Black Hairstyles


Sometimes a great mane is all about the details. Bangs are an easy and effective way to upgrade your look. You can go bold with a thick, straight fringe or subtler with a playful, feathered frame. Whatever look works for you, you’ve got to try out this fun mane detail.

Sharp Ends
This stunning mane is all about great angles and fabulous style.
Get the look: Jet-black strands are razor-cut into a perfect symmetrical, blunt bob. The fringe is snipped very short and left flawlessly straight. Use a flat iron to slick hair down and gently turn under for an outstanding silhouette. Finish with your favorite shine product.

Curved Edges
The combination of flirty waves and vibrant color make this coif truly amazing.
Get the look: Dark-brown tresses are snipped into a short pixie with length left at the crown. The crown is kissed with magenta and further detailed with strokes of baby pink. Length is transformed into sweeping curves that fall in plush layers over the brow into soft “bangs.”

Faux Fringe
Party like a rock star with this event-ready faux-hawk.
Get the look: Tresses are colored with cherry, wine and brick shades of red throughout. The sides are pulled into the center to create a Mohawk shape. Try flat-twisting wet hair and allowing to dry; release the twists and tousle until you get the desired shape. Hair tapers over the nose to create curly bangs.
