When I first did the Big Chop, there were many days when I had a hard time “dressing up” my hair.
Yes. I love wearing my natural hair. But I have a TWA (a teenie weenie afro). And I wear it seven days a week. EVERY day I look in the mirror, I still have a TWA. And some days I would like to look in the mirror and see a little more sassy, or sexy, or just different. I love my little afro, but I have to be able to get some diversity in my hairstyles, so I’ve invested in just a few natural hair accessories to help me jazz up my look.
If you’re a new natural or a seasoned Naturalista looking for a way to jazz up your look, here are some ideas for natural hair accessories I wear on the regular that work for me.
HEADBANDS. I’m crazy about them.
I recently purchased this gold leaf headband that has gotten me SO many compliments. I know I say this every time, but this is now my new favorite.
HATS. I live in the South where it tends to be warm, so I love straw hats.
HEADWRAPS. Purchase a long one, so you can experiment with different headwrap styles to find the one that gives you the look you desire.
HAIR CLAMP. Yeah. I know. Too soon. But I had to have it so I could grow into it. LOL
But my all-time favorite go-to natural hair accessory is one that you own. So, this is just some encouragement for you to wear it. It’s beautiful.
