Learn from your mistakes

There is no perfect natural, so don’t hide in your room when your hair does not have a perfect spiral. Your hair is most healthy when you are not forcing it to do something it isn’t made to do.

I figure if I mess up on a style, then the next time I do the same hairstyle I should be ready to do a better job. Hair styling is a work in progress, and you shouldn’t beat yourself up if you make mistakes.

So if you look in the mirror and you don’t feel #flawless, don’t be disheartened, but call it a part of the process of being natural.

Practice makes perfect

For intricate styles, like flat twists or corn rows, it might take you a while to get it down. The most important thing is that you keep practicing.

If you cannot flat twist at all watch a tutorial and try it again and again until you have it. You cannot expect your first twist out to turn out like the woman on YouTube who has been doing flat twists in her hair for years.


Get a signature style

Your signature style is that one style you will resort to if the hairstyles you are trying fails. It could be a bun, a puff, a fro, anything that you are great at and that always looks flawless.

If you have a signature hairstyle in your arsenal you can always fall back on it whenever things go wrong or if you are in a rush and do not have the time to try something new.

Health over aesthetics every time

Finally, even though this post is about hairstyle development we have to stress the point that regardless of the styles that you might pick always consider the health of your strands first.

If it’s a cold day, maybe a bun or a style that tucks the ends of your hair is ideal. If it’s a hot Summer day then you know you can get away with a fancy wash and go. When you think in this manner, you will be doing the best thing for your hair despite what ever hairstyle you might choose.
