As much as I love my hair [ currently sporting a TWA or teeny weeny afro] sometimes, I want to just give my hair a break. To be honest, I look through a couple of my Pinterest boards for a couple of hours over a two-week span. Why? I need to figure out what protective hairstyle I want. This mainly happens when I see that my hairstylists' calendars are booking...quickly! All the hairstyles I come across are so beautiful that at times, I have a bit of a struggle picking the one I want to wear for 6-8 weeks. Besides, I am sure I am not the only one who goes through this!

Anyway, here are 15 beautiful protective hairstyles you can try any time of the year:
