A hairstyle can express the type of person we are or want to be. It offers a uniqueness about our personality. There are numerous hairstyles that look good but one, in particular, is becoming popular. Short curly hairstyles are trending and look amazing with virtually any face structure. This type of haircut is fun, manageable, and flirty. There are several different styles that can be achieved with this haircut and it has great potential for creativity. A woman who chooses to have her hair cut in the short curly style; will find out it only takes a few minutes to manage in the mornings. This style looks beautiful and sexy with little maintenance.

To achieve the short curly hair; there are a few minor steps to complete. First, you will need to shampoo and condition the hair for a clean scalp. You can let the hair dry on its own or use a blow dryer for a faster approach. Before you begin the cutting process it is best to know the exact shortness that you would like to achieve.

The back and sides of the hair can be cut shorter than the top. This allows the top to be a little bit longer which will allow for longer curls. To begin cutting the hair you can use either a sharp pair of scissors or a sharp hair trimmer. Section off the hair into smaller sections while cutting; this will allow for a more accurate and even cut. Once the sides and back are cut to the desired length; you can begin with top front of the hair. The top can also be cut into smaller sections for a more reliable trim. The length can vary depending on your preference.
For naturally curly hair, this cut will maximize the curls. If your hair is coarse; then you can add gel to the hair to keep the curls in place for a more natural look. For hair that is naturally straight, you can add curl for a fuller style. It would be best to use a smaller curling iron to curl the back and sides of the hair. Using a smaller curling iron will give the short hair a better-looking curl that is tight and realistic. The curls will want to be evenly distributed and go in the same direction. Take the strands of hair and curl inward towards the scalp. The smaller sections of hair that you use; the more layer of small curls you will have.

The longer hair on top can also be curled with a curling iron. Depending on how long you have the top also depends on the size curling iron to use. Divide the hair into sections and begin curling. You have the curls going under for a fascinating look. This type of curl can bring more attention to your face. Once your short curly hairstyle is complete; you can spritz the curls to help them keep their shape.
There are salons that specialize in short haircuts and give you the short curly hairstyle that you would like. This particular short curly hairstyle was a masterpiece created by Lawan Cummings-Neely. The black hairstyles are not only beautiful but can be contoured for any type of special occasions. This new look will have everybody noticing and complimenting your magnificent hair.

Short-n-Spiky Hairstyle with Color from Shana Lucky

August 8, 2016 in Armani's Hair Studio, Black Hairstyles, Clipper Cut Women's Hairstyles Gallery, Highlights Hairstyles, SHANA LUCKY, Shana Lucky, Short HairstylesGallery, Uncategorized

Salon: Armani’s Hair Studio
Stylist: Shana Lucky
Model: Angela
Make Up: Deirdre Clay

Some of the most beautiful black hairstyles are those that are short and tailored. In this image, Shana Lucky shows us just what can be done with her short and spiky creation. In fact, let’s take a moment to discuss how you can recreate this style on your own.

Supplies Needed:
Shampoo
Moose
Rat tail Comb
Styling Strips
Hooded Dryer
Marcel Irons
Claw Comb
Oil Sheen

Step 1: Shampoo
Shampoo your hair. Before styling, you need to make sure your scalp is clean. Not only will it feel fresh, but your hair will also be easier to manipulate.

Step 2: Wrap
Wrap your hair. Squeeze a generous amount of styling moose into your hand and evenly distribute it throughout your entire head. Take your rat tail comb and wrap the longest sections of your hair around the circumference of your head and comb the short sections straight down. (i.e. the sections at the base of your neck, the sides of your head and your side burns.)

Note: The goal is to add enough moose so that it molds the hair to your head, but not so much so that it drips while you’re drying. Use the towel to remove excess moisture.

Step 3: Add Styling Strips
Apply the styling strips. Press the styling strips against the short parts of your hair. Use the back of your rat tail comb to ensure that the application is smooth. This is to ensure that the shortest parts of your hair will remain smooth during the drying process.

Step 4: Dry
Sit underneath a hooded dryer. Depending on the length of your hair, this should take no more than one to one and a half hours. Refrain from touching your hair as this could leave imprints or cause your hair to crinkle.

Step 4: Comb Out
Once your hair has dried completely, then comb it out. Remove the styling strips and then comb your hair downwards, toward the front of your head. At this point, your hair should be bone straight and your comb should be able to pass through easily.

Step 5: Curl
You will need to different sized marcel irons. The sizes will depend on the length of your hair. Start by curling the sides and back of your head; take the smaller marcel irons and create curls that curve downwards. Next, take your larger marcel irons and curl the top of your head; curls that curve towards the back of your head.

Note: The tighter your curls are at the top, the less spikey they will be. So try to keep the curl relatively loose. The goal is to create more of a loose bump than an actual well-formed curl.

Step 6: Style
Use your claw comb to style the back and the top of your head. Experiment with the design. You can make it as edgy or toned down as you’d like.

Step 7: Sheen
Spray a little oil sheen as a finishing touch. If you add too much it could possibly weigh the hair down and your style may not last as long or could loose some of it’s body. So try to keep it light.

As you can see, this style is not very difficult to duplicate. If you are interested in more short hairstyles for black women, then get in touch with Shana Lucky from Armani’s Hair Studio–one of the best Hartsville SC hair salons. You can reach her at (843) 332-1080.

Twisted Links with Inverted Braids Hairstyle from Pam Webster

March 30, 2016 in Black Hairstyles, Braids Hairstyles Gallery, GREG'S PROFESSIONAL BARBER & BEAUTY SALON, PAMELA WEBSTER, Twist Hairstyles Gallery, Updo's Hairstyle Gallery

Salon: Greg’s Professional Barber & Beauty Salon
Stylist: Pamela Webster
Model: Ayana
Make Up: Deirdre Clay

Black hairstyles show us just how versatile black hair is. This is especially the case when it comes to braids. In this image, Pam Webster from Greg’s Professional Barber & Beauty Salon in Mobile, AL gives us new ideas with her flawless twisted links and inverted braids style.

What You Need:
Shampoo
Rat-tail comb
Setting lotion
Hooded Dryer
Butterfly clips
Bobby Pins

Step 1: Shampoo 
Shampoo your hair and take time to comb through and detangle it. There’s a lot of manipulation involved and this style depends on your hair being as straight as possible.

Step 2: Add Setting Lotion
Add a quarter size amount of setting lotion to the palm of your hand and work it evenly into your hair. Too much will result in longer drying times so lightly dab the excess away with a dry towel.

Step 3: Section Off Hair
Use your comb to divide the hair into sections. Create parts around the entire head that each extend towards the center. The number of sections you create will largely depend on how far apart you want your links to be. Just make sure that as you create sections, you secure each end with a butterfly clip.

Step 4: Create Twisted Links 
Remove the butterfly clip from one section and divide it into three smaller sections. Flat braid the section furthest to the left and use a bobby pin to secure it the center of your head. Use the other two sections as your links and flat twist them until they intersect with your next section. Continue this pattern until you have gone around the entire circumference of the whole head.

Step 5: Create the Top Braid 
Use the loose hair at the top of your hair to create three large braids. Secure them to the center of your head with bobby pins. Ideally, the should come together to form one, large loop.

Step 6: Dry
Sit beneath a hooded dryer. This style should take between 1 and a half to two hours to dry, depending on the thickness of the hair.

Greg’s is one of the premier Mobile, AL hair salons. And they’re always excited about working with new clients. If you want to know more, contact Pam at (251) 473-9575.

 

 

“The Titanic” Natural Personality Piece from Terresa Murray

March 25, 2016 in Afro Hairstyles, Black Hairstyles, Curly Hairstyles Gallery, Extensions Gallery, HAIR EXPLOSION, Natural Hairstyles Gallery, TERRESA MURRAY, Twist Hairstyles Gallery, Uncategorized

Salon: Hair Explosion
Stylist: Terresa Murray
Model: Shanell
Make Up: Deirdre Clay

There’s a lot that can be done with natural hair, especially when it’s thick and long. In this image, Terresa Murray Barnes of Hair Explosion in Panama City, FL executes a perfect natural hair twist out. And luckily, this is one of the many black hairstyles you can do on your own.

What’s Needed?

Conditioner Clips

Wide-toothed comb

Rat tail comb

Oil Styling gel

 

Step 1: Shampoo and condition

Clean and conditioned can better absorb products. If your natural hair has too much product build-up, it easily goes limp styles, has slow drying times and a lot of flaking.

Step 2: Moisturize

Add your “go-to” oil to the hair so that it can retain as much moisture as possible. This will make it easier to comb through and also give your hair a more fresh and healthy appearance.

Step 3: Detangle

Use your wide-toothed comb to remove knots and tangles from your hair. This will make it more manageable as you create sections for your twists.

Step 4: Create Sections

Divide your hair into sections. Keep in mind that the bigger your sections, the larger and less defined your coils will be. However, if the sections are too small, you may not have as much volume. As you separate your section, secure each end with a clip.

Step 5: Create Twists

Create two strand twists. Make sure the twists are tight, but not so tight that they’ll be difficult to take down after drying.

Step 7: Take Down Twists

After allowing the hair to air dry completely, unravel the twists. 

Even if you don’t have the length for this style, you can always consider adding hair extensions. If you are on the lookout for great Panama City FL hair salons and want to work with stylists like Terresa, then contact her at Hair Explosions at (850) 763-0883.

“Winter Fresh” Curly, Afro, Quick Weave Hairstyle from Latoya Dyson

Salon: La Cheveux
Stylist: Latoya Dyson
Model: Tonisha
Make Up: Ms. Jackee

If you’re looking for a look that’s fun and flirty, then look no further. Latoya Dyson from La Cheveux Salon in Peoria, AZ turns one of her black hairstyles into something curly, bold and beautiful. With the proper technique and a little knowledge, this style can easily be created in the comfort of your own home.

What You’ll Need:
Shampoo
Rat tail comb
Wrapping foam
Rollers
Hooded Dryer
Oil Sheen (spray or oil)
Styling Gel

Step 1: Shampoo
Shampoo your hair. Begin your style with a clean scalp. Not only will this ensure that the style lasts longer, but starting fresh also ensures that your curls look soft and have a lot of body.

Step 2: Apply wrapping foam
Apply a generous amount of wrapping foam to your entire head. Comb through your hair in order to remove any excess foam. Remember, you need enough so that your hair will be able to stick to the roller, but not so much that it completely weighs the hair down.

Step 3: Roll your hair
Hold rollers at an angle so as to create a ring curl effect. The larger the roller, the less defined your curls will be. So try to choose a size that is big enough to hold the length of your hair, but small enough to encourage as many ringlets as possible.

Step 6: Sheen and smooth
Take a quarter size amount of sheen and work it through your curls. Also, take styling gel and add it to any visible parts of your hair line in order to smooth it over.

Creating curls that last takes attention to detail. If you would like to know more about quick weave hairstyles or curly hairstyles for black women, then get in touch with La Cheveux Salon in Peoria, AZ at (520) 252-9190. They are one of AZ’s premiere black hair salons.

There’s nothing more flattering or feminine that long hairstyles that feature curls. In this image, Jackie Evans from All About You Salon & Boutique in Phoenix shows us just how you can take your everyday, ordinary wrap and turn it into something even more sophisticated. Let’s take a moment to discuss how you can create these soft curls on your own.

What You’ll Need:
Shampoo
Wide Tooth Comb
Setting lotion
Hooded Dryer
Oil
Marcel Irons

Step 1: Wash and detangle
Shampoo and comb through the hair. It’s easy for hair to become knotted and tangled between washes. This is especially true when it comes to longer hair. As you wash, take the time to remove any tangle you come across. After you rinse your hair, comb down it’s length to make sure that it will be easy to style.

Step 2: Apply setting lotion
Set your hair. Take a generous amount of setting lotion and evenly work it through every strand of hair. Comb the hair as you do this to ensure that it remains tangle-free. You should also use a towel to lightly pat away any excess or dripping lotion, as too much can cause a longer drying time and leave a white film behind.

Step 3: Sit beneath dryer
Allow your hair to dry. Sit beneath a hooded dryer. Depending on itslength, you should allow your hair to dry between and hourand a halfto two.

Step 4: Comb out and add oil sheen
Comb through your hair. In order to avoid damage or a frizzy look, it’s essential that you make sure your hair is completely dry before starting the styling process. Lightly apply oil in order to give it luster and sheen.

Step 5: Curl
Curl your hair. Take small sections of the hair and wrap them around your marcel iron. Position the iron as if you are attempting to create a ring curl. The bigger your curling iron, the more dramatic your curl will look.

Step 6: Finger comb
Separate the curls. Avoid using a comb to pick your curls out as this will only make them less defined. Use your fingers to gently pull the curls apart until you have reached the amount of volume you desire.

Maybe you’re still not able to achieve this exact look. In this case, it’s best to leave it up to the professionals. All About You Salon & Boutique is one of thePhoenix Arizona hair salons thatspecializes in styling long black hairstyles. Simply call(623) 334-8855 to learn more.

The fact is that short hairstyles for black women are back.

The style in the photograph was created by Steven Michael from Designs by Liz Hair Salon in North Charleston, SC. This style is frequently requested in North Charleston hair salons.

Getting Started
First, it is important to gather together the tools required to create one of the most fun and flirtatious black hairstyles around. You will need a 3/4 to 1 inch barrel curling iron, styling combs, brush, clips, hair holding spray, moisturizing lotion or cream. This is one of those bob hairstyles that need tender loving care along with a precision cut before starting. Start with chemically relaxed hair that is in good condition or hair that is freshly shampooed, conditioned, and straightened with a flat iron or curling iron. Add moisturizing sheen with Shea Butter to nourish and protect hair before continuing.

Step One – Take a comb and separate the hair into easy to work with sections. Separate the crown area on the head. Take a large clip and gather the hair together on the crown and clip it. Proceed to separate the hair on the left side of the head and clip down, separate right side and clip down. Take the entire back section of the hair, comb together and clip down.

Step Two – Remove the clip on the back section of hair. Heat up the curling iron. Divide the hair into two sections. Take the curling iron and curl the sections, one at a time. Remove curls and spray with hair, holding spray. Repeat the same process on the sides and the crown section.

Step Three – Let the fresh curls cool and get ready to style your hair like the flirty style in the picture. Part the hair at an angle on the left or right side. Use your fingers or a styling comb to loosen the curls. Run hands through the curls and let them flow freely.

Step Four – Take your styling comb and start combing and arranging the hair in the sleek style shown in the picture. Remember to take the crown section and flip to the side. You might want to give the bang section an extra curl with the curling iron. Arrange appropriately and spritz with oil based hair holding spray.

Black hairstyles come and go. However, short hairstyles for black women are very trendy and classic at the same time. Bob hairstyles that are cut at an angle and frame the face are truly elegant.

Natural Mohawk Hairstyle from Ursula Kershaw

Salon: The Studio
Stylist: Ursula Kershaw

Natural hairstyles are gaining popularity and the natural Mohawk hairstyle is attracting its own share of popularity. It is not only outstanding but also adventurous. It is fun and ready to go with little care required. Charleston SC hair salons are looking to provide the best black hairstyles to suit you. This natural Mohawk hairstyle is ideal for medium hair.

Step-by-Step Guide
Preparation

Shampoo your hair thoroughly and rinse leaving no soap residue
Straighten your hair just a little bit to detangle it

Creating the Natural Mohawk hairstyle

1. Segment your hair into 3 horizontal parts.
These three parts originate from the top of your heal all the way to the neck line. They should leave the mid-section from the crown of your head as the center.

2. Hold up the mid-section
The mid-section is to remain untouched and to avoid mixing the segmentations; it is best that you hold it up and tie it in position.

3. Plait some lines directed towards the hair that is held up from the side sections
With the side segments, plait some lines. These lines originate from the end as they approach the center. Do this on both sides. However, once the line reaches the margin where the tied hair starts, do not complete it. This helps it to blend in with the rest of the hair.

4. Apply some gel over the mid-section
Untie the mid-section hair and apply some hair gel. This will help to bring the hair together thus creating a fuller illusion as well as leaves some fancy curls to your natural hair.

5. Style as desired
Because the mid-section is not plaited, you can direct it in either direction of your choice.

Rather than experiment on your own and turn out with a less attractive outcome. This hairstyle is a creation of Ursula Kershaw from the Studio in North Charleston, SC. You can reach her to book an appointment on (843) 364-4049.

Shampoo your hair thoroughly
Straighten your hair to dry and entangle it
Purchase two pieces of the long romance curls weave

Step-by-step Guide

Make a front side cut on the left side of your hair

The cut provides the origin of the hairstyle. Do not make it too deep into your head’s crown. The amount of hair you leave out should be enough to cover the weave so it blends in creating the illusion that the hair is complete. Hold this section up so it does not mix with the rest.

Plait some line with the rest of your hair such that they meet at a given point

With the rest of the remaining hair, plait some lines ensuring that they meet at the same point. These serve the purpose of attaching the weave pieces.

Attach the hair extensions

Attach the weave on the lines ensuring that they are evenly spread out until your head is covered and there are no visible spaces.

Comb it down together

Once you complete attaching the weave pieces, you can comb it down together with the rest of the hair that you had held to complete the hairstyle.

Oil your hair and style as desired

Oil your hair to give it a shine and style as you desire.

To provide the desired results, it is recommended that you work with a professional from North Charleston SC hair salons. This black hairstyle is a creation of Ursula Kershaw from The Studio in North Charleston, SC. to book an appointment, contact her on her phone number (843) 364-4049.

Black hairstyles range from short and natural to long hairstyles with bouncy curls. A lot of women wonder about those gorgeous long locks seen on runway models or famous celebrities. Are they natural? Well, the fact is that they are hair extensions. That’s right. Those loose curls cascading down that model or famous celebrities back are fabulous fakes that look so real that only their stylist knows for certain that they are extensions. Check out this look. It is cute and sexy. The look wascreated by Ursula Kershaw from The Studio in North Charleston, SC. Phone number (843) 364-4049.

Step 1
Gather together the hair-styling tools for this hair-style. They include shampoo, conditioner, styling comb, hair dryer, flat iron, curling iron, clip in long human hair extensions, hair moisturizing spray, and hair holding spray. Make sure that the hair is freshly shampooed and conditioned before going further. Use your favorite products or those that are suitable for your hair type. For example, hair products suitable for dry hair or suitable for oily hair.

Step 2
Spray a hair conditioning moisturizer on the hair and blow dry. Straighten the hair with the blow dryer or a flat iron. Those with chemically straightened hair might like to avoid the flat iron. Treat hair gently at this step. Take your time and do not rush through the process.

Step 3
The fact is that a lot of long black hairstyles incorporate hair extensions to create those oh so sexy loose curls. The long hair look with plenty of loose, bouncy curls is a very hot trend that is not about to slow down. The look is gorgeous on a teen to a more mature, foxy lady.

Step 4
Divide the hair into sections. For example, make a part on the right side or the left side of the head and the back of the crown. Add clip on extensions to the head in the same pattern as the model’s hair design. Comb your own hair over the extension connection point to create a more natural look.

Step 5
Take a 1 inch curling iron and curl the hair extension completely in spiral shaped curls. Use a flat iron to smooth the edges of your own hair and blend into the sides. Take a styling comb and arrange the loose curls around the head naturally, like the model in the picture. Spray with a holding hair spray to complete the sexy look.

This is one of those cute and fabulous black hairstyles that really gets noticed. However, long hairstyles take more maintenance and require a professional touch. Get expert results with the creator of this style Ursula Kershaw from The Studio in North Charleston, SC. Phone number (843) 364-4049.

Natural Hairstyles
Certainly, wearing the hair in its natural state is one of those trendy black hairstyles sweeping across the country. First, it is important to make sure that your hair is in reasonably good condition before coloring. Don’t go too drastic. This might result in breakage or other damage to the natural hair. Instead, stay within your color range to avoid damage. Often, some women go too drastic and are very upset at the hair color change. Here is an idea. Use a temporary hair color spray that is available at a local hair and beauty supply shop or ask your hairdresser to apply a temporary color. Remember, to take the time to trim the hair or to get a professional haircut.

Step 1
Gather together the items that are required for the natural hairstyles and hair color creation. Tools required include your normal shampoo, condition, natural hair comb, dryer, hair moisturizer, spray color, towels. Keep all tools close, during the process.

Step 2
Wash and condition the natural hair. Apply a bit of hair moisturizer, if desired. For example, Shea Butter or a spray hair moisturizer. Work the hair moisturizer through the hair. Take a natural comb or brush to apply, if necessary. Style the hair with a natural pick, until satisfied with the look.

Step 3
Achieve this jazzy look with a temporary hair color spray. Follow the directions that are included on the temporary hair color product and apply to the natural hair in the pattern or design on the model in the picture. Use a mirror to spray on the color or ask a friend for assistance in the process.

Of course, coloring natural hair is a choice. However, natural hairstyles require tender loving care and gentle treatment. Visit a hair salon that specializes in black hairstyles for expert care and hair color application. Like this look?

When it comes to looking good, your hair must stand out. This is no different for young girls and kids. Savannah hair salons have made it their business to ensure that your young girl’s hair is looking beautiful and outstanding. While many think that there is little one can do with a kids hair, there are several kid’s hairstyles one can explore. One of the most popular black hairstyles for kids is the natural goddess kiddie braids hairstyle. Though it is simple, which makes it comfortable for kids, it is classy, unique, and beautiful. Whether it is an event you will be attending with her or she is simply looking forward for playtime, this hairstyle should be a consideration.

Step-by-Step Guide
The following step-by-step guide will guide you through creating this hairstyle in the right manner in an effort to bring out the best results. It is ideal for medium as well as long hair. Before getting started, it is important to note that you must purchase one pack of braids to help you achieve the desired look.

Preparation

Thoroughly and gently, wash her hair with a mild shampoo that is gentle for a kid’s skin.
Using warm water, rinse off the shampoo until none is left
Blow-dry her hair to entangle it thus leaving it straight
Segment the braids into a few separate pieces

Creating the natural goddess kiddie braids hairstyle

Divide the hair into two, from top to bottom

Originating from the side, create a cut down to the bottom. However, rather than make a straight cut, make it a zigzag design.

Gather it towards the edges

With the hair divided into two, you are required to comb the two portions on their opposite ends. Ensure that the division remains distinct.

Using the braids, start plaiting a line

Gather one of the braids and ensure that they are even in size. The size should not be small or too big in an effort to ensure that it remains proportional to that of her head. Start the line from the right end where you started making the cut from. Using the braids, plait a line that will start from the right front and go round the edge, plaiting the loose end hair you combed. Ensure that you capture every piece of hair to avoid loose lines. Do the same with the left side of the hair.

Fasten the ends of the lines

Once the lines are complete, it is time to fasten them by neatly stitching them at the back. Ideally, you can use a hair ribbon or bow to hold them together.

It is recommended that you work with a professional stylist when looking to obtain the best results while at the same time ensuring that she is not strained.

Long Romance Curls Hairstyle from Jillian Jenay Mays

Is there anything more appealing than a romantic hairstyle? A head full of long, flowing curls is definitely the way to go when creating a romantic look and in this image Jillian Jenay Mays from J Jenay Hairstyling and Barber Studio in Summerville, SC shows us exactly how its done. The good news, you can easily create this look yourself.

What You Will Need:
Shampoo
Rat Tail Comb
Leave-In Conditioner
Wrapping Lotion
Hooded Dryer
Curling Iron
Sheen
Styling Gel

Step 1: Shampoo and Condition
Start by washing your hair. This is a good time to detangle your hair and make sure that it is bone straight before moving on to styling. Rinse your hair and apply a quality leave in conditioner.

Step 2: Apply Wrapping Lotion
Apply a liberal amount of wrapping lotion to your hair, making sure to not apply so much that the ends drips. Then comb your hair straight back. Make sure that the hair remains as close to the scalp as possible.

Step 3: Dry
Allow your hair to dry. Sit beneath a hooded dryer for one and a half to two hours. How long you remain under the dryer will depend on the length and thickness of your hair. Just make sure you don’t touch or try to style your hair while it is damp.

Step 4: Part and Curl
Before curling, comb through your hair to ensure that there are no tangles and then part your hair just above the peak of either eyebrow. While holding your curling iron in a vertical position, with the handle pointing towards the floor, loosely wrap your hair around the curling iron until it is secure.

Be mindful that the higher you start the curl, the less carefree and romantic your look. Try to start the curl at the base of your neck. It’s also important that you remember that the larger your curling iron, the more loose your curl will be. So if you only have smaller irons, try not curl your hair so tightly.

Step 5: Pick Your Curls Out
Pick your curls apart so as to create more volume. Keep in mind that the more you pick, the curlier your style will look. So be very careful and deliberate about how much you seperate. The goal is to give a smooth and effortless appearance.

Step 6: Smooth Edges and Sheen
Put a quarter size amount of oil sheen in your palm and smooth it over your hair in order to give it a more polished look. You should also use pro styling gel to smooth and style your edges. Make sure to add gel to your part so that it stays in place.

The key to wearing great black hairstyles is knowing what look flatters you most.
