Top 10 Male Curly Hair Cut Trend 2022

1. Dreadlocks Curly Haircut

The exact origin of dreadlocks — a hairstyle in which strands of hair are combined into rope-like sections — is unknown, but there is evidence that people wore them thousands of years ago. People in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Americas have been known to wear some form of dreadlocks. Despite their long and global history, there are many misconceptions about dreadlocks and the people who wear them.

But these misconceptions are often based on stereotypes and biases. Dreadlocks (also known as "locs," "locks," or "dreads") can form organically, when a person refrains from combing or brushing their hair. That doesn't mean they're necessarily dirtier or messier than other hairstyles — people who form them this way still clean and care for their hair. And many people who wear dreadlocks rely on more styling and manipulation, by building the locks strand by strand on their own or with the help of a professional loctician.

Dreadlocks became popular in the Western world through the rise of the Rastafari movement in Jamaica in the 1960s, and the philosophy and the hairstyle spread through reggae musicians like Bob Marley.

Locks can form in all textures of hair if it is left to grow without manipulation. But certain textures of hair are more conducive to forming them. This makes sense if we remember that locks are formed out of strands of hair bound together. Curly or kinky hair already grows in spirals, so it's easier to get it to form into a tightly wound dreadlock than it is with straight hair. Think of it like a coiled telephone cord becoming so easily tangled, while a straight laptop cord typically stays tangle free.

2. Short Afro Male Curly Haircut

The Afro often abbreviated to the ‘fro is derived from the term “African-American,” however, the style dates to the nomads of East Africa’s Somalia. The nomads had a custom of wearing their hair in variable sizes of bushes smoothed out with or without butter depending on their age and marital status.

The hairstyle gained traction in the United States in the 1950s, leading into the 1960s through a small group of women who no longer wanted to feel pressured to conform to straight hair standards. The style later became prominent during the Civil Rights Movement and, more specifically, through the “Black is beautiful” movement in the mid-twentieth century.

For the African American community, wearing an afro in the late 1960s and early 1970s represented a celebration of the black beauty and a rejection of the Eurocentric beauty norms. Today, an afro still represents pride in one’s natural hair texture and heritage within the Black community.

An afro is very fluffed out hair that is generally performed on coarser hair textures. During the 1960s, the afro hairstyle began in a relatively tightly coiffed form referred to by the Black press as “close-cropped.” It was a hairstyle worn by a small number of young Black female dancers and jazz singers to express their racial pride.

Progressively, the close-cropped style developed into a large round shape worn by both male and female African Americans. The hairstyle became very popular in the 1960s and early 1970s and had seen some resurgence in the 1990s and the 2000s.

3. Curly Haircut with Short Back and Sides

So, what exactly is a short back and sides haircut? Somewhat unsurprisingly, it’s exactly what it sounds like.

Short back and sides can be loosely defined as any short-length haircut in which the hair at the back and sides of the head is cut shorter than that on the top of the head. Outside of that one key detail, there’s a considerable amount of variation.

For example, the hair on the top of the head can be cut short and tight, worn combed to the side, or left slightly longer and slicked back. All of these styles still fall under the banner of short back and sides.

Much of this style’s popularity owes to its clean, smart looks and low-maintenance nature. If your aim is to look sharp with the least possible amount of effort, short back and sides are four words to live by.

4. Curly Mullet Hawk

Mullet Mohawks are an ancient hairstyle from the country era. It has made in waves within the punk rock era movement within the 80s. Then, it came back in the 90s with an athletic twist since many footballers sported out. Whether you hate or like it, you can’t deny the iconic-ness of the style. You can even opt for a 20th-century modern version of a Mohawk mullet for a punk rock look.

A mullet is a man’s hairstyle where the hair is cut short at the front and sides. And, the middle, as well as the back, are left long. It usually looks like your hair is combed or styled towards the middle of your head. Then, it falls down along your back.

It’s very simple. You would keep the sides low while keeping the middle and back long. You can choose to grow it out to look punk rock. Then, you can style the Mohawk mullet using braids, beads, curls, or anything that you want. Your hair is your canvas.

5. Long Afro Male Curly Haircut

An afro is a hairstyle produced by a natural growth of kinky hair, or specifically styled with chemical curling products by individuals with naturally curly or straight hair. The hairstyle can be created by combing the hair away from the scalp, dispersing a distinctive curl pattern, and forming the hair into a rounded shape, much like a cloud or puff ball.

For people with wavy or straight hair, the hair style is created with the help of permanent hair structure-changing creams or gels and/or other solidifying liquids to temporarily hold the hair in place. Particularly popular in the African-American community of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the hairstyle is often shaped and maintained with the assistance of a wide-toothed comb colloquially known as an Afro pick.

"Afro" is derived from the term "Afro-American". The hairstyle is also referred to by some as "natural"—particularly the shorter, less elaborate versions of the Afro—since in most cases the hair is left untreated by relaxers or straightening chemicals and is instead allowed to express its natural curl or kinkiness.

6. Curly Ponytail Cut

The ponytail haircut method is often used to cut hair at home to create a layered look. The technique involves pulling your dry strands into a high ponytail at the top of your head. Then, the length of the ponytail is brought forward so that it falls in front of your forehead, allowing you to see the ends of your hair in a mirror while you cut them (be sure to rid your pony of any bumps or knots first to ensure that your layers come out precise and the right length). A second hair tie is wrapped around the base of your ponytail, then slid down the length to serve as a marker for where you would like to cut your hair (based on how much you’d like to cut). Some adoptees have even used measuring tape for length precision. Then, you just grab a pair of hair cutting shears and cut along the hair tie for a straight, clean cut. Once the hair ties are removed, you should have a heavily layered haircut.

If you’re thinking about attempting the ponytail haircut method you have to keep in mind that results will differ based on hair type and length. The technique can be complex, and is best used on long or curly lengths due to its dramatically layered results. If you’re going to try it, be prepared for mistakes and know the hacks for fixing a bad haircut. Consider seeking the hands of a professional stylist, especially if you want a short layered hairstyle.
