Black Hairstyles

Bold Blunt Bangs

Every fearless fashionista knows how stunning a blunt cut can be. Sharp edges instantly transform any cut into an edgy, enticing silhouette. Take your look to the next level with these straight fringed ‘dos!

Captivating Cut

A multi-toned brilliant bob

Get the look: Stylist Caprice King, of C.H.O.W. Bella Salon in Washington, DC, created this look by designing a custom wig. Bundles of 10-inch extensions are dyed to produce a bleach-blonde ombre effect, leaving the roots dark. Yellow highlights are added to the front and the hair is cut into a sharp, geometric bob.


Fierce Fringe

A rounded short cut with a straight bang

Get the look: Milk chocolate roots effortlessly transition to a yummy honey for this coif by Terriniese McFarland from E & E Hair Studio in Bowie, MD. Strands are snipped into a trendy bob shape and the sides are turned under to wrap around the curves of the face to contrast with the blunt bang.

Bold Colors

Vibrant colors help this edgy cut stand out

Get the look: The brilliant hues on these tresses are blended together to create this charismatic coif. Caprice King, from C.H.O.W. Bella Salon in Washington, DC, tinted raven tresses a wild lime green and plum. Hair is cut into a long bob with a lengthy section left on one side. A smooth bang is the perfect finishing touch!
