It’s amazing how fast it happens: You miss a few haircuts, and suddenly you’re rocking long hair. Maybe you even like how you look with longer hair, but figuring out the best long hairstyles for men might not come totally naturally. Of course, there are plenty of cool hairstyles for men with long hair—you just need to know what they are. And that’s where we come in. We’ve rounded up 22 styles, from long spiky hair to man buns, to make sure your look isn’t suffering. Read on to learn how to style long hair for men.
If you’re the type of guy that loves a carefree and stylish look, shoulder-length waves may be your match! Known as one of the best long hairstyles for men, this look keeps your styling routine simple and allows you to create a head-turning style in little to no time. Perfect for days when time is not on your side; all you need is one product to pull this look together. Reach for a curl mousse, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle CURVE IT Elastic Curl Mousse, and apply an egg-sized amount to your strands. Scrunch, let your strands air dry, and you’re good to go.
While carefree styles are on your mind, we have to put the timeless tousled shag cut on your radar. This layered look provides your mane with texture and body for a statement-making ‘do. Keep styling minimal with just a touch of hair putty, like the L’Oréal Paris Studio Line Overworked Putty, and work a dime-sized amount through your hair to shape.
Fancy a well-tailored and put together hairstyle? A slicked-back look will cover all the bases. A stylish alternative for keeping your strands off of your face, this hairstyle will come in handy for just about anything on your schedule. While this style is an excellent pick for long lengths, to really knock this look out of the park, ask your stylist to cut your strands just below the shoulders for a balanced finish.
Want to play with height, length, and texture? The disconnected undercut with a long quiff is calling your name. Sporting faded sides and a side part that leads to a heightened top, this look offers the right amount of personality, style, and charm for an unforgettable hairstyle. To keep your hair intact, spritz a touch of the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray Extra Strong Hold evenly over your strands.
For days when you need a hairstyle that’s quick and super easy to style, the spiked undercut will suit your needs. This long hairstyle for men combines length at the top with short buzzed sides to give your look a bit of edge. This haircut is oh so easy to master and a great way to learn how to style long hair for men.
Simply grab a small amount of hair gel, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel, and apply it to your length at the top. Shape your strands into thick or thin spikes, whichever you like to create your desired look.
Ready to step up your undercut game? We have a feeling this mohawk hairstyle will rise to the occasion. A great way to step outside of the box, this rocker-inspired ‘do adds a bold touch to your look that won’t go unnoticed. Simply build your spikes as you usually would to embrace your inner rockstar. If you’re not too shy to play with color, consider adding the dip-dye trend into the mix for a new and improved look!
Ah, the spiky faux hawk! Crafted with barely-there sides and longer hair in the middle of your head, this look will surely take your style to new heights. A style that’s not for the faint-hearted, you can count on making quite the impression once you embrace this hairstyle.
For those working with natural hair, you can’t go wrong with natural curls and a tapered fade. A stylish way to make your texture the shining star of your look, this cut lets your curls hang free while adding trendy detailing for a winning look. Simply add a small amount of curl mousse to your strands when needed, and your look is complete.
Can’t resist a fade haircut? Pair the look with a classic comb-over and side part to really level up your style. A great option for men with straight or wavy hair, this look works to complement your face shape with versatile detailing. Ask your barber to create a deep side part so your length can be the focal point of your hairstyle.
Who would have thought that the layered bob would become a popular men’s hairstyle? That’s right, the beloved women’s haircut has become quite the staple for men, too. This cut instantly adds body and movement to your hair for a look that offers refined, yet sophisticated appeal.
Take your layered look to the next level with long layers. A step-up from the layered bob, this look suits men who are working with shoulder-length hair. An excellent way to add shape and definition to your style, you’ll have the cool-guy aesthetic down pat.
To take a retro hairstyle for a spin, we suggest the curtain haircut. Featuring long hair with a strong middle part, it’s a stylish way to hop on the ’90s revival trend. Even if you haven’t heard of curtain cuts before, you’ve definitely seen them. Not only did every boy bander rock the look back in the day, but nowadays it’s known as the eBoy hairstyle.
One of our favorite long hairstyles for men? Long, straight hair! This head-turning ‘do offers a polished and put together appearance when styled the right way. The key to giving your hair a striking and eye-catching look is to make sure that your strands are in tip-top shape by getting regular trims and maintaining a proper hair care routine.
Long hair gives you free rein to experiment with tons of hairstyles. One in particular you can try out? The high-low fade with long fringe. One of the best hairstyles for men with long hair, this look combines a bald fade, side part, long bangs, and longer, messy texture on top for a look that doesn’t skimp on style.
If you’re looking for a more vintage approach to long hairstyles, it’s time to bring back the angled fringe with an undercut! Blurring the lines between a pompadour and a faux hawk, this hairstyle features super short sides with a super long angled fringed at the top for a playful and youthful appeal. Add a healthy amount of volumizing spray, like the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, to amp up the texture.
Want to add character to your long hairstyle? The long flat top is deserving of your attention. A staple style for African American men, this haircut sports a mid-tapered fade along the sides that builds up to long textured hair that’s sky-high. Working to highlight tight and loose curl patterns, this throwback look is another option for redefining the meaning of retro styling.
Featuring curly strands at the top and a drop fade that gradually transitions to skin, a half pompadour, half undercut gives you the best of both worlds. A great way to fuse classic styling with a modern flair, you can expect this look to become your go-to in no time.
Speaking of modern styling, long curls with a shaved design makes for a chic option. Perfect for the guy who loves to take risks in the hairstyling department, this look blends intricate detailing and timeless styling for a trendsetting look you’ll adore. Ask your barber to create your shaved design on either side of your head for a stylish pop. Once you have your new hair design, styling is easy; use a wave spray or mousse to define your curls.
Ready to play with angles? A low bald fade with a long curly top will certainly take you there. Featuring an inch-long fade at the hairline with long curls at the top, this universally flattering style can’t be beaten. Not to mention, it can be customized to suit your face shape and call attention to your features. Just add a bit of curl mousse to your strands, scrunch, and you’re ready to roll.
If you’ve been looking for a way to add some personality to your strands, you can prepare to turn heads with a sculpted afro! Just as the name suggests, the look is all about defining the shape of your afro for a clean-cut and polished look. For a well-sculpted silhouette, get your strands shaped evenly around the sides and the top for a neat look.
When it comes to long hairstyles for men that can take you from day to night with ease, a scissor cut with a side part may be the answer. This hairstyle gives your mane a more natural cut that works with your length for a shapely, yet defined finish. With a side part as the finishing touch, you can add structure and shape to your look while showing off your length. What’s not to love?
We can’t talk about the best hairstyles for men with long hair without covering the man bun—it wouldn’t be right. Not only is it a trendy style, but you’d also be hard-pressed to find a better way to get hair out of your face. When pulling your hair up is a must, gather your long strands into a ponytail—low or high—then twist the ponytail around its base to form a bun. Secure with a hair elastic, and call it a day!
