African American Hairstyles for Curly Hair

Naturally curly hairstyles can range from the longest haircuts to short haircuts, giving you plenty of options to choose from. Whether it is corn-rolls, braided or weaves there is a style that would suit you just right!

Keep it Short

Many career women these days opt for the trendy short hairstyles. These styles apart from offering contemporary chic also look professional at the workplace and are very easy to maintain.

Consider Your Face Shape

Just as in the case with any other types of hairstyles, the shape of your face would dictate your choice of style. The key is to be creative and let your imagination take over. Start with determining which style is good according to your face shape. And then look at latest pictures over the internet or try a virtual styler.

The Afro Style

Perhaps the best known among all African hairstyles is the one and only “Afro” style. It is nothing but allowing your hair naturally to attain any length as possible. This style though easy, requires a bit of maintenance.

The Cropped Cut

Another that has been popular of quite some time now is the cropped cut. It is again very simple with short hair layers all over the head.


  1. You should carefully research the shape of your face and then try out different styles that would accentuate your good features. In most cases one style many not suit and a mixture of more than one hairstyle is likely to suit your face the best.
  2. It is also important that you choose your hair color with care. It should be such that it matches your skin tone just about perfectly.
  3. Have patience while trying out different African American hairstyles. Remember it is not impossible to have the hairstyles of a Halle Berry, Beyonce Knowles or Oprah Winfrey overnight.
