Let’s be honest, after a while of wearing hair extensions and your weave repeatedly, your hair needs a break and what better time to do just that than in the summer when the sun is hot, and you definitely don’t want your hair in your face.
You might think that you don’t have many options when it comes to short natural hairstyles for black women but the reality is very different. Make yourself a cup of tea (or grab yourself a glass of wine) and get ready to be amazed.
Natural Curls + Caramel Highlights
If you’re going through the motions of growing out your natural hair, why not add a vibrant splash of color? These natural curls have been cleverly livened up with some caramel highlights along the top and ends, adding a brand new dimension.
Natural Mohawk Haircut
If you’re going short, why not go brave and super short? This natural mohawk haircut is a brave one, but for no muss and no fuss, you can’t really beat it.
Tapered Curls With Edge Control
This short, tapered curly style makes use of laid down edges to create some shape and dimension around the face. Choosing the proper product for this style is key, as some edge control tends to flake or lose its hold throughout the day. If you plan on wearing this style two days in a row, wetting your edges to reactivate a strong hold product instead of piling more on top.
Short Natural Hairstyle with Shaved Sides
If you’re going back to basics and leaving your natural hair to bounce free for a while, make sure you don’t over-wash it. The main point of going au naturel is to do your hair a favor, you’re not going to be doing that by washing it every day.
TWA Hairstyle (Teeny Weeny Afro)
If you don’t want hair that’s going to get int he way this summer, the TWA or teeny weeny afro is definitely one of the coolest looks!
Super Short, Blonde Haircut
Amber Rose is a fan of this look – super short and sassy blonde too! We love it, it’s fierce, feisty and fabulous.
