Havana twists, cornrows, chunky twists, braids, faux locs, box braids, Bantu knots, a twist updo, a high bun, ponytail and other protective styles are extremely popular.

Whether you have an afro, straight hair, relaxer, are transitioning between styles, want to do a big chop, or just desire a hairstylist, several Cincinnati natural hair salons and licensed African American cosmetologists offer beauty and barber services for all hair types and textures -curly, wavy, straight, kinky, chemically treated and anything in between.

To be recognized as a licensed hairstylist, cosmetologist, or barber, individuals must complete between 1500 and 1800 hours of training as well as various examinations. Many businesses choose to get accredited by the BBB, the Ohio State Cosmetology and Barber Board, the Professional Beauty Association, American Barber Association, or Professional Black Barbers Association. Be sure to check out if your hairstylist or barber is involved with any of these organizations to ensure the greatest quality of treatment.

  1. Thank you Marissa for this informative article! I stumbled across it while searching for Black hair stylist in Cincinnati. Your breakdown of protective style options are on point for many that find themselves struggling with maintaining hair styles during their work out schedules. With this information I can eliminate the doubt I experience with selecting a style when sitting in the stylist chair. I would love to try Bantu knots, and have no idea of what Havana twist looks like.
