Try These Haircuts for Curly Hair
1. Textured and tousled curly hair
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
Whether you have a longer or mid-length curly hair, something as simple as changing the parting of your hair can already do wonders in changing your whole look. A side part can help add a little bounce to your hair—a perfect hack for days when your hair looks flat and limp.
5. High and tight
The high and tight haircut features a high fade with short hair on top. It suits almost all types of haircuts for curly hair for men. This is a great cut, especially for the summer season.
6. Brushed back curly hair for men
Want it looking neat without cutting your curls very short? Just brush or finger-comb your curls backwards and keep them in place with a pomade or hair putty.
7. Classic Afro haircut
If you love having long her, you can go for a classic Afro haircut and wear your curls loud and proud. Just make sure to go to your trusted professional barber so you’ll get the right cut, layering (if needed), and styling tips to maintain your ‘do.
8. Medium-length curly hair
Fancy a look that’s similar to Jon Snow’s famous curls? This rockstar-inspired hairstyle allows your curly hair’s natural thickness to shine without looking like a complete mess.
Having curly hair is indeed a blessing, and definitely not a curse. With these haircuts for curly for men, you can explore different hairstyles using your favorite hair products. Just take your pick and style away!
