Black Men Hairstyles – African American Hairstyles
The hairstyles of black men are unique and stand apart from those who are not of African American
descent. It is naturally curly and for the most part, has a soft texture. Black men’s hairstyles can be worn long
or short, depending on what the person wants.
For many years, black men hairstyles were relegated to an Afro. Some people called it the “natural”. Some
men wore them as a “big” hairstyle. Others wore them shorter.
Some of the middle aged and older gentlemen would be seen with the big Afro. Some of the younger guys
would rather wear the shorter one. They took pride in this hairstyle not only because it was easy to manage, but
because it was originally part of their ethnic heritage.
Black men’s hairstyles also consist of braids. Some men wear their hair in plaits, which are regular braids
that lie down and can be connected together. Or they can choose cornrows. Cornrows form a pattern and
stay connected to the hair for a few weeks. After that, it’s time to take them apart and braid them again so that
they will be fresh again.
There are black men that will wear individual braids down their back. They are not ashamed of it;
normally, you would see more women wearing this. However, there are some who feel comfortable wearing
this black men’s hairstyle. Some men will put the braids in a ponytail to keep their hair out of the way.
In order for black men’s hairstyles to stay fresh and presentable, they use hair products that cater to their
hairstyle. They will use sheen, braid oil or other hair products that will work for their hairstyle and texture.
To keep their hair from frizzing, a scarf is placed on their head before they go to bed. For some black
men’s hairstyles, more maintenance is involved because of the texture of the hair. Every man’s hair texture is
