Lots of good ideas here:


he just doesn’t know what to do. He needs to condition and gel his hair! When he cuts it, it won’t matter that the ends are dry and he can wash it more regularly if it gets greasy.

I won’t comment on the name for his hair except to say that if you’re not Jewish, it’s probably wise not to say that.

I would just take him to a really good stylist. If he is nervous they can cut in stages. I would go a for a traditional man cut, but still leave a bit of volume above the ears and on top to balance his fuller cheeks. He’s gonna look like a new man, as yes, he is very overdue for a haircut. I think you both will be happy! Washing and styling will be much easier the less hair there is to deal with.

2YorkiesMama:  id suggest taking him to a stylist for african american hair. they carry different products than your average stylist. when i worked we carried a product line called carols daughter i believe. it had more oils and conditioners for drier curly hair. that would be your best bet.

2YorkiesMama:  +1  for taking him to a professional salon… but as far as style goes, I think for a professional workplace he needs to REALLY chop it off if he doesn’t like it pulled back at all.  I had a boyfriend in highschool with a BIG fro- and he chopped it off but left his curls at the top.  I loved it and so did he.  Looks so much more polished.  I think he could really benefit from a style like Blane from Glee- let the stylist teach him how to do this with a good gel or cream product. Good luck!

2YorkiesMama:  he should look into a cut short on the sides but leave a little curl at the top. African American stylists are very well versed in cutting & styling tightly curled hair. For moisture, he should try products like Carol’s Daughters or Organic Root Stimulator and use a curl defining cream to make what curls are left shine and not a fuzzy mess. I’d avoid gel.

uncltredpearl:  Agreeing with you I think with his hair type the short and the sides and longer on top (siilar to the pic posted above) would look really good.


Would he be up for trimming his beard a little shorter too to match the length of the shorter side cut if he got that done? Think that would blend really nicely and finish off the whole look too

2YorkiesMama:  Please take him to a REAL salon where they will use scissors to cut his hair. My FH has very curly, very thick hair and he needs scissoring to get it right. Clippers kill it!

Once he has the cut, he has to tame the curls by using some gel and then NOT touching it the rest of the day. If not, the fro “reactivates” and it’s back to the mad scientist look for him.

hahaha! ‘Jew fro’ is exactly how all my Jewish friends describe that type of hair!

I would second the picture posted by KatiePerry. That would work. Or google pics of Seth Rogan. He looks a lot like your DH!

First of all, you two are ADORABLE! As for his fro, just get him to a good salon and expect to pay. They’ll teach him what he needs to know and can give him recommendations for product.
