6 Attractive Ways to Wear Curtain Haircuts for Men

A style you don't want to miss

Is it time for a new haircut? Are you looking for something that is trendy, attractive, and different from anything you have ever tried? Then next time you sit in your barber’s chair, you should consider getting a curtain haircut!

 A curtain haircut typically involves having your hair split fringe over your face with a middle hair parting. While the front of the hair is left longer, the back and side parts of the hair tend to be cut down.

How to Get a Curtain Haircut

To get this look your hair needs to be medium or long at the top, essentially the fronts of your hair should be touching your top lip.  If it isn’t, you might need to grow out your hair a little longer. If you do, read on to learn how to create a curtains hairstyle.

Step 1. On damp hair, work through some hair oil to make your tresses smooth. As this look is frizz-free, it’s important to use a hair product that can help you achieve that.

Step 2. Take a comb and figure out where you want your middle parting to fall. Once you have done this, you can either let your hair air dry in this shape or if you feel like it won’t hold, use a blow dryer.

Step 3.  Set your hair dryer to a medium heat setting and direct it as close to your hair as possible to keep the look smooth.

Step 4.  With the hair dryer in one hand and the brush in the other, brush through your hair, following its natural direction (from the top, downwards) to avoid frizz.

Step 5. Once your hair is dry, run a high-holding clay like the Bed Head by TIGI Manipulator Matte Cream through your mane. This will ensure your hair curtains stay in place.

Loving the curtain haircut look but not loving the idea of your hair being in your face? Then lift those curtains up! If your hair is long enough, you can gel your hair up slightly to the point where it’s out of your face. Yet your hair will still slightly drape over your face, especially at the far ends of your hair. For a firm hold while gelling your hair up use  TRESemmé Extra Hold Hair Gel

4. Curtain Buzzcut

Buzzcuts never go out of style! Put a twist on your typical buzzcut by implementing the curtain to your haircut. This style consists of shaving down the top part of your hair and leaving some of your grown hair at the top. Then fringe out your bangs, for the perfect drape over your forehead. This is also a great look for men who don’t want to part their hair. 

5. Mini Curtains

Try a mini curtain haircut if you’re still growing your hair out. This is also a great style to wear if you’re looking to try the curtain haircut and see if it’s for you. To achieve this look, leave your hair uncut in the front and trim down the back parts of your hair. This creates an increased effect for the curtain haircut. To hold your haircut firmly into place throughout the day, try using a light-holding hairspray such as Suave Professionals Flexible Control Hairspray.
