Default Styling 3-4 inches of Natural 4b hair

I am due to big chop in August and I am a bit of a slow grower. by my estimation by August I will have about 4 inches of growth. (based on my hair now.)

How are you ladies styling your hair at this length? How did twist outs look? rollersets, braid outs, fros..

and I would love if you could post pictures or direct me to some pictures..

Didnt do anything more than a scruff and go at that point. Kept a feminine barbered line-up/dencent shape...Put gel in it some days for the defined curly look, that was about it.



I really dislike headbands& a "puff" that cannot make a pony tail pushed back looks silly to me, so I just kept it framing the face.
*that is not me-didnt even know how to do makeup when I had a twa LOL*

Oh then I started doing a bantuknot when it was slightly longer, like the Lauren Hill:

Default Re: Styling 3-4 inches of Natural 4b hair

^^I need that hairband in my life. Where do y'all get them from @lovenharmony @MyAngelEyez~C~U?

@Itgirl, when my hair was almost 3 inches, I just wore puffs mainly:







When my hair was a little longer, I wore mini-twists which I'd wash and let them drip dry to get them to hang down and look like locs for when I was just chilling at home:


To go out, I'd put rollers on damp twists and let them airdry and set, and wear what my hubby christened the tarantula do (He hated it, but I LOVED it! )

Most are twistouts on what appears to be 4b hair. My hair is not 4b, but I wanted to include a hairstyle I did that most can do with 3 to 4 inches of hair. Headbands and other cute accessories can get you though the short phase of hair lengths .

@Nonie, I usually get mine at Walmart, Walgreens, or K-Mart, or my local drugstore.

Sometimes I wear just a braid or twist out in a puff, updo, or out. I experimented today with a side puff updo with a flower just to see what it would look like. I think I like it!

Check out rimblu4 on YouTube I don't really like her or her videos but she did a lot with her very short hair and gave me a lot of styling ideas when I wasn't in braids

I mostly did bantu knots and twist outs. I did some creative things too like finger coils or I would do individual braids then roll them on tiny rods. That's a really cute, braided curly style.
