Top 5 Natural Hairstyles for Black Women in 2021

Are you a natural hair lover who also loves to stay trendy? If so, then you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, we'll be looking at natural hairdos you should expect to see in 2021.

No doubt, 2020 was a golden year for the natural hair movement. In this year alone, we've seen different natural hairdo trends from Bantu knots to big puffs, updos, flat twists, tapered cuts, afros, and box braids. As every new season comes with new hair trends, predicting the styles, cuts, and colors set to be huge for an entire year ahead is no easy feat. Nonetheless, we've been able to come up with 5 natural hairdos that will be the highlight of 2021.

  • Mini Afro: A lot of ladies rocked their short natural hair in a cute mini afro in 2020, and we expect the trend to spill over to 2021. Mini afros are quick hairdos that also lower the chances of breakage as you don’t need to use hairbands or heat styling. For a healthy mini afro, make sure you comb your hair out when it’s dry instead of wet. To maintain moisture, do regular masks and oil treatments. Also, wrap it in a silk scarf when you go to bed.

  • Tapered Hairstyles: Tapered cuts are having a moment right now, and that won’t change anytime soon. This is a medium-maintenance style that goes beautifully with bouncy, kinky curls of various colors. If you’re going with this style, remember to make regular trips to the salon to keep the shape intact.

  •  Crown braids: Crown braids allow you to unleash your inner queen, particularly when you spice them up with colors like gold. They are great if you want to keep your hair out of your face, but you don’t want to wear it fully pulled back.
  • Cornrows: Did you know that variations of cornrows date back thousands of years? While it has evolved over the years, it’s still a gorgeous, incredibly versatile staple of Black hairstyling that will probably never go out of style. These stitch braids take the simple approach to braids to an elevated and stylish look. And we'll be seeing more of it in 2021.

  • Box Braids: Even though box braids have been around for a while, 2020 gave it a whole new meaning with creative short and chic styles. You'll agree that box braids are one of the most convenient protective styles that looks good at any length, plus adding cute jewelry can give it an instant makeover. We can’t get enough of this ultra-cool, sultry look and can’t wait to see what 2021 will hold.


Truly, there’s nothing as freeing as embracing your natural hair in all its glory. Not only does natural hair look fabulous, but it also a healthier choice. When choosing a style in the coming year, consider your curl type, the porosity of your hair (that is, how much conditioning and maintenance it needs), and whether you want to keep it short or help it grow long, and go from there. Whatever your hair length or texture, there is a style that will bring out your inner goddess.
