Sure, hot tools can come in handy, but when used on the regular, there's potential for damaged strands (not to mention the fact that they can take up quite a bit time in the morning). Since we’d rather not spend hours in the bathroom styling and frying our hair, we compiled some of the best no-heat hairstyles for natural hair on Pinterest. 

Want to show off your volume? Try adding a hair accessory into the mix. Looking for a polished style that's appropriate for the office? Braid your bangs into a textured bun. Or perhaps you want to show off your curls. If so, we highly recommend piling them into a messy topknot with a few face-framing ringlets. No matter the style you chose, these 10 no-heat hairstyles will amplify the beauty that is your natural texture.

Braid back face-framing layers to show off your natural volume like model and vlogger Bianca Alexa.

Set your curls with Moroccanoil's Curl Defining Cream ($34); then pile them atop your head for a fun twist on the typical topknot.

Having a good bang day? Twist the body of your hair into a chignon, making sure to leave your bangs out. The finished look: a fauxhawk/updo hybrid.

Skip the ponytail, and opt instead for a scarf to keep your hair out of your face.

For a sophisticated hairstyle that doesn't require any hot tools, braid back your bangs into a chic low bun.

You don't even have to let your hair dry before attempting this look. Simply braid back your hair, twirl it into a bun, pin in place, and finish off with a bit of R+Co's Outer Space Hairspray ($29).

Effortlessly chic, this tousled messy bun with face-framing ringlets is the perfect everyday hairstyle for summer. To keep frizz under control, set curls with Bumble and Bumble's Curl Defining Creme ($31) before twirling your hair into a bun.

Want to add intrigue to an otherwise simple ponytail? Add a colorful scarf like Free People's Beach Club Bandana ($18) to your crown.

As far as we're concerned, you can never rock too many braids.

When in doubt, a high volume ponytail is always a good idea. So as not to crimp your curly tresses, fasten your pony with Urban Outfitters Telephone Cord Hair Ties ($8).
