In the past, the concept of men with long hair was left to people who loved death metal or people who wished to be pirates. Now, we live in an era where you could easily see as many men with long hair as you do women with short hair!
Finding quality long hair styles for men though is not an easy thing to get right. Finding it hard how to make your luscious locks work in your favour? Then we have a few good ideas that you could easily tap into below. Here is some great hair inspiration.
Wild yet stylish
Take a look at this man and his hair and tell us that you don’t want to look like that. This is a fine hairstyle to go for; it looks good whilst being relatively easy to manage as far as long hair goes. Sure, it will need regular (daily) brushing however the style has a relaxed look without being over styled. It’s a great choice if you have naturally thick or wavy hair as you can work it in so many different ways.
We’ll call this one the architect, because people with hair like this are normally creative geniuses. This is the kind of hair that we all want; long, luscious, and invigorating. You’ll likely need to get an undercut to try and get rid of the bulk and the weight in the hair. It can be a good choice if you are looking for something a touch more ambitious than what you normally would go for though.
Take a look at this man's ponytail and you can see why this type of hair style is becoming increasingly popular and on trend. The main problem with hairstyles for long haired men is that it can often feel like having an oven on top of your head. This helps you to keep the airflow around top, back, and sides nice and comfortable. It also helps you to enjoy having long hair whilst knowing that it fits perfectly into the ponytail without any discomfort.
This parted haircut is a fine choice for any longed haired man. Middle partings often make you look like you are going to science class, but in long hair it tends to look much cooler. We’d recommend that you think about going for this if you have thick and straight hair. If your hair is naturally curly though, it can be a bit tougher to get to sit right. A good barber could make this work for you with ease.
To the side
Which ever side your hair naturally falls to is the best side to have your parting. This is perfect for people who have volume and texture to their hair and like a natural and slightly messy finish. This hairstyle also looks great on hair that is curly or wavy as the length is kept mainly on the top. The sides are cut shorter to smarten up the overall hair style which also blends nicely in to a beard if you have one.
