Natural hair, don’t care

For black men, 2016 has been all about embracing your natural texture, regardless of whether you have curly, coily or kinky hair! Just wear your fierce ‘fro big and proud!

Editor’s tip: Keep dryness-prone curls and coils conditioned with the TRESemmé Platinum Strength Stay Soft Leave-in Treatment, which can help reverse the look of up to 2 years of damage*, then ‘seal’ your hair with a hair oil, like the Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment!

Medium-length hair

The idea of long hair or a man bun a little too much for you? That’s probably why medium-length locks were all the rage this year for men. It’s the perfect compromise if you’re not keen on super short or super long hair, plus it has the added benefit of looking relaxed and dapper. Result!
