There are a ton of black men haircuts out there, but it’s time we tamed the beast and narrowed it down to the top 10. Since black men tend to have striking features and strong hair, there are a lot of stylish options to choose from that compliment your features.

Whether you’re looking to rock the latest trend, or set the mood for the rest of the night, we’ve got a style for every occasion coming your way right now!


1. Cool and Short

This cool and short haircut shows the world that you’re not messing around. I mean look at Eddie Murphy here! I know that man as Dr. Dolittle, and a comedian, but with this style and those shades he looks more like Dr. Denzel if you get my drift.


2. The Small Afro




If you have long hair and you want to use for a modern and popular style, then the small afro is for you. We’re not talking about a big puffy afro, this is tamer and to the point. It’s not as tight and hard as the style above.

3. The Buzz Cut

The buzz cut is a more casual cousin to the cool and short. In this style, we’re rocking the short look, but it’s not tapered or styled as much. This is for the gentlemen who wants a style that doesn’t take a ton of maintenance, but still looks like you got a haircut.




4. All Twisted up

You want to look professional, but you really don’t want to blend into the crowd. You want to stand out with something elegant and organized. You want the power of long hair with the style of a shorter look.



5. Natural Curl



This style only requires a moisturizing shampoo to keep your hair healthy and vibrant. If you have naturally curly hair, why not let it grow out and show the rest of the world what they’re missing?

This style relies on your natural hair, so don’t worry about products or styling, just keep that beautiful head of hair happy and healthy.

6. Professional Style

Maybe you had some crazy styles back in the day, but now the career is demanding that you taper down the crazy and start sporting a style that reflects your status as a rising star.

Will Smith is the perfect example of this style. Notice how he has a kind of caesar cut going on, with just enough length to give it that slight curl?

7. Faded Back

Any kind of fade hairstyle is great for black men. Here we have a nice short top with a high fade that taper down the length on the sides and back. It has sophistication without being too much.




8. The Afro Mohawk



Our next hairstyle for black men brings together the mohawk and the afro that only this type of hair can pull off. Here we have a fauxhawk going on with the hair on the sides being tapered slightly while the middle still has length.

9. Short Curls

You’ve got curls, but you want to keep them in check? Fair enough, choose the short curls style which allows everyone to see those natural curves in your hair while still keeping them in check. This isn’t as natural as the other curly option above, but it still has the same impact.



10. Clean Shaven Head

Are struggling with thinning hair? Not anymore you’re not. If your hair isn’t cooperating, just shave it all off. I’m talking as bald as the day you were born! How does that sound? It’s a classic look that says a lot.
