How To Tie Your Hair On Formal Occasions

In Educate by El Rubio9 Comments

Whether it’s a wedding, a nice dinner with your lady, or a swanky outdoor cocktail party, you need a go-to for how to tie your hair on formal occasions. And since we don’t call it “manbun,” we give you: the Side Part Lowball.


  1. Agreed! I had to go to a funeral and since I’ve only been growing it about 10 months my viable options were a ponytail or down.
    I went with “down” and my wife commented on how nice it went with the suit. Just about anything will do the job if you rock it with confidence!

  2. Hey chaps,

    Any advice on how to wear your hair to a formal occasion when you’re deep in the awkward stage?
    Just slick it back with a crap ton of gel/wax/mousse anything you can find?

      Here’s everything we got on the awkward stage man:

      Going with heavy gel/wax/pomade is risky, unless you’ve tested at least twice and you like the outcome. Best advice is to get a clean-up trim around the ears and back of the neck before the wedding. Then maybe some light product, like sea salt spray.

      Then let it ride, like the salmon of Capistrano.

  3. Very nice.
    But I wanna say something. Gentlemen, please don’t feel like you HAVE to tie your hair back for formal occasions. Or a date with a lady. Hair down with a suit or tuxedo looks absolutely regal (just make sure it’s recently washed, with healthy ends). Nothing would impress me more than my handsome date all dressed up with his bouncy mane flowing freely.
    If you google image search “romance novels”, half the guys on the covers have long hair flowing freely. That’s not an accident. It’s super romantic.

    Whatever you do, OWN IT. 🙂

  4. This is probably my favorite way to wear my hair. Such a good video! I wear this pretty much everyday now. Such a good looking way to wear your hair.
