15 Low-Maintenance Short Natural Haircuts for Black Females

A haircut is a creative way to style your hair as a black lady. This episode compiles the best short natural haircuts for black females like you without frustrating maintenance routines.

Maintenance is necessary to keep your hair looking all new and shiny, but having to hit the hairstylist five times a week doesn’t sound all that interesting. With that in mind, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that most ladies would rather go for low-maintenance haircuts than elegant styles that will keep them returning to their stylist.

If you’ve decided to settle for a low-maintenance short natural haircut, it doesn’t have to be boring. There are several haircuts that work excellently on black females and won’t require too much maintenance. If you’re getting a haircut to avoid the insane maintenance routines required to keep the awesome look of most hairstyles, I’m here to help.

Here, I’ll compile 15 of my favorite low-maintenance short natural haircuts for black females. You can get most of these haircuts and forget about them without worrying about any deterioration in looks over time. Without further ado, let’s jump in.

1. Brightly-Colored Haircut with Short Coils

Brightly-Colored Haircut with Short Coils

One smart way to get a beautiful look as a black lady with a haircut is by coloring your hair. Colors tend to work pretty well on blacks, as the image above demonstrates pretty accurately, but you don’t have to go with the brown color specifically. If you need more ideas, I’m just getting started.

2. Neatly Carved Short Natural Haircut

Apart from attracting stares, another thing short hair can do for you is to give you a lot of time before you’ll have to go to a salon again. If you’re not a fan of the brown hair from the previous idea, you can retain the natural black color, which looks equally as adorable.

3. Fresh Cut and Coils

Unlike the two we saw earlier, getting this style right can be pretty time-consuming, but that’s not even a negative since all that time is worth it. The two-toned look is all I want in a haircut right now, and the coils don’t look bad either. Since you can just install it and forget about it, it’s as low-maintenance as it gets.

4. Mohawk Haircut

I’m a fan of mohawks, and I have a full compilation of the best protective mohawk styles for ladies. With that background info, it’s not really surprising that this hairstyle made it into my compilation, given that it’s both adorable and long lasting.

5. Smooth Haircut with Colour Highlights

If you can find a way to blend two agreeable colors together, you should have a pretty decent haircut, at least if you’re black. We’ve seen examples of that earlier, but here’s another adorable illustration to further drive home the point. Her cut smile is also a big part of the reasons why she made it here.

6. Super Blonde Haircut

Super Blonde Haircut

Combining two colors might be good for your haircut, but you clearly don’t have to, especially if you have a preference. While I don’t think I’ll wear a super-blonde hair color on my black self, I don’t think it’s out of the question for everyone else. If it can look this good on this model, why not on you?

7. Smooth Baby Face Haircut

If you’re really serious about near-zero maintenance, you want to make your hair as short as you can possibly bear without losing your appeal. In my opinion, the model above is the most accurate depiction of what I just described, with her smooth and low but beautiful haircut.

8. Haircut with Messy Finger Coils

Haircut with Messy Finger Coils

Tapered haircuts work great for black women, as you can see from one of my earlier compilations. In addition to the tapered cut, this hairstyle adds messy finger coils, a little touch that goes a long way in shaping how the hairstyle looks. No doubt, it’s one of my favorite low-maintenance short natural haircuts for black females.

9. Faded Blonde Haircut with Shaved Sides

Faded Blonde Haircut with Shaved Sides

This haircut works best for ladies aiming for a tough look, and it also manages to be as beautiful as a tough-looking haircut gets. I’m a fan of the multicolor gradient, and it’s very easy to wear makeup that complements this style beautifully, earning it a place in my revered list.

10. Haircut with Messy Natural Coils

Haircut with Messy Natural Coils

We’ve seen more pronounced messy coils on one of the haircuts, but this is another one worth noting. You’ll need a very specific kind of hair to pull off this style, but if you can manage to, it’s probably one of the best looks you can get as a black lady with a haircut.

11. Grey Short Haircut

Grey Short Haircut

At this point, I may be tempted to declare that it’s impossible for a black lady to not look awesome after a haircut. While it doesn’t seem like there’s anything special about her hair, she ends up looking awesome, which is somewhat of a surprise. The short grey hair could be what made her look so great, or it could also be the brilliant smile; nobody will ever know.

12. Pixie Summer Haircut

Pixie Summer Haircut

The pixie cut may not be native to black ladies, but one thing is apparent: it looks pretty great on them. While the image above isn’t a great illustration, there are tons of pixie-sporting black women around social media; all you need is a search. In short, if you live a pixie cut, get it.

13. Frontal Weave Haircut

Frontal Weave Haircut

This may share a similar look to the pixie cut from above, but that’s likely because of their similar colors; it’s a totally different haircut. Like the pixie cut, it’s a bit less boring than a bland short haircut and the faultless combination of blonde and black colors only adds to the style’s appeal.

14. Simple Blonde Haircut

Simple Blonde Haircut

If you don’t mind wearing a two-toned hairstyle, you can get a tapered haircut before dying the top of the style with a blonde color. This style lasts for as long as you can endure without constant trips to a stylist, making it one of the best low-maintenance short natural haircuts for black females.

15. Round Haircut with Orange Highlights

Round Haircut with Orange Highlights

The haircut here is the same concept as the one above, just that it’s a different color at play. I really like the cohesion between the brown and black parts of her hair, and her smile only makes everything look ten times better. No way this one doesn’t make it to the list of the best low-maintenance short natural haircuts for black females, and even males!
