Get out your curlers and your flexi rods! This is perfect to give your natural hair the look of being freshly straightened or curled (without a straightener or curling iron). This simple cut will let you go to bed at night and wake up with a fresh style in the morning. If your hair is thin, this is also a great way to fluff it up.
This carefully curated afro is a work of art. Although it looks simple, it requires more maintenance than it looks in order to achieve its perfectly round shape, so keep an afro pick in your purse.

Pair this look with a bold lipstick and a color-blocked wardrobe for a modern art-inspired look.
