30 Staggering Short African American Hairstyles

African American hairstyles are a great mix of authentic styling with a funky and trendy touch. African hairstyles are known for distinctive looking curls, dreadlocks and micro braids. When this impact is melded with short hairstyles, there results a striking fashion statement. You can rock in your short hair by putting up some asymmetric layers, pixie and spiky effect to your straightened curls.

Even if you do not want to forgo your heavy curls, just wear some golden or caramel highlights, which look fantastic on black hair. Afro-American hair is naturally thick, so you may give it a unique body getting unusual angles and twists. Do not fear trying new looks to stay in-vogue and rather ahead of the times with a cool short hairstyle.
