You can get a set of 32 chalks from Urban Outfitters for $14. For ideas on which strands to chalk to achieve a nice mix, check out the "before" pictures of Hair Romance's fish tail braid tutorial.


6. Natural hair girls should try "unicorn braids" — they're deceptively easy to do.

10. How about jewelry for your mane? Hair rings. They're a thing.

A U.K. company called Regal Rose makes them and they ship internationally. The packs range from about $13-$20 depending on if you select "short," "medium" or "long" hair.


12. Natural hair girls can experiment with creating artistic faux bangs.

13. To make your killer do really stick and last, spray your bobby pins with hairspray before setting them.
