Black Hairstyles


You can have amazing hair and this sleek mane proves that statement to be true!
Get the look: Make this look yours by washing and blow-drying hair before braiding tresses into a circular pattern. Sew-in extensions and then frame the face by cutting the coif into long layers. Coat the extensions with a thermal straightener and smooth over with a flat iron for a silky texture.

Slay the scene with sleek, sexy strands.
Get the look: luxurious length for a stylish, sassy vibe. Next, a razor and shears are used to carve out a fabulous, blunt-cut bang that stops just short of the eyelashes. Using a one-inch ceramic flat-iron, straighten hair smooth and add a slight bend to your bangs for a full voluminous shape.

Steal the spotlight with Natural ebony locks with a sleek and glossy look.
Get the look: Hair is washed, conditioned and blow-dried with a heat protectant before midnight-black and golden-blonde extensions are added. Strands are then splashed with a shine spirtz for extra gloss, and pressed using a straighter. After carving out a side part, fringe is lightly curled under with a flat iron to create a feathered effect. A lightweight oil tops off the style, giving it a shiny, sultry finish.
