This chop cut makes a loud statement to show your new energy levels for the New Year. It’s left to you to decide how many layers you want based on your hair structure. The number of layers isn’t that important. The hairstyle looks the best only if and when you know how to carry the hairstyle with swag. 

3. Crochet and braided hairstyles

You should consider straight crochet hair and braided hairstyles if you are one of those who don’t have the patience or interest in trying out new hairstyles every now and then. 

It’s because once you braid your hair, you don’t have to worry about hair styling for months. It at the same time protects your hair from the harsh environment while giving your hair some rest. Besides crochet and braid hairstyles always turn some heads wherever you go!

There’s another plus point about these hairstyles. Its space for experiment and creativity. There are not only so many braiding techniques to choose from, but you can also experiment with highlights, different shapes, patterns, and clips and choose between a natural or curly texture.

You end up with any hairstyle ranging from Senegalese or rope twists to thick curls that look so natural. You can also style the crochet tresses in various ways or add some accessories like beads or bows. 

Thick hair and hair that’s naturally permed is meant for braids. So you may as well use it to your advantage. You can choose from so many crochet and braided hairstyles like:

  • Black hair that’s braided and wrapped around with fresh flowers to give a Boho chick look. 
  • You can alternatively have very loose braids from the mid-shaft of your long hair. It’s not visible much in the front but does look sloppy at the back.  
  • Cornrows have always been a cool hairstyle. So why not try some tight and edgy cornrow styles for the new season?
  • Long, 3-dimensional twisted rope braids look best, and interesting, for those with long and thick hair. 
  • If you want braids with a touch of elegance, then why not go for the low-braided bun? It’s elegant enough to complement even the simplest outfit.
