Natural hair is the most wanted hair these days. If you recently did the big chop, going through a transition, or used to wearing straight, wavy, or other exotic-textured hair extensions, taking the big leap into the natural world can be frightening.
These four faux fro hairstyles will make your transition smoother while giving you much-needed confidence to flaunt a fro.
1. The Crochet Fro
Crochet hairstyles are by far my favorite faux fro styles. With crochet, styling is virtually limitless. If you are unfamiliar with how to crochet your hair extensions, watch a youtube tutorial or enlist a talented hairstylist to get the job done. The best crochet faux fro is done with marley hair or mambo/ havana twists that are pre-twisted for easy installation.
2. The Faux Pony or Faux Bun
Looking for a manageable fro for an intense workout at the gym? A faux fro pony or bun with marley or kanekalon hair is the perfect solution. Use either bulk hair or a drawstring pony to add volume and length. Vlogger Kethia J shows how to install and style a faux pony in the video below.

3. The Clip-in Fro
I love to use clip-in hair extensions to add length and volume to my fro. I start off with a fresh twist-out and add 120-220g of clip-on hair extensions to my hair. The more hair I use, the bigger my faux fro gets. What’s great about using naturally textured clip-in extensions such as the kinky curly or italian yaky is that blending your natural hair with the extensions becomes easy. With these hair textures, you don’t have to straighten your hair with heat in order to blend.
4. The Faux Hawk
The faux hawk can be done with clip-on hair extensions, sew-in tracks, or crochet using synthetic Kanekalon hair, marley hair, or naturally textured human hair. This look is stylish, edgy, and great for a night-out.
