Hello, I'm Allen Edwards and we are at Allen Edwards Hair in Woodland Hills, California. Today we are coming up with how to style black hair and what's a great short style for it. As you see me cutting, what I'm doing is styling her hair dry instead of wetting it because this is her natural curl and if I wet it, it will be completely a curl. So I'm using her hair which I really like on the crown and creating different lengths. So she could have it like, we don't want it into just a complete Afro, where it's just a short ball, we're creating it short in here, short in the back, leaving the top long, leaving different lengths on top so she can hook extensions in it and do all kinds of multiple things with it. This is what's so great about black hair. This is Leah and Leah is a fantastic model and she has beautiful black hair but her hair was like really bushy when she came in and I wanted to design something short for her that works with her. Now Leah is a full figured model and works all the time, is absolutely gorgeous and you can see this is a perfect thing that it works for a round face having short hair and when I started cutting here, I just didn't wet her down and go into it and start chopping it off. I started working from the bottom and what I started seeing creatively, what was happening with the crown of her head and I really liked how it worked on her face. And what it does it gives her the option of having long hair or short hair because she can put all kinds of extensions into this and have long hair over the short hair. So this is my version of short hair for black hair and I think it works beautiful and not to be afraid. And I'm Allen Edwards, thanks a lot and I'll see you next time.
