Long Tapered Afro Cuts

This tapered Afro style is unique in that it rocks quite long curls at the top of the head, which taper into very short curls at the bottom. Having longer hair at the top of the head creates both height and width on the head, making for a more powerful, strong look. Women rocking the longer tapered cuts are independent, no-nonsense women who know what they want.

Blonde Tapered Afro

You might already be rocking the short, tapered Afro, but perhaps you are after something with a little more pizzazz? Why not try giving your hair a modern twist by adding some blonde to the mix? In the same way as the cut itself is tapered, this look works best when the blonde color is also tapered. Start with the slightest touch of blonde at the nape of the neck, gradually increasing the color as you move towards the top of the scalp. The curls on the top of the head should be the brightest. This look is perfect for any face shape, and, as with any short tapered cut, is easy to maintain. A look best suited to darker hair, this funky modification on the basic tapered cut will have you turning heads for sure!

Soft Curls on Short Tapered Haircut

Some of us like the tapered look, but prefer a more controlled finish than our natural spiral curls. Consider these soft curls, created with the help of a blow dryer and curling wand. Simply blow dry your damp curls, then use a curling wand to create loose curls. Use your favorite product and gently run your fingers through your hair. Done. This style works for all face types, adding to the softness of a rounder face, whilst softening the harsh lines of a more angular face shape. The tapering in this haircut creates sexy, slim lines, whilst the soft curls accentuate the smooth features of the face, making this the perfect style for anyone wanting to look young and sophisticated.
