5 Stunning Protective Hairstyles for Black Women

  1. African threading Afro 1
  2. Two Strand TwistsAfro 2
  3. Chunky Box BraidsAfro 3
  4. Long and Unique CornrowsAfro 4
  5. Chunky Two Strand Twist BraidsAfro 5

These are 5 of my favourite protective hairstyles for black women. These afro hairstyles are ideal to help you hair grow while keeping your hair safe and protected.

These stunning protective styles look best when you also do grooming with your entire look. For example, when you are getting box braids done, make your box braids pop with red lipstick or enhance your cornrows with a bright slick of purple or burgundy lipstick. Makeup brings protective hairstyles to life. I am totally OBSESSED with the African threading hairstyle and I cannot wait to try it.



What Protective Styles Are You Wearing This Winter??


I don’t know about you all but even though I reside in the south now it’s still cold and it’s time for protective styles. I just did my hair last week in yarn twist and after I take these out I would like to try some new protective styles. If you would like to share how you wear your hair whether it’s in a weave, twist, braids, hats, etc please share. Please email me at mjcarter09@gmail.com with a picture or you can contact me on my twitter if you would like to share.
