Hi, loves!

I got a direct message on Instagram last week by a pretty girl who needed help with her hair for prom. Coincidentally, my sister also has her prom coming up this weekend so I decided to compile photos of some hairstyles to help anyone thinking of what to do with their natural hair on special occasions.

1. The French Roll- I particularly like this hairstyle because it takes less than 5 minutes to do on stretched hair, it is classy and also makes a statement when neatly done. My tutorial on YouTube can be found below.

2. The Bouffant- Its simple and stylish and you can decide to curl your fringe using any method you like. 

3. The Fingercoil Elegant Updo- I created this hairstyle in January and I still love it. The tutorial for this can be found below. 

4. The Double Gibson- Who doesn’t like a good tuck and roll with a bit of twirl. The YouTube tutorial can be found below.

The Double Gibson on Natural Hair (Igbocurls)

5. I haven’t quite got a name for this hairstyle yet. When I do, I’ll update this post and also add a tutorial. This was the way I wore my hair for the Kinky Apothecary Natural Hair & Beauty Show in Lagos last month. 

6. The Bun- I always say, if you want a very simple hairstyle for an occasion, try to add an accessory. It may be all you need to stand out from the crowd.

7. If you choose to wear your hair free, accessories are brilliant too.
