For men, short hairstyles are nothing unusual since the majority of men in this planet sport this style. These hairstyles are popular for many reasons, such as religious principles (most Christian denominations require a man to have short hair so that his head is not covered when he prays) and one's profession (e.g. athlete, military personnel, or businessman).
If you love the classic look of dreadlocks but you want to look clean and sharp, you can have short dreadlocks! You no longer need to have long dreadlocks in order for them to be stylish. Short dreadlocks allow the face to stay clear while looking neat and classy. The afro is a statement all its own, but you don't have to have the biggest afro in the area to have a stylish look. A short afro shows that any man is attractive yet at the same time tasteful. If the short afro is still a bit too much maintenance for you, consider getting your hair cut down as much as possible without going completely bald. You not only have the neatest hairstyle, but you also have the easiest hair to care for! Going that short may not be comfortable for some, so find a compromise and get a very simple, yet classic hair cut.
