Long hairstyles for men don’t mean an unkempt and shabby look. This haircut is easy to achieve and simple to maintain. It will take several years to get to this length and once you have it, you can play around with different styles. All men can rock this hairstyle whether they’re 20 or 40.

If you hair is naturally straight and not too wavy, you don’t need to follow up with too many products after washing it. For those with a wavy texture, a pomade or hair wax might be necessary to achieve the sleek look. While the hair is air drying, create the middle parting with a comb. Start combing the hair from the ends, making your way up. Stubborn hair can be tamed with a tiny amount of oil or some hair spray.

2. Sleek long hair braids

You will need a generous hair length for this look that is Asian mens favorite. Perfect for thin hair, the braids will keep the hair out of your face for the entire day without needing any touch ups. To keep the look masculine, sport a beard or a mustache.

The braids can be done on damp hair that has just been washed. Divide your hair in two equal parts and start braiding just behind your ears. Secure the ends with a thin hair band that matches your hair color. Frizzy hair or hairs sticking out can be fixed with an anti-frizz serum.

3. The colored statement

If you’re looking to spice things up, you can pair a wavy texture with a bold color. For a professional job, go to a salon to dye your hair as DIYs can be a little tricky, especially for newbies. You can keep your roots black and go for an ombre effect or just color sections of your hair in the desired shade.

For the styling part, you will need a texturizing spray and some hair wax. Start with a side part that is not too deep but still creates a fake fringe. Work the texturizing spray into your roots to achieve volume on the top part and use the wax for the ends. Scrunch up your locks for a messy look. If needed, set everything in place with hair spray. This hairstyle will also work with medium length hair.

Bed hair became increasingly popular in 2014 and has been sported by American celebrities even on formal occasions. Whether you have very fine hair or curly, thick tresses, you can achieve the sexy look with styling products.

This is one of the long hairstyles for men that can be done on the third or fourth hair day. You’ll want to use a dry shampoo to get rid of oily roots and follow up with texturizing spray for more volume. A sea salt spray will help you achieve the bed hair look, but it might dry out your hair ends. Consider using a deep conditioner twice a month for healthy looking hair.

This might look like one of the most complicated long hairstyles for men, but it actually can be achieved in a couple of minutes. The success of the look lays in the cut. A seasoned hairstylist will be able to create cool layers to match all types of faces without making you look emo. Ask for the hair to be shorter on the top, which will create more volume. If you don’t have the necessary length to pull this off, you can get some inspiration for an undercut hairstyle that will suit short hair.

To style this layered cut you can use a large round brush and a blow drier. Slightly teasing the roots will add more volume and a touch of hairspray will keep the look in place all day.

6. Effortless man bun

Man buns have been all the rage for a good reason. They make older men look young and they keep the hair out of the face. This style will not work if you have bangs or layers, but will look great on thin or thick haired men.

The best way to achieve the man bun is to gather all your hair at the back of your hair, combing it with your fingers. The length of the hair will decide how high you can go with the bun. Twist the hair to create a bun and use a tight hair band to secure the hair. Pull off different strands of hair to make it look messier.

7. Long, thick dreadlocks

If you really want to make a statement with your hairstyle, you won’t fail to impress with chunky dreadlocks. The cost of standing out of the crowd isn’t that high either. Dreadlocks are easy to maintain, however, they can’t be styled in too many ways.

Hair accessories like ribbons, bandanas, rings or pins will fine tune the look within seconds. Washing dreads should be made by soaking them in warm water with shampoo. Rinse and repeat a few times before allowing them to air dry.

8. Half up half down

This hairstyle is nothing new under the Sun, yet it’s extremely easy to sport by all men with long hair. Not as daring as a Mohawk, this semi ponytail keeps the hair out of the face, yet is still masculine and effortless to achieve.

If you’re working with extremely fine hair or if you’re dealing with balding, you can use a teasing comb to add more volume. One of the easiest long hairstyles for men, the half up half down look can be achieved on the go and even with no mirror. Swipe the hair over to one side, tease the roots and repeat on the other side. Gather the top section of your hair that will make the ponytail. Guide yourself after the top of the ears. Comb the hair roughly with your fingers and secure the tail with an elastic band.
