Hairstyles for Men with Long Hair 1. Slick Back For guys with medium-long locks, the slick back look is as easy to achieve as it is suave. A more undone alternative to a bun or pony, the slick back works as well with a tailored suit as it does with streetwear. For fine hair , a high-shine look is optimal and can be achieved by raking fingers through clean hair using a medium hold wet-look gel. Guys with curly or textured hair can also rock this look by sweeping the front section of hair back with a pomade or mousse for greater hold.
Curls can be left largely intact, or broken up slightly for a more worn-in feel. Ponytail For those in-between days or for the man at work, a pony is an easy and quick way to style long hair. Pulling hair back with a drop of serum to ensure maximum shine, one can either conserve the natural part or pull hair directly back for a slightly more dishevelled appeal. Tying the tie over twice or three times for hold and comfort, the world is really your oyster in terms of slickness for this look.
To stop the look from feeling too restrictive or severe, leave a few strands near the front to fall by the face or be tucked behind ears. Long Textured Waves This down-and-out style is all about texture and dimension. Popularised by Harry Styles, the look features a deconstructed pompadour and waves of a medium texture and density. Then once hair is almost completely dry, take the front section and lightly backcomb before setting with a flexible hairspray.
With a playboy appeal and youthful vitality, this is the hair of heartthrobs. As versatile as it is current, buns are universally flattering and can be altered and customised according to face shape. Comb hair back with fingers and secure with a tie, allowing some tips to stick out for a relaxed appeal.
The length of your hair will determine how high or low you can wear your bun, but for best practice aim for just below the crown of the head, with some hair at the nape of your neck curling free. While guys with defined bone structures are able to wear the look as slick as they like, for the most part, a looser bun is most flattering.
For an artfully messy man bun, slide the end of a comb underneath the top to loosen sections of hair around the face slightly. Long Hair with Part A crisp part can be incredibly striking on a long mane.
Centre parting is best left to the symmetrical and those with straighter hair. To get an arrow straight part, take a fine-toothed comb to freshly washed hair and draw a sharp line from the centre of the hairline directly back before running fingers through ends with a drop of serum. An option for guys with softer features and more textured hair is an indistinct side part.
Guided either by a natural cowlick or preference, sweep the larger section of hair to one side and train it to stay in place by tucking it behind your ear. To create extra hold, use a dry texturing spray on the roots and define the part near the face with a loose hold wax — ultimately, however, this is a style that is best worn with a little movement, so tread carefully.
Half-Up The drama of loose hair meets the sleekness of a man bun. A mainstay of the long-haired man and recently put back on the map by Chris Hemsworth in his turn as Thor, when worn with longer strands this look is most striking. For the half-up, pull the top third of hair back into a tie and loop over into a knot, allowing some movement by not securing too tightly.
Long Braids For gents with long hair who like a bold look, braids can make an excellent option. For a subtle braided look, try wearing your hair in one long and loose plait at the back of your head. Alternatively, for an eye-catching style, create many tight braids, starting at your scalp and working through your long mane. You can even partner your braided look with a man-bun or ponytail for a double dose of style. Long Curls If you have lusciously long and curly hair , why not show it off in all its glory?
Thanks to their natural texture and volume, long curls can be a great look for those who have a relaxed style. As such, you should remember to condition your hair regularly but not over-wash it. Also, be sure to invest in moisture-rich hair products and let your hair dry naturally whenever possible as blow-drying can cause frizz and damage. Then, all you need to decide is whether you wear your curls swept-back or with a part. Long and Straight While short and straight hair can often appear a little plain, long and straight locks look daring and eye-catching.
With little texture or shape, this style shows off all your length without any distraction. Doing so will help to reduce frizz and enhance shine for a sleek appearance. Just blow-dry your mane using a heat-protectant spray and round brush before applying a serum to tame any frizz or flyaways.
Dreadlocks Having long hair affords you the possibility to rock a range of impressive hairstyles, including dreadlocks. Whether you braid or twist your hair, dreadlocks can appear simultaneously on-trend and uniquely stylish.
As such, they make a fashionable choice that can instantly upgrade the look of your long locks. So, if you want to make your long mane even more memorable, consider complementing it with some facial fluff. For example, long waves paired with a big bushy beard will project a wild and rugged appearance while a smooth mane partnered with some subtle stubble will look more sophisticated and work-appropriate. Then, just let you long locks fall to one side for an awesome attitude-filled appearance.
Alternatively, this cut can also work well with a ponytail, man bun or topknot, which are ideal for the warmer months along with formal functions. Long Grey Hair Think long hair is just for young gents? A long mane can suit men of any age, including those who have gone grey. While many men decide to keep their hair short as they age for a sophisticated appearance, long locks can look seriously stylish on older gents.
All you need to do is let your grey hair grow long and rock them with an attitude. An excellent wardrobe filled with smart yet laidback pieces will also help you nail this look. Long Hair for Asian Men Long hair has long been a part of many Asian cultures, and, while many Asian men today opt for shorter style, a lot still choose to rock lengthy locks.
Along with referencing a rich heritage, long hair also appears seriously stylish on Asian men. Additionally, as Asian hair is often thick, strong, and fast-growing, it provides an excellent base for an extended length. Likewise, many Asian men also have straight strands, which are ideal for achieving an impressive an elegant mane of hair. Long Blonde Hair While gents of all hair colours can rock long locks, long blonde hair appears particularly striking.
Thanks to its light hue and natural lustre, blonde hair typically looks radiant and impressive when worn long. Additionally, long blonde hair also conjures images of Norse gods, making it appear highly masculine and impressive.
Of course, pairing it with a beard will also help on this front. Alternatively, if you prefer a surfer style, consider opting for long blonde waves that fall just past your shoulders and avoid too much facial hair. How to Style Long Hair Embrace your natural texture, whether curly straight or wavy. Try a slicked-back look for a suave yet stylishly undone appearance.
Opt for a middle part if your hair is straight and a side part if it is wavy or curly. To wear your hair up, consider a ponytail, man bun or half-up look.
