Black men's hair is naturally curly, and this gives it the strength to be styled in different ways. At first, it may strike as unimaginative, and plain, but many variations of hair styles can be done with it.

The most popular black men hair styles include the following:

Buzz Cut is a very short hair style, typically shorn with clippers. This style is very easy to manage and the look can be maintained in mere seconds. Some of the black men's hair is curly so Buzz cuts are usually done shorter compared to others. That is intended to control the hair's curl. With this style, the cut's edges along the hairline are sharply defined.

Shaved Styles are basically longer than buzz cuts. A shaved style often features ridges and geometric patterns. Sometimes, words are even shaved onto hair, mostly along the back of the head or neck, to provide distinctive style and individuality. The side of the hair is usually tapered to shorter lengths especially along the hair line or sideburns.

Dreadlocks are popular black men hair styles for those with Jamaican or Caribbean backgrounds. The style is done with thick twists and braids covering the head. It may be worn as long as the collar, or extended down the waistline.

Cornrows are the braided hair styles in which the hair kept close to the scalp in medium-thick braids. These braids are typically small, like that of French braid.

Afros never get left out when it comes to black men hair styles. An afro is a natural black hair style in which the strands are worn in a puff around the head.

The individual's face shape and hair care preferences are to be considered in choosing the hair style. When picking out the best design, make sure to adapt it to your preferences to get the desired result. If you are unsure which design suits you the most, do consult a hair stylist!
