Cutting it short
Cutting your hair short so that you can try out African American short hairstyles is not that hard as you just need to understand the texture of your hair and work with it instead of working against it in order to achieve optimum results. You should understand that some styles are just not meant for some hair textures. Whether you have coarse hair, fine hair, thick hair or thin hair you can always work with it and use hair products to achieve the desired look if you cut your hair right.
Some of the things that should be taken into consideration would be to cut one’s hair dry instead of doing it when it is wet and cutting the hair at an angle. Hair magazines, guides, salon tutorials and online videos can be a huge helping hand here.
Coloring short hair for additional oomph
Wearing short hair is trendy, funky and cute by itself, but when you team African American short hairstyles with color then you would be kicking it up a notch. Choose from an array of colors like auburn, pale pink, crimson or bright red for extraordinary results. You can also go for highlights if you don’t feel very adventurous. Purple and royal blue highlights look great on dark hair while pink or blue highlights look good on light hair.
Trying on wigs first
There is no point going to the salon and getting your hair cut short resembling one of those African American hairstyles if you are unsure of how your hair would look when it is short. You do not need to take such risks and you can get a short wig which is close to the hairstyle you want and try it on to see how you would look with short tresses.
