Hairstyles for black men

For many, black hair is an enigma they'll never quite understand. It is, essentially, as complex as black men and women in general. Black hair is expressive, freeing, liberating, and a surface philosophy for what we ultimately intend to convey. Much like personal style aesthetic, your hair, as a black man, vocalizes your identity to the world around you. 

In current times, almost mirroring the degradation of blacks by the militarization of the police force and burning of black churches, trends justly tilt towards afrocentricity and a lifestyle without restriction and persecution. Black hair has always been a vehicle for interior atonement. It's emancipating. This fall, natural hairstyles will reign while more modern adaptations play a secondary role. And still, any of the vindicating styles below can update your fall look while presenting power and solidarity. 

Locks

Before we go any further, let's be clear: the term “dreadlocks,” much like it sounds, is derogatory. It's a slur. The term was originated on European slaves ships where captured Africans were ridiculed regarding their dreadful locks. The word, in and of itself, is harmful and should be banished. Got it? Good. Let's move on.  

Ultimately the end product of natural black hair, locks are among the most traditionally acceptable pro-black hairstyles. They're rich in heritage and deeply rooted in individualism. Furthermore, locks provide warmth around your ears and neck while offering seamless mobility during cooler weather. Sure, you'll need a good locktician every once in a while for a retwist, and (hopefully) a lady friend to grease your scalp when needed, but truly this is a great on-the-go look that breeds manliness and, best of all, intrigue from the fairer sex. 

Caesar

If the clean cut look works best for your face and the curvature of your head, we recommend you go with the Caesar. Its a time-honored look that you really can't go wrong with. Also referred to as an "Even Steven" or "Brooklyn," this cut means your hair is essentially low-cut and remains level throughout. It's simple and effective, clean and conscious, and exudes characteristics of a mature man who's smartly curated through and through.

It does require maintenance, though. Bi-weekly visits to the barbershop are mandatory, as will be a product or two. Keep it simple and effective with Carol's Daughters Leave-In Moisturizer — perfect in providing a natural gloss and the right type of hydration.  

Natural With Textured Curls

Likely the most popular hairstyle for youthful, sartorially inclined black men, this is a look that is really undefined and unique to the wearer. At best it can be described as "the natural," which encapsulates a wealth of variations. This one in particular, for the curly-headed gent, is deceivingly tailored in its fluidity. At its centermost point, the style features natural curls up top and a tapered side and rear. The taper pulls the look together, locking in the look through a sharply defined line.  

With curls, the key to locking in your hair’s natural moisture (I really wanted to say "juices") is a good leave-in conditioner. Shea Moisture makes a great product and it's reasonably priced, but for alternatives, check out Best Hair Products For Black Men. Also, don't shampoo your hair more than twice a week at most. There's nothing worse than dried out curls. If you have to clean your hair, condition only. That way you don't strip your moisture.  

Taper Fade

A quintessential look for black men both young and old, the taper fade has been a staple cut as far back as I can remember. It's the process in which your barber perfectly blends your hair in a gradient-like fade from the top of your head to its sides and rear. Aesthetically, few hairstyles are more appealing than this one when executed properly.

That said, what matters most here is finding a barber who can cut with precision and skill. If you don't already reside in proximity, venture to the urban-most point of your city and victory will be yours. More than that, nothing, and I do mean nothing, is better for the maturation process of a black man than a good black barbershop experience. Life lessons will be learned.  

The Baldy

Like a lot of middle-aged black men, if your hair begins thinning at the temples or the center of your head starts to open up like the sunroof on your car, it might be time to let it go. And that's ok. Embrace your baldness. This look is one of sophistication and maturity. You appear graceful and poised, cognizant of your place in life and not forcefully holding on to something that has long left you.  

Fortunately, black men often have the perfectly shaped head to rock the baldy. Remember how cool Michael Jordan was with a bald head? Or Tyson Beckford, Morris Chestnut, Common or Boris Kodjoe? Trust us, you can pull this off easily. In fall, though, invest in a few good beanies, as you're fully exposed to the elements when they rain down.  

Happy Nappy

Millennials are great and terrible all at the same time. We're terrible because, well, we just are. But in our greatness, especially blacks, we've come to accept that we don't care what other people choose to accept about us. When it comes to hair, progressive black men have never been happier to be nappy. No combs, no brushes, and definitely far removed from dreaded pastimes like "processes" and "Jheri Curls" (see Darryl from Coming to America).

This look is ultimately what you make it. Wear it short, long or somewhere in between; the key is allowing your hair to take its natural course. Some choose to maintain an edge to lock everything in, others don't. To truly maximize this look, essentially, your confidence must reach peak levels. The coolest guy in the room is always the most secure guy in the room. Black folks are born cool, self-assured. Your natural hair is an extension of that cool. Own it. And move in a way that your acceptance of self basically speaks for itself.
