Silk Press Natural Hairstyle

When black women want long flowing hair without the use of harsh chemicals, their go-to technique is the silk press. Silk press hairstyles have been a mainstay in African American fashion since the 1920s. Beauticians would use a metal comb, heated by a stove, to straighten the curl pattern of African American hair.

The model in these images is wearing a silk press natural hairstyle from Lisa Motley, a professional hairstylist from Alter Ego Salon in Columbia, SC.
