This is a 27 Piece weave with one parts of her hair being black and the other being blonde which gives it the "Cruella Deville" look.  The particular type of install itself has become a very popular method of achieving a short look for as little as 20 bucks when styling a look of 27 piece hair styles for black women.

Because this install requires zero of your natural hair being left out, your existing hair can either be all natural, relaxed or even both if your in the process of transitioning.

Layered Ombre

This is one of the very simple hair styles for black women if using your own hair. This can be as simple as the service of a wash, wrap, and style hairstyle from your stylists.

The light brown underneath brings out the layers, and enhances the ombre look, and the flat bangs is a great way to conceal unexplainable acne on the forehead.

Finish with a light sheen spray, and avoid any oil sheen with castor oil on hair styles for black women such as this one.

Bob and Weave

Try an asymmetrical bob with bangs,  is one of the simplest and classic hair styles for black women. The base starts with a natural 1B color of off black and is topped with 3 shades of light blondes with the lightest shades being strands of white blonde.

All of your hair will be molded down and covered so you can use human or synthetic hair.  Honestly, I prefer human hair because its less shiny and doesn't look as wigish.

Razor Cut  w/Three Tone Highlights

If you want to go for an Ultra edgy look, try something like this razor cut, which has lots of body.The colors give a seasonal Fall look but can be worn anytime of the year. Top this look off with a light sheen spray that will not weigh the hair down.

Avoid sheen sprays with Castor oil for this look. This style can be achieved in a variety of ways such as a quick weave, custom wig unit, or the cut and coloring of your own hair.

If you do choose to use your own hair, maintenance should be nothing more than the service of a wash, wrap, and style for your professional hairdresser, and the clipping of your ends.

Layered Ombre

Hair by: On point stylin Dallas, TX

Ombre hair styles for black women has become very popular on women of all ages. After the hair has been layered, use a large barrel curling iron, the size of a 2" and do a half back curl. Start with the right side of the hair curling outwards coordinating the curlers towards the right, and work your way around to the left side, to curl it in an out and coordinate it in an outwards position.

As for the parting your hair, you can wear your part in the middle if you want the focus on your nose, or wear it on the side if you do not not want the focus down the center of your face. Finish with a very light sheen.

Classic Pixie

This pixie involves tapered sides with extra length at the crown tipped with blonde hair to make the styling details more visible. If you have some self styling techniques then I would say that this is one of the hair styles for black women that will be easy to uphold or restyle yourself before your next appointment.

The top can be teased(backcombed) and tightly back curled at the crown. Finish with a good holding spray and light sheen for added luster.

Wash, Wrap and Style

A simple wash wrap and style is all this hair style takes. If your is hot already layered you will have to get it cut in layers and get a rinse to achieve a color such as this. The way the layers are positioned is known as feathering, and the side swept bangs covering one eye sparks attitude and sass.

Custom Wig Unit

Hair by Chrisante Atlanta, GA 

If you like bobs but don't like the idea of not being able to get to your scalp with a quick weave, then creating a custom made wig such as this unit will be your best option as for styling goes.

This style is sometimes referred to as a U-part wig. Its glue-less so it is removable allowing you to oil your scalp or 

scratch it whenever you need to. The unit is created on a mannequin and then applied to your own head. You can sew it down or clip it down with clips that many stylists will sew inside the parameter of the unit for a secure hold. A very thin layer of your own hair is left out, therefore both natural and relaxed beauties can flaunt this look.

Natural hair women can hot comb your edges with the NOW brand grapseed oil. I like this brand because it gives an appearance of being relaxed.
