Amongst the natural African American hairstyles for 2018, the various types of modern ‘fro continue to delight with lots of mini-ringlet twist-outs that can be cleverly cut to flatter any face shape!
So that would be a finished shape that’s wider at eye- and cheekbone level to balance out a thin, long face. Or a teeny weeny ‘fro with extra volume on the top and flat sides to add length to a round face.
What’s new in highlight trends for African American hairstyles for 2018?
The newest innovation in African American hairstyles is the use of fresh, new highlight colours to enhance the fabulous texture of natural curly styles.
For instance, there are some fabulous ash-blonde and ash-brown shades that look wonderful in naturally brown African American hairstyles.
For this year, a mix of two or three highlight shades in amongst a curly ‘do is a great way to add contemporary sophistication.
Sew-in weave African American hairstyles
The best African American hairstyles for 2018 include a whole new range of weaves which are pre-ombréd, or pre-curled in loose waves or lively and big, bouncy curls. It’s worth paying for the best quality sew-ins you can afford because pre-coloured/waved weaves allow you to protect your own hair from bleaching, tinting and heat-styling or straightening.
Best weave style
The biggest overall hair-trend is medium-length cut to just above the shoulders. So try a trendy weave with a centre-parting and no fringe, or with the new straight-across fringe, and fashionable wavy sides and back.
Ombré is still hot and for a totally high fashion look, try a dual ombré with harmonizing or contrasting bands of colour!
Artistic circular and swirly corn-rows will be in the spotlight for 2018 and the movement towards the natural ‘fro is growing every year. So prepare yourself for some glorious, big-hair African American hairstyles for 2018!
Short African American hairstyles
Textured pixie cuts are a dominant look, with the ‘high pixie’, full of natural volume on the top coming in as a popular high-fashion look.
Short bobs will still include the ‘cool’ asymmetrical bob, but there’s a big shift towards the stack-cut back with a softer, curly bob to freshen up our favourite African American hairstyles!
