Black Hairstyles

Playful Crowns

Elevate your short cut with a dash of length in front. A lengthy crown adds tons of styling potential and creates a sassy and stylish silhouette. Sleek, layered or curled—it doesn’t matter! It all looks amazing!

Raspberry Dipped

Molded sides are paired with fruit punch dipped spirals

Get the look: Strands are snipped short on the sides and back, tapering as they fall, and molded into waves. Amanda Pritchett of Exclusively Amanda in Waldorf, MD, styled longer hair on top into defined spirals and added colored extensions to enhance the coif.

 

Delicate Mohawk

An edgy silhouette detailed with chic, choppy layers.

Get the look: Sides are cropped close with a bit of extra length left down the nape to achieve the Mohawk shape. To style Katrice Thompkins, of Katrice Thompkins Productions in Charlotte, NC, used a flat iron to smooth the layers created throughout then applied gel to play up texture.

Go Bold

Negative space detailing and a pop of color oh-so hot.

Get the look: For the sides and back, Precious Carter of Precious Healing HairCare in Richmond, CA, used a razor cutting technique. Lightweight gel and foam Wrap lotion are used to sleek strands down while negative space details are styled above the ear. A few wefts of extensions are added into the fringe and hair is curled into bouncy ringlets.
