Wavy Hairstyles For Men

Every classic men’s cut or popular style works for wavy hair. Waves add volume, movement and flow that enhance any style.

Wavy hair is an asset for the short styles like the trendy textured crop but also brings something special to slick looks and the side part hairstyle.

Short wavy hairstyles just need a hint of product while some of the longer looks will benefit from some blow drying with a diffuser for added hold and minimal frizz.

Here are 21 of the best wavy hairstyles for men below.
