Creative Versatile Updo on Natural Hair

Hi lovelies!

Last week,  I was thinking of how I could style my 4c hair in a sleek yet stylish bun and then I came up with a style (in my mind). However, by the time I styled my hair in what I had imagined, it looked completely different in reality.

If there’s anything I have learnt about natural hair, its that you cannot actually predict what a hairstyle will look like on your hair.

This applies to whether or not it is an original hairstyle because hair texture, length and even the thickness of our natural hair strands matter. So, whenever you style your hair, have it in mind that it may look different from what you imagined. But that doesn’t mean you can’t play with it and come up with other styles that you may like. 😉

So I took advantage of that fact, and turned my hairstyle from the first picture to the other two styles below it. I call it the creative versatile updo and it was fun to switch up without having to stress about restyling my whole hair.

Textured Updo from a Braidout

I’m still learning how to fishtail braid with my natural hair and I’m thinking this was a good attempt. 🙂

Is this something you would wear? And do you have a versatile updo for natural hair? Please share below!

    hullo Chinwe Juliet, I love your posts on natural hair styles and caring for natural hair too. Your hair seems to be growing every other day and I love it.
    I have tried one protective style, that is the crochet braiding, have you done that before?
    My problem was knowing exactly where to pass this braid, the question is should the braid be passed between the corn row hair and scalp or within the corn row hair. Mine was painful since I passed the braid between scalp and hair which was in a cornrow. Most of the youtube videos are never clear to see where the crochet braid should be passed through.
    can you help?

      Hi Jennifer!

      I completely understand what you mean. I have actually never worn crochet braids before, but I have installed them on one of my brides. Whenever I passed the hook under the braid, she always complained that it hurt so I always passed the hook a little through the braid itself, then attached the extensions. I don’t know if that makes sense. Let me know if you understand, otherwise, I’ll rephrase it.
