Natural Black hairstyles to inspire you to put down the creamy crack

By on Dec. 8th

Ariel pinned this cute shot of a bride rockin' her Natural 'do with a sweet little birdcage to the Offbeat Bride Pinterest account. Once I saw this, I disappeared down a rabbit hole of awesome natural hair options. Oh, the beastly time-drain that is Pinterest. Le sigh. But my time-suck is your gain! Check out these lovely styles for natural textured hair, whether it be curly, kinky, coarse, or super thick.

This crazy-gorgeous lady is sporting short twist curls and white flowers. You could stick on a headband, a fascinator, a mini top hat, a house cat… anything works with this style.

This looks professionally done, so if this chick is just going out shopping, consider me jealous of her mad hair skills. I see this updo as very veil-friendly — and do I smell a hint of Janelle Monae in that pomp?

Speaking of veil-friendly, here is a bride with some classic braids. But this time she's braided herself a little retro headband! LOVE!

Here is more retro style in the form of victory rolls. And you know where this came from? A Youtube tutorial from ThePinupNoire, for the hair-impaired like meeeee! Watch and learn, my lovelies. (And don't forget to snag a "hair rat" for making the faux bangs!)

Oh and finally, I loooove how Starla rocked her natural hair, as featured in this Offbeat Bride post from a couple years ago:
