Men Curly Hairstyles: A Grooming Guide

Yup, men have bad hair days too. Creating a groomed, yet stylish hairstyle for a guy with curly hair is not always an easy task. Here are some essential grooming tips from Marco:
Go To A Stylist, Not A Barber
Barbers have skills too, but hair stylists think outside the box and adjust cutting techniques to keep men’s hairstyles longer where they need to be. Guys with curly hair in particular should avoid barber shops if they want a haircut that has some length on top.
Guys Get Frizzy Too
If you have wavy hair, avoid washing it every day. Cleaning curly hair too often causes a bad case of frizz. Sweaty from the gym? No problem, rinse your hair, condition with a moisturizing conditioner and rinse again. Wavy hair types need hair styling products that clean less and moisturize more
You Must Avoid Product Build-up
We realize that avoiding product build-up and not cleansing too well are total opposites, but every guy needs to remove styling product build-up from his hair now and then. Use a clarifying shampoo once a week, or when your hair feels sticky.
Avoid the Wet Look
Let’s face it, wet and curly is a bad combo. Especially when your hair has tight curls. Avoid wet look gels that tend to make your hair stiff and too shiny and move on to pastes and creams. Plus gels are high in alcohol content and alcohol is just bad for curly hair.
