4) The sexy and short layers
This style is suitable for men with wavy and curly hair. It is the classic Gerard butler flirty look with a hint of sexiness thanks to the curls or waves. You can use your hands for a basic side partition either on one or both sides like you do in the faux Mohawk for the best look.
