6 Benefits of Short Hairstyles for Black Women:

Short hairstyles for Black women are very convenient when you're a woman on the go and don't have tons of time for looooong wash days and such.

When properly maintained, your teeny weeny afro (TWA), designer haircut and pixie cuts can come of as very stylish and chic.

Wavy cuts are common hairstyles for short permed black hair and for the naturals among us short hairstyles for Black women were a staple as we transitioned out of chemically-processing our hair.

  1. Short haircuts can be done at a barber instead of a full salon.
  2. It's easier to maintain a short hairstyle. 
  3. You can use wigs & crochet braids to go long, while long hair won't allow short styles. 
  4. Short hairstyles are often cheaper to upkeep..

And top that all off... For ladies who may have a cute lil chubby face, short haircuts for Black women with round faces are very flattering.

Short Natural Haircuts for Black Females With Round Faces

Alright, listen...

Just because I'm showing some short natural haircuts for Black women with round faces, it doesn't mean that I'm showing you women with round faces.

Not everyone wants to send photos in to be called a "round face", because some could take that as being fat or atleast somewhat overweight.

Still though:

I picked these haircuts and designs as some cute short natural haircuts for Black women with round faces because these are the types of hairdos that seem to compliment fuller faces.

So don't write me trying to cuss me out, lol...
