Black women who are tired of chemically straightening their hair or carefully teasing a comb through a natural Afro are increasingly turning to trendy short hairstyles. Because black women’s hair comes in all kinds of textures, each individual woman needs to speak with her stylist about the best hairstyle for her.
Some of the best short hairstyles for black women can be seen on black celebrities.
Mary J. Blige rocks a pixie cut with long, curled bangs in the front that sweep across her forehead. She colors these bangs an attractive caramel-blond, which looks great with her skin tone. Jennifer Hudson recently impressed on red carpets with a thick feathered short cut, with jagged bangs and an ultra-shiny finish. Amber Rose shaves her head with a close buzz cut and dyes it platinum blond. It’s a striking look for the model and reality star.
Then there’s the queen of short black hair – Halle Berry. Over the years she’s sported several variations of her closely cropped pixie cut, but she always looks classic, timeless and eminently stylish. No wonder she went to court to prevent her daughter’s father, from who she is estranged, from chemically altering their daughter’s hair!
