Low or shaved side braids

The traditional cut, which goes from the top of the forehead to the nape of the neck, goes very well with a shaded side or even a shaved side with a cool design to enhance the sides.

Mohawk in disguise

The disguised Mohawk has some differences from the Mohawk. It does not go from the forehead to the nape of the neck, but ends a little earlier, with a gradient cut. In addition, the area on top of the head is wider than a regular Mohawk.

Afro color

Colored afro's are trending. Since the focus here is on color, you can go with any curly men's haircut on this list. But it is also an option to use colored braids or even dye your dreadlocks.

High Coke

The high bun is another trend. A high bun with low or shaved sides gets a special charm with scratches on the sides.


The ideal is to focus on the top and leave it with a lot of volume. To do this, use a fork comb whenever you finish your hair.

Short Dread

The short dread looks great combed forward and with shaved sides. You can even colorize your dreads and unite two trends into one cut.

Short Twist

The twist follows the same recommendations as the dread. Although the technique is different, the cut can be the same.

Black Power

Black power is a classic. It can be very long or very short. The secret is the perfect cut, to make the black look gorgeous. Don't forget to use a fork comb to give the hairstyle plenty of volume.

Apartment top

This is another classic that never goes out of style. Will's cut in A Crazy Man on a Piece is still a success, but it's not easy to reproduce, so when you're going to do it, look for a professional who already has experience with the cut.
