Guide on Men Hair Types: An Epic Blueprint for Dudes Without a Clue About Their Hair

Gentlemen (and ladies, if there are any of you around), I have just published a huge guide on men hair types so that you can put your mane into an actual hair type and base your choice of hairstyles and hair products around such hair type. This hair type guide that I created is called the ISEZ hair type guide and has your hair categorized into 4 possible hair types: straight, wavy, coiled and kinky.

Knowing your hair type is important because this is your starting point to further down the line customize your hair to look and be exactly as you want. Just like I cover in my book, The Men’s Hair Book (click link to see the book), hair profiling (of which your hair type is one element of) is key in determining the best ways to groom, style and take care of your hair. And what’s even better, all of this is done conveniently and without having to sacrifice your testosterone levels in the name of beautiful (or buriful) hair.

For those of you who have also read my other book, The Curly Hair Book (click the link to see the book), you will find that the ISEZ hair type guide is different to the hair type guide in The Curly Hair Book, with the latter being specific to curly hair only. Thus, the curly hair type guide that I use in The Curly Hair Book is only relevant if you have curly hair and, even still, you can still use it concomitantly with the ISEZ hair type guide too. The most important thing, after all, is to nail down your hair type (or curly hair type) and get going from there onwards to optimize the best of your locks.

You can find in the link the ISEZ hair type guide, and I highly suggest that you bookmark the guide for future reference. It’s one hell of a long guide, and I decided to detail it here at Manly Curls so as to offer you a one-and-only men’s hair resource to start making the most of your locks.

Enjoy the guide and, if you have any questions, feel free to post them in the guide too!

All the best.

    So I have absolutely no clue what my hair style is even with the help of this lovely article, but I must say I hate it and it has to change. Basically for my entire life so far, I have kept it short with a simple buzz cut, because as it grows out, it grows OUT. I like to call it the white boy Afro. By this I mean my hair becomes so “poofy” that it makes my head look 10x bigger. It grows straight out instead of down like you mentioned it would once it passes a certain length. I hate to say it, but it almost feels like I’m petting a dog when I touch it… I haven’t really tried anything to change it and was just wondering if anyone would have any idea how to go about making this monstrosity look more stylish. Thanks, all the best.

      Honestly you and I have the same type of hair, when it grows it grows and it makes my head look huge, It never falls down it could become a skyscraper. I’ve learned to use small amounts of oil. I’m Latino but I have somewhat close to this hair but your description of yours is really accurate . I use olive oil and it makes my hair grow nice.

    Hey Rogelio, I’m not sure whether I have wavy or straight hair. The thing is that when it’s short-medium, I can manage to get that Brad Pitt Fight club haircut. But when I try to grow it longer it curls up at the neck. Can you tell me how to grow my hair long? Thanks in advance.

    I want to embrace my natural hair and just let it grow. I’m trying to grow my hair out to look like Marcelo (the Brazilian football player) and I was curious as to how I could possibly get my hair to look like his.
