Get a great summer look for your hair with these ideas.
We're back with the latest dose of hot summer hairstyles for black women, as modelled by the crème de la crème of Hollywood. Last month, there was a wide variety of styles that were hot, from Nicki Minaj's long locks to Kelly Rowland's short and sassy new 'do. This month there are even more gorgeous hairstyles for you to rock on those hot summer days and nights—keep reading to find out which one is perfect for you!
Starting off this month's list of hot hairstyles for black women is Angell Conwell's bouncy medium 'do. Angell looks stunning in this sexy curled hairstyle with a peek-a-boo fringe that would suit both casual and formal occasions. To get this glamorous hairstyle, simply section off the hair and use a curling iron on each section, wrapping the hair away from the face. This technique gives that cool Seventies look where the hair is curled off the face. Once your curls have been set, spray them into place as is and don't be tempted to use any backcombing or brushing—this hairstyle is all about crisp curls! This hairstyle will suit oval, oblong, square, and diamond shaped faces the best.
Laverne Cox is flaunting a super sexy summertime hairstyle here that many women out there will want to copy. Her highlighted mane looks great with her skin tone and really lightens up her look for summer. Laverne's base is a dark beige blonde complimented with light blonde highlights. The hairstyle itself is quite simple—long layers and a center part are the only things needed here for an exquisite look. Another thing this hairstyle has is versatility. While it looks stunning left down with some loose waves added in, Laverne has the option of wearing buns, chignons, ponytails, braids and whatever else she fancies too! This hairstyle will suit women with round, oval, heart, and triangular shaped faces nicely.
Finally, Meagan Good shows us a short and curly option that is fabulous for the summer. This chin-length bob looks fantastic with simple waves added in for extra bounce, and her warm blonde hair with obvious roots looks seriously cool! This is a trendy 'do that can easily be achieved by using a curling wand to add loose waves all over. This hairstyle would look fabulous on monotone shades of hair, but we love the daring roots that add that extra bit of edginess. This hairstyle will work best for women with oval, oblong, square, and diamond shaped faces.
And finally, for all the ladies who love short hair, check out Roshumba Williams' sassy pixie cut. This short ‘do has jagged layers cut in throughout for maximum styling power and volume. Roshumba's hair has ample volume in the crown that adds height to her face while the layers in the front create a nice frame around her eyes and cheekbones. In addition to looking fabulous, this haircut only takes minutes to style as well! Ladies with oval, oblong, square, and diamond shaped faces will flaunt this hairstyle the best.
