Long and straight hairstyles have been a popular go-to style for many men, especially in the recent past. This look is easy to achieve, shows off texture and character, and looks great on almost anyone! Straighter hair gives way to a variety of hairstyles, from a laid back, shaggy look to an edgier, more sculpted look. The best part about men with long, straight hair is that there are a multitude of options available when it comes to styling and creativity.
The classic, laid back, straight hair look is one of the most versatile looks available. It requires a casual length that falls anywhere from the shoulders down to just past the chin. This length offers a multitude of styling possibilities, allowing you to either let it hang or to style it into a more modern look. To style this look into a slightly more put-together ‘do, try adding a bit of gel or pomade and running it through the hair.
The Brushed Up
The brushed up look is perfect for men who wish to add an edgier, modern look to their straight hair. For this style, the hair is brushed up and towards the front of the face, allowing you to show off some much-needed texture. In order to achieve the brushed up look, use a light or medium hold gel or pomade and work it through the hair while brushing. Make sure to brush in an upward direction and you’ll be able to achieve the perfect brushed up look that is sure to turn some heads.
For a more playful yet slightly more modern look, try the half up. This look features a section of hair in the front being pulled back and fastened with a bobby pin or a small clip. Don’t worry about getting a precise part line as this look is meant to be more wearable and relaxed. Create a more smooth and sleek finish by using a small amount of pomade or styling cream.
Bangs are a great way to update your look and add a modern touch to long, straight hair. This versatile style can be worn forward or swept to the side. For a wispier look, try using a light-hold mousse and blow dry the bangs out towards the face. If you’re going for a more sculpted look, add a bit of gel of pomade to the bangs and use the blow dryer to shape them into place. No matter the style you decide to go with, this look is sure to be a show-stopper.
The Man Bun
For those of us who have enough hair to put into a bun, try out the man bun. This look has been seen on celebrities and models alike and is an easy way to add an edgy and put-together look. To style the man bun, first let your hair air dry or even let it air dry overnight if you’re in a rush. Make sure the hair is completely dry before you attempt styling it into the man bun. Create a mid or high ponytail and fasten it with a hair tie and you’ve got yourself the perfect man
