26 Sure-Fire Short Afro Hairstyles: Cool Hair Cuts

Cutting off your damaged hair to grow natural and healthy hair doesn’t have to be traumatic, if you choose one of these totally trendy short Afro hairstyles.

Pixies and bobs with an asymmetric, unconventional or shaggy finish shape often end up making you look younger and tons more stylish!   Remember that short Afro hairstyles put the focus on your eyes, so you can wear brighter eye-makeup without looking overdone!

Shaggy short Afro hairstyles

If your hair is fairly straight or ‘relaxed’, try one of the edgy asymmetric short cuts with a shaggy finish. These cuts work beautifully on coarse, thick hair that’s ‘sliced’ into sharp lines with exaggerated long tips.

Boy-cuts emphasise femininity

The latest short Afro hairstyles are very attractive, so try a short boy-cut bob that will emphasise your femininity. Instead of a buzzed side, try one side flattened to the head in parallel twists and the rest of the hair swept over from a low side-parting.

Without a fringe, this style will add length to a low forehead and with a long side-swept, curly fringe you can ‘shorten’ a long face and show off the natural texture of your hair!

Short Afro hairstyles – the modern ‘fro

This is a new, but retro short Afro hairstyle that was so popular during the ‘70’s that men and women with straight hair were regularly getting an Afro-perm! And with the huge shift towards natural hair, this infinitely variable natural style is set to be with us for the next few years at least.

If your hair is curly, just wind strands around your finger when damp and leave it to dry naturally.Then use an Afro-comb to tousle it a little and you’re done!
