Black Hairstyles

Luxurious Lengths

Nothing says glam like down-to-there lengths. We’re seeing it all over Hollywood: stars are flaunting exaggerated lengths designed to draw attention. This trend is the perfect way to make you feel sexy, sassy and flirty.

Mermaid Mane
Oceanic shades and long length is a marvelous match.
Get the look: For this look Caprice King, of C.H.O.W. Bella Salon in Washington, DC, created a custom wig using lengthy, human hair extensions. Gunmetal and bright silver are used as the base and a “Pixel Art” coloring technique is used in the bang resulting in sea-worthy blue and green hues.


So Sleek
These sleek tresses are a glamorista’s dream.
Get the look: Thank hairdresser Mikyla Cunningham, of New Attitudez Hair in Pensacola, FL, for this stunning style. Honey hued strands flawlessly transition to a warm brunette shade as they fall past the shoulders. A super-slick texture and long, thick fringe are the perfect finishing touches.


This mane has style power and sass.
Get the look: After Natural hair is cleansed and braided down a long, ebony custom, synthetic unit with a lightweight bang is installed to create a stunning base. For the pops of crimson, individual ruby wefts are added throughout. Stylist Cykethia Kumani, of VIP Hair Services in Lanham, MD, is the mane maven behind this coif.
