Beautiful side bun hairstyle for African American women

A dated look is given a literally new twist in this formal hairstyle for women. Long, black African-American hair is straightened, and a long fringe is sectioned off and created. The straightening is light and temporary enough that hair is left still lustrous and pliant. The long fringe is styled into a cloche, right over the forehead and slightly sweeping to the right temple. The rest of the straightened tresses is twisted into a bun with a conch-like twist, then fastened on to the side of the head, covering the ear and meeting the ends of the fringe.
