Black hairstyles are greatly versatile
Regardless of your preferred black hair style, there are a number of things you should decide on before heading to the stylist. There are many hair styles to choose from such as braided, curly, short and edgy or long and straight. Try to decide on a basic style before deciding on the details.
Black hair is greatly versatile, some of the most intricate and beautiful hair designs can only be done with black hair. It’s important not to get caught up in the competition of making your hair more elaborate. Don’t lose sight of the basic principles that make black hair styles so beautiful. The black hair style must compliment the wearer, allowing the wearer’s natural beauty to shine. Don’t overdo it, the goal of any hair style is to get the person noticed, not the hairstyle itself.
Here are a few basic rules to follow when styling black hair
So, it’s time to decide on a new black hair style. It’s important that your new hair style conform to the natural contours of your face, so you’ll need to pay close attention to your bone structure and facial features. You want your style to highlight your best features while hopefully concealing features you consider to be less than flattering. Make sure not to hide your good features. Your good features can become even better with the right black hair style.
Before you choose which black hair style is best for you, most stylists recommend that you take your build into account. If you are of a larger build, a short style may not be best suited to you. Conversely, if you are of a small build, a large, full bodied look might overwhelm your natural physical form. Simply put, make sure that your hair isn’t too big for you and you’re not too big for your hair.
Stylists also recommend that when choosing a black hair style you take into account the shape and symmetry of your face. Whether your face is oval shaped, heart shaped, round, square or triangular, there’s a good black hair style for you. While all the different faces are beautiful, the most desirable in fashion today is oval shaped. If you have an oval shaped face, you should have a fairly easy time with your black hair style. If you don’t have an oval shaped face and like the look, you can style your hair in a way that makes your face appear to be oval.
Oval shaped faces posses perfect symmetry, with the eyes directly in line and even distances to the hairline. It’s very easy to find a suitable black hair style for an oval shaped face, as people with oval shaped faces can wear almost any hair style. The best way to decide is by trying a couple, taking some pictures and selecting the one you find most flattering.
Heart shaped faces are characterised by a wider forehead that declines to a smaller jaw and chin. The goal for heart shaped faces is usually to take the focus off the forehead while enhancing the appearance of the jaw. This can be achieved by cutting the weight of the hair to around chin length. You may also choose to wear bangs, obscuring part of the forehead.
Round faces are characterised by having smaller foreheads and chins while having wide cheekbones. We’re trying to take focus off the cheekbones. Hair styles cut pointing inward toward the face work best. You want a lot of volume in the bang area to make your head appear a little more angular.
Square faces often have a large forehead and prominent jaw line. With this type of face, it’s all about soft edges. Square faces often require quite a bit of texture. Hair should be long and layered, drawing attention from the jaw.
Triangular shaped faces have defined, angular jaw lines with smaller foreheads. You can use the same style you’d use for square faces, except with a little more volume up top in the crown area. You want to make the forehead appear larger.
Well, that’s it! I hope this helps you find a good fit. Remember, be creative! The only limit is your imagination.
