Short, straight hair with a touch of shine can be a simple and fun look. This hairstyle is simple and easy to recreate, perfect for casual events, date nights, or a night out at the club. You don't have to be young to look youthful. With this short black hairstyle and bright highlights, this model seems much younger than her age - and much better-looking, in our opinion. This short hairstyle is achieved by styling your hair in a blunt cut that is straight and slightly angled. The use of heat helps give this style a dramatic look while creating a more voluminous appearance in the front, which compliments the height of your face. The back of this short splendid 'do is tapered into the neck, with graduating layers cut up to the crown for height and texture. The sides are cut to be worn over or around the ears to show how versatile short hair can be. A splash of color is used randomly throughout to complete this look magnificently. This hairstyle is ideal for thin to medium hair texture, which can create a neat look at the end for all-day activities. The low part of the hairstyle creates a longer upper face shape, while the long length adds a regal and sophisticated appearance to your look.
If you want to keep your hairstyle in shape, we recommend trimming it every 1 to 2 weeks to maintain your style's fit and healthy look. These straight strands can be styled into twists and braids using hair accessories such as braids, glueless braids, etc. Regular toning treatments are also required if the greyness of your hair is noticeable.
