The holidays are over. The days are still short and FULL work weeks lie ahead. Can we fast forward to spring?

Some of our favorite influencers had the same idea, bringing the heat to Instagram. Here’s a little #hairinspo so you can start dreaming about your next vacation.


@Simplycn rocked bright colors and a beautiful ‘fro on the cold streets of New York. Pairing a bright yellow sweater dress, orange coat, and blue over-the-knee heels. Cynthia embodies the sun, making us all wish for warmer days.


@Kersti.Pitre has us feeling like summer has arrived with a bright yellow background and *perfect* waist-length knotless braids. The self-taught braider from Long Beach, California recently divulged her secret to perfect parts; two mirrors, a comb, gel, and patience.

@aysha.sow “More self-love this year✨”

Aysha Sow brings beach waves to the beach. Her effortless style and pose comes with a reminder to love yourself more in 2020.


Kiitan is skipping winter all together in Lagos, asking her followers “yay or nay” on the waist-length goddess braids. We say “yay” all day, Kiitan.


Whitney Madueke is keeping it bright and fun with pink and dark blue box braids.

@negana_ is living it up in Rio de Janeiro with box braids in a high ponytail with a wrap.  Her entire crew is giving us #squadgoals. This picture has it all; jumbo marley twists, wash and go’s, and a slick back ponytail — all go-to styles in every black girl’s repertoire.


And @westindieray exudes island vibes with her honey blonde locs. The naturalista started her loc journey in October 2019 and is keeping us updated via YouTube.

We might have a few more months before the warm weather hits, but with the right hairstyle you can keep the heat coming all year round.
