For a long time, there has been a preference for straight hair, since it is assumed that it is easier to style. Now, though, a lot of men with naturally curly hair are more proud to show their locks as it adds more character, compared to the dull and usual flat and straight hair. There are many young men’s hairstyles for curly hair. Here are a few of the popular choices you may go for.
Suggested hairstyles for young men with curly hair
Nothing says curly like an Afro hairstyle. This hairstyle is usually worn by men with long naturally kinky hair. This can be achieved as well by having your hair treated, either by digital perming, or manual perming in your favorite salon. For straight hair, though, this hairstyle may be maintained by using gels, clay, or moose, holding the hair in place
2. Natural curls
For this hairstyle, the curls are loose and are left roughly unkempt to create a chill and loose feel. This hairstyle works best with oval, round, and pear-shaped faces. This style is easy to maintain and to create as it does not require too much combing. Simply pat your hair dry with a towel, and comb your hair using your fingertips, or a wide-toothed comb and you will get natural-looking loose curls. You may add minimal amounts of hair paste to hold the curls for longer periods of time.
3. Shaggy hair
This hairstyle is composed of long layers of curls, making it look more voluminous yet balanced at the same time. To style this cut, excess moisture must be removed thoroughly from the hair in order to tame very curly hair. It is advised that you use products that reduce frizz to keep the curly hair tame, and preventing the hair to dry and become brittle. This hairstyle works well with oval, pear, and square faces.
4. Bedhead hair
Sometimes we look our best when we’ve just gone out of bed. All natural, and seemingly perfectly styled without taking too much effort. To recreate this just-got-out-of-bed hairstyle, apply styling gel, clay, or mousse to your towel dried hair. Use your fingers to separate the curls, and with your hands make your hair look a bit messier by scrunching your hair in various places using your palms, at the same time adding more volume to your hair. This bedhead hairstyle works well with faces shaped like squares, pears, and ovals. This works best with men whose hair lengths are not yet too long to tie, but already reach the chin.
5. Wavy locks
For men with naturally wavy hair (hair that is not too kinky, yet not straight enough), this hairstyle is one of the easiest to maintain. This works well, similarly, with men who want to grow facial hair, as it complements the rather relaxed vibe the wavy locks give out. Simply brush your hair after towel-drying it, add a bit of mousse, and your styling is done. Wavy locks work well with oval, heart, and pear-shaped faces, drawing more attention to your eyes, while similarly giving attention to the relaxed style of your hair.
Different hairstyles for different hair lengths
Curly hair works well with short or long hairstyles. However, as in any other hairstyle, make sure to choose one that would fit your facial shapes properly, to avoid awkward haircuts and hair styling. If you have straight hair but want to go for curly hair, as it adds more character, there are many methods to perm your hair. But this entails additional treatment, and may be a bit more costly. However, having curly hair is easy to maintain, despite the common misconception that having curly hair is more taxing.
