Black Hairstyles

Super-Long Length

There’s nothing sexier than sultry, extra-long lengths! Take your coif to the next level to get red carpet-worthy tresses a la Taraji P. Henson. Accessorize long lengths with fabulous layers, sexy fringe or a pop of color—the choice is yours!

A Fringe Story
A sleek, super-long coif with heavy fringe looks flawless.
Get the look: This straight styles serves up the ultimate edge with its awesome length and bold bangs. Mane pro Ebunniee, in Kokomo, IN, created this gorgeous look with heavy fringe grazing lashes. Strands frame the face and lengths cascade down to there.

Powerful Ponytail
A sleek ponytail is out of this world with slicked-back strands and gorgeous length.
Get the look: A lengthy pony takes center stage for this magnificent mane, created by Paulette Orenuga of Hair Care Center in Laurel, MD. Dark strands are pulled taut in a ponytail. Tresses cascade almost to the hop for an exaggerated silhouette.

Luxe Lengths
Flowing lengths flaunt flirty waves and gorgeous shine!
Get the look: Can this look get any more stunning? Whether you’re heading out on a date or a night on the town, recreate this style by Latanya Williams of Premier 1 On 1 Salon in San Diego, CA. Smooth lengths spill from a subtle side part and transform into loose curls from the mid-shaft to the ends. Love!
