There’s nothing wrong with having an abundance of hair, and while men with ponytails are often met with scorn, guys with long hair are able to create a range of stylish and versatile looks. Check out our complete guide on long hairstyles for men.

Man Bun

The sheer amount of man buns around have proven that this twisted knot isn’t just a phase or a passing trend, it’s definitely here to stay and it’s fast become a staple of a stylish guy. The man bun gets better because it’s not just one set hair style, there are multiple ways to rock it.

Being one of the easiest updos for long hair, the style can be adapted depending on how comfortable you want your hair to feel, how much time you’re willing to put in, and how far you’re willing to push the boundaries.

Ponytail

This is one of the most common styles for people with long hair – a simple male ponytail. This is really for everybody, male and female of all backgrounds and cultures. Rocking this style at some point is a must for anybody with lengthy hair. This might be the original way to manage long hair as it is so easy to achieve and it is really effective.

Perm Curl

Long curly hair for men is a style that’s ideal for men with thick locks, as you can pretty much let your hair do what it wants. This really is one of the best long hairstyles for men with thick hair, as the longer length will help to weigh down your curls, keeping them defined and less likely to turn frizzy. A little gel or wax can keep your curls in place, and a good moisturizing shampoo will maintain your hair’s health and keep it sleek and manageable.

Shoulder Length

Men’s shoulder length hairstyles don’t have to be tousled hipster manes or braided masterpieces that require constant styling. You can easily things relaxed with a simple side-swept look that allows your hair to fall naturally. With this style, it’s best to avoid anything that will take away from the natural look, so try not to go for anything like a middle parting, which will add a rigid, structured finish.

Extra Long Hair

So we’ve shown you some classic hairstyles for men with long hair, but sometimes nothing can beat just letting your hair grow out. Long hair can really make a statement, and, as long as it’s properly taken care of, won’t look messy or unkempt. However, it’s worth keeping in mind that men’s long hairstyles can look a little blunt if they’re dead straight, and it’s best to add some texture and waves to your locks if you’re going for this style.
