African American Women’s Hairstyles Are Growing
Many women like the look of a long, flowing ponytail with a side swept back and a small amount of hair at the front. This looks great on almost all face types, although women with very straight hair may not want to wear a side bang because it will tend to make their hair appear shorter than it actually is. A side swept back is a great hairstyle for almost everyone, whether you have long or short hair. A short hair braid is also a great hairstyle for women who are looking for a little edgier look. Most women do not like their hair looking too flat so it is a good idea to try to add some volume to your hair with a clip in hair extension or perhaps a curling iron.
One of the most popular hairstyles for African Americans, which is popular with women of all ages, is the Afro braid. The afro braid is a great way to incorporate several different looks into one hairstyle. You can either have your hair in a natural state, with your hair hanging down in the back, or you can choose to have your hair in a tight braid, which will look great when pulled up into a ponytail. This is a favorite of many African American women, because it is easy to care for, and it is easy to use the various different styles that are available to give you the look you are going for.
Braiding is another hairstyle for African American women that is growing in popularity. Braids are great when you need a simple, up do but you want something a little different then your average salon style. Braids are usually done using an interchanging system where you can go from short braid to medium braid, and then back again to get a different look each time.
