Find the right haircut for your curly hair. We have ideas that would suit any hair length and type of curl.

Just because you have naturally curly hair doesn’t mean that you should just leave it looking more like a mess. There are a number of haircuts for men that can work to your advantage, not only highlighting and flattering your best features but would also help maintain your curls. So before you make that trip to the salon, be sure to check out our roundup of the best haircuts for curly hair men to find which one would suit you best!

1. Textured and tousled curly hair

Haircuts for curly hair men:
Celebrate your natural curls with a tousled hairstyle 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 pogi on an ordinary day.

Editor’s Tip: Use TONI&GUY Mattifying Putty for Men as you lightly comb your fingers through your hair. This putty gives your curls enough hold while also giving it a nice matte finish.

2. Curly hair with shaved sides

This military-inspired haircut combines clean cut with your curly hair. The shaved sides put all the focus on your curls, giving you a smart look that still celebrates your natural curls.

Editor’s tip: Make sure your scalp is free from dandruff to nail your shave side hairstyle. Use CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men to activate your scalp’s natural protective layer—your defense against dandruff. Its menthol formula will also keep your scalp feeling cool and fresh, too! 

3. Curly hair in a man ponytail

On days when you don’t feel like leaving your curls loose, you can put your hair in a man ponytail or a half ponytail. Just gather your hair on your nape (or a section of hair on your crown) and tie it with an elastic or hair tie. Simply finger-combing your hair as you tie it can give your ‘do a casual vibe.

Editor’s tip: Wash your long curly hair with CLEAR Ice Cool Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for all-day freshness on your scalp. 

4. Curly hair with side part haircut
