Best Haircut For Black Men in 2019
Finding the best black men haircuts to try can sometimes be a challenge if you aren’t sure about what new styles are out there. The top hairstyles for black men usually have a low or high fade haircut with short hair styled someway on top. Nevertheless, with all the latest trends in black men’s hairstyles, we've quite a few you may want to try out.
From the high top and afro fade to the wave and line up, these haircuts for black men are hot, easy, and stylish.
The afro fade is all about short sides and a wild curly top. With less maintenance required than the box fade, an afro fade with curly twists is a variant of the box cut, allowing for more natural hair growth on top. The sides and back of the hair are faded high, low or skin/bald.
Short Part with Fade
The short part line is a popular and surprisingly easy style to pull off. No matter how short and thick your hair might be, ask your barber to shave in a hard part line on either side of the head. The part adds some disconnected asymmetry to the style, reflecting styles such as the side part or the disconnected undercut. Better yet, a long surgical part can even be one aspect of a cool hair design carved into your fade.
Perfect for those who like to keep a sharp, clean hairline, the line up adds style and structure to your hair. Also known as an edge or shape up, your barber will shave a line straight across your forehead and around your temples to create a boxy look which frames your face. For black men sporting a buzz cut, waves, or a cool fade haircut, the line up is a distinct and effective way to accentuate a strong jawline and chiseled face.
The wave is a divisive style in the world of hair. Your barber will either love it or hate it, but getting the cut is up to you. You’ll need special tools and product to maintain this hairstyle, most importantly a wave brush and thick hair. Chat with your barber and see if they think the wave haircut could work for your lifestyle and hair type.
Twists With Fade
Twists have been a staple for black men, but adding the fade to the classic style adds modern relevance. Before you get the cut, you’ll need at least 2 to 4 inches of hair on top of your head. The cool thing about the twist with fade haircut is that the fade on the sides allows for variation. For example, you can get a high, low, skin, or burst fade. The final hairstyle will always look polished and unique.
Practical, minimalist, and very short: the buzz cut is the hairstyle of choice for many black men. For those who like to play sports and don’t like to deal with difficult hair, the buzz cut is perfect. If you’re going to work every day, the buzz cut looks sleek and neat all the time, with very little maintenance required. With your own clippers, you can maintain this style and do it yourself regularly by simply shaving all over your head with the same guard size.
The frohawk is another classic black haircut, and it looks great whether you have tight curls or wider ringlets. It has the versatility you need for a look that can be texturized and styled with just a little product.
