If you’re looking to master some new hairstyles in quarantine, Laetitia Ky and Ipsy creators Bianca Alexa, Adonia Bree and Jasmine Defined have your back. In celebration of Black History Month, the experts walk us through four styles for textured hair — a curly half updo, fabric-wrapped braids, bantu knots and crochet braids — in our new video tutorial.

Beauty subscription service Ipsy, which recently dedicated $7 million USD to the development of Black-owned beauty brands in 2021, enlisted Alexa to create a casual, half-up-half-down ‘do. Using Briogeo Farewell Frizz spray to define curls, slick back a portion of your hair. Secure with a bobby pin and add two twisted sections of hair at each temple to help hold the updo in place. Ky achieves a more dramatic look with her “Kybraids.” Simply wrap strips of colorful African waxed fabric around each braid and secure at the end with thread.

Take a look at HYPEBAE‘s natural hair tutorial below and on Instagram.
