Black Hairstyles


on fire


Put a stylish twist (no pun intended) on your coif with a light brown hue.

Get the look: To maximize your styling options when rocking Marley Twists, add a contrasting color to give your look that extra oomph. The front section of twists is shaded with a chocolate hue, making this style stand out from the crowd.



Demand attention with a half updo that exudes confidence.

Get the look: Leaving half of the twists down in the back, take the front section and French braid the twists over to one side. Once the braiding is done, pin the braid the down with hairpins for an alluring silhouette.



The twisted tendrils make for a gorgeous style that’s ultra chic.

Get the look: Don’t get stuck in a rut when styling your Marley Twists. For a different look, sweep the twists over to one side for a glam profile. You may have to use hairpins to keep twists in place, but this mane will have eyes on you all day.
