Hairstyles for Men with Curly Hair

Even though men with naturally curly hair may be more willing to wear it natural, there’s no need to feel as though you have to wear it that way. In fact, men with curly hair have tons of options for hairstyling and haircutting, so if you haven’t given your look an upgrade, do so now.

The basics

Try some of our ideas for styling your curly hair, and then check our list out below on specific hairstyles that men with curly hair can try. With all the curls, it is important to try to reduce frizz as much as possible, as well as keeping curls natural without looking too stiff. For basic wash-and-wear hair, use moisturizing shampoo and conditioner, and wash your hair every two to three days.

What products should I use?

For coarse curls, pomade is key. Apply it in slight daubs on the perimeter of your head, and not through the curls themselves. This will separate curls and show off your natural assets without looking overdone.

While finer hair will get weighed down with pomade, you can choose a lighter moisturizing crème such as an inexpensive Weightless Moisturizer from Dove. It will work with any type of hair, and it is affordable for those of us who like to save on our hair care products.

Short Length Hairstyle

The Buzz
Anyone can get a shorter hairstyle to decrease their prep time in the morning, reduce the appearance of hair loss, and flatter their face. If you choose a short hairstyle that lets just a touch of wave show through, you’ll still have an easy time styling it. While a short haircut is easier, just remember that all haircuts should frame your face well, and your hairstylist will be able to determine the best shape of your low-maintenance ‘do.

A simple haircut is easy to maintain, but you will need to remember that all hair needs a little love. A drop of John Freida’s hair serum will add a little shine to your short haircut. Just don’t overdo it, or you’ll look like a greaseball!

Medium Length Hairstyle

Jude Law Natural
Jude Law is one celebrity who has a fantastic hairstyle that all self-respecting curly-haired men should appreciate. His curly hair isn’t over-processed, is well cared for, and can handle a touch of color without getting completely frazzled.

Jude’s secret? Well, besides the team of professionals working on his hair, he works with what he’s got without fighting it. His hair is well-groomed, and you can get that look with just a few styling tips.

To get Jude Law’s hairstyle, you’ll need to begin with the right cut. Your hair should be cut with tapered sides, in a length that just begins to show off your natural curl. When drying your hair, use your fingers to gently pull your hair forward towards your forehead, and then add a touch of gel mousse. Biosilk mousse is very creamy and has a medium hold perfect for unruly curls.

Long Hairstyle

The Surfer
Are you a casual, relaxed guy with no need for executive hairstyles? Then put that curl to good use! Surfer style is great for summer vacationers and those of us who are lucky enough to take the season off. While men with straight hair struggle for that wild surfer look, it will come easily to you.

Keep your hair well conditioned and soft. Just because your style oozes confidence, don’t let it get away from you. You won’t need to trim your curls much while you are growing out your hair, but you should remember that well-shaped sideburns and just a hint of stubble will complete the look quite nicely. Use a defrizzer such as Redken Ringlet 07 Curl Perfector, which truly discourages frizz.

Another great way to find out which hairstyle works best for you before going to your barber is to experiment with hairstyles available at The Hairstyler program.
