Finding styles for black hairstyles can be a fun adventure, because there are so many creative hair looks from which to choose. If you are lucky enough to be born with black hair you should embrace what you have.  After all, you have been gifted the most versatile hair on the planet.  No other ethnic group is able to do with their hair what you can do with yours.  This is because in each strand of black hair there is texture.  This is a thickness and an imperceptible bend to the hair shaft.  Depending on the degree of texture you might have kinky, curly, or wavy hair.  Regardless, your hair is able to hold style better and for a longer period of time.  This is why there are so many different black hairstyles out there today.  Why not try a few yourself?

One of the most popular hairstyles for blacks these days are variations of the braid.  This can take place in the form of cornrows, in which small strips of hair are essentially French braided next to the scalp or micro braids, in which the entire head is done over in braids that are usually no more than a few millimeters thick.  Both of these styles keep your hair from going astray.  They also mean that you don’t have to wash your hair as often as you would if you wore it down.  Cornrows are generally more popular on men and micro braids are found almost exclusively on women.

Dreadlocks are another hairstyle that works for both black men and women.  This hairstyle is achieved by back combing or twisting your hair until the natural texture locks up on itself and you get locks that will maintain their shape and continue to grow for years on end.  Not only can dreadlocks be a very versatile style but they are also incredibly low maintenance.  If you are sporting dreads you should only wash your hair about once a week and there is literally no styling that needs to be done in the interregnum.

There are also many hairstyles for black people that can be achieved on a semi-permanent basis.  This includes styles like bantu knots and straw sets.  It also includes more traditional styles like multiple braids and updos.  There are so many different ways that you can style your black hair.  You are truly luck that there are so many different black hairstyles available to you.  So pick up a fashion magazine and pick out the one that you want to try today.
