Curly hair may not be for everyone, but it can look absolutely fantastic when executed correctly. Men with naturally curly locks should consider styling them to accentuate their textured nature and highlight any natural waves in their mane.
Utilize a sulfate-free shampoo that hydrates your strands to achieve an effortless style, then complete your look with an anti-frizz holding gel that won’t weigh down your curls.
Short Sides Long Top
This classic men’s curly haircut offers versatility and volume. To make this cut iconic, the sides and nape are faded or shaved away to set off an entire windswept top styled with mousse to achieve that breezy windblown effect. Although ideal for daily wear, this casual yet textured style can also be styled neatly with gel for more formal occasions.
This classic sides, top look can be enhanced by adding an immaculate beard and using a product like Fatboy’s Perfect Putty ($21) or American Crew Pomade ($19). Soccer star Radamel Falcao wears this version with a high fade, creating an eye-catching racing stripe effect along his hairline.
To add flair to the classic short-side, long-on-top haircut, try pushing one section of hair at an angle to define a faux hawk look. This stylish look can easily be maintained while creating an eye-catching style suitable for any special occasion.
Curtain bangs are one of the most versatile and classic fringe hairstyles, framing the face softly while framing in a sweeping fashion. Curtain bangs look beautiful at any length, perfect for balancing out square or heart-shaped faces; for optimal results, ask your stylist to recommend one that falls just above or beyond your eyebrows for maximum impact.
This style was popular during the ’70s and has returned thanks to celebrities like Zooey Deschanel and Hilary Duff reviving it. It works particularly well on curlier or wavy hair, adding texture while providing both polished and casual style.
Your stylist will feather your bangs using vertical snips, making certain parts shorter while others longer. Tease your roots to add volume to the sources before finishing with a holding spray for a polished, pulled-back look. Add an expertly crafted crown of curls by pairing this style with a medium fade.
The curly mullet is an unconventional yet stylish haircut for men with naturally wavy or curly locks. It features short, tapered sides and backs that gradually transition into long coils at the crown – creating an eye-catching contrast between its tightly cropped sides and long, voluminous curls on top, creating a striking visual contrast. This look makes a statement and looks fabulous while remaining timeless and refined!
Curly hair may require more maintenance than straight locks but can still be styled into striking looks that will turn heads. The key is using products tailored explicitly for curly locks to keep them hydrated and defined after shampooing; use a microfibre towel or old cotton t-shirt after this to reduce friction when drying your locks; once dry, apply generous amounts of gel onto each curl to define their natural texture as you scrunch them with your fingers to define and enhance them, which also serves to tame frizz or flyaways!
Long Center Part
Growing naturally curly hair can add playful volume and texture, mainly if your back and sides are shorter than your top layers, as seen here with this side-swept, deep-layered style with a beard. Use plenty of texturizing products so those long curls will stay consistent!
Men with medium curls should consider styling their hair into a wavy pompadour with a low taper fade to highlight their natural texture and emphasize this look. A beard also works great, adding rugged masculinity to their style.
Kit Harington as Jon Snow from Game Of Thrones provides an outstanding example of achieving a rugged take on long curly hair. His neatly trimmed sides and fringe frame his face while the length of curls on top display their natural texture beautifully. For added definition, lightweight clay should be used.
