63 Tips For Guys With Curly Hair. The Best Hairstyles Of 2017!

by John Griffith

If you like to be ahead of the fashion curve, you have come to the right place! In this article, we will discuss the very best styles for long, medium and short curly hair for men. Whether you have thick flowing locks, a messy, unruly mane or fine short hair rest assured – we have the right look for you. To begin with, there are some important points to consider.

Firstly, you must decide what look you’d be going for. For example, if you like travelling, exploring natural sights, and adventuring in general, you might want to consider opting for a medium (or shoulder length) haircut. This style is perfect for gents who want a more rugged and natural look, but would also like to stay stylish and professional. But be careful! Longer hair requires some additional care. Luckily, there are some very good (and reasonably priced) products on the market, that can save you lots of time. In addition, bear in mind that longer curly hair requires a good conditioner, in order to avoid getting tangled.

If you’d rather go for an edgier, ultra-fashionable look, we highly recommend choosing an undercut or a faux hawk. Both hairstyles are incredibly popular at the moment, and can be seen on countless celebs. But, like most great things out there, these cuts do have their disadvantages.

Your hair will need to be carefully styled after every wash, and you’d have to arm yourself with a good hairdryer, a comb, some styling wax, and lots of patience! If you prefer, you could go for a casually unkempt look by skipping the hairdryer. Combing is absolutely necessary, however, as it will help you shape your hair in the desired position, while the wax will keep it in its place. If you’d like your tresses to have a more voluminous effect, try using a round brush to shape your bangs. This will add a classy, vintage feel to your look. Sure, this process will need some getting used to, but it is so worth it in the long run! When done right, curly faux hawks and undercuts can be incredibly stylish and versatile. Whether you are attending a business meeting, going to work, or relaxing with your mates at a bar, you’ll be sure to leave a lasting impression!

The quiff is a great choice for guys with short curly hair!
