Black Hairstyles

Soft Waves

Bring texture to your coif with waves—no matter what length you rock. Soft waves can warm up a lengthy look or a short coif. Take your look to the next level with this texture and style idea…

Awash In Lavender
Flawless waves are styled to perfection in this lengthy mane.
Get the look: These pretty waves, crafted by Bowie, MD, stylist LaTanya Porter are made to look even more stunning when dipped in a subtle lavender hue with a subtle touch of silver. Use a large curling iron to add shapely waves from mid-shaft to ends.

Curves Galore
Curvy waves are beautiful, especially when they’re formed in a cute, short cut!
Get the look: Stylist Aiko Love, of Aja Blue Salon in Lanham, MD, leaves the crown purposely longer on this cute cut in order to shape strands into wavy perfection with a curling wand. In contrast, sleek sides balance the effect perfectly.

Bold Bob Contrast
Turn heads with a traffic-stopping trim flaunting both sleek and wavy textures!
Get the look: Created by stylist Sherita Wilson, of Dreams Hair Salon in Birmingham, AL, this Quick-Weave style is unforgettable. Snip strands into a layered bob, leaving lengths longer on one side. Silken one side and back with a flat iron then use a large curling wand to shape curvy waves on the opposite sides. With this dual-texture look you’ll prove opposites are attractive!
