Black hair has been a popular trend in hair for a while now, we really have the Kardashian clan to thank for the rise in black hair. There’s something that feels so exotic and gorgeous about a woman with black hair. It’s a severe color that requires different makeup than lighter hair. While there are many people with naturally black hair, there are also many that get it colored. We thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the ways to incorporate the black hair craze if you’re considering it.
One of the popular hair shades, again made popular by the Kardashians, is the all black hair look. This is dying the entire head of hair completely black. Katy Perry is another celeb that dons this all-black hair look. While it can be a strong look, it looks best when some shine is added to the hair. If you’re considering going all black, make sure you add a shine serum to your hair to bring out the natural shine and really help your hair pop and look healthy. If you do choose to go with the all black hair look you have so many fun ways to mix up your look with different haircuts and styles. Don’t feel limited just because your hair would be one solid color, mixing up different layers, bangs, parts, etc.
Dark, Dark Brown
Another way to go if you’re not quite wanting the ALL black look is going with a dark, dark brown that almost looks black but isn’t quite black. It’s the natural hair color of many different ethnicities and gorgeous at that. The fun thing about this particular hair color is often there are flecks of brown tones throughout the hair since it isn’t completely black.
If you love the black look but don’t want your entire head of hair completely dark, another way to embrace this hair trend is to add some highlights to your black hair. While most of your hair would be black, adding some strategically placed highlights throughout can be a great way to add dimension and warm up your hair and look. You’ll definitely want to chat with your hair professional on the placement of the highlights, choosing an area that will still give you the dark hair look but just soften it a bit is typically the goal with this particular shade of black hairstyle.
If you’re considering going with a shade of black hairstyle, make sure that you seek a professional who will maintain the health of your hair. Because going with such a dark color takes different steps to achieve the look, you’ll want to make sure you understand what necessary hair treatments and/or care is needed to maintain your hair’s health. Even though if we’re honest, regardless of the hair color you’re going for it’s important that you seek the help of a trained professional so you don’t end up with a look completely different than what you were hoping for.
