The Headband: A Versatile Tool for Guys

You’ve worn it down, you’ve tied it up, you’ve rocked all types of hats and headwear...but have you tried the headband, or the many headband hairstyles for men?

They might feel unfamiliar at first, but you quickly realize this versatile tool can become a staple within your arsenal of long hairstyles for men—especially if you have short to medium-length hair and you’re growing it longer. If you are in the awkward stage, or your hair is just above your shoulders and too short to tie it back, the headband is a ridiculously easy way to keep the hair out of your eyes.

For more experienced longhairs, not only is the headband a great way to keep the hair out of your face, but you can get creative with combinations of tying or twisting your hair while utilizing the headband.

Headbands come in all shapes, sizes, colors and materials. There are thin elastic bands, thick headbands in elastic or cloth, plastic arches, headbands with teeth, some with rubber and silicone on the inside and many others.

Let’s just say there are many options, but these headband hairstyles feature The Longhairs' thin headbands, thick headbands and full-fitting headbands (we call 'em headwraps). From there all the styles are pretty straightforward. With that little burst of inspiration, here they are...

  1. Quick spell help for you then probably want to delete this comment. I think you meant medically-related right at the bottom.

  2. I’m not a big fan of the thinness of the headbands, but I love your headwraps… I just wish you had more solid dark colors; I don’t tend to look good in patterns or bright. I love my Ninja, Hyperdyne, and Escape Velocity. Any forthcoming plans for more colors? Maroon? Purple? Burnt orange?

    1. YO ACE! Great feedback man, we appreciate it. Duly noted on the colors, I think we need some more red also. Stay tuned amigo.

  3. The ones where you double them up look really good, love it!

    Also, those kid models are squooshable (speaking as a gramma). <3

  4. I work in a customer facing retail role, my hair is in my face a lot
    Got to give it a go
    Although customer reactions is a worry
    Would I be taken seriously anymore!

  5. Where can I get a good thin headband because I only see the thick ones on your store. I really want to get one thick headband and one thin one to see which I like better!

    1. We are working on them mate! They’ll be coming out this year and will be dopy city.

  6. So I’m pretty much in the awkward stage but I’m curious as to how long it should be before I start rockin the headband?

      The headbands are great for any length of hair. Especially in the awkward stage.

  7. just got into wearing headbands. I love them. Thought they were girly for years but then finally got the guts to go out and get some plastic headbands and now wear them everyday. Get alot of weird looks but who cares. I love wearing them in the driving style image as you have on here.

      They’re looking at you because you look AWESOME! And they only wish they could rock it like you.

  8. Hey Man, love the looks
    If you don’t mind my asking where’d you get the runners choice headband?
    Keep it up!

  9. Hey,
    Just stumbled upon this great page.
    Love the headband styles.
    I want to to know what type od headband you have used in the “the UP&BACK” style, cant take my eyes of it. Love its kinda tribal look.
    Any amazon or any other link that you can gimme to buy it.
    I use the common steel-like headband(you know the ripple shaped one) but my hair get entangled in it while removing the band (trying for To grow my mane in hot n humid climat, pray for me)so i need a wide toothed style headband like the one in thr “UP&BACK” above.
    Thanx bruh

  10. I’m digging the runners choice!!! Not only does it get the hair out of your face and off your neck, the headband pulls back the flyways. Awesome style, i possibly might use that even went I don’t work out!

  11. Just tried a few and I love having less tension so there will be less breakage. I am in the same boat as Humberino where I was doing a pony tail just to keep the hair out of my eyes and face but these are really great options. The ones with the thickest band will be great for when it gets cold too. Awesome advice and thanks for the detailed pictures!

  12. Don’t forget about the old standard issue red bandana. Been around for years.

  13. I use these and I love them. You can wear it normal to just get the hair out of your face, which is why I bought it. It looks good with your hair up or down. And you can also wear it backwards, put your hair in a ball and just slip it into the pouch area. It doesn’t look the greatest, so I only wear it like this at home. lol Its a great way to quickly get the hair off you neck when its hot, without having to use a hair tie. They fit nice when you get them, but they stretch out after a while. 15$ is a bit pricey for a headband, but its value and ease is a no brainer for me. You guys should definitely consider making some of your own. 🙂

    This is an Amazon affiliate link. I wasn’t given these, discounted or paid anything. Just thought you guys might wanna check em out.

      Dude those are sick. I like how big it is, kinda like a half beanie.

  14. The one problem I have with headbands is that they always slip back. Even the ones with the rubber backing.

    I got some mad curly hair and the plastic ones with the teeth are a bit rough on my locks.

    Any suggestions?

  15. Headbands are great! I use them for the gym and for running, and sometimes at work 🙂

  16. Thanks bro, loving this. Just 8 months into my journey, so eying the basics at the moment. Gotta keep on keeping that growth coming. You guys keep me focused. Thanks!

      Hell yea Andy. You got this! The headbands are awesome in your stage, even if it’s just when your around the house. They keep everything out of your way so you can handle business.

  17. I used a headband during my awkward stage last year. I’m not sure I’d say that I was successful… but I did. Maybe it’s time to revisit it now that I’ve got a flowing mane that very little can tame. I don’t like having it roped up and tied down just to keep it out of my eyes and mouth.

    Live long and proud!

  18. Great looks! Some classy Longhairs headbands for guys would be a good product addition.

  19. Ive been rocking the headband for over a year now. I always rock the daily driver. comes in handy when im working and it doesn’t cause the tension headache that pulling back does.

      Excellent point Micheal. That is huge with the headband, zero tension.
