Trendy and adorable haircuts for boys with curly hair typically fall into one of these broad styles: temp fade, high fade, Mohawk, or fauxhawk. If you’re getting any of them, your hairstyle should look amazing by default with no extra modifications.
Under those broad categories, I’ve carefully handpicked a selection of the best curly-haired boys hairstyles you’ll surely love.
So here’s our gallery of the best haircuts for boys with curly hair.
Best Hairstyle For Curly Hair Boy
This temp fade cut is one of the brilliant ways to make African-American curly hair appear fresher than it actually is. The back neckline is a skin fade, while the side takes the form of a regular temp fade. This is no doubt an excellent hairstyle for boys with curly hair.
This haircut is not just for teenage boys; men with curly hair can also wear this style without looking childish.
The sides can be a skin cut or a regular temp fade, but using a low cut looks fresher and more refined.
Achieving the perfect side fade involves lowering the clipper’s lever to the lowest possible value and trimming both sides in an upward direction. The fading stage should be relatively easy for any barber worth their salt.
Bald Fade Afro
If you are looking for a haircut that will last for a longer time before it becomes rough in appearance, then a skin or bald fade should work excellently for you. Even after lasting for a while, it doesn’t grow into a rough, unkempt cut like most hairstyles; rather, it puts on a unique faded looks that’s nearly impossible to replicate at a salon.
Whether full African or African-American, leaving the top of your hair to grow and flow in its natural curly pattern is simply adorable. From the image above, this haircut has clearly aged a bit; imagine how amazing it’d have looked when it was still freshly cut.
Undercut with Curly Fringes
Fringes come in many styles, depending on your hair’s length. Getting this mohawk-style look with a noticeable fringe and a cute undercut will give you a rockstar-like look. This style is particularly helpful if you have a receding hairline, the top hair and fringe will act as a cover-up!
Bald Fade Fauxhawk
Fringes are common with ladies’ hairstyles, but these haircuts are proof that fringes can look pretty cool on guys as well, especially those with curly hair.
Pairing the fringe with a bald fauxhawk adds a hot, youthful look to the curls, making it undoubtedly an excellent style for curly-haired guys with a receding hairline.
A more stylish way of wearing a fauxhawk for boys with curly hair is by adding one more color, making it a two-tone hairstyle. Achieving the brown hue is easy; hair spray should be sufficient, but it’s a relatively temporary solution compared to brown hair dye.
Curly Hair Textured Fro Undercut
The power of curl-enhancing products like gel is evident here. The temp fade plus the sharp shape up makes the style look strikingly youthful; easily a 10/10 hairstyle..
Two-Tone + Top Mohawk
Highlights can make a haircut easily look outstanding. With or without a beard, this haircut looks fabulous, all thanks to the blonde highlights adorning the mohawk.
Undercut + Medium Wavy Top
A two-tone curly hairstyle surely looks adorable, but it’s not exactly the most pofessional-looking cut. If you’re after a curly hairstyle with an undercut that manages to retain some sort of formal look, this style is your best bet; and it looks insanely adorable as an extra.

Fade Undercut + Path
This undercut style leaves enough hair at the top, making it more flexible and versatile for any tweak. But if you are looking for Wash and go haircut, this is a no-go area for you because the top hair needs regular maintenance. Also, you don’t want to ignore the parting and the undercut for too long, do you?
Skin Fade Fauxhawk For Curly Hair
Ignoring the curly top, this hairstyle’s maintenance is relatively simple. Simply dab and massage the bare areas with moisturizing cream or oil to make it shiny, then brush the fade regularly. Maintaining the hairstyle this way preserves its near-perfect look.
The frohawk combines an Afro with a mohawk, and it looks absolutely adorable. This is clearly not fresh from the barber, but it looks insanely charming nonetheless.
Temp Fade for Kids with Curly Hair
At first sight, I fell in love with this kid’s temp fade. Mere looking at the shape up and sideburn shows that the stylist did a neat and professional job.
And because the top is short, maintaining the curls is not going to be a hassle.
Curly High Fade
Moisturization and constant maintenance is the key to maintain this kind of curly hair. The haircut maintenance isn’t exactly complicated, but it’s highly repetitive, making it a bit exacting, and from the looks, completely worthwhile.
High Skin Fade + Disconnected Top
Disconnecting the top from the skin fade and adding brown highlights was always going to look good, but I didn’t expect it to look this good. You want to give the temp fade a periodic trim to ensure it retains this perfect look for as long as possible.
Messy Top Mohawk
Mid Bald Fade
A hairstyle like this will require regular moisturization and care, mostly because of the top. The bald fade is so low maintenance that you can forget about it until you’re ready for a new hairstyle.
Short Top + Curly Fade
You might consider this if you have this kind of hair and also want a low-maintenance haircut. Unlike others, you cannot tweak this haircut much because the top hair is not long. However, I considered this style a low-maintenance haircut for curly hair.
African-American boys with voluminous hair should definitely consider trying this hairstyle. Most guys can’t replicate this style completely naturally, but it’s nothing some creativity and hair products won’t do. It’s not exactly the perfect curly hairstyle, but it doesn’t look half bad.
Fro Temple Fade
Skin Fade Undercut
This curly cut with a bald fade undercut is a creative way to style your curly hair if it’s not very voluminous. The curly effect makes for a bouncy look, creating a fringe that effectively makes the style appear both voluminous and chic.
Skin Fade + Side Color Line
If you have nothing against a healthy combination of colors on your hair, this style should work. It’s a bit demanding on the maintenance side, but the resulting look is completely worthwhile.
Sponge Sides + High Volume Top
Should I say men or boys curly hairstyles? Well, choose for yourself. But all I know is that all this haircut can work for anyone, regardless of the age.
Taper Fade + Compact Top
Textured Undercut Fauxhawk
Undercut For Boys With Curly Hair
Medium Top + UnderCut
And this type of curls doesn’t require much pampering. Just the regular hair care routine like washing, moisturizing, and comb or brush is enough.
Undercut + Messy Top
Smooth Undercut Mohawk-haircut for boys with curly hair
Before choosing a curly hairstyle, you must ensure you can wear it in your immediate environment. Some schools and workplaces aren’t very receptive to curly mohawks, and you generally want to stick with your institution’s haircut limitations.
