31 BEST SHORT NATURAL HAIRSTYLES FOR BLACK WOMEN

We all know that growing out your own hair is a long and tiresome process, and it's easy to get super excited about it right at the beginning, only to realize it sucks later on when your hair isn't growing as fast as you'd like it to, and your hair won't style quite the way you had intended either. These designs give you the opportunity to be playful and experimental.

1. NATURAL CURLS + CARAMEL HIGHLIGHTS

If you're going through the motions of growing out your natural hair, why not add a vibrant splash of color? These natural curls have been cleverly livened up with some caramel highlights along the top and ends, adding a brand new dimension.

It's punk and pretty all at the same time, and at least you won't need to worry about styling those long braids every day.

2. NATURAL MOHAWK HAIRCUT

If you're going short, why not go brave and super short? This natural mohawk haircut is a brave one, but for no muss and no fuss, you can't really beat it.

The best thing about a look like this is you can literally get up and go - comb the top, make sure you keep your hair well hydrated and moisturized, and you're pretty much good to go.

3. SHORT NATURAL HAIRSTYLE WITH SHAVED SIDES

If you're going back to basics and leaving your natural hair to bounce free for a while, make sure you don't over-wash it. The main point of going au naturel is to do your hair a favor, you're not going to be doing that by washing it every day.
