The Best Haircuts For Men With Curly Hair

After years of being all but ignored by the hair care industry, men are embracing their natural hair more than ever before. For so long, it felt as though men only had one option when it came to haircuts—cut it all off. But these days, the options are endless, and men are taking full advantage of the natural texture and length. If you’re ready to take your hair to the next level, you’ve come to the right place. The right haircut is the foundation of any killer style, and with so many options, it can be hard to know where to start. We’ve rounded up 10 of the most popular and stylish haircuts for men with natural hair to help you get started. Whether you’re looking for a subtle way to show off your natural texture or want to put your length on display, we’ve got the perfect haircut for you.

What Haircut Looks Best On Curly Hair?

Curly hair is very versatile, so the best haircut will depend on several factors. First, you want to take your lifestyle into consideration. If you want to spend as little time as possible on your hair each day, you should opt for a low maintenance cut like a short crop. If you’re willing to spend time styling and caring for your hair, you’ve got lots of options. Then, you want to think about your face shape. The best haircut for any hair type will accentuate your favorite parts of your face. Want to bring attention to your eyes? Allow your curls to skim your brow bone.

What Is The Best Haircut For Mens Curly Hair?

Still not sure which curly haircut for men is best for you? We’ve put together a list of some of the most popular and stylish haircuts around. Be sure to save your favorites to bring as inspiration to your next barber appointment.

Short Curly Afro
The short curly afro is a great starter style for anyone wanting to play around with length and texture without committing to an intense daily styling regimen. Ask your barber to leave 1 to 2-inches of length all around your hair.

Long Waves
Long hair for men is absolutely in style this year and there’s never been a better time to play around with your length.

Modern Mullet
If you’re a risk taker, this ‘80s inspired style is perfect for you. The modern take on the “business in the front, party in the back” style is much more refined than it’s decades old counterpart. If you have loose curls, ask your barber for a shaggy cut with a little extra length in the back.

Curly Fade
A classic fade with a curly top is the perfect way to put your texture on display. Whether you leave your curls short, or opt for extra length, your natural texture is bound to be the star of the show.

Long Afro
Long hair isn’t reserved for men with looser curl textures. If you have tightly coiled curls, and want to show off your amazing texture, opt for a long afro. With at least 8-inches of lengthy locks, you’ll have plenty of hair to play around with different styles. Buns, braids, and even locs are possible at this length.

Searching for an edgy style that is bound to start conversations? The mohawk is perfect for you. This style is not for someone looking for subtlety or a low maintenance cut. Expect to head back to the barber every six to eight weeks to keep your mohawk looking crisp.

High Top Fade
Another blast-from-the-past haircut for natural hair, the high top fade is back and better than ever. This cut is best for men with type 4 curls.

360 Waves
360 waves require a lot of time and patience to perfect, but those willing to take on the challenge will be rewarded with a ‘do that's equal parts stylish and impressive.

Locs With A Fade
While locs are a hairstyle rather than a cut, you can take your loc’d style to the next level by combining it with a fade haircut.
