The past years have brought on a most amazing styling trend among men. They have started to embrace their natural curls and wear them as proudly as they can, something that only women used to do. This speaks volumes about loving oneself and about true equality in aesthetics between men and women, and we are proud supporters.
That is why we have compiled a list of the best and most attractive 45 short curly hairstyles for men which can help you out if you need some ideas on how to style those gorgeous curls of yours. Here they are!
1. Handsome Twists and Curls
It’s not a secret anymore. Women and girls all around love men with curls in their hair. There’s just something about sinking your fingers into a full head of curls. And if you mix that with a well-groomed beard and a strong jaw line, you’ve fallen into the golden trifecta.
2. Messy Short Curly Hairstyles for Men
Is there another thing ladies love about curls? Yes, when they’re messy and unkempt. It reminds them of when you were a young teen in high school or a heartthrob in college, and all the girls were chasing after you.
3. Curly Bangs
This haircut is all about being serious in the back with a very short and classic cut and having a handful of pretty curls falling carelessly over your forehead and just above your eyebrow line. Tip – let her brush them away from your eyes.
4. The Jamie Dornan
If there’s one guy who knows what ladies want, it’s the actor who was chosen to give life to one of erotic literature’s most wanted characters, Christian Grey. In real life, Jamie Dornan has dark blonde curly hair and the same steely gray eyes as his character.
5. Short and Curly with a Hard Part
If you want to look slick and elegant as far as short curly hairstyles for men are concerned, we suggest you consider a hard part. It’s way better than your natural part, and it will allow for some depth in your hair.
6. Tame Locks
Short curly hairstyles for men can also be tamed down if you want them to. All you need is some high-quality hair care product to add some moisture into your locks and a soft brush, and you’re there.
7. Fiery Short Curly Hairstyles for Men
Since this article is all about flaunting what nature gave you in the sense of curls, then we believe you should do the same when it comes to your hair color. An amazing shade of red or dark ginger such as this one should not go unnoticed.
8. Natural Short Curly Hairstyles for Men
Speaking of natural hair, sometimes leaving the house just as you woke up is best when you have curls. Run your fingers through your hair, and you can be on your way because nothing can beat the beauty of a natural head of curls.
9. The Wavy Ivy League
The Ivy League haircut is a very famous one that has now seeped into the general styling world. It started off as a haircut worn by students attending one of the famous Ivy League colleges, but now you can wear it as well if you fancy it enough.
10. The Short Afro
What we loved most about this example of short curly hairstyles for men was just how amazingly well designed it is. If you look closely, you will see that the lines of the haircut, as well as the lines of the beard, seem almost drawn on the model.
11. Blonde, Short, and Wavy
With green eyes, a thick woolen sweater, and a large autumn scarf. What more could you want in terms of dressing yourself and styling up? If you want to copy this look hair-wise, you will need a considerable amount of hair wax.
12. The Platinum Design
There are so many amazing things going on with this hairstyle that it’s hard to focus on just one. First, you have the wiry, curly hair, of course, then you have the platinum color, then comes the dark naturally colored undercut, and then you can see the double V design or hair tattoo. Wow! Now that’s a haircut!
13. Asymmetrical Short Curly Hairstyles for Men
Asymmetrical in fact means that you part your hair on one side and then you cut it shorter on the left and longer on the right. Or the other way around. In any case, you will be left with a beautiful tangle that will highlight your cheekbones.

17. The Classic Cut
