@Moxbev is slaying the classic black box braids look! Box Braids can be done both by stylists or at home if you’ve found a good “ DIY Box Braids” Youtube tutorial to teach you. These braids are a protective style, when done right, and can last for weeks and even over a month with proper care!

Your skin is not only dark, it shines and it tells your story.
From her skin to her hair, her outfit, and her smile, everything about this photo tells a story about her beauty!
(19/50) Featured: @lontiakangwa
Locs are the ultimate protective hairstyle and even part of a cultural journey for some. One way to style locs is in this brilliant half up half down hairstyle. You can leave a loc or two out around the front of your face, put the middle of your hair up in a bun, and leave the back of your hair down.@lontiakangwa nailed this fabulous look with her locs!
(20/50) Featured: @tolaniav
Who knew a pregnancy photoshoot could be this beautiful! @tolaniav is embracing everything natural from her skin to her hair in this perfect shoot. Plus the aspects of nature that are added in like her gorgeous dress and the vines in the background take this look to a whole new level of perfection!
We’re pretty sure we should turn all the pics of beautiful brown skin girls with flowers in their hair into a photo “garden” by now because it’s giving us LIFE.

Locs don’t have to be long to look fabulous! Short locs are a great hairstyle you can have so much fun with! You can always add hair jewels to spice it up! Jewelry or not, this natural hairstyle will always slay!
