So you’ve just taken the first major step in your natural hair journey and big chopped.
The unhealthy state of your hair just became too much to handle. From the mass amount of breakage in your hair brush, to the burnt ends as a result of over processing and heat damage, it was time for a fresh start. Unfortunately, this new Teenie Weenie Afro—or TWA—is not slaying your life like you expected. Well, don’t worry natural sisters, we got you. Here are some trendy styles that you can try on your short locks to achieve that newly natural glow you had originally hoped for.

At FORA, we have a saying. It’s simple, it’s sweet, and it motivates us when we’re feeling lackluster: LONG LIVE FESTIVAL HAIR.
Just because leaves are turning, snow is falling, or rain is pouring, doesn’t mean we have to pack away our fun & creative hairstyles. We teamed up with göt2b and MUCH creator Tasha Leelyn to recreate some of our favourite festival hair, and to prove that these styles really can work all year long!
With festival season (sadly) coming to a close, we want to try our best to keep the magic of the season alive. Although you’ll soon have to put away your crop tops and cut-offs, why not keep some fun festival hairstyles in rotation all year long!
Take some inspo from these playful looks we found on festival grounds, and stay tuned for our tutorial video where we’ll recreate some looks with göt2b!
We don’t think we’re being dramatic at all in saying that dry shampoo saves lives. Between the stresses of school, getting ahead in your career and trying to remain a ~social butterfly~, the last thing any girl wants to do is carve out time to wash her hair—or even worse, cut into valuable sleeping/reading/TV-watching time.
Dry shampoo gives the people what they want—the glorious opportunity to go just one more day (or maybe a few more days) without washing their hair. But you don’t have to break the bank to maintain your greasy roots. Here are our picks for the best dry shampoos for babes on a budget.

It’s 8:30 a.m. and you have lecture in half an hour, but you’ve been consistently hitting snooze since your first alarm went off an hour ago. Luckily there’s a Starbucks on the way to class and the pajama look is in, but what are you going to do about your I-Fell-Asleep-On-My-Textbook hair? All you need is 5-minutes and some hair product to show the world that you pretty much, basically ~almost~ woke up like this.

Being a competitive athlete means putting in hours upon hours of hardcore gym time to achieve athletic perfection. While we watched in awe at the stamina and perseverance of these athletes, we couldn’t help but also watch in slight envy of their hairstyles too.

When it comes down to it, festivals are really just one giant dance party under the sun for 3-days straight. And what’s the main component of a dance party?
Looking awkward in the corner DANCING, obvs!
We teamed up with Much Digital Creator Mila Victoria and hairstylist Ania Wazny to bring you some festival-ready dance proof hairstyles for whatever Féria by L’Oréal Paris Smokey Pastel colour you prefer!
One look at Shay Mitchell’s Instagram feed has us picking our jaws off the floor. Our best guess for how she manages to have simultaneously flawless hair, skin and makeup is that she’s a goddess sent from the heavens to enlighten us all with her smokey eyes and beachy waves (either that or she has a killer hair/makeup team on her side- but we’ll go with a real-life goddess)
