I’m a lazy natural. There, I said it! I’ve been trying to deny it for the longest time, hiding under the guise of a busy natural — although I’m busy, too. But my affinity for buns and protective styles that require me to only focus on my hair once a week prove that I’m lazy. So because of that, I scoured the web to find styles that are perfect naturals and compiled them. Check out these styles for lazy naturals:

Lazy Hairsyles for Frizzy Hair
A key to fabulous, but lazy natural hair is to embrace the frizz. Defined twists and braids take time, but if you embrace the frizz and work with it, you can still have fabulous (but frizzy) hair. In her tutorial, ItsMyRayeRaye shares how she embraces her frizz in three lazy natural hairstyles. In the first style, she simply twisted the front of her hair to create a headband with her hair. For the last two styles, created a variant of the popular Janelle Monae hairstyle, where she hid her untamed edges under scarves.

Head scarves are the ultimate lazy natural hairstyle. You can hide twists that you are wearing as a protective style or you can hide nightmarish bedhead. In Naptural85’s popular tutorial, she shares 10 ways to tie a head scarf. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to tie a scarf, this is your one-stop video tutorial.
