It used to be customary for black women to try their best to add length to their tresses. From Yaki extensions to Remy hair, buying extra hair to make your mane fuller was second nature to many. These days, short hairstyles for black women are becoming more prevalent than ever. If you are considering one, here are a few points you may want to consider.
Always bear in mind that the word “short” is relative. What you perceive as being really short may seem a bit shaggy to someone else. There is no universal code that dictates the exact length of all short hairstyles for women. The best way to determine which length is best would be to consider the shape of your face and your personal style.
For instance, if you have a very large, round face, a crew cut may not necessarily be the best choice. On the flip side, a short, straight hairstyle will not be a very flattering look in someone with a face that is thin and oval.

I love how the short curls pop and how those short natural hair really suits her so well. This may not be for everyone since not everyone will have the same shape face. If you think this style will suit you, go for it.
When trying to choose a short hairstyle that is right for you, think about any imperfections you want to cover up. This can assist you in determining which style is most flattering. For instance, someone who has a protruding forehead should select an asymmetrical style and/or one that has a bang. This will give your style a little flair while keeping your flaws away from the prying eyes of others.
If you decide to choose a hairstyle that is natural, you should remember that there is a fair amount of maintenance involved with this decision. Some people mistakenly believe that natural hair equates to not caring for your hair and walking around looking unkempt. The opposite is quite true; it takes plenty of work to maintain a natural. In fact, it takes work to maintain any good style whether natural or not.
If you have been thinking about trying a shorter hairstyle, keep all of this in mind as you move forward. This will increase the likelihood you will be satisfied with the style you ultimately select.
