Some Trendy Curly Hairstyles for Men in 2022

Curly Hairstyles for Men

By nature’s fantastic design, curly hair demands extra care to maintain its beauty. Hence, with curly hair comes great responsibility. There’s also its wildness and unwillingness to be tamed like Spirit the Kiger Mustang. 

A respecter of no gender, curly hair requires the same amount of care across all. After putting so much effort into its maintenance, you’d naturally want to flaunt your curls. To do that, you should style it in ways that flatter you whilst maintaining its health.

Fortunately for you, I have put together a list of trendy curly hairstyles you could consider:

1.Curly Taper Fade

Curls aside, taper fade haircuts are characterized by long hair on top. By long hair, I am talking two to four inches. The long hair is paired with systematically reduced hair at the back and sides that fades into the skin when trimmed and shaved correctly.

Now with your head of curls, you have the advantage of naturally having definition in the longer hair at the top of your head. Altogether, curls bring this style to life. For more ways to rock this style, you can look up WiseBarber’s taper fade post.

2. Curly Curtains

At the mention of the curtains hairstyle, an image of Leonardo DiCaprio in the ’90s probably pops up in your mind. This style features a long fringe parted in the middle or side. The effect of the parting is that the hair hangs over the forehead like two curtains.

Achieving this style with curly hair demands more length and curls that do not entirely defy gravity. Initially, a 90’s style, the curtain hairstyle is now making a comeback which you can easily observe across social media platforms. Therefore, it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try.

3. Quiff

Contrary to what you might believe, this style is possible to create with curly hair. Though it may look a little more disheveled than it would on guys with straight hair, it’s doable. Also, the quiff seems best when the hair on top has a textured quality to it anyway.

Note that no extra ceremony is required when styling your curly hair in a quiff. All it takes is the usual forward combing which you proceed to sweep backward. With a dash of hair product (like gel or pomade) and a blowdryer, you’re all set.

4. Curly Undercut 

This hairstyle comprises long hair at the top and short hair at the sides and the back. Unlike the taper fade, there is an apparent disconnection between the hair on top and at the back and sides. That is because there is no tapering done to create a progression.

5. Curly Man Bun

All the other styles discussed in this post require more strategic grooming and the skilled hands of a barber. With the man bun, all you need to do is care for your curly hair the right way. You also have to grow it out enough to pack it up.

One nice bit about this hairstyle is that all your hair stays where you put it. Fortunately, it rarely requires restyling all through the day.


Whichever way you choose to style your hair, always keep in mind that the health of your hair is paramount. Hence, it would be best if you were keen on choosing the right products that cater to your curly hair’s needs. Also, ensure that you use them as instructed to get the most out of your hair.
