Classic And Cool Mens Curly Hairstyles

Updated on October 17, 2011

In today's society, guys often place as much emphasis on their appearance as what women do. No longer are style magazines and salons the reserve of the fairer sex. If you are a guy and have wavy or curly hair, you may feel that keeping your locks under control and looking fashionable is a tiresome task. It does not take much for long hair to get out of hand and become completely unmanageable. The good news is that there are a variety of mens curly hairstyles that are now in vogue, and which are not too difficult to maintain.

Before you head off to your nearest salon, it is useful to do your research. Thanks to the internet we can have almost instant access to pictures of celebrities and stars who have all manner of styles. If you are stuck for ideas as to what type of cut to request from your stylist, search online until you find a few examples that you believe would suit you. Perhaps your favorite sportsman also has wavy locks, or maybe there is an actor who's ringlets you think are cool.


Those men that have very thick curls should think about requesting an afro. This is a look which first came to prominence in the seventies, and since then has risen and fallen in popularity. Today it is a choice not just reserved for African-Americans, though it does still have this association. There are a number of different afros than can be worn, for example big and bushy, or tight and cropped. If you are considering this type of style, bear in mind that it looks best on young guys, if you are above thirty it may not be the best choice.

Tapered Cut

The tapered cut is an option that you may also want to consider. It has been made famous by entertainers such as Sean Combs, as well as many NBA stars. It involves having the hair trimmed short on the sides, with more length on the top. It is a choice that is popular in part because it leaves room for styling whilst being easy to maintain and manage. As the strands are not too long they do not become irritating on the forehead or by hanging low in front of the eyes.

Buzz & Cropped Look

Perhaps the simplest style to maintain would be the cropped look. Many of today's famous entertainers have curly or wavy hair, but they keep their locks so short that it is hard to know. A good case being Justin Timberlake, if he was to let his hair grow long it would give him a completely different appearance, in fact he may not have the heart throb status that he does today. Closely cropped mens curly hairstyles are a great option for those guys who have uncontrollable hair. With a cut close to the scalp, there is very little need for styling, therefore it is a perfect option for men who do not want to spend a long time in the bathroom making themselves presentable each morning. As long as cropped hair is shampooed and conditioned regularly, it is a great option for guys of any age.

Long Curly Hair

Long curly hair can be a contentious issue. On some guys it can look extremely attractive and cool, though on others it can have the exact opposite effect. If you do have long wavy locks, it is essential that you make the effort to keep yours looking fashionable. It is better to look like Jim Morrison in his prime as opposed to some throwback from the eighties country scene. The advantage of having long hair is that it can be easily tied back to create a completely different appearance.

To help ensure that you have an appearance that is fashionable as opposed to embarrassing, there are certain grooming tips that you should be aware. Do not repeatedly brush or comb wavy or kinky hair when it is dry, if you were to do so you may end up causing split ends that are impossible to repair.

When choosing toiletries, search for those products specifically designed for your type and condition of hair. For example, if you have oily hair you should not choose a shampoo or conditioner that would make it more greasy. What's more, it is best to avoid those products that contain a large number of chemical ingredients, always go for natural products whenever possible.

Comparing mens curly hairstyles should be a fun activity. It is the first step to creating an appearance that you can be proud of.
