Styles For Black Woman

Hairstyles for black women often rely on simple fros to grab attention and turn heads. Choose from various hues and style it with an eye-catching bandana for that boho chic aesthetic.

Jumbo Box Braids

One of the most beautiful black hairstyles for women is a puffy ponytail. This classic style works best on curlier locks; create a deep side part and smooth down with protective serum for added gorgeousness. A face-framing twist and an adorable marble elastic band add charm and interest to this style. Perfect for showing off long rope braids while giving it a retro vibe from the 1990s!

Alicia Keys’ Kinky Curls

Alicia Keys demonstrates how to take advantage of the volume in her kinky curls by creating a high ponytail from them and using a subtle headband to cover its elastic.


Cornrows have become an iconic style. Not only are they intricate and protective, but their versatility suits many aesthetics; you can wear cornrows in various patterns. Pair them with a top knot for an elegant look, or add color with lilac extensions for an unexpected splash. Fulani braids combine straight-back cornrows and curly kinky twists and look fantastic.

Box Braids

Box braids are an exciting and fashionable way to style your hair. These bold strands can be created using any color and woven with gold beads for an eye-catching effect. Additionally, you can wear this style in various ways, like side swoop or half up-half down. Large box braids make an eye-catching statement. From French braids and fishtail styles to high braided ponytails like Janet Jackson donned in Poetic Justice, Nubian, and Havana twists offer many possibilities when styling braided bobs.

Wavy Curls

Curly hair can make for an eye-catching yet feminine style statement. Short curly pixie cuts with side shaves make a strong statement, or you can opt for long and playful curls as in the case of Alicia Keys at the Michael Kors fashion show; she opted for an adorable long curly bob with bangs that was soft yet stylish for all natural hair textures and faces alike. Try a high curly ponytail or top knot for an effortless yet chic style that can be achieved any day of the week. Not only is this classic style versatile and stylish, but it can also serve to enhance natural copper or golden highlights in your hair. Speak to your stylist about adding balayage or lowlights for even greater depth in your locks.


Dreadlocks are an expressive way to show off your individuality and express yourself. Not only are they decorative, but they’re also protective styles – locking in moisture and keeping hair healthy! Dreadlocks have long been associated with Rastafarian culture. Try something different regarding braided dreads: tight Bantu knots that add style. Perfect for casual or formal events, this look keeps your locks secure throughout the day! Enhance your dreads with some vibrant yarn to add an eye-catching accent. It looks equally lovely on natural or synthetic dreads!

Finger Waves

Try the soft finger waves hairstyle for an effortlessly cute and effortless style. Pair this look with any simple T-shirt or dress for a night out, especially those featuring mid-length locks. Additionally, black women with mid-length locks tend to find it incredibly flattering – the key here is making sure your locks are damp when starting and using plenty of gel or hairspray for long-lasting definition. An otherwise standard textured pixie cut can become even more stunning and arresting when bleached a vibrant red shade, which contrasts beautifully with dark roots and showcases its wavy texture. It’s the ideal bold-and-sexy statement piece for any black woman seeking to stand out with her style.
