Men, Embrace your Curls!

September 27, 2012 · Posted in: Blog, Hair

Short waves and curls are a rising trend in men’s hair this year. In recent years, men’s hair styles have gone from masculine to more metrosexual style. They seem to have settled in the middle, with men’s hair styles retaining a somewhat masculine edge. The boy band straightening and bedhead gelling trends are on the out. Men with curls can retain a style that is more natural and stylish.

Curls are defined by their bounce and severity. Some curls are loose and free while others are small and neat. The latest men’s styles with curls are designed to be top heavy. The curls are not meant to be heavily controlled or constrained.

One of our favorite men’s curly hair style starts with a cut that is shorter on the sides and longer on top. Your XEX stylist will adjust the length of the hair on the sides and top to best compliment your curls and face shape. If you have tight curls, we can cut your hair a little shorter to provide you with an easy to maintain curly hair style.

The intention of a curly hair style for men is to provide you with a natural, yet neat look. Maintenance is easy as well. Just add some Aveda Be Curly Curl Control to your hair after you towel dry. Hardening gels are not a good idea, as they will make your curls look crackly.

The curly hair style explained here is excellent for men with natural curls. If you do not have natural curls, talk to your XEX hair stylist to determine the best look for you.
