When most people think about curly hair, they think about women. However, men can also have curly or just slightly wavy hair. If you are a man with curly or wavy hair, you may think you are limited in how you can cut and style it. Certain products, such as oils, balms, conditioners, and the right brushes, can help you manage your curly locks, but the right cut will help create a stylish look that is not as overwhelming to maintain. If you have curly hair, here are a few cuts to consider.
Wash and Go
Depending on your preference, your curly hair may able to rock a wash-and-go style. Basically, this means you would just allow your curly hair to stay in its natural state, with slight trimmings here and there, so you can wash it and allow it to air dry.
Many people consider this wash-and-go style a shake-and-go type of style, as well. Of course, the wash-and-go style will depend on the length and type of curls you have.
Men with medium-length curly hair benefit most from the wash-and-go style because it can be appealing and definitely easier to manage and style each day compared to other types of lengths. The wash-and-go style will also work no matter what type of curly hair you have — from kinky curls to wavy hair or a more looser curl, wash and go without a great deal of maintenance.
Clean Side Part
You can have a clean, streamlined look even with curly hair with a side part. The key to achieving this look is to have the right type of curly hair. For example, creating a side part is possible if you have wavy or looser curls, but it will be difficult if you have kinky curls.
To create this clean side part cut, make sure the hair is cut short around the sides and back, especially around the ears and neck. Your hair can be trimmed on top but still left somewhat longer compared to the hair around the neck and ears.
A good amount of product will be necessary to create and maintain the side part. A traditional gel or mousse can be used to create the initial part. You may also want to use some hair balm on the part throughout the day if the waves/curls start to shift.
Hide Fade and Fringe
Another great option to consider is a short cut with hide fade that is completed with curly fringe on the top. Creating this cut is not very difficult, but maintaining it can be a problem if let it grow out too much.
To get started, the hair around the sides of your head should be cut short and trimmed with a razor to complete a fade that is short and transitions to a longer amount of hair on top.
To style the curls on top, use gel or mousse and balm around the fade to ensure a smooth, clean, and attractive look that requires very little maintenance through the day. Just make sure your barber cuts and trims the sides regularly to maintain the overall clean look.
If you want even more hair left on top of the short cut and fade, leave the curls longer. Then, use various products, such as gel or mousse, to style the curls into a part on top or slick the curls back to create a modern wave.
