Some of the best short hairstyles for black women are pixie cuts, bobs and bowl cuts. A haircut and some maintenance and styling is all that is required to achieve these styles.
Pixie cuts can be worn in a myriad ways as seen on Halle Berry, Rihanna and NeNe Leaks on Beauty.about.com. To achieve Halle Berry's pixie hairstyle, hair must be relaxed and cut into a pixie style as hers is according to Instyle.com. To style it, a large dollop of sculpting serum is worked into the hair with hands and then combed through with a one-inch ceramic brush in order to pull hair towards the face. Bobs are worn straight or textured, with and without bangs and in varying lengths. Some celebrities who have worn bobs hairstyles are Taraji P. Henson, Mary J. Blige and Beyonce Knowles. Bobs require hair to be relaxed, cut and styled according to personal preferences.
