Natural Hair: 7 Hairstyles for Thanksgiving

Hey Curlies,

It's Thanksgiving and you all know what that means.. you'll have to see family members you don't normally see on a regular basis and of course, somebody has something to say about your hair...but I have 7 hairstyles for Thanksgiving.
The foolery I saw on Facebook today...
While their comments truly don't matter, I do want you all to attend these occasions looking your best, so if you're still stumped for a hairstyle...I've got a few options for you.

If you're looking to prepare your hair tonight:

A bantu knot out may not be a bad idea if you have time on your hands. The longer you leave them in, the better they turn out. See how I got my best bantu knot out here.

If you feel like being fancy, how about a creative updo. This can be a cute pinup style or a series of small puffs. Click here to get styling details.

A twistout on stretched hair is always a good option as you get to show off some length. This is one of my favorite styles. Get details on my favorite stretched twistout here.

If it's Thanksgiving morning and you are pressed for time:

You can't go wrong with a classy high puff, great earrings and lip color. This style is very easy and takes just a couple of minutes. See my latest high puff on damp hair here.

Even if you can't flat twist or french braid, there are a variety of ways to pull off a crown. This cute protective style takes only a few bobby pins and a mean tuck and roll. Get details here.



A pack of Marley hair costs less than $5 and this could be your saving grace if it's almost time to visit relative's homes. Purchase a pack at your local beauty supply store and create a mega bun. See my latest bun.

If all else fails and you're cooking, simply rock a turban and call it a day. Below is one of my favorite ways to wear a headscarf.



Hope this helps!
