out this weekend.
