6 E-Boy Hair Looks for 2022 and How to Style It

This aesthetic is everything for men in 2022.

There’s no doubt about it, e-boy hairstyles are here to stay for 2022. This specific hairstyle is characterized by a longer length at the front, with a middle part and cascading strands, giving the hairstyle a curtain feel. The rest of your hair can be the same length, shorter, or even longer. However, e-boy hair is most commonly paired with hair that is slightly shorter in the back. Guys trying our e-boy hair also aren’t afraid to experiment with color. From electric blues to red hues, it’s common to see vibrant colors with this look.

What is an E-Boy?

E-boy is a term that stands for electronic boy and often refers to someone who has a large social media presence. It’s also an aesthetic that got started on TikTok. The look includes alternative fashion choices with heavy ’90s influences. Think: Grunge meets skater with a touch of bold colors. This aesthetic translates into everything from hair to fashion.

How to Style E-Boy Hair

So, you got the e-boy haircut, but now you’re not sure how to style it? Check out products you can use to easily style this look.

One way to get your curtain look under control is with a bit of mousse and a blow-dryer. On damp hair apply a hair mousse, like Suave Extra Hold Shaping Mousse. Apply a small amount of mousse throughout damp hair, comb through, and then use a round brush to blow-dry hair. This will help define curls if your hair is curly, and add volume to your look.

Have wavy, natural, or curly hair? This SheaMoisture Men Argan Oil & Shea Butter Waves Pomade is perfect for styling your e-boy hair. Work a small amount of pomade in your hands, and apply it throughout your strands. We love this product because it will add a lightweight hold to the style while using argan oil and fair trade shea butter to help keep hair soft.

If you don’t have naturally textured hair, that’s ok, you can still sport this style and add an extra boost to your e-boy hair curtain look. We love Bed Head for Men by TIGI Pure Texture Molding Paste because it helps promote texture while adding control and volume to our strands.
