Messy short hairstyles for black women
When it comes to messy hairstyles, the main idea is to create a hairstyle that will look like you’ve just woken up. However, the real “I Just Woke Up” hairstyles are often not the thing you’d like to show to the world, so these messy cuts are more like the stylish imitations of the morning look.

They all are relaxed, very simple (which means it won’t take too long to maintain these hairstyles in the morning) and of course, each of them will be a great choice for your short, black hair.

Black women short hairstyles with bangs
Bangs are a perfect tool for those who wanna frame the face and express a personal style. You can make dramatic side bangs, romantic and feminine blunt fringe, trendy and modern short bangs or side-swept bangs that will show your beautiful eyes off. It’s only you who makes the choice, actually.
And of course, we are happy to help you with making the right choice! Check these four pictures above — these pretty short hairstyles with bangs will 100% work great for every black woman. We can guarantee it!
Very short haircuts for black women with round faces
Full chicks? Rounded jaw shape? Equal face length and width? Not a problem at all.
Yeah, we know that lots of women think that round is not the best face shape type — but a good haircut can solve this problem easily. Of course, short bob haircuts, blunt cuts and short haircuts with straight bangs will not work well for your face shape — because the main idea is to make your face look longer and more oval. You should try something different — like, a short updo, a pixie haircut or a mohawk with shaved sides and back. Take a look at the photos and choose!

Tips on how to style short black hair
We’ve already said it: there are hundreds of interesting short haircuts for black women. We don’t know which one will you choose, so it makes sense that we can’t provide any tips for your particular hairstyle. However, there are some common rules that will help you to care for your hair and to make it look even better. Maybe you already know them, but we believe it isn’t a problem at all.
So, at first: don’t wash your short black hair often. Washing it once per week is enough — or, if you do it more frequently, use a sulfate free shampoo. Your hair is already dry enough, so there’s no need to make it drier.
If you use gels, use only the hair products that were designed for the African American hair. It’s about dryness again.
Trim your hair regularly. We bet that you prefer healthy hair and that you don’t like split ends — in this case, you’ll have to trim it every 6-8 weeks. Btw, avoiding curling and straightening can help solve the split ends problems, too. A sleep cap made of satin will work great, too, if you want to prevent split ends.
Dryness is basically the main problem most of African American women with short hair have. Making a hot oil treatment will work perfect for your dry hair/scalp — and of course, increasing the circulation of blood is always a great thing. Both thick and thin hair needs oil, that’s a fact.
Use a heat protection spray, cream or serum — it’s a great way to minimize the heat damage. However, we highly recommend to avoid heat at all — of course, you can treat your hair and fix the problem afterward, but it would be better not to damage your hair, right?
Too tight isn’t good. When it comes to braids or cornrows, pain means damage — so if it hurts, just stop it.
Deep condition your hair. The ends are the most vulnerable part of your hair, so you’ll have to do everything to save them. Deep conditioning is one of those things that will help you.
That’s all, basically. These tips will help you to save your hair, and if your hair is healthy, you’ll be able to try every short hairstyle from this article. Like, these four — they are great, right?
