Black Hairstyles

Texture Packed

The trend this season is all about texture! Choppy, tousled texture will instantly transform a look from blah to bam! We’re showing off the power of great cuts, lush layers and expert styling here…

Piecy Perfect
What an intricate silhouette!
Get the look: This mane really shows how versatile pixie cuts are. To style this coif, black extensions are bonded on. Then, using shears, locks are cut short and layered heavily internally. Finally stylist Gail Lett-Anderson, of Attitudez Hair Exquisite in Pensacola, FL, used a flat iron to flip layers into the desired shape.


So Sharp
This crop featured just the right amount of edge.
Get the look: Natural melted chocolate strands are highlighted with shades of bronze. The mane is styled into a cute pixie crop with a little extra length left above the forehead. Waves are styled on the side and strands on top or pulled straight out for texture. This hairdo comes from hair pro Bridgett Harrison, of Bridgett Harrison Salon in Dallas, TX.


Effortless Edginess
A short cut fit for the fearless and trendy.
Get the look: This hairstyle was created on relaxed hair. Locks are cut into a sassy snip. Hair along the middle is tinted a sweet cranberry color along the tips for a pop of color and to really show off the layers on top. The look’s stylist, Jamelle “Cookie” Holley of Immaculate Inc. in District Heights, MD, use a flat iron to flip hair into a cute design.
