Wintertime is the time when everyone wants to wear protective styling for obvious reasons. This is the time when you let your hair hibernate—after all, less stress does the hair good. For those special occasions when you really don’t feel like going for the same ol’ braids or sew-ins here are some styles that may inspire you to do something different. Afro-textured hair can be versatile if you’re willing to be creative!

This is a simple up-do that can actually be considered a protective style because your ends will not be exposed. Meeting his family for the first time this thanksgiving? Woo them with this one!

You can always rock your plain twists with bold make up to make a statement. On the other hand, you can go a step further by styling the twists instead. Experiment with some hairpins! You never know what idea will be birthed.

Depending on the look you’re going for, this can be very girl or professional chic. Experiment with hair accessories; they can make all the difference. See Hair Accessories That Will Jazz Up Your Look This Season.

Yet another up-do. This one is for the ladies trying to make an elegant statement at this year’s Christmas social! The piece sticking out in the back looks rather awkward though. I’d probably tuck it under.

Cornrows have always been a go-to for their versatility because you have all the patterns in the world to choose from. Here’s an alternative to the fro-hawk many ladies wear in summer.

Don’t want cornrows? Try flat twists. This works as a stylish low-manipulation and protective do with a little attitude.

Always remember: whatever style you choose, rock it with confidence and the rest will be history!
