The end of the year is fast approaching and with it the festivities and gatherings we love so much. Though many of us spend the year trying and perfecting wash and go’s and all forms of twists and braids, come this time and we all like to glam it up with some party hairstyles for natural hair.
Let’s be honest you’ll shine no matter what, you can perfectly make a statement with a knock-out wash and go or braid out, but why not showcase the versatility of curly hair?
One of my favourite places to go to delight on natural hairstyles and get inspiration from is Instagram. However, despite the video functionality, if you truly wanna follow a step by step guide then YouTube is still the place to go. So I handpicked a few party hairstyles tutorials that you may wanna try this season.
Don’t worry, it’s nothing too complicated they are simple and easy, I get that we’re all busy and ain’t nobody got time for elaborate. There are a few different options you can choose even if you’re the lazy type, just choose the one you think you’ll get better results. Don’t forget to make sure your hair is moisturised as some of the styles are set on dry or second-day hair.

Side Swept by Chime
Although this is a is a back to school hair tutorial, this side-swept is also perfect for a party or any event you have going on. It’s amazing how a side-swept created with a few braids raises the level of this twist out. It definitely merits your consideration, and Chime’s suggestion to add a Bohemian feel to the look makes it even more unique. (the original video for this description was deleted by the author, however, I replaced it with another one that has a hairstyle that is as beautiful as the one featured on ths post, hope you like to too.)
