Hairstyles Trends

Just like with clothes and dresses, trends in hair styles also change from season to season. We may be in the middle of the year, but it’s never too late to catch up with what’s in and trendy. In terms of black women hair styles, here are the TOP 5 trendy black hair styles this year!

Pixie Cuts are perfect if you have really short hair. This style is one of the hottest black hair styles today. Get the look posed by the classy Audrey Hepburn and be glamorous! But if you do not feel the aura of pixie back in the days, you can get a more updated version of pixie cuts like that of Rihanna. This cut has more geometric shape on and is definitely modern because of the asymmetrical style. Not only it is trendy, the cut also is of low maintenance and hassle-free. Quick touch-ups and styling in minutes is enough to make you ready for the day.

Black bobs are also in this year. Again, Hollywood singer Rihanna is responsible for bringing back this hair style in the cover pages of magazines and TV screens. This hair style can be worn with or without bangs, just make sure that you have it in comfortable length. Otherwise, the full effect of the bob would be wasted.

Ultra sleek and straight hair is an excellent black women hair style. You simple can never go wrong with it, especially if you have black, silky hair. Or, you can use your preferred straightening tool to tame your wavy hair, and pose a different hair style. Just avoid using harsh straightening chemicals for less hair damages.

The classic braided hair style is also hot this year, like it was in the past years. In fact, it is one of the classic black women hair styles. Not only it puts your hair in its natural state, it is also very easy to maintain without the use of many styling products.

For any shape or hair length, there is certainly a suitable cut of bangs. Having sassy bangs can be achieved by chopping off a few hair strands. Also, updating this style is possible even without having a complete haircut.

At the end, I’d like to share a website with more information on topics like black hair styles and black hair care. Visit for more details.


The InStyler

The InStyler

Have you seen the new infomerical that advertises the InStyler Rotating Hot Iron Straightner?  What I saw on T.V. amazed me so I decided to try it for myself to see if I could achieve the results I saw on T.V.

The InStyler is a little expensive.  Their website advertises that you can purchase the InStlyer for $14.99 introductory price for 30 days.  You also Buy One, Get One Free.  Sounds good right?  Make sure you read the fine print.  If you decide to keep both InStylers you do nothing, and your credit card will be charged 3 installments of $39.99.  YIKES!  Add it up and that is close to $120.

InStyler Review:

I was really skeptical of the product.  I have never been impressed with many as seen on T.V items.  I have to say that this product really worked.  I have friends that have the InStyler and they love it as well.

I was very please with the results.  The price, not so much.  I have done a little research and have found that you can buy a brand new InStyler on eBay for about half of the price.  Final Verdict:  The InStyler is Great, but don’t pay full price if you don’t have to.
