While this hairstyle is not the traditional middle part that most straight haired teen guys can rock, it is a messier version of it.

Again, embracing those curls is exactly what makes these hairstyles stylish. If you put some of your hair in one direction and the rest in another, you can pull off this look.

Curly Fringe

Fringe styles are extremely popular hairstyles for teenage guys with curly hair because the hair is naturally heading outwards towards your forehead.

The back and middle sections of your hair can go a little more flat while most of the work is done in the very front.

You can add a little height and texture or keep it on a downward slope to match the angle of your forehead.

Faded Fringe

The faded fringe is excellent for those who still want the clean looking sides while also adding a bit of flare in the front.

Simply ask for a short fade at your next haircut and then style your hair forward. Focus on keeping your hair low and close to your head.

This hairstyle works especially well when your hair is right in between curly and wavy, since it is a straighter looking cut.

High Volume Curls
