Summer is here and that means its time to not only update your wardrobe but to also update your natural ‘do! Now there’s no need to run out and get a new color or cut because I’m bringing you five ways to jazz up your natural hair with fun and sassy accessories for the summer!
We all know I have a not-so-secret love for the ever-thriving turban trend. They’re the perfect, stylish solution for a lazy hair day and look fabulous on top of locks, twists, fros, you name it!

I believe scarves are the best hair accessory for natural hair as they’re just so versatile! Tie it into a head wrap/band, create anÂ over-sizedÂ bow, use it to make your own turban, the possibilities are truly endless In addition there is such a variety of colors and prints you’reÂ guaranteedÂ to find one that expresses your individual style.
And for a little bit more inspiration here are a couple of videos showing different ways to tie a scarf!

Some naturals may shy away from hats, but it shouldn’t be considered an impossibility! While they do tend to work better with shorter hair(as the hat will actually sit on your head) don’t think just because you have a fabulously, fluffy fro that you can’t rock a summer hat. Use bobby pins or attach a hair comb to the inside to help pin the hat to your curls. No more fearing those windy days!
4. Over-sized Flowers
What says summer more than bright, bold, beautiful flowers in your hair? Pluck them fresh from a bouquet or stock up on various pins & clips. They’re so inexpensive and add a feminine & flirty touch to any ‘do!

There’s nothing better than some statement jewelry to set off your natural look! Whether it’s door-knocker earrings, over-sized hoops, or bejeweled studs, this accessory works for all hair lengths!
