Black Men Waves Hair
Waves are one of the most popular hairstyles for Black men with short hair. It’s a classic look that’s easy to create and maintain and it can be done on all natural hair types. You can change up the look of your waves depending on how you get your hair cut. To create 360 waves, brush the hair in an outward, downward direction (towards the front, back, and sides). Apply a moisturizer/pomade to the hair before brushing for extra moisture and definition, brush the hair daily with a wave brush, and be sure to sleep in a wave cap to maintain the style at night. Here are 37 wave hairstyles for Black men.
