Wavy hairstyles for men

Wavy hair gives men many options on how to style their hair. It lends itself to textured looks for both short and long hair. They work well with layers, which tame and reduce the bulk of the waves. Wavy hair gives the fringe/fringe a rugged texture that keeps it from being too blunt and nondescript.

Long Layers

Long layers on medium to long wavy hair help it lie smoothly. The layers also reduce the bulk created by wavy hair. With either medium or long wavy hair, the long layers give the hairstyle very defined waves at the sides and ends. The root or crown lies flat.

Short, Tousled Cut

Men with wavy hair can play around with the short, tousled cut. This cut is also easy to style. To create this hairstyle, the hair should be short and tapered on the sides and longer at the top. Usually, this cut does not have a fringe or bangs. To style it, the waves should be defined with gel or a similar styling product while wet, gently tousled and air-dried to create a messy, carefree look.

The Fringe

Fringes or bangs get a rugged, textured look, thanks to wavy hair. The hair is cut similarly to the short, tousled cut except the front is left longer to create the fringe. The length of the fringe can vary to suit particular face shapes. It can also be lightly layered to reduce bulk.

The Slick-Back

The slick-back is another variation of the tapered cut, where the hair is short on the sides and slightly longer on top. Men with wavy hair should leave the top shorter—a mere few inches—depending on how wavy the hair is. The hair is then slicked back with pomade or gel. The waves in the hair give this cut more body when slicked back.
