The kind of movement that is involved in bouncy hair especially when you are walking is something that can’t be compared. Talk of getting people lost in staring and admiring your hair.
What amuses me most about this hairstyle is that you don’t have to cut off any length of your hair to have such a short look. All you have to do is get your curling iron ready that is if you don’t have naturally curly and bouncy hair.
Make sure you spend enough time achieving the bounce and it will take much longer. It can also be styled in any way depending on the occasion.

Best natural hairstyle for round faces
Choosing a hairstyle for your round face doesn’t have to be tricky anymore, especially with a look like the one above. Round faces are quite tricky because if the hair ends at the chin then you might risk having your head look like a ball but if you do the trick like this lady above then your round head shape will look oval.
She has a bob hairstyle but on one side it is cut slightly lower than the chin, then on the other, it is slightly past the shoulder creating the impression of making the face not look rounder.
This hairstyle can be worn for most occasions including the red carpet, work, and even prom.

It’s said a woman’s beauty is hair! Not that she isn’t without hair but because hair takes beauty to the next level. It’s the same reason why many women I have met especially teenagers and young adults would die to have a long hairstyle.

To be trendy is to be different and yet still up on the hair game! This hairstyle is actually more like a short afro hairstyle that has been colored brown. This brown color perfectly suits her skin complexion and makes it even brighter.
This is more like an on-the-go hairstyle in which if you just lightly lift up the hair used a wide teeth comb to style. Occasionally you should trim the tips or grow hairtoo maintain the length.
Best natural long hairstyle for long faces
If you have a long face then it's best to stay away from long and straight hairstyles because it will only make the face look longer unless you will place on it a bang.
In my search, I found that the hairstyles that have some curls in them especially halfway through are the best for people with long facial shapes.
This is because these curls halfway down will provide concentration to the chin especially making it look slightly wider and creating the impression of the face being oval or heart-shaped like in the image above.

Best natural messy Afro hairstyle
If you are an African American woman or just any African woman then there is no other way to show off your natural hair other than the timeless afro style.
The only reason why many women relax their hair is because of the hard texture of the afro hairstyles but if you leave it messy like the image above then you won’t have to do much like combing through perfectly.
