50 Best Long Hairstyles for Men
41. Ian Somerhalder Long Hairstyle: Wild layers
The Vampire Diaries actor Ian Somerhalder looks smoldering with his wild layers of hair and scruffy-yet-sexy stubble. He sports short, shaggy bangs and longer hair at the nape of his neck, creating a modern “mullet” hairstyle (without the scraggly “rat tail” at the end). This hairstyle is all about volume and texture, so prep your hair with volume boosting mousse before blow drying roughly. Generally this should create lots of texture, but if you want even more, simply use a texturizing spray (e.g., a sea salt spray from the hair care aisle, available in most stores) on your hair, scrunch it up a bit, and leave it to dry naturally. Too easy!
42. Charlie Hunnam Long Hairstyle: Straight up
English actor and screenwriter Charlie Hunnam wears his long hair straight up in an edgy and modern long hairstyle. If you have very long, straight, and fine/thin hair, then this hairstyle is a good option. The key is creating volume at the crown, whilst sweeping hair backwards. Comb hair up and back, taking care not to comb it flat against the scalp. Use hairspray to keep your hair from flopping, and try not to touch it too often, as this can mess up the style.
43. Jake McLaughlin Long Hairstyle: Wet-look curls
American actor Jake McLaughlin sports messy, wet-look curls and very short designer stubble. If you have thick, curly, stubborn hair that is difficult to style, consider trying out the wet-look style. Work wet-look gel into your hair, and style it however you wish – a side fringe is good, as well as slicked back as much as possible. Keep your look from being grungy by making sure that your facial hair is immaculately groomed, and that you are well-dressed to boot. Avoid hair gels that contain silicone, as they can weigh hair down, making it look limp and greasy.
44. Keith Urban Long Hairstyle: Straight layers
New Zealand–born Australian country music singer Keith Urban is well known for his long hairstyles (although he has recently chopped his long hair off, unfortunately), and his straight layered locks. Layers are incredibly flattering for all face shapes, and they are especially good for fine or thin hair as they add extra volume and dimension. If you don’t mind coloring your hair, you could take inspiration from Keith and add some high-and low-lights for a more vibrant hair color. Ask your stylist to pick colors that complement your natural hair color for best results.
45. Garrett Hedlund Long Hairstyle: Long, tousled waves
Actor Garrett Hedlund sports a long hairstyle featuring tousled waves and an extremely long fringe. This boyish hairstyle is full of charm, and it’s very popular with the ladies. Recreate this hairstyle with soft hair styling wax or gel (the non-shiny / non-wet kind) and a wide-toothed comb. If you need to tidy up your look for a formal event, simply slick your hair back completely – easy!
46. Brad Pitt Long Hairstyle: Rocker hairstyle with layers
Movie star Brad Pitt looks distinguished and dapper with his rocker hairstyle and textured layers of hair. His shoulder-length blonde locks are complimented by a shaggy circle beard and well-groomed sideburns that give his look an old-school feel. To keep your hair healthy when growing it out, it’s important to lead a healthy lifestyle. Smoking can stunt hair growth, so consider cutting down or quitting if you’re serious about growing your hair out. Include hair-healthy food in your diet (high in protein and good fats – nuts, oily fish, avocado) and exercise regularly to boost blood supply to your hair follicles. Finally, invest in nutrient rich hair care products that will keep your scalp and hair extra healthy.
47. Matthew Gray Gubler Long Hairstyle: Wavy with natural texture
Actor and director Matthew Gray Gubler pulls off the grunge look with long, wavy locks and a scruffy beard. The length of his hair is perfect as it accentuates his strong jawline, and his beard further adds to his masculine look. The key to this look is keeping it simple – skip the styling products and embrace your hair’s natural texture. Wash and condition hair, towel dry it carefully (“blot” hair rather than rubbing vigorously, as drying hair roughly can damage the hair follicle), and blow dry on low heat of let your hair dry naturally. Create a side parting for a modern look, and groom your beard and eyebrows for a clean and handsome final look.
48. Rupert Grint Long Hairstyle: Long with shaggy bangs
English actor Rupert Grint sports a long hairstyle with thick, shaggy bangs. This hairstyle is popular among teenage boys, as it is alternative and flattering for most face shapes. Ask your stylist to cut your hair so that pieces cover your ears, and your bangs skim your eyes. Long bangs are high maintenance, as you need to trim every two weeks or so to keep hair out of your eyes. If you’re not keen on frequent trips to the hair salon, find a YouTube video that shows you how to trim your own bangs. Alternatively, you could grow them out, and style them to the side. The choice is yours.
49. Harry Styles Long Hairstyle: Thick and curly
One Direction singer Harry Styles sports his signature thick head of curls with a side swept fringe. Curls can be incredibly sexy, as long as you style them correctly. Heat styling can damage curly hair, so avoid straightening or blow drying your hair excessively. Invest in silicone-free hair care products made especially for curly hair, and buy a brush that’s designed for curly hair. It may be tempting to cut your hair short if the curls are hard to style, but with the right equipment, products, and a bit of patience, you can rock your natural curls.
50. Charlie Hunnam Long Hairstyle: Simple blonde man bob
English actor and screenwriter Charlie Hunnam sports a simple blonde “man bob” that he’s tucked behind his ears. This hairstyle is great for thin hair, as it keeps hair at one length, and it’s easy to style. Wear your hair in a side parting for a modern look, and keep your hair combed to avoid fuzz.
