Looking for a Valentine’s hairstyle that’s easy to do? There’s no easier style than this defined puff or pineapple. Just make sure your hair is nice and hydrated to make sure your curls shine! 

Editor’s tip: Want to make sure your curls really pop? Grab yourself the Afrocenchix Moisture Surge Set and get your hair on LOC with our hydrating trio of products.

Heart Shaped Afro

Want your hairstyle to immediately say Valentine’s Day? Well, then you’re in luck this cute, heart-shaped afro is giving all things romance, which is perfect to celebrate the day of love. 

The key to nailing the look is to make sure you get your afro shaped up and neat with a trim. We’re big fans of the grazer method AKA search and destroy method, which gets rid of scraggly ends but retains length.

Twists With Puff

This twists with a puff valentine’s day hairstyle is great for low maintenance naturals. If your go-to hairstyle is a puff/pineapple then this is a cute way to add a little spice by doing two little 90s-style twists at the front. And remember, R’N’B slow jams are optional but encouraged with this style!

Passion Twists

These passion twists are for box braid lovers that are looking for a slight change up. Opt for extra long lengths and a bit of texture at the ends to make sure you ace the beautiful boho vibes. 

Bantu Knots

Let’s be honest, regardless of the event, venue or time of year, beautiful Bantu knots are perfect. We love that you can style chunky or micro depending on your mood or style. Not sure how to create the look? Head over to our Bantu knot video tutorial to learn how.

Blow Out with Headband

Lovely accessories such as satin lined headbands are a nice way of putting a romantic touch to your natural hairstyle this Valentine’s. We love this look especially as it packs a punch with statement glasses! 

If you love this look but want to protect your ends, why not create the look with a ponytail extension? 

Twists with a Headscarf

These twists with a headscarf are protective as well as pretty. It’s such a good way to stretch your twists out for another day or two while still looking chic. 


Chunk Cornrows with Bead

You might have guessed by now we love protective hairstyles that are also stylish. Cornrows don’t have to be small and labour intensive, you can easily style cornrows into a chunkier style to make it quicker to install (and take down).Space Buns

We just love how pretty, practical and protective this hairstyle is! Whether your hair is natural, curly, braided, or loc’ed, you can definitely rock this ‘90s inspired hairstyle.
