Check out the Top 10 Afro Goddesses here.

We've already made our Top Ten Afro Goddesses list, so it's only fair that we give the men their time to shine! The following gentlemen prove that growing your hair out into an afro never really goes out of style.

Maybe this will encourage the men in your life to do the same? Hmm...we like that idea!

Jimi Hendrix

Blast from the past! Hendrix starts off our list with his simple afro - not uncommon in the 60s and 70s. Just like his music, we consider his fro a classic.

Maxwell

Yes, we know, the Grammy award-winning singer no longer sports big hair, but doesn't a little part of you wish he did?

Lenny Kravitz

He used to swing his locs, but for a couple of years, Kravitz rocked out and head banged with an afro.

Questlove

It's no question...we love (get it?) the head of hair on the inquisitive and artistic drummer for world renown band The Roots.

Andre 3000

Half of the dynamic duo Outkast, Andre's hair changes as much as his eccentric style, but we'll always hold his afro near and dear.

Musiq Soulchild

Summertime is the perfect season to turn up the volume to Soulchild's music and feel the wind run through your coils!

Afta-1

We're big fans of the musical projects he produces, but we go crazy for his neatly cropped fro.

Jesse Boykins III

Doesn't his hair remind you of a lion's mane? We love JB3's hair, and his sweet serenades have our hearts as well.

K'naan

You may know him for the World Cup 2010 anthem "Wavin Flag", but K'naan, also known as the Dusty Foot Philosopher, has been rocking his afro for years as a rapper born and raised in Somalia, East Africa.

Young Michael Jackson

His hair takes the title for most adorable afro! Period.

No Corbin Bleu?!
Ahh Jesse. I personally told him that organic unrefined coconut oil was fabulous for his gorgeous hair.
nice job, were are all of the ladies? my hair is mix between Lenny and Jimmy. :-)
I did a similar post on my blog recently and I have to say that Jaden Smith's fro is looking GREAT these days. Also, check out the video of the Jackson 5 and Cher, all of whom have amazingly large fros! http://naturalselectionblog.com/2010/07/02/hair-porn/
I love a man with hair. Travis McCoy from Gym Class Heroes had a beautiful curly mane. And I think Jaden Smith could give young MJ a run for most adorable fro. Qtip and Mos Def also sported cute fros.
