Our Fave Curly Hair Ideas for Men
1. Curly Pompadour
This kulot hairstyle for men has height and volume on top. If you shave the sides and the back of your head, you get a disconnected undercut as well. To create a pompadour, brush your hair upward and apply hair gel or wax to your curls to keep them in place.
Editor’s tip: Dandruff showing up on the shaved parts of your head can put a damper on your look. Avoid this by washing your hair CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. Its Triple Anti-Dandruff Technology removes, resists, and prevents dandruff. It also has mint that leaves your scalp feeling fresh and cool.
2. Curly Ponytail With Undercut
Got long, curly hair? Here’s an idea: Shave the lower half of your head to get a trendy undercut. Then, put your hair up in a man ponytail. That’s two hair trends in one hairstyle!
Editor’s tip: Wash your hair with Dove Men + Care Refreshing Clean Shampoo to get rid of dirt and grease while giving your hair and scalp a refreshing feel. This shampoo also has caffeine to help with the growth of your hair follicles.
3. French Crop
Another men’s hair trend that you can combine with your curls is the French crop. This haircut for curly-haired men is composed of a longer top that extends up to your forehead, or even eyebrows, like a fringe. Keep your curls in place by applying hair putty or mattifying clay.
4. Messy Curls
No time to style your hair? Just scrunch your curls while applying hair putty, and wear your hair messy! This kulot hairstyle for men is perfect for busy days.
Editor’s tip: Does your hair break easily? Use Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo. It is infused with caffeine and Trichazole Actives that help in fortifying your hair strands so hair fall due to breakage won’t interrupt the growth of your hair.
5. Full and Thick Curls
The key to having a harmonious relationship with your curly hair is to work with it and not fight it. Have your barber follow the shape and movement of your curls when getting a haircut. A layered curly haircut will help distribute your hair’s volume, resulting in a haircut that flatters your hair’s natural shape and texture.
6. Tousled Curly Hair for Men
This hairstyle pushes your mane over to one side but also leaves some hair in a loose fringe over the forehead. You can wear this versatile ‘do together with a suit when you need to look dapper or with your favorite shirt and jacket to look hip on an ordinary day.
7. Medium-Length Curly Hair
This haircut for curly hair has a back section that’s a bit longer than the sides and front. It’s a great way to showcase your natural curls because volume and texture complete your look.
8. Korean Comma Hair
To create this hairstyle, get a hair straightener, clamp a section of hair by your forehead, and move the hair straightening in a C-shape to create a comma shape. Scrunch your hair while applying a small amount of hair putty or matte clay to make the comma shapes last for hours.
9. Curly Bowl Cut
You often see the bowl cut on straight hair, but this haircut looks great on curly hair, too. Your curls add volume, keeping your bowl cut from looking plain and flat. Whether you’re headed to school or to the office, this haircut can help you face your day in style.
10. Brushed Back and Relaxed
No styling tools? No problem! When your hair has dried, just finger-comb it backward and apply some putty to style. That’s it! You can also use pomade if you want a slicked-back look.
Editor’s tip: Looking for a pomade for men? Try Axe Ice Chill Pomade. It provides maximum control that helps any hairstyle last long. It also gives your hair shine to get that sleek and polished look.
11. Curly Hair With Headband
Nothing says fun and sporty than a headband under your bed of deep-conditioned curls. Aside from keeping hair off your face, wearing a cloth headband also keeps sweat drops from getting in your eyes. Talk about a stylish and functional option for curly hair!
12. Curly Hair with Fade
Look sharp and tidy with a taper fade on your curly locks. Hair fades look good on curly-haired men as they help highlight your curly top. They also give your haircut a fresh update.
13. Undercut With Design
Curly-haired men can further show their distinct sense of style with a designed undercut. You can opt for a straight line or edgy patterns and shapes to compliment your curly top.
