To get this hairstyle, you first need to grow your hair out. Now, there are two ways you can style your hair into an eboy haircut.
Straight (Traditional) eBoy Haircut
If we talk about the 90s aesthetics, this haircut used to be of straight hair which was separated from the middle making curtain bangs from either side of the face.

The modern version of eboy is rather flexible. With more and more hair types there are, getting an eboy haircut has become quite easy now.
No matter your hair type, you can rock a modern eboy look by getting your hair look more textured, uneven (since it is supposed to be messy), and part the hair from the middle shaping curtains from both sides.

All you have to do is to get a little amount of product on your hand, and apply it throughout your dry hair and slowly form the layers.
- Flat Iron to Straighten your Hair
You can use a flat iron to straighten your hair if you don’t want to style your curly hair into an eboy cut.

How to Take Care of Your eBoy Haircut?
This goes without saying, right? You worked hard to give yourself this look so why not take care of it? But how to take care of your hair?
Taking care of your eboy cut is like taking care of any haircut out there. The key is proper maintenance and looking after.
We have compiled a brief list of tips that you can follow to get your eboy cut for as long as you want.
Use a Good Shampoo
Choose a shampoo that works best with your hair. Do not use mass produced brands as they will be jack of all trades and master of none. Identify your hair type and get the shampoo that works best for your hair. We recommend washing your hair twice a week. (but still, people living in tropical climates can increase the number to three)
Get Rid of Split Ends
Now this is a bad one. Split ends can cause your hair to look frizzy and rough. This look will make you unattractive and overworked. Avoid this at all costs. Split ends are usually common in people with thick hair.
To avoid getting split ends, we recommend you use a good quality shampoo along with a nourishing conditioner. There are some of most common reasons people get split ends
- Blow-drying your hair too much
- Using low-quality, or too much hair products
- Poor diet can also cause damage to your hair
- Dehydration (also affects skin)
- Vitamin deficiency
You can always go see a health professional if your hair is getting too damaged.

Comb your Hair Dry and Wet
