5 Easy Hairstyles for Curly Boys

Newsflash! Curly boys have hair, too!

Shock, right? While we tend to emphasize curly girl hair care more, the curls of your little guy need just as much care and attention to stay healthy. While you probably already have the basics of curl care down pat, styling his curls in new, stylish ways may make you a little stumped if you’re not into having his hair constantly close-cropped.

Here are a few great hairstyles for curly boys to give their kiddie style some fresh (adorable) attitude!

1. Two Strand Twists

This is the look to try for a look that is easy to do at any age but especially easy on a toddler. The look doesn’t require much tension, making it ideal for boys with sensitive scalps. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that this style looks great and is easy to maintain! We recommend detangling with CurlyKids Super Detangling Spray to reduce breakage before you begin twisting.

2. Cornroll Braids

Another look that lets you protect his strands and give them a rest from everyday manipulation, these braids are easy to install and work with almost any length from mid-range to long. This is a great go-to when you want a more protective option for his curls while still keeping his style game up to par. You can easily hydrate their hair between wash days with Aunt Jackie’s Curls & Coils Kids EBlast Vitamin E & Flaxseed Nourishing Scalp Remedy.

3. Simple Plaits

This is one of those looks that works for both boys and girls. Easy to do and long-lasting, this protective style protects his strands from damage when they need a little break. While this look works well when dealing with a lot of hair, it can also work on mid-length hair. It’s important to keep the curls hydrated, and the Just For Me Curl Peace Defining Curl & Coil Cream will give them bounce without weighing them down.

4. Finger Coils

When you want to give him a somewhat contained look without braids, finger coils are a great look for any curly little guy. Best of all, they are really easy to do and can be done in minutes, making them perfect for those busy mornings when you’re short on time but don’t want him to be short on style! And it’s not just moms that can get their fingers in kids’ curls. Keep those curls and coils nice and moisturized with the Cantu Care for Kids LeaveIn Conditioner which is filled with shea butter, coconut oil, and honey.

5. Faded Faux Hawk

Of course, the fade cut is one of the best classic hairstyles for curly boys. But there’s nothing wrong with a remix every once in a while. This look gives a clean-cut look on the bottom to keep his hairline looking fresh while showing off his texture on top for a winning combination of edge and polish.
