The Best Fall/Winter Hairstyles for Women of Color!

Now that the summer has officially ended and it's the first of the month (October that is...), box braids, curly hair, faux locs, and twists are fading out of the picture.  So what are some great hairstyles during the fall/Winter for us dark beauties?

*I thought that I would use myself as an example.  Enjoy and stay FABULOUS!

1.  Sleek Bun
Let's face it, with the wind chill and speed increasing, we have to protect our tresses.  A simple, sleek bun is a great protective style to protect the ends of your hair.  I favor this hairstyle when wearing dramatic looks or deep lips.  It lets your face do the talking...

2.  Chic Updo
Keeping along the lines of protecting our ends, a cute updo will never go out of style.  This style can be helpful in hot summers and cold winters.

3.  Hair Accessories
It's fall, right?  So lets bring out our scarves.  This is our chance to try out new techniques and experiment with styling scarves.  Also, don't be afraid to rock a cute hat.  This is the season where skull caps, aviator hats, berets, etc. are entering the retail market. 

4.  Straight Look
We don't have to worry about humidity in most places this time of year, so flat iron your hair.  It will last longer...

5.  Crochet Braids
Crochet braids are very versatile and can be worn to mimic natural hair or in a braid/twist style.  Simple styles just require your hair to be cornrowed under the synthetic hair.  This style is quick and an easy way to have a "sew in" look.
