101 Hairstyles For Guys With Curly Hair (2021)


It is said that guys with curly hair are both blessed and cursed. While some find it extremely difficult to manage their curls, some think its so god damn glorious all the time. Hence, you can argue that this hair has a mind of its own. It looks good when it wants to, and it can make you look like a homeless guy who desperately needs a haircut which was overdue the last Christmas.

However, sporting a curly hairstyle is some part patience, and other part knowing a person comfortable with scissors in their hands. You already have an expert willing to guide you through the style.

Now, if you are a guy who is blessed with curls and need help managing it, or are a guy who wants to change the length of their hair while managing to keep the style intact, look no further. We have examples for all races, black, mixed, Hispanic and white.

Ladies, if you know a man in your life who is inches away from shaving everything off, but you think you should help them but don’t see how; this is the place to be. Additionally, if you think you can sport one of these great styles for yourself, you are very much welcome.

What Is Special With Curly Hair?

This is a hairstyle for the men with beautiful to perfect lower faces. So, what that means it if you think your best facial features are either your lips, your jaws or your chin- maybe all of it, then you’re in luck. Hence, you’ll find these hairstyles match perfectly with your personal philosophy.

Additionally, it isn’t strictly essential for winning the genetic lottery with this hairstyle as there are many ways you can support them with impressive facial hair and other accessories. You can wear them short, long or medium length depending on the occasion. And, finally, you can also add highlight colors to them that speak to your soul.

With that said, my name is Roach from StyleEasily.com and here are my top 101 recommendations of hairstyles for guys with curly hair.

Medium Afro

We start with a modified way of wearing an Afro for guys with curly hair that keeps a natural look on top and incorporates a smooth modern taper below. Now, this is a perfect blend of rough outlook with sharp design. Here, you do not need perfect lower facial characteristics as the classic Van Dyke beard, and the round ear with ear accessories give you a significant boost. Additionally, you can sport this look if you have to stick out ear type.

Medium Length + Blonde

Here is an example for guys with curly hair with full lips and dainty nose type. The handsome lip type is complimented by a light beard around the round chin. Furthermore, you can wear this look with clean shave depending on how long you want your curly hair to be.

Afro Curly + Taper

This is a good look for guys with curly hair with either pointed ear or square ear. Here, the medium soft nose profile goes well with Slightly coiled to kinky type hairdo.

Adrian Grenier Inspired

This is a man who won our heart playing the talented and humble Vincent Chase in one of my favorite series- Entourage. Now, you can argue that he plays himself in the role, but that’s for another time.

As for his style, he wears a hair that brings out his natural and confident charm that shines all over his face. Furthermore, this is an example where his Soft Waves Type hair allows his lower face- in particular, his heavy lower-lips to pop out. He usually keeps a soft light beard that also brings attention to his light eyes.

All in all, if you think you have a likable personality and a charming attitude, there is no harm in adapting the way this guy looks. Maybe, you can modify it and make it your own. Go for it.

Ladies and gentlemen, we witnessed a hairstyle that looks simply glorious. The most common trend here is that this look gives a perfect boost to the lower part of your face. In particular, if you have a squared chin, or defined protruding jaw, you can wear this with a clean cut. Other chin types like the round and pointing ones may require you to sport a light to short boxed beard.

However, in retrospect, if you have beautiful lips and nose combination, it rarely matters what style you choose since you can rock any style. That means you are blessed.

But, its ok if you don’t think you are blessed, there are other alternatives as well. Most commonly known is that you can keep things short and add a hard part to go with the style which is kind to any facial features. Moreover, you can also choose to keep things natural and add taper that adds a unique touch.
