A Guide for Men With Long Hair
One of the most common questions we get is, "what are the best long hairstyles for men?" Here we’ve assembled this definitive collection of tutorials, articles, videos, photos and more, organized by category.
We've included our favorite men's long hairstyles, but you'll have to decide for yourself which are best. In any case this will give you a damn good idea of what you can do with that head of lettuce.
Most of the styles presented here are for hair that’s long enough to tie up. That means you’ve been growing it out at least a year and a half, and/or it’s at least 8” or 9” in length.
Regarding Long Hair, and Men
One of the coolest things about long hair is all the different styles you can try...but how do you do it? Especially if you're a guy?
Most women grow up learning about hair, talking about it, dealing with it, braiding, brushing and styling it, using products, etc. It’s ingrained in female culture, but not so much for guys, many who don’t even grow their hair long until their 20’s or 30’s. With a few exceptions, it’s typically not part of our upbringing.
Even so, long hair is a craft, a skill that can be mastered. We don’t have to be hair experts, but if you’re going to have long hair, you want to know what to do with it. So check out this guide and try these long hairstyles for men.
