You often win twice when you accentuate something that is given to you by nature. Natural coils will stop causing you inconveniences and looking awkward as soon as you learn how to present them in the best light. That involves the choice of the right haircut and a couple of effortless styling tips. Here is a bunch of ideas for African American curly hairstyles.
Curly Hairstyles for Black Men
If you prefer to go for a short crop, a small ‘fro to highlight your natural texture is a very good solution. It won’t require any particular styling, remaining professional and neat-looking between your visits to a barber.
Let the complete crop grow out a little longer than you are used to and ask your barber to define the shape of your head, preserving the length. Dense tight coils in this case will stick out up and to the sides but with the defined shape it’s a big plus and a cool look.
The longer your coily mane is getting, the more careless styles you may achieve. If these are not your plans but you definitely enjoy your lengthy curls, have them partially braided. This way you set a direction for them, obtain a neater look and get a better control of your disobedient hair. Note that a full gallery of cool braided patterns is waiting for you on the page braids for men.
Shaping spikes at the ends of your coils helps to make your mane less voluminous yet shapelier. Sometimes the ends are defined not only with a styling product but also with color. Light brown highlighted ends go fine with natural dark brown hair.
Black men curly hair looks run the gamut from long, curly Afros and high-top fades to curly twists and textured fauxhawks. Take a look at some of the best curly hairstyles for black men that are funky, edgy and downright cool.
