Top 10 Best Curly Hairstyles in 2021

Curly hair in men has the potential to look absolutely amazing when styled properly.

A bit of styling or product can effectively get rid of all the problems you might run into with your curly hair; namely the frizz and static. There are many haircuts available, like a fade or a taper can control a lot of the side frizz while leaving the volume of the top’s luscious curls looking fantastic.

If you’re reading this, you’re probably looking to switch it up a bit with your curly hair. Well, you came to the right place! In this article, we will go over 10 of the hottest Curly Hairstyles in 2021.

Short Curly Hair + Box Fade Haircut

This look banks off of your natural curls! Ask your barber for a box fade at your desired length and define the curls with a little pomade or wax.

Curly Hair Undercut

With this haircut your curls can really let loose with volume and shape as the underside of the hair is cut with a low fade. The drastic contrast in length compliments both natural and hand-styled curls. This look is super modern and can accentuate the jawline!

Curly Top with Hard Part

With high volume and shape on either side of the scalp and sharp definition on the other, this look is professional and flattering to the jawline. Ask your barber for a hard part on either side of your head and use a light pomade or wax to define natural curls or to shape straight or wavy hair.

Curly Fringe

This look can be rocked in many fashions: for a sleek look ask your barber for an undercut, high fade, or a hard part. Different lengthed strands of hair towards the forehead create the timeless fringe look.

Curly Quiff

The Quiff has been rocked by men for decades now and seems to evolve slightly in style depending on changing trends. Currently, shorter sides are in style as they create a better aesthetic due to contrasting lengths. Depending on personal style, ask your barber for a scissor cut for length or a fade for shorter sides.

Curly Bro Flow

To rock a curly bro flow it’s best to have natural curls or waves as this is one of the simplest looks to achieve if the shape is already there. Typically the length for this cut falls from ear to shoulder length and is pushed back with either your hands throughout the day or with a very light pomade. For an even more laidback feel, pull a couple of strands out in front of the forehead.

Slicked Back

To achieve the slicked back look you’ll need the help of your barber. Ask them to thin out some of the top layer, fade the sides, and add some layers to manage your curls a little easier. A heavier product is recommended to hold the hair in place throughout the day. Also, using a blowdryer on wet hair while brushing the hair back and in place will help to keep your hair slicked back.

Curly Hair Fade

Another easy to maintain cut as the sides or back don’t need to be styled. This look typically goes from medium length on top to shorter as you go down, depending on what type of fade you’d like.

Curly High Top Fade

This look is typically rocked by black men with curly hair as the length on top allows for the curls to loosen up and achieve this stylish look. With the high fade, you can have your barber shave in some interesting lines or designs.

Medium Length Curly Hair

A desirable cut for naturally curly hair as it doesn’t take much to style. This look simply sits around the ears banking on the natural volume the curls provide. To maintain medium length curly hair, get regular trims with your barber and use a light pomade if necessary to shape the curls around the face.


Whether you already have curly hair or are looking to play around with your straight or wavy hair, these top 10 best curly hairstyles in 2021 are your go to guide for finding your signature look! Invest in some quality hair products to keep the style, like a pomade, hair clay, wax, or gel. Aslo, it’s always recommended to have a few photos on hand to open up a conversation with your barber when going for a new look.
