When it comes to styling 4C hair the last thing that comes to mind is quick. Believe it or not, it is entirely possible to get a cute style without spending the entire day on your hair. Here are 4 styles that you can achieve within 10 minutes or less:
A Good Starting Point: The trick to quick styling 4C natural hair is starting off with moisturized hair. Dry hair doesn’t look good on anybody, but in particular, it proves to make 4C hair styling even more of a task. You will find the styling process easier because your hair will be more manageable and looking in overall better condition.
The Afro Puff
The puff is my favorite go to style of choice because of how easy it is to create. I simply moisturize my hair, use an elastic band or ponytail holder and go! The above tutorial shows us that you can get even more creative with the classic afro puff by adding some style to the front portion to your hair. You can do a flat twist in the front, a hump, twisted bangs, or a curly bang. Puffs can be created in minutes and they works on short as well as long lengths of hair.
Textured Pompadour and Ponytail
This style works best on hair that has been set in twists or it can come in handy after wearing an old twist out. It takes literally no time at all to create. Form a pompadour in the front of your hair and pin into place. Secure the back section using a hair clip, then tuck and pin. This is a very low manipulation hassle free style. After VeePeeJay removes her twists there is no combing, sectioning or struggling through hair. Not only is this great for breakage prevention, but it’s perfect for those who don’t have hours to spend on their hair.
Flat Twist Crown
If you are familiar with flat twisting this is another style that will take you minutes to do. Since there will be some minimal sectioning and manipulation involved it super important that you start by moisturizing your hair first. This style is the perfect life saver for when you are dealing with a time crunch or you’re having one of those less than desirable hair days.
Frohawks are an absolute life saver as they can be done in 10 minutes or less! They also happen to look very awesome. You can do this on hair that was set in a twist out, you can define your hair with a gel for more sleek look, or you can style it on a fro. Choose to either pin your sides up or if you are looking for an even faster way your stretchy headband can be used to form a frohawk.
