This short hairstyle best suits a woman who is dainty or quite slim. If a slim woman goes in for a hair style with bangs, it adds beauty to her face and makes her pretty. It also suits women with big eyes. This hair style may bring embarrassment to women with rectangular or oblong shaped face, as it would make their faces look elongated.

African American hairstyle is beautiful when the stylist takes advantage of the texture and works with the hair rather than against it. Whether your black hairstyle is natural or smooth, an experienced stylist will know how to deal with coarseness and frizz by cutting the hair into a shape that makes it manageable and using the right products for hold.
A great short black hairstyle is a modified pixie haircut in which the stylist cuts uneven layers all over the head to add texture. This kind of black hairstyle works well both straight and curly. So black hairstyle is a great look for women who want versatility without high maintenance.

Hairstyles in 2009 reveal an increased flexibility in all hair lengths. The credit goes to the development of new formulas especially for the texture of black hair. The hairstyles on center stage for 2009 feature longer hair worn sleek and smooth or with waves, thanks to numerous celebrities such as Beyoncé.
Black hairstyles in 2009 such as the French roll. In this style, the hair is pulled back to form a cone shape and then secured at the back of the head with hairpins. This is an elegant style that works well for an evening on the town as well as for a business interview. For women who prefer to wear their hair in a natural style or dreadlocks, there are also many styling options. The ponytail remains a classic favorite for a casual look that can work for hair of medium length. Women who wear long dreadlocks can also style their hair in different ways from the French roll to a chignon or back bun.
Cavenia Bryant has been arrested for her involvement in the Oakland beauty shop beating posted on You Tube. “We’re close on bringing them in. We don’t want to scare them by releasing the names publicly,” said Jeff Thomason, Public Information Officer for the Oakland Police Department.
The May 5 assault took place around 5:50 p.m., but the victim, Melissa Seals, didn’t call the Oakland Police Department until around 7 p.m., Thomason reported. Officers responded and took Seals’ statement: six women entered her Oakland hair salon as Seals cut a customer’s hair, they locked the door from the inside, then two of the women proceeded to beat Seals for several minutes. Three other women watched the attack and a fourth videotaped the beating.
After giving her statement to the responding officers Seals declined to press charges or identify any of the women involved in the attack, according to OPD records. Seals’ refused to press charges for the misdemeanor assault; the officers were obligated by department policy to take a report and close the case without further investigation.

GOP activist Rusty DePass is in hot water over comments about First Lady Michelle Obama.
Would you accept the apology from Rusty DePass after he likened First Lady Michelle Obama to an escaped gorilla?
Yes. He seemed sincere and contrite.
No. His comments were racist and unforgivable, and his explanation didn't make any sense.
A prominent South Carolina Republican killed his Facebook page Sunday after being caught likening the First Lady to an escaped gorilla.
Commenting on a report posted to Facebook about a gorilla escape at a zoo in Columbia, S.C., Friday, longtime GOP activist Rusty DePass wrote, "I'm sure it's just one of Michelle's ancestors - probably harmless."
Busted by South Carolina political blogger Will Folks on his FITNEWS blog, DePass told WIS-TV in Columbia, "I am as sorry as I can be if I offended anyone. The comment was clearly in jest."
Then he added, "The comment was hers, not mine," claiming Michelle Obama made a recent remark about humans descending from apes. The Daily News could find no such comment.
"'Humor' like this is nothing new for South Carolina Republicans - even as the party claims to be focusing on 'outreach' efforts to minorities," said Folks, a former gubernatorial spokesman and widely read blogger. "The fact that Palmetto [State] Republicans don't get that this is a serious problem for them baffles us."

Kentucky State University is an HBCU which lies next to my heart. My sister, who just finished medical school, spent her undergraduate career there, so I was kept in the loop when the world seemed to flip on its head regarding who the students chose to hold the title of Miss Kentucky State University. As you can see, she's not exactly what one would expect an HBCU Homecoming Queen to look like, but Elisabeth Martin's skin color likely reflects one of the many faces that define Historically Black colleges in the new millennium. So, while I was personally dismayed that Kentucky State University (along with many HBCUs around the nation) seems to be forgetting about the importance of having African American faculty, the truth is that we are in an era in which one needs to determine what it means to be an HBCU.
Personally, I love the fact that the students at Kentucky State chose Elisabeth Martin as their homecoming queen. Martin, a 21-year old International Studies major, won the crown by a landslide, dominating the competition. It has been her race, however, that has sent shock waves through the Kentucky State University community. But Martin takes the heat in stride and carries herself with a grace and class that should make the campus proud. The fact that the students love her so much is verified by her love for the campus and commitment to school spirit. She has also handled the national media attention like a true queen should.
AOL Black Voices had the chance to catch up with Elisabeth Martin:

Some stylists use the term natural hair to refer only to Afros, others use the term for any hair style without chemical treatment, including Afros, updos and all types of braids. Women who regularly use a hot comb to relax their hair may suffer progressive, irreversible hair loss, beginning at the crown and spreading across the entire head.
Black Hairstyle Tips:
1. Start by shampooing and conditioning your hair and then saturate it with a high quality hair setting lotion.
2. Part you hair into 1/4 to 1/2 inch sections and place end papers on the ends of your hair.
3. Roll your hair onto each straw and then secure them using hair pins.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 until you have completed your entire head.
5. Dry your hair under a hair dryer.
6. Remove the straws and separate each curl using your fingers.

Halle Berry Hairstyles Different hairstyle from Short To Long Hairstyle Halle Berry’s haircuts have varied from short to mid length to long, but stylist said that she looks best with short hair which reflects her youthful, fun-loving persona. When it comes to short hair cuts, this celebrity has been a great example of the short choppy style, turning heads on the red carpet and in films.
One of the most fabulous looks in Halle Berry haircuts is the extremely short and curled look she sported in 2003 that was both messy and elegant. Starting in the late 1980’s when she first came into the spotlight her style has been seen as a breath of fresh air in Hollywood. Even though she has changed her hairstyles several times to different lengths, she has always worn the style beautifully.
celebrity is one of the few that has consistently revamped her short hairstyles. Recently Halle Berry revitalized her look by cutting her hair to a stylish chin length bob, using toffee blond hair color to give more dimension to her dark brown hair. In this style, her hair is just long enough to tuck behind her ears.
