You know, I have heard people say that the High Top Fade haircut is dead, that the 2010s ain’t the ’80s and that kinky hair has not much of a hairstyle range. I suppose most men these days are happy to follow the herd and follow the same fashion trends of the likes of Justin Bieber and the pretty-boy crew than try to put some personality into their hair, even if it is of the kinky type or, as I call it in my curly hair type guide, Type V curly hair. However, Manly Curls is not your site to discover what Zayn Malik’s latest nail colour is, so it is my duty to, of course, report any cases of awesome manes, which is my coined term for awesome curly hair. And for what is worth, I don’t have anything against men colouring their nails, but anyone with such interests would certainly be in the wrong blog were he looking for any information on that.

So, as I was watching some basketball (for a change), I came across NBA-hopeful Nerlens Noel and sure he’s got the skillz and movez, but the kid, darn, he’s got one mane! Nerlens Noel rocks a High Top Fade like it’s the ’80s and he just don’t care. Then, I remembered that I have a section on my blog on curly hair inspiration, and instantly I knew Nerlens Noel was going in there like a Sir.

So, fellow Manly Curls readers, I give you Nerlens Noel tight High Top Fade:

Rock that High Top Fade like a Sir

Apart from his High Top Fade haircut, Nerlens Noel likes to announce which college he chooses to play for; ergo he recently got a haircut that revealed his choice: the Kentucky Wildcats.

The High Top Fade is an excellent haircut for men with kinky hair and afro textured hair, there’s no question about it. Unfortunately, it has lost much of its popularity since the early ’90s, but the haircut itself is still there, and hopefully this article can motivate some more of you to get that Hi Top growing, gentlemen!

All the best

    Hey Rogelio, im a 13 male and every time I take a shower at night and my (1 inch type 4) curls are wet and start to dry they are perfect!! Just the way I would like to keep them in the morning. But when I go to bed and wake up in the morning, my curls on both sides and the back of my head are flat as pancake on my scalp, and then I have to comb backwards and wet my hair to get my curls. Is there any way I can keep my curls EXACTLY the way they were before I went to bed without my hair being flat on my head?
