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.

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.

Temp Fade

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.

Colored Fauxhawk

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.

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..

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.

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.

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?

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.

Frohawk Cut

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

If you have this type of hair after bathing or hair wash, use any curly enhancing smoothie for men on the top hair and use a hairbrush to shine and smoothen the sides and back hairline.

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.

Temp Fade

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.

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.

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.

  1. I loved the image that you shared of the messy top mohawk! My son is turning 14 and he has super curly hair that’s hard to style. He wants to get a nice new haircut before school starts in September. Maybe this one would work for him!
