How To: Asymmetrical Afro on Short Natural Hair

Hey Sistas! Here’s a quick, easy, and fierce Afro hair tutorial for all the ladies with short natural hair. I absolutely love this style! It’s an aysmmetrical ‘fro inspired by the beautiful Lupita Nyong’o. This style has been highly requested since my Spring Pastel Eye-makeup Tutorial, and its finally here! Keep in mind that this hairstyle is subject to a similar cut to mine (short sides, high top), but you might be able to make it work if if your hair is a bit longer if you pat your sides down a little more. Let’s get started!

Products Needed:

  • Argan Oil or any oil of your choice
  • Leave in Conditioner
  • Rat tail comb
  • Hair pick

The Process:

Step 1: Start with freshly washed and detangled hair and apply your oil and leave-in conditioner (you may want to detangle a little more after you add the product) so that your hair is throughly moisturized
Step 2: Take your comb and create a part at the center of your head on a diagonal either left or right depending on how you prefer to wear the style
Step 3: Pick out your hair and then begin patting it down all around your head. Make sure to pat down the side with less hair a little bit more than the other side to achieve the look of an uneven plane on your afro. Also, make sure the space between the sections is visible so you can get that cool asymmetrical look, but be cautious of the part because you don’t wait it to show


That’s it! Let me know if you end up trying this style in the comments or in The Sistahood Forum! And subscribe to our YouTube channel to view more videos and stay updated on new uploads!
