Trend Of The Moment
Go back to the basics with a jet-black shade that radiates your mane with a glossy shine.

CURLY CROPLook fierce with this ebony snip styled into an edgy faux-hawk. The sides are tapered low while longer lengths on top are fashioned into chic spirals for a fabulous silhouette that’s sure to turn heads.  
FAB FRINGE Illuminate your mane with uber-shiny locks that drape past the shoulders for a sensual profile. The black tresses are smoothed over for a sleek texture while the blunt bang frames the face perfectly.
NATURAL BEAUTY Show off your standout style with this gorgeous Afro that will have all eyes on you. A curl cream is applied to strands to help define curls before the coiled locks are combed out to create maximum volume.  



We loved Nicki Minaj when she rocked her ever-changing wigs in eye-catching hues, but there’s something about her jet-black tresses that we absolutely adore. Some would say she’s “toned it down,” but we think she never looked better! Her raven locks scream sophistication and her style game is always on point. Here, the Feelin’ Myself singer rocks a chic coif with sleek stands that evolve into soft waves with a straight-across bang for a fabulous finish.
