Classic Short Cut with Beard
Not all natural hairstyles for black men have to be edgy. Keep it cool and classic with this short, neat cropped hairstyle. We think it looks on point when paired with a facial hair too!
Editor's tip: Just apply Soothe to a slightly damp facial hair and work into the beard. The light, easily absorbed oil is specially blended to promote growth, soften hair at the roots and leaves no build up, making it great for beards and moustaches.

Ok, so dreadlocks aren't something that you can dabble with, but we're huge fans of locs at Afrocenchix.
Editor's tip: Remember it’s important to clean your scalp as well as remove any build up, lint, excess oil, in your locs. Use a sulphate-free shampoo and avoid shampoo and conditioners that leave residue on your hair.

In our books, cornrows are a cool natural hairstyle for men. Plus like twists they are also a protective hairstyle for not only will your hair look on point but it's also practical.
NB: Like with all afro hairstyles, cornrows come with some challenges. Done too tightly they can lead to hair breakage and traction alopecia (which is caused by the tight, constant pulling of hair). So make sure to be careful with the tension!

South of France with Beard
The South of France haircut/style was popularised by music artist Usher and his barber Curtis Smith.
The mohawk style is also consider to be a 'gentleman's mohawk' due its subtle and stylish appearance, and got its interesting name because it was created in the South of France. We think it looks great with a beard. What do you think?
