African American hair can be turned into anything you dream of that’s if you know what exactly you’re looking for, and another issue is to be more creative.

Among colors that shine on every African American woman's skin complexion and face shape as highlights are; if you add bold black color and blonde highlights, black with maroon highlights, Black with gray, or black and white blonde highlights with no doubt you look war.

Whichever way you can decide to trim your natural hair super short on the right-hand side halfway from the front going inward then from this point up to the back of the neck you cut hair on ear length medium short.

Then the hair on the left-hand side and at the crown is cut long up to the ears and applied with red dye. Some hairs at the bottom from the right coming towards the back are cut on the same length as the beginning of the right-hand side.

Only the mid crown coming forward and all the way through mid left hair is applied on red dye to make your hair look stunning. Your natural hair has to be relaxed, that’s if you’re to apply color on your hair to avoid washing away dye if you do verse versa.
