Coily updo hairstyle for African American women

Fine, black, curly African-American hair is kept in its natural texture, and styled from there. A small pouf is created on the crown, while the rest of the short hair is pulled back and up. The ends are allowed to trail down from a high knot, softening the severity of the style. This is a classic updo for semi-formal and formal events, and the only emphasis is on height, as the face is left bare.
