Only using the pronoun is considered very stylistic way of speaking.

He with the short black hair.
She who must be obeyed.

there is a certain heaviness and gravity when this construction is used, but it will be understood.

The construction of your first sentence is more usual

The man with short black hair.
Your wife who must be obeyed.
