This is one of my favorite short hairstyles for black women.
With some standing up strands of hair and some falling, it looks extremely stylish and classy for the modern day African-American woman.
Small, straight but random strands of hair make this a top choice for both casual and more formal occasions.
If you don’t mind straightening your hair, this is a style that may suit you down to the ground. The cut goes just below the chin, although you can have it a bit higher or lower depending on your preference. This is another hairstyle which is lop sided, covering one side of your face more than the other. It is a cut that can help highlight your neck if that’s your goal.
This fun and flirty look will brighten your entire face. The swoops of hair are daring without being too dramatic, and the upturned ends turn it into a whimsical cut. The highlights are just subtle enough to be stylish without calling attention to themselves; a bronze, auburn or light brown will look great with African-American skin tones.
These neatly tailored bangs make this a very conservative look, perfect for the office or for class. The great part about bangs is that even if the rest of your hair refuses to behave, as long as your bangs are neatly trimmed, you will look put-together. If your face is sharp and angular, slightly curled bangs will soften your features. If your face is round, then straight bangs will add an edge.
This is the perfect look for people with thin and/or very short hair because it makes your hair look longer and fuller. The touselled style makes this an easy style to maintain: Simply spritz with liquid moisturizer in the morning, run your hand through your locks, and set it with gel or hairspray. If you’re a gal on the go, this is the look for you!
If you’re like me, sometimes your hair refuses to grow down; it just grows up. If you have thick curls that aren’t long enough to drop, then this is the perfect style in between teeny-weeny afro (TWA) and loose locks. This is also a great wash-and-go look for 3c/4a or 4a hair. After washing, simply run your curl-defining leave-in conditioner through it, dry with cool air, and then rock!
If you’re not afraid to be bold and turn some heads, this is the look for you. It’s simple for relaxed hair: apply styling gel, comb through, and set the hairstyle with a cold blow dryer or with hairspray. See this shorter look on superstar comedian Leslie Jones.
