Five Natural Hairstyles Perfect for Summer Dates

summer natural hairstyles for special occasionsEvening walks on the waterfront. Late night drink on an exclusive rooftop. Picnics in the park. Summer is ripe with romantic date ideas. But it’s also ripe for frizzy, shrunken hair. And there is no bigger bummer, than beating your face and slaying your outfit just to have your afro turn into an “af-no”. So try one of these five easy summer date night hairstyles for your next romantic night out:

Marley Bun

There is nothing not to love about this easy hairstyle. It takes just a few minutes to complete, lasts for days and gives your look an instant polish. If you can slick your hair even into the tiniest bun, this style is for you. Simply secure your hair into a bun and wrap a pack of Marley hair around it securing with bobby pins. It can take you from class, work, gym to the swankiest of events. Best of all just wrap it up at night and you’re ready to go the next day!


Clip-in extensions are an easy versatile tool that every natural girl needs to have in her repertoire. Clip-ins, like the ones from Xotica Hair, Afro Kinky Curly Clips and Kinky Curly Clips add length and volume and can save a failed twist out with ease. You can get a texture that matches your curl pattern for a natural look or try a different curl pattern (or even get yaki extension) for a fun new look. Best of all, you can install the extensions just minutes and take them out just as quickly at the end of the night.


A warm, humid summer evening is no match for an updo. Whether you want to simply the secure the hair into a poof using a headband or secure it up with braids or twists these styles will show off your gorgeous face and keep your neck free of curly hair.

Headwraps are another fun tool that can save the day. Literally, nothing else works? Haven’t washed in a while? Need a standout piece? A headwrap has you covered. These regal pieces scream “queen”, even if your hair underneath doesn’t. Styled right these can work even in a formal setting. You can go with a solid color for a polished, boho or 20’s inspired look or go with a bold color or pattern for a fun stand out look.


The afro-textured wigs from Xotica Hair and Afro Kinky Curly Clips ain’t yo grandma’s wig. Perhaps the easier style of them all, a wig can have you ready and out the door before your Uber arrives. Definitely an investment piece, these type 4 curl pattern wigs have the potential to take you all the way from the first date to marriage. They will protect your natural hair from the heat and humidity of the summer while still giving that sexy afro-textured look that will drive your date crazy. You can opt for complete coverage using a full wig or get a U-part and blend it with your leave out. Best of all, you can wear the wig in its natural state or try other styles like a twist out or braid out.
