Popular short hairstyles for ebony hair include a short pixie cut and a side-parted pixie cut, which work well with a variety of clothing and jewelry options. Another popular hairstyle is a curly bob with bangs that works well with heart-shaped faces. Some other trendy styles include a conservative mohawk, a curly up-style with funky curls, a half-shaved look and the "First Lady," which mimics Michelle Obama's short, stylish locks.
Another popular style for ebony hair includes a honey-kissed swirl that has a hint of old Hollywood glamour with its deep side part and vintage wave. A voluminous bob, asymmetrical styles, pin-curled and wavy bobs, blunt bowls cuts, lobs and a variety of pixie cuts are all highly popular, as well.
To customize these popular looks, women can add highlights or change the color altogether. From platinum blond to caramel hues to raspberry red, the shade and highlighting of the cut transform the style. They can also change up the style by moving the part, spiking it up, sleeking it down or combing it back for another twist on these popular cuts.
Another popular option is to add a short curly weave or braids for texture, or play up the hair's natural texture to bring out a short hairstyle. Sleek short styles are also in vogue.
