If you are a black woman, you’ve probably spent a lot of time finding a hairstyle that suits you. Depending on where you live, you might not have much exposure to styles that really suit you, or maybe you’re just ready for a change. There are lots of styles that work especially well for black women; the problem is just finding them!
Many black women relax and then perm their hair to give it a softer, smoother texture, but the thing to remember about this look is that your hair can become quite damaged in the process. When you add bleaching on top of this, this can strip your hair quite badly. Experts recommend that if you decide to take this route, you should not do it all at once; if you can take a few days between relaxing your hair and perming it, you can keep it a bit healthier in general. If your hair has been relaxed, consider getting loose, flowing curls. This can create a soft, sweet look and goes well in a variety of different settings.
If you are interested in coloring your hair, don’t just go with something you saw that looked good on someone else! Your skin tone is uniquely your own, so make sure you’ve considered the color you want your hair next to it. While various shades of honey blond are common, you might also want to consider various reds. Everything from a dusky, nearly pink to a vibrant crimson is possible, so don’t limit yourself just by what you see around you. Remember that dye jobs will require a bit of regular maintenance, but that you can always dye it back to black as well.
If you have a particularly angular face shape, you might want to consider a style that will soften it. Keeping your hair in long braids,whether natural or with hair extensions will give you a fuller-face shape. When you keep your hair in this style, it is fairly easy to maintain after the initial set up and there are a variety of styles that you can play with afterwards. Some places have terrific deals on doing things like intricate braids and cornrows and this can give you a wonderfully unique look.
If you’re looking for a clean-cut professional look, consider a close crop or bob. You can’t beat this style in terms of easy hair care daily styling, but remember that if you keep your hair short, you will want to have it cut regularly to maintain that razor-sharp appearance. This is a wonderful look for the woman who is on the go and doesn’t have half an hour to worry about her hair in the morning.
Whether you are embarking on a major life change and want something to commemorate that, or you just want to spice up your old style, remember that your hair is your own! You should do whatever makes you feel the most comfortable and whatever will make you feel like the beautiful woman you are.
