Long Hair Ideas For Men

By Rich Krafting


Today’s hairstyles for men with long hair have come along way since the laughable scraggly ponytail. All of these cool looks feature the latest hair trends, just with longer hair.

From chin length locks swept back to really long hair with an undercut, these fresh styles are cool and clean cut.

Check out these pictures for long hair ideas for men that go way beyond the man bun, though we have some of those too.

1. Long Sweep Back

Slicked back hairstyles are still a great style. The sweep back does just what it says and sweeps hair back with some volume and texture. Style it by working a matte product through hair and pushing hair back from the crown with fingers.

2. Cool Long Surfer Hair

Messier textured styles are huge this year and that applies to longer hair too. This surfer can be styled without hitting the beach. The secret is salt spray to get that definition and volume with the pump of a bottle.

3. Curly High Top Fade
