Hello! Which of these is the best way of saying She doesn´t have long, black hair. (In the meaning that she doesn´t have neither long nor black hair) ? :

a.) O uzun, siyah saçlı değil.

b.) O uzun ve siyah saçlı değil.

c.) O uzun ama siyah saçlı değil.

I thought about this one too, but ain´t there any shorter construction allowed? In English we don´t say "neither... nor.. " everytime, just I don´t have long, black hair.

 Yes, we can use smilar constructions in daily life in which your example we would say;

I don´t have long, black hair ----> Uzun ve siyah saçlı değilim.    OR

                                                  Uzun ve siyah saçım yok.

                                                  Saçım uzun ve siyah değil.

Other constructions  ;

If you don´t agree, neither will Ahmet ---> Eğer sen kabul etmezsen, Ahmet de [kabul]etmeyecek.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ali didn´t go and neither did I ---> Ali gitmedi , ben de gitmedim.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Neither of us done that ----> Bizden hiç kimse bunu yapmadı.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 It is possible if you refer two people by that. BUT to make it sound better in Turkish , we better say this way ;  " İkimiz de bunu yapmadık " or " Ne o ne de ben yaptım "

Btw Abla, how would you say it in English ? is it something like this ? " Neither of us two done this [that] " ?

I thought in neither of us the choice is from two, none of us is from a larger group. But I don´t know any better than you, tunci.
