    How to Style:

    1. Apply a quarter-sized amount of medium hold styling cream to fingertips.
    2. Distribute through dry hair by raking product through from front to back. Concentrate product on the mid-lengths and ends rather than at the scalp.

    Recommended Products:

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    square, oval, pear

    Tip:

    Concentrating product through the mid-length and ends rather than the scalp will help you avoid build up from too much product. Too much near the scalp area can cause an oily feeling and could weigh hair down.

    How to Style:

    1. Towel dry hair by wringing out excess moisture.
    2. Work a golf ball-sized amount of medium to high hold styling pomade through hair from mid-lengths to ends.
    3. Finish with a bit of liquid hairspray rather than an aerosol version. The weight of product from a pump spray will help tame spirals.

    Recommended Products:

    Woody’s Quality Grooming Head Wax is an excellent pomade for this style. It contains beeswax, ginger root, aloe and horsetail extracts, safflower seed oil and cannabis sativa seed oil to nourish deep down for incredibly healthy hair. It’s great for virtually any hair type and it define curls and tames frizzy hair.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    oval, pear

    Tip:

    Moisture is the key to healthy curly hair. Be sure to use shampoos and conditioners containing moisture-rich ingredients. Also, never skip conditioner! Conditioner balances the pH of hair and closes the cuticle, giving it a shinier and more manageable finish.

    2. Use fingers to part hair to one side. Use either eye as a guide for where to create the part.
    3. Arrange the hair along the hairline down and to the side to create a frame for your face.
    4. Use a small amount of matte finish texture paste to further define hair in the fringe section.

    Recommended Products:

    How to Style:

    1. Distribute a nickel-sized amount of matte styling cream through dry hair.
    2. Arrange curls toward the front to create fullness along the front hairline.

    Recommended Products:

    For texture and separation with a firm yet touchable matte finish, try Alterna Hemp Natural Strength Concrete.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    oval, square, pear

    Tip:

    Guys with thinning hair can pull off curls as well, though it’s important to choose products with a matte finish or very little shine factor. Medium or high shine products will make the scalp show more, resulting in hair that looks even finer. Matte finish products give body to hair and downplay any areas that are thinning.

    How to Style:

    1. Apply a quarter-sized amount of light hold styling cream to dry or towel dried hair.
    2. Finish with a light hold hairspray. Opt for medium or buildable hold if you like more control.

    Recommended Products:

    For a firm hold, finish with Redken for Men Hold Still styling spray for lasting power and a natural-looking finish. The humidity-resistant formula helps control fly aways and eliminate static.

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    oval, square, heart

    Tip:

    The sides of this cut can be done with clippers, though keep in mind that curly hair looks shorter once it bounces back. Use a longer clipper setting first and remember that if it’s still too long, you can always go shorter.

    How to Style:

    1. Check out DreadHeadHQ.com for some fantastic information about starting your dreads!
    2. Maintain your dreads by applying wax to part or all of each dread and using either a palm-rolling or finger-rolling technique to keep them tight.

    Recommended Products:

    Try the Ultra Dread Kit from DreadHeadHQ.com. It contains great products, tools and instructions for creating and maintaining dreads!

    Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

    This particular length is great on those with oval, square or pear shaped faces. Opt for longer dreads if you have a round or heart shaped face.

    1. Shampoo and condition.
    2. Wring excess moisture from hair with a towel.
    3. Work a quarter-sized amount of medium hold styling gel throughout hair.

    Apply styling products to fingertips first before distributing through hair in a raking motion. Using fingertips ensures the product is distributed evenly rather than clumping in one area.

    A great finish centers around finding the perfect style to complement your face shape and using the right products for your hair type. Pro products are more concentrated so you’ll get more bang for your buck.

    Additionally, remember that when you switch up your style, you’ll probably need a different product since you’re going for a new look! Keep life interesting by trying one of these head-turning curly hairstyles!
