Black Hairstyles


Leave a lasting impression with this show-stopping upsweep.
Get the look: Wash and condition Natural tresses and apply a heat-protecting leave-in conditioner. Blow-dry strands and use a styling gel to slick them into a high ponytail secured with a covered elastic band. Wrap long extensions around the base of the ponytail and secure with hairpins. Then wrap a long strand around the base to cover the elastic. Complete the look by using a one-inch curling wand and paddle brush to add waves, and top with a fun hair accessory.

Demand attention with this stylish coif.
Get the look: After tresses have been straightened, fashion the hair into a high bun, leaving out a small section at the front of the crown. Using 26-inch tracks of Brazilian hair, secure a small piece of extensions to the bun. Once the ponytail is crafted, wrap a small piece of extensions around the base to cover the tracks. The hair in the front is then curled with a flat iron to add volume.

Step up your style with a powerful ponytail.
Get the look: Locks are washed, conditioned and coated with a heat protectant before blow-drying. The mane is separated in three sections and a flat iron is used to press tresses on both sides. In the middle, extensions are placed backward to create volume and straighten hair into a pompadour shape. Apply styling pomade before pulling the ends into a ponytail at the crown. Apply sheen spray to the coif for a silky finish.
