Curly hair styles for men can be relaxed or classically coiffed, depending on the texture and length of the hair. A layered haircut cut into long layers of the same length generates a casual look while tight curls cut in a square shape on the crown convey a professional style. Ringlet curls, cut close to the crown, are ideal for pear, oval and square face types.
For men with long face shapes, full natural-looking curls cut into a rounded shape will maintain overall symmetry. To stylize the look, blot out any excess water with a towel after shampooing and apply a small dollop of curl control cream to the hair. Work the cream through the hair before air drying it. Facial hair can be grown to further balance out the look
A neat and natural look results when curls, which fall loose, are cut closer on the sides than they are on the top. To style the hair, apply a small amount of texture paste to the strands when they are dry. Using the fingertips, direct the product from the top of the head toward the front. A control paste smoothes the hair and adds shine.
Men with curly hair should never rub their hair when they towel-dry it. The resulting friction turns curls into frizz.
