7 Celebrity Hairstyles We're Loving This Black History Month!

As October marks Black History Month, we thought we'd take the opportunity to celebrate and highlight our favourite black female celebrities and their beautiful hairstyles (as if we really need an excuse?!).

Read on to see the hairstyles (past and present) we can't get enough of! 

Issa Rae's Simple Plaits

We just love Issa Rae's stylish and simple, single plaits for her Bustle shoot. The look taps into a 90s vibe, while also being a protective hairstyle.

Editor's tip: Love braids? Don't forget to give your hair clean and moisturised with the Braid Care Set. It's the perfect way to give your hair TLC while rocking your protective hairstyle.

Michaela Coel's Bantu Puffs

We're huge fans of I May Destroy You and we're even bigger fans of Michaela's modern take on Bantu knots for British GQ. 

Editor's tip: Bantu knots are not only a great hairstyle but also are perfect for stretching your hair

Kelly Rowland's Faux Locs

We had to double take when we saw one of Kelly Rowland's latest hairstyles. The faux locs look great and make for a pretty protective style for the colder months.

Editor's tip: Love faux locs like Kelly? Keep your hair moisturised with Sheen, our moisturising hair spray. It has a simple natural formula moisturises and revives frizzy, curly and Afro hair without leaving any build up.

Kerry Washington's Amazing Afro

Kerry Washington's afro looks glorious and we're here for it! We love all the variety of textures showcased by the different brown tones.

Editor's tip: Want to make your curls pop like Kerry's? Get maximum moisture for easy manipulation of the hair and close your hair cuticles to retain maximum moisture with  Smooth, our moisturising hair cream. It's also great as a leave-in conditioner.

Lauryn Hill's Locs

We couldn't resist putting in a throwback in our line up! And so we picked Lauryn Hill's beautiful locs circa The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill

Lupita Nyong'o's Wash & Go

Lupita Nyong'o is always goals with her ever changing hairstyles and experimenting, but we love seeing her natural hair in all its glory. 

Editor's tip: Want to cut down the time it takes to wash your hair? Our Wash Day Set will quickly help leave you with clean and moisturised hair that's ready for any style.
