Mens Wavy Hairstyle Medium
#1 – Textured Fade
One of the most popular styles for 2019 is the textured hairstyle with a fade. So what is a textured hairstyle? As the name suggests the textured hairstyle is a criss-cross pattern on the top of your head that looks super stylish and is also in trend for this year. When you have wavy hair, the texture stands out with even more prominence. The fade, on the other hand, is a deep fade that makes your sides lean and clean. This is one of the most popular hairstyles for wavy hair and it’s a perfect way to tame the wavy hair beast!
#2 – Undercut with a Front Fringe
This is a bit of experimentation for most users. But if you want to look super trendy and sport hairstyles that are sported by hairstylists and top entertainers, then the undercut with short fringe should be your choice of cut. The front fringe by itself looks weird with wavy hair, but when you pair with an undercut, it looks fantastic. The hair on top balances with no hair on the sides. This is a simple hairstyle that requires almost no maintenance at all. If you are looking for something super trendy and super stylish, consider this!
#3 – Slicked Back Waves
Who said the slicked back is restricted only to people with straight hair? Have you seen the footballer Andrea Pirlo’s hairstyle? He has his hair slicked back. Although it’s a bit longer, that’s the style that works with wavy hair. The slick back wave is one of the best styles that one can sport with wavy hair. It’s uber-smart, stylish and makes you look hot! The only thing is you do require a certain amount of hair for this hairstyle. Perfect for the workplace and for parties. This is an awesome style!
#4 – Long Wavy Hair + Undercut
This is one for the Millenials. The Long Wavy Hair has been the go to hairstyle for decades for most stylish European men. But they have had sides with a lot of hair too. The Long Wavy Hair with an undercut might seem like an odd pairing, but it looks fantastic. It’s one of those interesting hairstyles that has a bit of the old-school charm mixed with the new age styling of undercuts. If you are not the experimenting type, then stay away from this hairstyle!
#5 – Medium Length Wavy Hair Left Loose
Ever so often, I let my wavy hair grow to the chagrin of my wife. Although I think it’s going to be a mess, sometimes it looks awesome. It looks like a lion’s mane and the medium length hair left loose can look really stylish. When you brush it back, it stands up and looks pretty good. I would say, if you have wavy hair, sometimes letting it loose and untaming it is the best way to go!
#6 – Wavy Quiff + Short Sides
Generally when you hear about the quiff, you think of straight hair that is pushed up. But did you know even wavy hair can look good with a quiff? Sometimes I cut my hair short enough and when I do, I set-up a quiff. A quiff surprisingly looks really good with wavy hair because you get enough thickness and depth and that works perfectly. When you pair a quiff with short sides, you get the ultimate neat hairstyle with a bit of an edge. The short sides adds to the looks of the wavy quiff and brings attention to the quiff. Overall, this is an underrated hairstyle!
#7 – Side Part Comb Over
Let me be honest. For a long time, I’ve always thought, to do a combover, you need super straight hair. But that isn’t true. You can easily do a side part comb over with wavy hair. So how does it look? In some cases it might look jagged, but you need to use some sort of gelling agent to tame your wavy curls. When you do this, you can sport the side part comb over with style!
#8 – The Short Haircut
I personally don’t look good in short hairstyles. But! For a person with wavy hair, it can look awesome. So all you need to do is go to the barber’s and ask them to cut your hair short. Kind of look a crew cut. But the best part about wavy hair is, no matter how short you cut it, the properties of the wavy hair can still be seen. In this case, you can get very slight rumps even with short hair and that will look pretty amazing!
#9 – The Tousled Look
Everybody wants the Timothee Chalamet look. But it’s not easy to come by and if you want the tousled look, it’s best to have wavy hair. For the tousled look, you need long hair on the top of your head that can be styled and the sides need to be short to bring attention to your tousle.
Benefits of Wavy Hair
- Straight hair gets too much credit. Wavy hair, on the other hand, doesn’t. Wavy hair has something that straight hair will never have, volume! With wavy hair you can get a load of volume that can help you style your hair easily.
- Wavy hair can be styled pretty easily even with product which is not the case with curly hair.
- Even if you don’t style wavy hair, it has natural curls that look incredibly good which is not possible with straight hair!
How to Style Wavy Hair
Wavy hair has a problem. It doesn’t always sit well in one place. This has happened to many so many times. Even if you do use product, it does not hold. So how do you style wavy hair?
- The first step is to make sure you have a hot water shower. This keeps your hair wet and opens up your pores too that makes it easier to style. When you have a cold water bath, then it can get a bit difficult as the hair get scrunched up together.
- The next step is to actually apply a bit of hair product on damp hair. When you have short hair, ensure that the product reaches the base of your hair and if you have long wavy hair, make sure to grease the tips with product.
- Use a comb or your fingers to style your hair. If you want a straight and clean look, a comb should be your preferred choice.
- Lastly, the most important tip that will hold your hair. Once you are done styling, gently run hot air through your hair with a hair dryer. Make sure it’s in the lowest heat setting possible, and then run your hair through your entire hair.
