What comes to mind when you think of ethnic hairstyles? We think natural, beautiful textures, that stand out amongst the crowd. At Iles Formula, we always get excited skimming through ethnic hair inspirations on Pinterest, and have been building a collection of some of our favorites we have found just for you. In this journal, we are sharing Ethnic Natural Hairstyles & Braids We Are Loving Right Now. Get ready to pin, because we are sure you will be just as inspired as we are.
We always love strong defined shapes, and these structured images are nothing short of fierce. These shapes are ideal for distinct facial features. Our Iles Formula products are made for all hair types. Coarse, curly ethnic hair can especially benefit from our special formulas because of the robust amount of hydration they provide. We have also just launched the hair mask developed especially with ethnic hair in mind. Take a peek at some of these inspiring shapes:
One of the biggest hair trends right now is braids. When we think of braids however, we cannot forget to pay homage to where they originated. African people such as the Himba people of Namibia have been braiding their hair for centuries. In many African tribes hairstyles are unique and used to identify each tribe. Braid patterns or hairstyles can be an indication of a person’s community, age, marital status, wealth, power, social position, and religion. (Source: Wikipedia)
It is with the utmost honor and respect that we share some modern braids that we have found to be an inspiration in current times.
Braiding comes in all forms, from micro to chunky. They can be used to add length and fullness, or detail an updo. We especially love our Iles Formula Finishing Serum for braiding because it helps to control the hair while braiding, making it easier to manage. It will also eliminate frizz and fly away hairs to result in a clean, more polished braid.
Next up for our Ethnic Natural Hairstyles & Braids We Are Loving Right Now is Mohawk Inspired. Still working with the natural texture, we are obsessed with the details of these styles. Definitely make a statement by styling your short or long hair into a mohawk. The finish can be smooth or curly, and as controlled or avant-garde as you desire.
We definitely wanted to be sure to include more classic styles into some of our favorites. You can never go wrong with a clean and simple short haircut. Either of these styles are a must have in our eyes. A classic buzzed style makes your everyday hair prep a breeze. Want a bit of a feminine twist, keep the top a bit longer like the second image, to provide you with options when it comes to how you style the cut.
Embracing The Curls
We love to see people embracing their curls. Curls have so much personality, and no two heads are exactly the same. Allow the curls to be defined and polished, or brush them out for a fuller, more expanded shape. Either way you are sure to turn heads. Our Iles Formula Hair Mask is perfect for curls, because it was developed to strengthen and nourish the hair. Your curls will just eat it up! The benefit is that it will never weigh the hair down and you will get soft, luscious, touchable curls every single time you use it.
Want to try something different with your curls? We love the third image. Just expand the shape and use some ribbon or elastic to tie the hair and create a design that will not disappoint.
