Hairstyles for Work

Hairstyles for Work

I hope you haven't been caught in the rain! It seems like it's safe to say that we have officially entered Autumn!

Following California and New York crown law ban, outlawing natural hair discrimination, there has been a call for a similar law in the UK. You can sign the petition here:  

With this, I thought to put together a list of suggestions for afro hairstyles for work. Our hair is very versatile and we can create a range of hairstyles for a variety of locations - and that is inclusive of work- despite the completely flawed 'unkempt' stereotype. 

We apologise again and ask you to please bear with us, as we stock products. Remember to save Sunday 20th October in your diaries for our Back To School event. There's more information to come soon. Thank you for your patience.

1. Dreadlocks -If you have locks you can twist the roots to create a nice patterned style such as the ones in this picture:


2. Afro puff - This is a classic hairstyle that you can wear practically anywhere! There are little things you can do with it to enhance the style. For example, braiding or flat-twisting the front of your hair.

3. Flat Twists into a bun - If you'd like a tight sleek look, you could try flat twist your hair in sections and tie it up into a bun. 



4. Braid Out Bob - There are so many different types of briding patterns you can do to achieve the desired shape you like. Afro hair is so versatile!

5. Crown braids- These are similar to french braids but tend to go in a more circular format.

Definitely repurchasing!

Extremely good product, moisturises very well and isn't dry the next day like some products. Also a little goes a very long way and so it is fairly priced. I can see and feel it working with my natural hair texture, cleared out over 20 products and replaced with this one. It has good hold so is good for styling aswell


I am so impressed with this product it doesn't leave behind any build up of product residue in my child's hair like other products. It de-tangles very well, has a non toxic non overpowering scent and I love the fact that it's natural. I've ordered two bottles so far and disposed of the other products I was using. After educating myself about edc's in black hair products switching ti this this was a no brainer and I can actually visually see that the product works along with my child's hair which is lighter and not so greasy. The product was shipped so quickly after ordering and the customer service has been outstanding. Thank you so much for all your hard work producing this product that has been designed with black hair health in mind. I've been recommending this product to my friends

Best detangler I have found

Such an effective detangler that brings my daughters girls back to life. Lightweight and not sticky like other products I have tried

Amazing keeps my hair so hydrated and curls in place

This is the best spray leave in I've ever used. Sal kindly gifted me one to try and I've bought 2 more since. Even my sister bought one. It really works well in our hair. I have long tailbone length thick 4a 3c hair and this light weight product is amazing. Along with the quench cream. Perfect formula. I'd love to one day see Root2tip on the store shelves!


I first came across this product in a glossy box a few years back and fell in love with it, so I had to come and get the full size. It makes my hair feel soooo soft, completely moistures it and is very easy to use. The spray nozzle is great and distributes a lot of product. Definitely a staple for my hair.
