1. Put your hair into a high ponytail.
2. Pin it up into a bun.
3. Cut a piece of yarn or fabric ( I love using old stockings because they're extremely flexible!)
4. Wrap it around your head and tie it into a knot in the back. (You can easily tuck any excess underneath the knot or use a hair pin to keep it secure.) Repeat 2 more times.

Ready to unleash your creativity?! The more I explore my hair, the more I come to realize how amazing this natural hair journey really is! Natural hair rocks, y'all!...And, these are so easy! Now tell me, which one will you be sporting?

(Note: You can do any of these styles on naturally curly hair, a twist out, a braid out, flat twists etc. It depends on which curl pattern you like best.)
