Looking for simple, easy curly mixed race hairstyles?
I can admit I’m not one of those Mums who spends a tonne of time on my biracial daughters’ mixed race hairstyles. (I don’t spend a tonne of time on my hair either but that’s beside the point).
But with three mixed race, multiracial girls, all approaching the age where they want nice ‘do’s’ and not just the simple pony tail to which I’ve been known to resort, I needed to boost my repertoire. (For ideas for boys, click here!)
I needed to find quick and easy creative curly mixed race hairstyles for my girls that I could do once every few days and keep it fresh looking.
Short of watching Youtube videos for days on how to cornrow intricate designs into my daughters’ mixed race hair, I have scoured the internet to find easy up dos for mixed race or biracial curly haired girls. The below should hopefully be inspiring and easy-ish to get done either the night before or at least a few days before as part of your routine.
A key theme you might notice is that some of these do require the ability to cornrow. I can braid. I’ve even upgraded to french braids. So slowly, slowly… I will soon be able to cornrow. *** Update! I can cornrow now! I’ve even started it on each of my girls!
If you can cornrow already, AMAZING! Keep it up! And if you are learning like me, take these easy do’s as inspiration to keep on trying. In the meantime, try these ideas for simple curly mixed race hairstyles and let us know if you have any other inspiration so we can feature it on the page!
Disclaimer: I haven’t actually tried all of these hair styles but I have tried variations of most and in the interest of sharing ideas, I’d love it if you could feedback your experience trying any of these.
