Black hairstyles like this are gorgeous, and they are ideal for both silky smooth hair and wild natural curls. The look features a tight French braid along the side of the head starting just above the outside corner of the eye. It begins tight and moves diagonally to the side as it winds towards the back. The braid finishes in a corkscrew bun braided into a conch shell at the nape of the neck. The front bands feature loose beach waves tucked behind the ear. Black hair salons should have no problem with these African American hairstyles inspired by this look.
