While it’s true that you should stick to what you feel best in, we’ve put together a gallery of gorgeous looks for African hair, just in case you get bored and crave a change.

Elise Neal hairstylesElise Neal looks adorable in this medium length style that lets her loose waves do their thing. Her deep side hair part sweeps across her forehead while her waves cascade around her face. This look will work best for women with loose waves or relaxed hair that is naturally thick.


Model with curlsOur model flaunts a gorgeous layered style that makes the most of her ringlet curls. The layers start at eyebrow level and tailor their way down, creating a rounded shape. A few tendrils frame the eyes nicely. This style works well for women with medium-tight curls.


Annie Ilonzeh hairstylesHere, Annie Ilonzeh works the same cut as our model but with tighter curls and shorter layers. This cut is perfect for women with oval, triangle and heart face shapes.


Solange Knowles hairstylesFor women who have very tight curls, try Solange Knowles' hairstyle. This short haircut is easy to manage and super chic.
