Curly Hairstyle For Men
Studies have found that curly hair is considered the most attractive hair type as it has a lot of volume and depth, and can enhance one’s features. When thinking of a curly hairstyle for men, many different looks come to mind. In this blog we’ll talk about the two most current popular hairstyles for young men; The shag & The wet look. These two haircuts have gained a lot of popularity in recent months as they are easy to maintain and a great way to show off your natural curls. Although these two hairstyles are easiest to obtain if you have naturally curly hair, anybody can rock these styles with a little bit of styling or a perm.
The shag hairstyle has been around for many years and it gained its popularity during the 60s when growing out your hair was considered cool and a growing movement within the youth. This cut has recently come back into style with some slight variation. A shag is simply texture added into the hair with layers, it’s all about the fringe. This cut is not only stylish but also a great way to manage thicker hair as it can thin it out instead of having a blunt cut. A great compliment to this style is added layers in the front of the face, also known as curtain bangs. This adds depth to the overall look and can effectively accentuate your features. To get this cut, ask your barber for layers during your next cut and if you’re feeling adventurous, maybe go for some curtain bangs! It’s always a good idea to have a few reference photos ready for when you sit in your barber’s chair.
The Wet Look
The wet look hairstyle for men is growing in popularity as many celebrities have been seen rocking it. Once you understand your hair and the shape it tends to dry in, this hairstyle can be styled each morning in only a few minutes. To achieve this look you’ll first have to determine how you want it to look. Whether you want length, fringe, curtain bangs, or a slicked back look, you’ll need to determine that before you begin styling. To style it’s best to start with a blank canvas, fresh out of the shower after a good shampoo & conditioning. Towel dry your hair so it’s not sopping wet. Too much water in your hair will not allow the product to adhere. Once your hair is damp, pick a quality mousse or gel. Mousse works best for those with long or curly hair and gel works best for straight hair. Apply an even layer of your product throughout all of your hair and work in the shape as you go. You can leave sections together for stronger curls or pull apart pieces for a fuller look. Once you’re satisfied with the shape, use hairspray to really lock everything into place. You don’t need much, but enough for your hair to hold throughout the day. If you want to use a comb while getting the shape you want, use a wide-tooth comb so that you don’t disturb the curls too much. Each day you practice styling this haircut the better you will become at finding the sweet spot for your hair. Play around with it until you find your flare!
