I know that you’re as excited as we are to see the steamy 50 Shades of Grey this coming Valentine’s Day. It’s going to be amazing! I’ll bet you never thought of natural hair as being the 51st shade of grey. Classic African-textured natural hair is enticing and sexy. Wearing a wild and beautiful wash and go can feel like stepping your feet into the forbidden.
Is your natural hair on the shorter side? Not to worry. You can get a sexy look by styling your twa. You can go for a highly styled look with defined curls or try out the pixie cut look. Curly twa afros are fierce and will for last a few days, too. Short hairstyles bring out the features in your face, so use this to your advantage. Big earrings almost always look great with short hair.
If you have some length to play with, you could try romantic ringlets, curly Curlformers, or a beautiful, big Afro. Janelle Monae is a hair inspiration to many naturals. Her signature pompadour is gorgeous and not too difficult to duplicate. Other updos to consider are Bantu knots or sensual corn rows. You can never go wrong with a twist out or a braid out. Or, you could embrace your srinkage and try a shrunken twist out or a shrunken frohawk.
If your wear dreadlocks, you could go the Siedah Garrett route. She is stunning with her crown of locks and there is an almost endless array of styles you can try out when you have dreadlocks or Sister locks.
Experimenting with color is another way to add some sexiness to your life. They say that blondes have more fun, so you can go the Beyonce route and try that. Purples, reds and oranges are great colors to experiment with, they are often complimentary to darker skin tones.
Don’t forget makeup and accessories. Nothing exudes sexiness like a great outfit, a well-made face, a great pair of shoes and tons of confidence. Hats and scarves can also be used to compliment your look. It’s your look, make it work for you. Soon you’ll find that your natural hair is beautiful, alluring and sexy. In short, the 51st shade of grey.
