There are so many options for black hair these days. You can go totally natural at any length, then there are the straightening options and the wigs, weaves and extensions.
In this gallery, I feature some of the best black hairstyles right now and include links to galleries featuring other hairstyles like them. No matter your taste or preference for your own look, you're sure to find some styles you like here.
Here we feature 3 short hairstyles on singer Rihanna. Rihanna changes her hair more than any other black celebrity, in my opinion and has worn her hair short on several occasions. These styles are from 2007, 2008 and 2012 and all are simply gorgeous and flattering to her face and body shape.

Perhaps the biggest hairstyle trend of the moment in the black hair community is natural hair. Some women take a break from costly weaves and salon treatments and let their hair go, while others firmly embrace their natural hair and make a permanent choice to let it grow out.

Hair that falls to the shoulders is the hottest hairstyle length at the moment. And, as you'll see from this gallery, the trend works just as well for black women as it does Caucasian women. Top Shoulder-Length Black Hairstyles05 of 28

Updos are great options for formal occasions (or even every day ones) and this braided updo on Gabrielle Union is definitely one to mimick.

I love short, edgy haircuts and braids like these on Yaya DaCosta. An edgy haircut can be hard to pull off, however, you've got to dress to compliment it and you have to have the confidence to bring such attention to yourself.
