DeAndre Brackensick and his Long Curly Hair!

DeAndre Brackensick joins our ranks of inspirational curly hair men. With his curly long locks, he makes even those curly girls jealous as he complements his great voice and musical talent with his long mane. Keep an eye on him, he is destined for stardom!


Wow, just wow. I am a guy who dislikes TV but this is getting out of order. Yet again, yours truly came across another curly dude on TV and, what is worse, it was on the same rubbish show, American Idol. Now, before you all start wondering if I truly have an obsession with American Idol as this is the third time I blog about anything related to it, you must understand that many times when I am blogging, I leave the TV running in the background on any random channel. I call this my writing juice: I get all creative and resemble a mondern day Hemingway (or so I wish) when the TV is muted in the background. Whatever, it does the job.

So, again, I come across another impressive set of curly hair on a TV guy. If you were to read the name DeAndre Brackensick, you’ll probably be wondering what I am smoking but, if I give you the following picture, you probably know who this article will be about:

DeAndre Brackensick is the kind of curly hair men that just inspires you with such a long mane. With a hairstyle and an image resembling Fabrice “Fab” Morvan of the shady group Milli Vanilli, DeAndre Backensick is really playing his cards right in the American Idol show. The show is full of boring wannabe pop stars with the same equally boring hairstyles and then, here comes this guy, with a long curly mane better looked after than that of judge Jennifer Lopez’s and blows everyone out of the water with his musical talent. His difficult-to-find voice, ability to change pitches, good looks and awesome hair is, mark my words, a recipe for stardom. Trust me, if DeAndre Backensick didn’t have that awesome set of curly hair, his stardom potential would not be as high (an old friend of mine is a male celebrity stylist and he confirmed my thoughts). Oh, and did I say this curly man is just 17 years old (born October 21, 1994)?

Really, DeAndre Brackensick’s attitude towards his hair is truly inspirational. You don’t need to be a fan of having long hair or even like curly hair, but the way DeAndre’s curly hair looks is just great, this coming from a man who knows how difficult it is to groom long curly hair and who gets daily compliments from women on his hair.

I see what you did there, Mr. Brackensick…


DeAndre Brackensick is a biracial curly dude and is a great example for men with curly hair, whichever the race or ethnicity. His Type IV curls are of inspiration to those men with very coily or kinky hair who would like to grow their curls to Shoulder Length and beyond, and I haven’t been able to find any of Mr. Brackensick’s pictures with short hair so the man really digs the long curly hairstyle. Just like Troy Polamalu, DeAndre Brackensick joins the ranks of curly hair men with an awesome long curly mane and is today’s inspirational curly dude!

All the best.

    HIs hair is great. Good inspiration for a curly guy. Not to correct you Rogelio but I think his hair is type III. Yes his curls is type but looking closey its just very spirally defined corkscrew curls which are a subset of type 3 that goes along with ringlets. His hair is no where as tight as corbin bleu”s curls which are type 4. I actually think Brackensick has hair similar to yours and mine who also has type 3. In a couple pictures of your long hair it looks like the same corkscrews.

      It was a shame he left the show. Great talent and I am sure he will succeed in his goals since he has already shown everyone what he can do.

    I am truly fasinated with Deandre, his hair and his singing. Yes, i agree, he has the recipe for stardom.

    Random question: why don’t you have a picture of the actor Matthew McConaughey on here? He has beautiful curly hair which always looks nicely groomed.

    Nice website piccies. cheers

      Hi Jaycee,

      We will be covering Mr. McConaughey soon but I had to make this editorial decision the other day: George Clooney or Matthew McConaughey. There was no contest, I went with the former:

      If you are into blonde curly men, read around, we have another Matthew (Morrison) that I am sure you will be keen to read on!

      All the best.

    Thanks for this info on Deandre and his hair! I really appreciate this. I actually let my husband have a look and he posted a link to it on his blog.

      I am glad you enjoyed it. Many ladies like you read Manly Curls to finally convince their husbands to do something with their hair so you certainly are not alone!

      Tell him to shoot me an email if he needs further convincing to get his curls rocking!

      All the best

    Great coverage on Deandre, Rogelio. He really has great hair to boot with his great voice and I think he will find his particular niche in the music industry once his AI adventure comes to an end. We must remember he is only 17, he has a whole life ahead of him.

      Agreed. I am sure he will do quite well in the coming future.

      All the best.

      Yep, he’s 17 so will do much more as the years go by. I’m sure he’ll DeAndre Brackensick will do good after American Idol.

      All the best
