African American Short Hairstyles

Do you think that African American short hairstyles aren’t for you? Do you think that you have to have straight hair or relaxed hair in order to have short hair? Well, here’s a list of African American short hairstyles—for several different types of African American hair!

First, you have the obvious mini-fro. Of course, you’re probably thinking that’s not going to look so great on girls. However, what you’re forgetting is that you can take a mini-fro—which is just one of many great African American short hairstyles—and you can decorate it and make it more feminine. Clips, barrettes, headbands, and all of the other items that fall into that category are perfect for decorating your fro and making it ten times as girly and cute.

Next, you have the pixie cut. African American hair is great for pixie cuts—because it’s a bit more manageable and less likely to frizz than Caucasian hair. It might require a wrap overnight (although this is also true of Caucasian hair, believe it or not), but once all is said and done, a pixie is one of many cute African American short hairstyles.

Then, you have braids—even if you have short hair, braids are a great option for keeping your hair neat and out of the way. Not to mention that it’s way cooler in the summer when you really don’t want your hair getting all sweaty and gross and sticking to the back of your neck. It doesn’t matter what texture your hair is for this—wavy, curly, straight, or anywhere in between. If you want beads, you might have to let your hair grow out a bit (sure, not many people put beads in their hair anymore, but it could be an interesting style to bring back!).

These are just a few examples of African American short hairstyles. What are your favorite African American short hairstyles?

Long Curly Hair Styles

Long curly hair styles can be lots of fun—after all, they’re unique. Not a lot of people have curly hair. But, if you don’t have curly hair, how precisely do you achieve what you’re looking for?

First of all, find  means of curling your hair. You can use overnight rollers, hot rollers, paper bags (If you search paper bag hair curling, you’ll come across loads of ways to curl your hair using paper or bags!), anything that you can think of that can help you achieve your long, curly hair styles.

Next, you need to decide how tight your long curly hair styles are going to be. You can choose from really tight spiral curls (which unfortunately rarely look real if you have very straight hair naturally), or looser, almost-wave-like curls. Check around and find the best method for getting the curls that you want. It may take some time to play around with it, but once you get it, it’s done!

Next, decide what you’ll use in your long curly hair styles. For example, if you’re going to use gel or hairspray on your curls to keep them in. You should also decide on a heat protectant to use if you plan on using hot rollers or anything of that nature. Hairspray isn’t a bad idea—but it doesn’t normally last too long in long curly hair styles.

Have fun playing—and feel free to experiment with extensions that are unnatural colors. It can be a bit hard to curl these types of extensions, but if you take the time to look into ways that you can curl them without damaging the extension, it shouldn’t be a problem!

These are just a few examples of ways that you can curl long curly hair styles—what are your favorite long curly hair styles? 

Short Bob Hairstyles

If you’ve never had short bob hairstyles, then you may not know what it takes to style this type of haircut. However, it’s actually way, way, way easier than you might think. The main thing to keep in mind is that:

1. Anyone can work with short bob hairstyles. Anyone can have their hair cut in a short bob hairstyle—it’s way easier than you might think.

2. Any hair texture and face type works with this type of haircut. The main thing to do is to talk with your stylist and have them figure out what would look best—it will take a tiny bit of adapting, but, once again ANYONE can have their hair cut into short bob hairstyles.

The first thing you need to know about short bob hairstyles is that they will require a heat protectant—assuming that you use a blow dryer, straightener, or curling iron of any form. You definitely want this if you’re going to style your hair, since you don’t want to end up with damaged hair.

Next, you need to have everything that you need to style your hair. This includes a rattail comb, a brush, gel or mousse, and any other products that you need. If you use any heat, you’ll need the protectant, as mentioned above. Short bob hairstyles aren’t really has hard to maintain as they might seem from this article—here’s an example.

For one, for short bob hairstyles, you probably want to blow dry them. So, heat protectant and maybe ten to fifteen minutes blow-drying on low after combing. You might want to brush it while it’s being straightened so that it doesn’t lie flat. Then, you might add a bit of mousse. That should take no more than maybe ten, twenty minutes, depending on the length of your hair. Straightening short bob hairstyles would take up to ten minutes….maybe twenty…longer, depending on how agreeable your hair is.

These are just a few things you should know about styling short bob hairstyles—and the length of time it takes!
