Jet-Black Hair Is The Glossy Trend Of The Moment

With TikTok aesthetics like dark academia taking over the fashion scene, it is no surprise to learn that the beauty world is right behind it. Darker, moodier vibes are currently on the rise due to hit shows such as "Wednesday," and people are using them to influence their overall appearance, including their hair color. And if you want to get in touch with your dark side, jet-black hair is the perfect way to go about it.

The midnight black hair trend is a favorite of celebrities who are natural blondes and brunettes and are looking for a way to drastically change up their look. It is also the definition of sleek and chic, and makes a statement that can hardly be ignored. "Midnight black has a blue undertone or blue lowlights adding a luxurious reflection," R+Co Collective Member and Colorist Richy Kandasamy told Byrdie. Whether you have naturally glossy black hair or are dyeing your strands to get the look, there are some incredible ways to rock this rich hair color.

Shortie cut

A short, jet-black haircut is the perfect option for a woman who wants something simple and easy. While the black hair color is known for being edgy, the short bob and bangs give off a seemingly innocent feel. Instagram influencer @naraaziza takes this to the next level when she adds another dimension: curls.

Choppy with layers

A choppy or shaggy layered hairstyle works perfectly with the grungy early-aughts feel of the jet-black color. With Y2K trending in the fashion and beauty worlds, it is no surprise to see this combo of a prominent hairstyle of from that time paired with the hair color of the moment.

Slicked-back and sleek

Slicked-back hairstyles are in no shortage after the appearance of TikTok's clean girl aesthetic. Jet-black hair is the perfect way to pull off the look, as it naturally has the shine to look slick and wet. Show off the color with a common clean-girl hairstyle: a slicked-back ballerina bun with front strands pulled back with pins.

Long, layered curls

The midnight blue tones in jet-black hair are particularly noticeable when strands are curled, whether naturally or by way of heat tools. Long layers are a great haircut option to show off the color best. Between the striking hue, your curls, and the layers, your hair won't go unnoticed.

Face-framing bangs

Jet-black bangs can upgrade your entire look and are a great choice if you are looking to embrace a rockstar vibe, like Blackpink's Jennie on Instagram. In fact, depending on your wardrobe, you can also lean more toward a goth feel or even dark academia with this style and color. Plus, bangs are a great way to frame your face and accentuate your natural features.
