There’s no need for short black hairstyles to be boring or relegated to casual situations only. Hair color extensions are a great way to add a little oomph to black hairstyles. This particular short hairstyle is great for a formal or informal setting and it is easy to achieve. Once the color for the hair color extensions has been chosen and added, all that is needed is a straight iron and some styling cream or gel. Carefully part the hair on one side, leaving the colored extensions hanging freely on the longer side. Gel or cream down the shorter hair, leaving the longer hair and color pops to swoop gracefully away from the face on the opposite side.
