Black Hairstyles


Be bold and go for the chop. This season, short cuts are the style. Whether you’re snipping off your Natural lengths or switching your look with a wig, show off short lengths in a variety of dazzling colors and styles.

Cocoa Tresses

Warm up your short hair with cocoa and nutmeg hues.
Get the look: Brunette locks are first painted with hints of orange and red throughout the crown and then set with a Wrapping foam under a dry. Next, blow-dry tresses with cream shine enhancer and curl hair in alternating directions to emulate the fingerwave style. Flip locks upward at the hairline and smooth edges with styling wax.

Fabulous Fringe

A partly shaven style gives off a confident and sexy vibe—all the more reason you should go short.
Get the look: Hair is washed and relaxed before clippers are used to shave one side of the head and create detail with fine lines. Lengths are then smoothed down with styling gel and set under a dryer. Bond extensions to the longer section of the hair and cut with a razor for piecey, sideswept bangs. Add a touch of hairspray for hold.

Raspberry Ringlets

Kissed with crimson, spirals are tightly styled for a stunning, short style.
Get the look: After cleansing deep red mane, mold them under a dryer. Use clippers to gradually cut strands at the nape of the neck and the sides. Extensions are then bonded through the crown in a burgundy shade and ringlets are formed tightly for a voluminous style with added detail and length on the crown. Spray hairspray for all-day hold.
