As fierce naturalistas we are known for our beautiful wild manes full of curls and kinks. Sometimes however, we want to tone it down just a tad and rock a simple, elegant updo with our natural hair. For women with shorter natural hair this can pose a challenge, but don’t worry I’ve got you covered.
