Keep your curls super short for a streamlined and office-ready look with this cropped short haircut for men. With short styles like this, you practically have a wash-and-go look. Cropped cuts involve very minimal styling, so if that sounds like something you want, give this look a try.


Tuck Your Curls In

When in doubt tuck your curls into a beanie. Everyone has a bad hair day at one point or another, but having a beanie on hand will save you from the worst of them.


Comb over curls

If you’re looking for something a little softer, try combing your curls to the side. You’ll compromise on some of the structure but none of the charm. This is one of the best hairstyles for men with curly hair because it helps add volume to your style by switching up your part.

To keep your combed over curls in place (but not flat) add a small dab of the VO5 Extra Body Styling Mousse.


Big Curls

Let your curls hang long and loose or brush them out for extra volume. If you have the voluminous curly texture, why not embrace it and show it off?

To keep your curls well moisturised, don’t forget to wash your hair with products like the TRESemmé Botanic Nourish & Replenish Shampoo and Conditioner — the ultimate nourishing range infused with coconut milk and aloe vera!


Long Curls

Let your hair grow to your shoulders to show off long curly hair. You can also opt for a haircare routine that requires minimal styling. In this case, the less you do the better your hair will look.

If you let your hair grow longer, you’ll quickly learn that long hair can sometimes be pretty overwhelming. Make sure to invest in a headband for those days when you need your hair out of your face.


Medium Afro

Wear your thick curly hair big and voluminous! Whether you’re into the super-defined curly afro look or not, a medium-sized ‘fro is the perfect curl hairstyle for men that will show off your curls without too many worries.


Tied Curls
