5 Quick Natural Hairstyles -Not 60 Second Hairstyles Like The Today Show Styles

Last week the Today Show aired a segment called “60 Second Hairstyles ” although I did see the original segment, the part were the “beauty expert” did the makeover on the African American model went viral for all the wrong reasons.It was brutal!

Just in case you missed it, I’ll leave the link below.

To be honest if I had been watching TV, and I heard them say they were airing a segment on 60 second hairstyles, I would have definitely tuned in or at the very least set the DVR. I am always looking for quick styles to simplify my morning.  Here are 5 of my favorite quick hairstyles.

So I don’t do videos but thanks to some great vloggers I even have video content!

1- Quad Twists

It’s an updated version of a common style. This style was inspired by a picture I saw on Instagram of 4a Daniels. I timed myself and it took 13 minutes.

 

2- Two Jumbo Twists

Jumbo Flat Twists

This one literally takes 6 minutes. It is very simular to 2 cornrows, which was actually the first style I learned to braid, on my own head at about 7 or 8 years old. This is my absolute favorite style!

 

3- Two Twists

This one is very much like the Jumbo Flat Twist, but you don’t fluff the roots!

 

4- Updo

This is one of the styles that I use to wear all the time! When I was transitioning I couldn’t wait to be fully natural so I could rock this updo! It takes all of 5 minutes or so!

 

5- Double  Braid Updo

Now this last one is actually not one that I’ve tried yet! But, I really liked it and it looks super quick!

 

So I guess there really no such thing as a 60 second hairstyle. Well unless you count taking your bonnet off a protective style. Lol but you can rock so elegant quick styles that look like you spent a long time on them.

After all you don’t want to end up like this 🙈
