The afro is a legendary haircut for men. Everybody knows at least one 80s song or movie featuring a cool guy with a big afro on his head, and it’s up to you to continue that stereotype. With that said, there are dozens of approaches to the humble afro; we’ve compiled some of our favorites in this image gallery, so you can choose the perfect contender.
Trimming the sides of an otherwise big and messy afro creates a totally different look. It might be classified as a mohawk at this point, but there’s one thing we know for sure: it’s fun and it’s unique.
This is another top heavy afro hairstyle, but this time there’s a disconnected line up trimmed in for a little je ne sais quoi. As always, the length of the fade is entirely up to you.
Technically speaking, this men’s afro hairstyle is extremely similar to the previous one. In practice, added length on top, an out-facing shape, and a skin-close fade on the sides gives off a youthful vibrance.
Here’s another short afro, this time styled for extra flare. The clean-cut hairlines and soft side fade are what really do the trick (plus that earring!).
