Experimenting with your natural hair is always a fun time, whether you're still transitioning your hair or you've been embracing your texture for as long as you can remember. Believe it or not, there are a ton of easy and low-maintenance hairstyles out there that look amazing on natural hair, though some of our favourites happen to be braided hairstyles.
As much as we love protective styles like box braids, goddess locs, and fulani braids that are designed for more long-term wear by fully tucking your ends and keeping them free from manipulation, we also love braided hairstyles that are equally stylish yet slightly less committed, less costly, and don't always require the help of a professional to install. We rounded up a few of our favourite quick and easy braided natural hairstyles that you can pull off whether you're just getting acquainted with your kinks and curls or if you're a seasoned natural looking for a quick styling option. Check them out ahead.
