Protective Styling Pictorials, For The Win

Protective Styling is pretty much in everyone’s top 3 things that helps you to retain length.  And while we all are familiar with the standard: braids, weaves, wigs and buns.  If you are anything like me that’s about as far as your mind goes when it comes to choosing a protective style.  Well, I came across this post on Tumblr and decided to share these incredibly beautiful (and creative) protective styles pictorials.  Now, yes they’re all on natural hair, but there’s no reason a relaxed head couldn’t replicate these styles with the same level of awesomeness. Take a look at these fabulous women and their creative protective styles.
