The Mole Hills

(This works well for hair shrunk to 80% of its length, or medium length hair).

This was one of my  older hairstyles when I just went natural and was trying to come up with creative hairstyles for everyday use. I call this one the mole hill as the hairstyle tends to resemble little ‘hills’ of hair across your head, this one is so simple I have to recreate the look soon!


What you need:

Bobby pins (By now you will know that a natural girls friend are millions of bobby pins!)

An awesome hair accessory or headband to jazz it up

Prep time: 30 minutes

Timeframe: I managed three days with this style



Step 1: Clean, tangle-free and moisturized hair is always a good starting point, as my intentions are always to keep the style for as long as I can.

Step 2: Start at the bottom of your head of hair near your neck and separate the hair into segments. For this hairstyle I separated my hair into segments the size of my wrist. As you separate each segment, tuck it in under itself and use a bobby pin to keep it in place. This will create a ‘hill’ like effect.

Step 3: Continue for the rest of your head until you have ‘mole hills’ all over your crown. When you get to the top of your head, leave out a small fringe of hair which you can style as you will at the top of your head.

Step 4: Place headband or hair accessory over your head and emerge from the undergrowth!

Step 5: Rock your hair with pride!
