The Best Men’s Hairstyles For Long Hair

By Rich Krafting


Long hair isn’t just for hippies and metalheads anymore. It can be a stylish and sophisticated look. From chin-length on down, these are the best men’s hairstyles for long hair.

Of course, the most popular hairstyle for long hair is wearing it down. Just add a center or side part or slick it back. This works for the chin length to long locks as well as straight, thick, wavy and curly hair types. The key is regular conditioning and perhaps a touch of product to minimize frizz and fly aways.

Hair up looks are also cool. Beyond the man bun there are braids, half up hairstyles and viking hair. Shaved hairstyles are also a cool option for long hair. Add a fade, undercut or undercut fade for clean cut edges and even easier to style hair.
