written by Shane McCarthy

If you follow the men’s hairstyles world you must have noticed how textured hair is getting more and more popular nowadays. How do the textured hairstyles work for us men? It is pretty simple: apart from the volume, it brings a pretty easily maintainable hairstyle that looks really fashionable. It’s really hard to go wrong with textured hairstyles. Below we’re presenting the gallery of our favorite looks that take texture to a higher level.

Textured Drop Fade

Here, the drop fade is kept lower to the hairline which allows there to be more length at the crown of the head. Adding texture to the top of the hair allows for more layering and gives it an edgier look.

How does one even come across such creative styles? I mean, literally, the layers are very obvious but the longer strands are well under control without being frizzy. The best part is the thin yet dense texture and the highlights certainly make the fun ten times more.
