Whether your hair is curly or relaxed, short or long, there’s no reason why you should only stick to one unflattering hairstyle for the rest of your life. The truth is, there are plenty of options for black hair, whether it’s:

If you need some inspiration on where to get started with that journey to awesome hair, here’s a gallery of some of the best hairstyles for black women that will inspire you!
A sleek, bumped up ponytail with bangs. This works mostly on relaxed hair, and the steps are really easy. Just brush your hair back and tease it at the top with a comb to get that ‘airy’ look. If your hair is to fine to hold up the bump, use a bump-enhancing tool or some extra strong hairspray.
