The Quick High Puff Twisted beauty!
First in the list of quick hairstyles for short natural african american hair is Puffs!
Puffs are one of the quickest styles to do when you are having short natural hair. It takes just few seconds to minutes to achieve this style! Adding a twist or cornrow braid to it by twisting the front section of your hair gives a nice sense of style to the overall look!
To Achieve the perfect puff your hair needs to be in a curly state, use a good gel for your baby edges! Here is a really simple video on how to get one right now!
Here are some tips i think you should check when trying high puff for the first time:
- Use pantyhose to form your puff (Don’t spend too much on it get a cheap one like this one off of Amazon is the best way to go about with it!)
- Don’t have a pantyhose? Try a shoe string!
- Keep your hair well moisturized (I recommend you have a look at this Best ways to moisturize your natural hair daily that can help you prepare your short natural hair for a amazing puff!)
