Actually, there are many low-maintenance hairstyles  for afro and multi textured hair that look hot and don’t require too much attention. Many students don’t have the time, money or patience to spend hours at the hair salon each week, so the experts at Hiikuss Hair Salon in Camberwell, London, have considered a range of low maintenance hairstyles for students……..

South London







Cornrow Hairstyles for Students with Afro Hair

This classical hairstyle may indeed require a visit to the specialists at Hiikuss Hair Studio in Camberwell. Properly placed cornrows should stay in place for weeks between needing any maintenance. Cornrows offer a dramatic and classic option that helps keep your hair under control, ideal for students who are short on styling time before morning lectures!

Braided Hairstyles for Students with Afro Hair

You can choose between one simple braid, two or even multiple braids for your afro hair. Braids are much easier to complete than cornrows, so you could even replicate the look easily at home. Tight braids can last for several days, and you won’t have to regularly expose your hair to harsh treatment.

The Pineapple Upstyle for Afro Hair

Many women with natural hair love how the pineapple technique keeps your curls in place while you sleep. This look is more than a hair maintenance technique however, it’s a funky and fresh hairstyle to rock out and about.

We just adore how the pineapple is a fun and stylish way to keep your curls up and out of your face on a hot summer day. Even better, you can rock this hairstyle with bangs, or even create one using your hair, just fix into place with bobby pins, add a funky hair accessory and go! Best of all, your curls don’t have to be super long to get in on using this method for maintaining your short afro.


High Bun Hairstyles for Afro Hair

Like cornrows and braids, there’s nothing really new about high buns for women with afro or multi-textured hair. However, if you can pile your hair on top of your head in a high bun, you can take a break from having to relax it or even using heat to style it. You can sleep in a high bun, and you should be able to enjoy this style for several days between having to redo it.
