Black Hairstyles


Create buzz with the hottest trend of the moment: shaved sides. Shaved sides are incredibly versatile and can be worn with all coif lengths, and spruced up with a bold pop of color, edgy fringe or hair-raising styles.

Platinum Strands
Icy hot strands are styled to new heights in this pixie mane. Get the look: This sassy snip gives a whole new meaning to attitude. Created by Keya Neal of Kolour Kulture in Gambrills, MD, the sides are cut extremely low, while platinum-hued tresses at the crown are kept long and styled into a trendy fauxhawk. Shaved, caramel-hued sides add a beautiful contrast to the white-hot color on top. Beautiful fringe falls in front of the face for an alluring design.

Shades Of Purple
Take your mane moves to the next level with shaved sides and a pop of vibrant color.
Get the look: Bold purple and raven locks never looked so stylish. This look, created by Bridgett of Blueprint Mobile Station in Petersburg, VA, is snipped just below the ears and sides are shaved extremely low for a buzz-worthy mane. Lengthy fringe is painted with purple and straightened to perfection for a two-toned mane that is impossible to resist.

Dial Up The Drama
Shaved sides next to curly lengths demand attention and allure.
Get the look: Ebony tendrils tumble forward from the crown, boasting bouncy, touchable texture, as sleek, snipped strands at one side add a totally edgy vibe. Designed by Romeo Crews of Stylistics Hair Salon in Decatur, GA, this snip combines sexy and edgy into one look.
