Redhead Men with Curly Hair: The Ultimate Style Guide 2024

Embrace Those Ginger Curls, Guys!

Curly Hairstyles

It is pretty common for redheads to have wavy or curly hair. While not all textured hair is curly, curly hair falls under the textured hair category. Textured hair encompasses a wide range of hair types, including curly, wavy, coily, and kinky hair. When you have these hair types, it can take certain cuts and styles to bring out the curl pattern for the ultimate style. For redhead men with curly or wavy hair, learning how to manage your curls and finding a style you like can be a process. Looking for some inspo? We’ve got you covered, plus we’re giving you a few styling tips to make embracing your red curls even easier: 

4 styling tips for redhead men with curly hair: 

Tip 1: Wet Your Hair

Water is a curly-haired redhead’s best friend. Water helps to reshape and reset your curls. For redhead men with short hair, it’s easy to spritz on some water, do a quick re-set, and let it dry. For redhead men with longer hair, it’s a little more of a process when it comes to drying, but water is still a great tool. 

Tip 2: Don’t Be Afraid of Product

Lots of men are put off by having to use products in their hair. If you want well-formed, healthy-looking curls you have to add a little product. Gels, mousses, and curl creams are all great beginner options. For curly red hair, here are some product recommendations tailored to enhance and maintain your curls:

  • Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner: Look for sulfate-free, moisturizing formulas to keep your hair hydrated without stripping away natural oils. Brands like SheaMoisture and DevaCurl offer great options for curly hair.
  • Leave-In Conditioner: Opt for a leave-in conditioner that provides moisture and helps define curls. Kinky-Curly Knot Today and Ouidad Moisture Lock Leave-In Conditioner are popular choices.
  • Curl Enhancing Cream or Gel: These products help define curls and control frizz. Look for creams or gels specifically formulated for curly hair. SheaMoisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Moroccanoil Curl Defining Cream are highly recommended.
  • Hair Oil: A lightweight hair oil can add extra moisture and shine to your curls. Argan oil or jojoba oil are great options. Just be sure to use sparingly, especially if your hair tends to get greasy easily.
  • Deep Conditioning Treatment: Incorporate a deep conditioning treatment into your routine once a week or as needed to keep your curls healthy and hydrated. Try treatments like Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 or Briogeo Don’t Despair, Repair! Deep Conditioning Mask.
  • Diffuser Attachment for Hair Dryer: To dry your hair without causing frizz, use a diffuser attachment on your hair dryer. This helps distribute heat evenly and encourages natural curl formation.
  • Refresh Spray: A refresh spray can help revive curls on non-wash days. Look for a spray that moisturizes and adds bounce to curls without weighing them down.

Remember to adjust your product usage based on your hair’s unique needs and preferences. Experiment with different combinations to find what works best for you.

Tip 3: Get a Curly Cut

Curly haircuts are often brought up for long hair that can get weighed down, but shorter cuts can be customized for curls too. The best way to do this is to go to a barber or stylist who knows curly hair. They will make sure the cut looks good both wet and dry. 

Tip 4: Get a Wide-tooth Comb

Brushing curly hair while dry is a no-no, and most men with shorter hair don’t really need to brush it anyways. Having curly hair might mean more tangles, so using a wide-tooth comb can help untangle hair, and reshape your style while keeping your curls intact.

Style 1: Longer on Top + Shaved Sides

If you want to keep some of the volume of your curls but don’t want an overall shaggy look this is perfect. The short tapered sides will look sleek, while your curls pop on top.

Style 2: Tapered Cut

Similar to the last cut, this cut has more length on top, but it tapers down onto the neck. There are no shaved sides which gives more volume all over. This style of cut can be kept a little longer, or cleaned up to be closer to the head.

Style 5: Natural Curl Mullet 

This natural-looking mullet style is great for curly hair. Keeping it short on the sides and a bit shorter on top while letting your curl length show at the back is an awesome cut for ginger men.
