Black men hair cuts and styles will have its own particularities when it comes to cutting or styling, as a result of its texture.

Any brother can agree that having a modern selection of haircut choices than just the majority of the things in magazines a plus.  

Being able to comb smoothly through our Kinks may be a challenge but having good Volume and being able to get the hair to stick up and behave the way we like has never been a problem.  

Let the following mature and grown up styles be your inspiration.

The Temp Fade is common among black men and is the king of all cutting styles in the South.

This particular cut requires the hairline to be faded, and lengthens gradually no more than an inch.

If your a guy that likes to show off the natural texture of you hair, then opting for a Temp Fade would be the way to go.

This haircut requires a very close skin shave on both the sides, and back of your head.

There are several types of fades, and this particular one is a low fade.

The faded haircut should only be done at the hands of a skilled and licensed barber. This haircut is very complex and difficult to accomplish especially when cutting black men hair.

Many assume they are skilled enough to hold the mirror in one hand and coordinate the clippers in the other, but is usually a big mistake as you do  run the risk of having to shave it completely off.

As for the tight hairline, if this is your thing, then using a razor is key to achieving a tight looking hairline such as the Brotha in this image.

A Buzz Cut is very mature looking and is very popular among black men. I particularly like it because it affords well with the natural texture of black men hair versus other hair textures that tend to just stick straight up.

 If your comfortable with showing off the natural shape of your head, then a Buzz Cut will do just that.

Guard 3 length is the most popular of them all because it leaves you with zero styling to do.

This is another look that can come off very mature and has a look of wisdom, and if you dont know, im hear to tell you that the sistas love the look of a Boss, and you can trust this piece of advice coming from another sista.

Dreadlocs is ideal for the Brotha who wants to have a look of free flowing hair. There are two options to achieving a look of dreads.

The first option is to grow them out by letting the hair knot and matte up which takes time and patience, and can take anywhere from 6 to 8 months depending on the growth of each individuals hair.

The second option is to get the Faux dreads installed. Other names for the Faux dreads are, Sythentic dreads, or Yarn Dreads. This look will act as a great Protective style.
