Hairstyles that complement black hair include the asymmetrical bob, long bob, high bun updo, short spiky haircut and medium wavy haircut. Some hairstyles that look great on natural black hair include a curly Mohawk, flat twists, short layered curls, sleek finger coils and twist-outs.
Avoid choosing a hairstyle that requires a lot of flat ironing, blow drying or curling. The heat may eventually lead to hair damage, as it fractures the bond of natural wave and curl patterns. Always use a heat protecting spray before applying heat to hair. To help repair hair damage or breakage, deep condition weekly with a quality conditioner.
