For a man who wants a trendy look, there are many types of African American male haircuts that you can get. The most popular haircut among black men is the taper. This style of cut keeps the hair short, close to the neck. You can also get that buzzed or completely bald. This style is perfect for men who have afro-textured or curly hair. You should tell the stylist what you want and he will cut that to suit your taste and texture.
