Jessica Pettway Natural Hairstyles - Bellanaija - August2014007

Okay, can I just say how much she looks like Solange! #JustSaying.

Alright Natural BN Beauty Belles, it’s time to get your combs, water spray, argan oil and anything else you use to keep your hair tamed. We have some great Natural hair inspiration for you!

We recently came across this fab hair vlogger, Jessica Pettway (@jfashiongirl87 on Instagram) and fell in love (it literally happened in that order)! She has videos on different natural hairstyles, and the cutest video of her daughter and husband. But we are more interested in the fabulous hairstyles she creates and how we can get it too. 🙂


1. An Edgy Protective Style

3. The Crochet Braids

Side Note: This one might need a bit more focus. Jessica used the Kanekalon braiding hair to create her crochet braids. I advise that you pause it as you go along, so you get a hang of her braiding method.


4. Effortless Beach Waves

    Please are there any natural hair salons in Nigeria? Abuja to be precise. If there are, please use this forum to respond and tell us where.
    Going to salons in Nigeria is ruining my hair. Almost everything done in our hair salons is geared towards destroying hair; excess heat, excess combing, psychological maneuvering (“aunty just use relaxer on this your hair na, it will be easier to maintain”), pulling braids too tight etc… my hair has suffered these few months and the breakage no be here.
    Thanks a lot

    Its like i have 2 left hands when it comes to styling my natural hair

      I am exactly like that. Even single plaits is like punishment for me. I just end up bungling the thing and looking like the worst form of an mgbeke. So, I go to salons and keep my hair in protective styles – braids, weaves – which means my hair doesn’t have to suffer my poor attempts at styling

    99 percent of ALL africans in Africa do NOT knkw how totake care oftheue own natural hair. That is why they all wear wigs on their bald heads. Its the easyway out for them

    Hello Jennifer Obiuwevbi
    could you do something really nice for ladies on locks? Something like the post on natural Nigerian hair bloggers but for locks instead. You’re doing a great job here.

    her hair looks too fine to be natural. or is that a black american’s natural hair is not as hard as a naija one?

    she’s just amazing…but my hair is another story. It doesn’t even drop like that it always stays as if i was struck by a lightening.
