Stunning short hair options for black women

Amanda Thompson looks at the variety of styles available to short haired women

Black women face the challenge of looking after their delicate strands every day and probably it’s the main reason many women opt for shorter hairstyles.

However, it doesn’t mean the list of options becomes less: extremely short afro cuts, pixies, buzz cuts, locs, bobs, undercuts, crazy Mohawks, comb-overs… the list goes on and on.

Such short hair options are very easy in maintenance, they look vibrant and authentic, the tips of short hair receive enough nutrition and eventually are healthy.
