Black Hairstyles


on fire


Upgrade your look this season with this sassy style that’s guaranteed to make your admirers do a double take.

Get the look: JAfter the hair has been shampooed and blow-dried, mold the hair with a styling cream and sit under the dryer. Using a flat iron, create curls throughout the entire mane and use your fingers to tousle tresses in the direction you would like them to go. This will also create subtle volume in the silhouette.



It’s the details that count, and this sexy snip doesn’t miss a beat.

Get the look: This is cut is achieved with a one-finger elevation snip at the mid-shaft and the back gets a rough Fade with clippers. Strands are point cut by lightly trimming the tips to take some volume off the top. Next, the mane is cut using a razor-like technique. The hair is then smoothed with a flat iron and misted with shine spray for glossy tresses.



Glamourous style is all yours with this gorgeous mane.

Get the look:  Relaxed tresses are given a blonde color wash to make the shade pop, and then the hair is washed with color-preserving shampoo and conditioner. Next the hair is washed and conditioned before being Wrapped, molded and dried. Strands are then snipped short with clippers and golden blonde tracked are glued in the front for extra length.
