If you prefer a haircut to styling your hair, there’s more than one way to do that. Here have sixteen ideas, and that’s for tapered haircuts for natural hair alone.

While females used to avoid getting haircuts, recent years have seen a huge increase in the number of people willing to let go of some of their hair to look better. The dislike against cutting hair is slowly dissolving and metamorphosing into acceptance, and I daresay preference.

If you’re one of the females that have come to prefer haircuts to get a full hairstyle, there’s a question that you’ll likely always be asking yourself is this: what haircut should I get exactly? However, maybe you’re asking the wrong person that question, as you have no answers anyway.

Instead of asking yourself, why not get ideas from ladies that have haircuts that look excellent already? In this compilation, I’ll walk you through 16 tapered haircuts for natural hair you should consider trying if you intend to pick up the scissors. Without further ado, let’s jump in.

One of the boldest ways to make a statement with your hair is coloring it unusually, as this idea depicts.

If your beautification strategy revolves around getting a haircut, it would be completely disrespectful not to consider a Mohawk, given how popular and adorable it looks.

3. Tapered Twist Out

Looking closely at the preceding hairstyle idea, you’ll notice that the style at play is a twist-out. While that works excellently to give you a natural Mohawk, a Mohawk isn’t the only hairstyle you can get with a twist-out and a slight cut. If you’re using pretty capable hairstylists, you should be able to do almost anything, just like the model right above.

While the two last hairstyles have more twist-outs than real haircuts, here’s a haircut that looks great, while requiring you actually to use a pair of scissors. The curved sides are excellent additions to the style, but you can also get a bit creative with it. Instead of her exact pattern, you can get something a bit simpler, or more complex.

A cut like the one from the preceding suggestion may be adorable, but it’s a bit too bold and daring for some.

If that sounds like something you’d do, you should definitely try to replicate the hairstyle above.

The colored tips are other additions you should consider if you’re into that.

Red isn’t for everyone; so, it just mightn’t be for you. However, there are many similar colors that will look just as good on a tapered haircut, if not better. While this orange color isn’t my favorite from this compilation, it’s clearly as good as most of the other colored hairstyles in this compilation. Her big smile only makes everything look better.

Sometimes, keeping your hair in its natural color is the correct thing to do, and one of those times is in this case. I can imagine how red or blue hair will look on her, and frankly, I don’t think I’ll like it as well as this. Nailing this cut specifically will likely take some time and effort, but if you have all those resources at your disposal, you should consider replicating it.

12. Short Tapered Haircut with Faded Sides

A tapered haircut with faded sides is one of the most popular variants of the style, as it involves combining two individually adorable styles into one. This style only works if you can live with short hair beside your head, which is about the entire faded sides for a tapered haircut. I’m also a fan of the side parting, which adds some extra beauty to the style.

13. Double Coloured Tapered Haircut with Faded Sides

At first glance, you might have guessed that this style is challenging to make, and you’d be right. Combining a haircut with a full-on style like the model did here is no joke, and making it look as good as it does here is even more challenging than the combination itself. The multicolor look is another plus for me, as there’s a section of the hair that matches her lipstick. It might be a tiny detail, but it makes her even more adorable.

14. Full Curls Tapered Haircut

You can make the ends of your hair into curls to make it look better, but what if there’s a better way to do it?
