When it comes to rocking the short hairstyles for African American women. We know it can get hot in many areas of the world and nothing is more elegant and functional than a short cut. The only problem is choosing one when there are so many great looking styles. Usually women tend to go with whats trending. Sure that’s great but then you run into thousands of other women rocking the same cut and style as you. Many black women love the new fashion trends and styles whether it be clothes, shoes and yes hair.
One method I found to work better it looking at some of the past trends and giving them my on spin and owning the style. If you don’t want to do that you can always try a short haircut and make sure you just wear the hairdo better than the next. You want to be stylish and for black women the shorter cut whether its a bob or pixie can really set off your looks. If you are more daring or want to go natural some women prefer just going with a very low fade cut and getting it shaped up for style. Are you willing to wear a really low cut or do you just want something that is shorter than your normal hair? If you have the confidence to get that hair chopped here are some buzz, cropped, chopped and layered cuts you should love.
Remember when it comes to rocking a shorter do no matter how short it is you have to make sure you keep the look looking fresh and clean. Take care of your hair and don’t be afraid of cutting off a lot of your locks. The last thing you want to do is be afraid and choose a length that is not the length you truly wanted to try. If you are unsure try getting a head piece to wear to see how you would look with your hair at that length. The same goes if you get your hair cut super low and don’t like it. There are wigs that you can wear until your hair grows back out and you can even get box braids depending on the length of your hair.

The asymmetric short bob haircut not only looks good on her but we think a lot of black women would look stunning with this do. This bob has long layers on the front and as you move to the sides it gets shorter. The color of the hair is simply amazing and we just love the fringe that is waved and angled to the side to give her face more angles.
