Some of our favorite curly ‘dos for dudes with the undercut.
What you’ll need
We’re big fans of undercuts for men, especially on those with a curly mane. Not only are they a great way to add some contrast to your curly hair, they can make your hair more manageable as you try out a dimensional ‘do. Going for an undercut also allows you to keep your natural hair texture as you take out some of the poof that often comes with curler locks. Ready to check out the curly men’s undercut trend? Read on to check out some of our favorite curly men’s undercut that are sure to inspire your new look.
Curly Men’s Undercut Looks to Try This Year
1. Curly Undercut Fade
To get a uniform flow to your curly men’s undercut, make sure to incorporate a fade into the mix. It will help your hair flow from longer to super-short hair. The shorter you go, the less visible your curl structure will be. Keep in mind: If you have curly hair, the longer you grow the top, the more you’ll notice dryness. Curly hair tends to run on the dry side, so make sure you use a hydrating shampoo to keep your hair looking its best. We suggest men use the Axe Max Hydrate 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner.
2. Extra-Long Wavy Undercut Fade
This dude has a seriously great, defined wavy look. To achieve this effect, you’ll need an overall longer haircut. You can still wear an undercut fade combination, but make sure your barber keeps it long. To get the defined wavy look, use a brush to style your hair backward. Then, use the Dove Men+Care Defining Pomade to help define your individual waves or curls.
3. Curly Pompadour With Undercut
For a similar effect with a shorter, more pronounced undercut, try out this cool style. You’ll still need to keep your hair a little longer on top to achieve a classic pomp. Combine it with an undercut fade that starts right around your temples to get the cleanest look, and wear it with some scruff for a cool dude effect.
4. Mini High-Top Undercut
For dudes with tight curl structure, make it tall. You don’t have to wear a super-tall high top, in fact, we suggest keeping it shorter and letting your natural curls pop out. It creates more of a curly top effect that looks devilishly handsome. Pair it with a tight undercut and add in a shaved design for the ultimate mix of haircut techniques.
5. Tousled Undercut Fade
For a more relaxed take on the curly men’s undercut, try out this tousled effect. You’ll wear your hair on top a bit shorter and the undercut a bit longer. Together, it makes your hair look perfectly undone. This is perfect for dudes who don’t want to spend a ton of time on their hair, but still want to look sharp.
6. Messy Hair Undercut
For the longer tousled look, try out this messy hair undercut. It keeps your hair on top extra long so you have more to work with. Style it with a side part, but don’t make it too perfect. Instead, just take a dab of the Bed Head For Men By TIGI Matte Separation Workable Wax as you style your hair at an angle, creating that messy effect.
7. Ruffled Scissor Undercut
If doing your hair isn’t on your agenda, well, pretty much ever, then this look you. It’s a fringy style, so you’ll have your hair on top about an inch or so long, styled forward. Instead of taking out the buzzer for the undercut, ask for it to be done with scissors. This will give your hair a longer, more relaxed look.
