The Best Men’s Hairstyles for Afro Hair
12th January 2018

New year, new style. So you’ve been plugging the same men’s hairstyle for so long now that your Facebook memories are hardly flashbacks. In 2017, men’s style and fashion pushed some serious boundaries and we were faced with some fresh and workable trends that could be adopted by even the most fashionably faint.

As it’s January (and we’re getting all reflective and wistful) we’ve scouted out… of the most fashion-forward and workable hairstyles for Men with Afro hair.

Consider a colour

We’ve previously discussed the men’s hair dye trend in our post ‘Dye Hard – The Unconventional Men’s Hair Trend’. It isn’t such a faux pas for Men to experiment with hair colour anymore and as we enter 2018 – a hair colour switch-up should be considered for many.

Whether you’re looking for temporary or permanent results take inspiration from celebrities like Zayn Malik and Tyga and hit the hair dye. Natural tones and highlights can bring definition to your hairs natural wave and curl but make sure you seek professional advice to keep your hair healthy before you bring on the bleach.

The Flat Top

That’s right, the flat top is back, bolder and bigger than ever. In the midst of a nineties revival, there’s no better time to embrace this angular hair-cut. Modern re-works include a high fade and rounded edges for a softer look.

Faux Hawk

The Faux Hawk is a fierce and stylish way to style afro hair. Fade both sides up and keep a little volume on top to achieve this style that makes a nostalgic nod to punk-rock ideologies.

Natural Texture

A full-afro is cooler than ever and many men are embracing their natural texture. To rock this look make sure your hair is healthy and manageable with some simple styling tips.

Use a natural oil like Argan or Coconut Oil on your wet hair to eliminate frizz and protect against humidity. Plus – if you must use heat, use a heat defence product to minimise damage.

High Top Dreads

This is a look that was championed across all the Fashion Capitals in 2017 and it certainly shows no signs of stopping. Style hair in dreads on top of your head and keep the style looking neat and polished with a fade or shorter layers on the side.

Short and medium length dreads help deliver shape, whereas longer length dreads can be styled loose or with accessories for versatility.

Short Afro

This simple men’s hair style has been a classic, fail-safe for many years. The Short Afro utilises your natural texture but is cropped shorter all-over for a low-maintenance do. Use a leave-in conditioner twice a week to keep hair soft and moisturised.

If you want to update this look – ask your stylist to add a deep parting on one side.

The Wavy Buzzcut

This men’s hairstyle is similar to a buzzcut, in that it’s short and manageable but delivers a lot more in the style stakes. The wavy buzzcut, crops hair short but keeps the natural texture of afro hair for a softer look which can be differentiated from the staple skinhead.

Braids

Braids never go out of style. In 2017, braids were bigger than ever with some of fashions most stylish men experimenting with braid styles. Step aside from the traditional cornrows and go for something a little more contemporary. Undercuts and braids make the perfect pairing for the man who likes a little edge.
