Black Hairstyles


on fire


Make a fierce mane move with voluminous curls that will make your admirers stare in

Get the look: After the hair has been shampooed and blow-dried, dark strands with brown highlights are first snipped to frame the face. Tresses are then formed into ringlets with a small curling iron and teased for a voluptuous silhouette. Spray with a light oil for maximum shine.



Dance the night away with this volume-infused mane of Natural curls.

Get the look: Create flat twists with Natural hair using foam wrap lotion and sit under the dryer for about an hour or until the strands are completely dry. Then one-inch sections are pieced out and finished with oil sheen. Cover curls with a silk bonnet before bed and mist with shine spray in the morning.



Channel your inner superstar with this elegant updo.

Get the look:  Natural hair is cleansed and pressed to achieve a Natural texture. Next, tresses are gathered at the nape and plaited toward the crown, where lengths are left loose. The hair is then pincurled and set under a hood dryer for 15 minutes. To finish, the curls are finger-combed to create a tousled texture and fabulous profile.
