Long hairstyles for men have been a symbol of a signature lifestyle. Popular with skateboarders and surfers, men’s long haircuts have been creeping into mainstream media and can now be seen by professionals, actors, and models. Long hair may take a little more time in the morning to style, but the artistic touch it adds to your personal style is well worth it. And let’s face it, long hair for men is in style nowadays.
Before your next haircut, check out these photos of the most popular long haircuts and long hairstyles for men.
#1: Low-Maintenance Surfer Look for Long Hair
This lengthy hairstyle has texture and volume that shows natural hair at its best! I only used one product for this look, which is Sirens Ibiza Sea Salt Spray. I use this product for adding texture and volume. It can be used before and after blowdrying and is great for men with textured hair. I recommend this style for guys with waves or curls for a low-maintenance surfer look. It’s perfect for guys with good strong jawlines to add masculinity to longer hair.
#2: Gents’ Professional Yet Relaxed Long Hairstyle
It’s the perfect style for medium to long hair because it’s professional yet relaxed. The shape and the texture throughout the hair look great. They allow the hair to fall into place with little effort, which is a must for most men.
Style your hair with Aveda Men’s Performance Grooming Cream. It’s a product that is not only lightweight but also water-based. This means it doesn’t feel like you have too much product in the hair. We finished it with Aveda Texture Tonic to enhance the natural wave.
#3: Wearable Rocker Shag on Guys’ Long Hair
A rocker shag for men’s long hair has all the movement and texture the cut needs. For long men’s hairstyles, I used a volumizer product/root lifter that was blowdried into the hair, then used a light spray wax. His hair is a finer texture, so I needed something light and airy for styling. If you have medium to coarse hair, you could use a styling wax or paste to finish, as well as a straightening iron for even more definition if needed.
#4: Long Hair with Disconnected Part
Here’s a haircut that’s perfect for long-haired men looking for something bold and modern. The disconnected undercut paired with long hair definitely does the trick.
#5: Long-Length Dreadlocks
Long length dreadlocks can be pulled into a man bun or given a half up half down style. A simple ponytail or braid are also excellent options for added variety.
#6: Men’s Ponytail for Long Hair
If you’re a man looking for a new way to wear your long hair try a traditional ponytail. Not just for ladies anymore, this simple and classic style will show of your length while keeping it out of your face.
#7: The Man Bun for Lengthy Hair
The Man Bun for lengthy hair is a great way to remain stylish and professional with longer locks. There are many variations to this look depending on how high or low you tie back your hair.
#8: Long Hairstyle with Braids
Men with long hair are breaking the mold with braided hairstyles. With proper care many men can make this style last a week or more, keeping your long locks tangle free.
#9: Long Wavy Hair with Skin Fade Undercut
The undercut created a great contrast with thick, full long locks styled at the top. For this, tousled ends sealed the polished look.
#10: Long Brushed Back Hair with High Fade
Take your long mane down a notch with this look. This pompadour fade cut is one of those haircuts for men that looks brilliant with a stylish short beard! Keep your sides neat for more contrast.

#11: Long Hair with Disconnected Waves
This long-haired man has naturally wavy hair and decided to add an awesome one-sided undercut. The contrast of the wavy style and shaved side really pops.
#12: Long Classic Men’s Style
One could describe this curly long haircut for men as timeless and classic.
#13: Parted Long Straight Hair for Guys
This is modern rocker long hair. For any guy considering growing their hair out long, I would advise staying with it. There will be many times you’ll get frustrated and feel like cutting it off, but it will be worth it. Invest in regular trims to keep it strong, and don’t be cheap regarding shampoo and conditioner.
Longer hair gets weaker, so get a shampoo with a protein base or repair any damage and a light moisturizing conditioner to give it suppleness and shine. The layer in this style is in the interior of the haircut, giving it movement and texture without looking like a retro 80’s vibe.
#14: Long Curly Hair for Men
Long curly hair for men can be beachy and relaxed!
Created by stylist Samantha Fife of Las Vegas, these natural curls are so eye-catching, considering the beautiful texture. The coolest part about it is how well it works with men’s facial features, and the way they can really rock and embrace their natural curl!
According to Fife, “The best advice I can give to all men with long curly hair is lots of moisture! For this look, we used Paul Mitchell’s spring-loaded shampoo and conditioner to fight frizz and help define those locks. We styled the twirls on damp hair.”
#15: Long Top Old School Style
An old-school hairstyle with shorter sides and a longer top made into a taper haircut men love. It’s best for guys with hair that’s smooth or wavy. The great thing about this cut is that it works well with any face shape, too.
This long hairstyle can be styled using several shapes of combs and with various types of ointments. To recreate this look, try the Reuzel Grooming Tonic. Apply on wet long locks and dry with a blow dryer, moving the hair back. You can also finish with Ruezel Matte Ointment or Reuzel Pink.
#16: Long Layered Cut for Gents
It’s an elevated, long layered haircut that Las Vegas-based stylist Rosie Rodriguez created. Subtle layers added texture to the shape of such a men’s hairstyle.
To prep a long layers cut like this, Rodriguez recommends CoteCHHair Hybrid styling foam and a drop of Quinoa Smoothing Oil. The styling foam is weightless and helps provide a smooth look with thermal protection while blowdrying with a round brush. The Quinoa Oil eliminates frizz and adds shine without weighing down the hair.
#17: Long and Sleek Mob Hairstyle
Almost a men’s bob (mob), this men’s long hairstyle was created by barber John D’Annibale of Brooklyn, NY.
“It has weight removal, but it’s also very textured and soft. No guy wants to grow his hair out or cut his very long hair shorter into a cut that looks like a mushroom or something out of a bad comedy scene,” D’Annibale explains.
The products that D’Annibale recommends for this look are lightweight texture styling creams, pastes if you have heavy hair or a nice pomade that you can work through it. D’Annibale adds, “No gels! You want the hair to stay soft which is why something lightweight is best. You still want a little hold though so you aren’t touching it and pulling it back all day. Tucking it behind the ears is best.”
He adds, “If you are losing your hair, guys, don’t grow it out. It will only make your longer strands look finer and thinner. Get a tight cut and move forward.”
#18: Wearable Naturally Long Curly Hair
These are soft, natural curls in a long, low-maintenance haircut by stylist Victor Paul of Costa Mesa, CA.
“My favorite thing about the long curly haircut is it’s an easy, wearable, and carefree look for all ages,” says Paul.
“Hairstyles for men with long hair like this are ideal for dudes who have curly textured hair that want to grow it out,” Paul emphasizes.
#19: Men’s Long 90s Grunge Hair
A lot of inspiration was taken from 90s grunge and the likes of Kurt Cobain with this look, but with a more wearable texture and a slightly more matte finish rather than the greasy 90s feel.
Barber Liam Paul Robinson of the UK states, “My favorite thing about this long straight hair for men is how easy it is to wear.”
The cut’s shape works well on both straight and curly hair types as the layers are kept long and very shattered. “Curls don’t go too wild as the layers aren’t too short, and on straight hair, the layers are helping to create movement,” Robinson adds.
#20: Long & Disheveled Hair
If you want to keep it simple, then this disheveled look is for you. Oregon-based hair designer Geino Äotsch loves this look because you shouldn’t have to think about how to style a messy rugged look into your hair!
“For this long mane, we used Byrd’s Salty Coconut Texturing Surf Spray and Rudy’s Clay Pomade,” Äotsch mentions.
Äotsch recommends this long hairstyle for a guy who isn’t ready to cut all their hair off but is definitely in need of a change. Äotsch notes, “This is a low-maintenance style that doesn’t require a lot of attention.”
#21: Tousled Long Layers for Guys
It’s a tousled long layered cut that complements the hair’s natural wavy texture. The layers and the weight of the cut look gorgeous with very little effort.
Based on stylist Marty Thomas of New York City, a great cut shouldn’t need a lot of product. “I used Redken Frizz Dismiss Rebel Tame to lay the cuticle down and fight frizz and humidity. I finished it with a small amount of American Crew Fiber on the ends to give texture, add body, and enhance shine,” Thomas notes.
Thomas also points out that it’s a unisex universal haircut. It can look amazing blown out and styled within an inch of its life but as seen here, but it looks equally as sexy straight right out of bed with a little product. It works best on a hair type with body and movement.
#22: Wavy Hairstyle on Men with Long Hair
A man’s long wavy hair is naturally edgy. The triangle shape created with the one-length cut is super cool and very on-trend!
With these long locks, stylist Jason Vieira of New York recommends a “no blow dry” curl cream to help define the curls/texture, combined with a sea salt spray at the roots to create some volume and a beachy texture.
Vieira adds, “I recommend this cut for the guy with curly/wavy hair who wants to be able to wake up and go without much styling effort, but yet still remain edgy.”
#23: Simply Grungy Style for Long-Haired Men
This hairstyle for long-haired men is simply grungy, made by a stylist from Tennessee, Michael Jay.
“I cut his long mane in a very organic way, taking out weight where needed and leaving only what needs to be left. When you give longer men’s hair too much construction, it starts to look like women’s hair,” states Jay.
He recommends this cut to any dude willing to try it! “It won’t work on really fine hair, though. There needs to be a medium to thick density. This man has really thick hair, so a lot of our time together is spent de-bulking,” Jay notes.
#24: The California Classic Cut on Long Blonde Hair
The California Classic long hairstyle men love is for that sexy beach dude!
Hairstylist Dani TyGr of Los Angeles says, “This soft layered haircut typically showcases long fringe with a deeper imperfect part. This cut is all about the texture. If the hair is left too heavy and bulky, it will leave your man looking totally outdated. It can be worn at different lengths from the length shown here to shoulder-length.”
Its appeal comes with the evolvement of gents with long hair. “We all remember the beloved man bun which quickly transcended to the most recent tightly barbered, highly groomed trend. What’s next for men’s haircuts is this much easier lived-in and effortless look that has actually been featured in men’s fashion for years,” TyGr explains.
Men with this long and textured cut should let their hair air dry or lightly diffuse after a good detoxing cleanse and a hydrating condition. After that, this style requires little to no product!
TyGr continues, “This hairstyle is best for a man that has some natural texture in his locks. If the hair is too straight or too curly, time in front of the mirror with a few products and maybe even a hot tool may be required to achieve the best results.”
#25: Shoulder-Length Long Curls
The best thing about these awesome long curls is that it’s undone with a bit of a Jon Snow vibe. “The loose waves are to able have more movement with the texturizing that was done, meanwhile the shape is still square to maintain a masculine aesthetic,” stylist Merideth Pedack of Bellingham, WA describes.
To create this cut, Pedack shaped it with a straight razor to add texture and remove weight. Pedack continues, “I finished it with Bumble and bumble Don’t Blow It Thick leave-in conditioner to give the waves some definition and not leave a heavy product feeling in the hair.”
#26: Johnny Depp-Inspired Long Side Part
A 90s Johnny Depp-inspired long hairstyle has a style that will last much longer as grows out organically! I love the Dark Oil to smooth the cuticle and add body. The fragrance of sandalwood and cedarwood is an added masculine bonus! I add the oil then scrunch dry using a diffuser. I’d always recommend this hairstyle for men with a good head of hair! It’s perfect for guys with an edgy style. And it’s ideal for an oval or square face shape, and would also work for men with curly hair!
#27: Long Textured Cut
The look is a long textured cut by stylist Michael Sponsel of Atlanta, GA. “My favorite thing about this cut is how effortless it is to maintain. The other thing I love about this look is the combination of hair and beard,” Sponsel states.
Sponsel always recommends a grooming spray with long hair. Then adds, “On this cut, I used Layrite Grooming Spray and Layrite Beard Oil. It has a light hold and adds texture to the hair. The beard oil has a light, fresh scent and adds softness and light hold to the beard for shaping.”
#28: Men’s Shaggy Long Hairstyle
It’s the long shaggy surfer look, cut by barber Jon Franklyn of Battle, Sussex. “I created it by putting some long layers in and feathering the side fringes into the mid-lengths and ends. What I love about this long hair style is that you can create movement and style with ease,” Franklyn explains.
Franklyn only uses MUK products and they can be found on Instagram @mukhaircareuk. Franklyn goes on, “For this style, I used Beach MUK which is a sea salt spray. I sprayed six to seven pumps into his hair and finger dried it on medium heat and medium speed, scrunching the ends to create bend and movement.”
#29: Relaxed But Groomed Long Hairstyle
Opt for the best long hairstyles for men that are relaxed but still groomed. “It’s a super versatile and low-maintenance style that uses the hair’s natural texture,” says UK-based stylist Emma Louise Piggott.
“You can wear it loose for a more casual look, or styled back tighter and more groomed for a more formal occasion. I love this look because it’s a welcome change from skin fades,” Piggott emphasizes.
#30: Brushed Back Hair with Long Beard
A longer, brushed-back haircut really compliments the beard by giving the man a cleaner and put-together look. The beard blowout is necessary because when beards are as long as this, they can sometimes look unkempt. This hairstyle by stylist Rachel Highfield of Dayton, OH proves that having a beard doesn’t necessarily mean you can’t look professional!
Highfield recommends this look on men who have a full head of hair and can grow a full beard! “It works best on men who have straight hair and can take a little extra time out of their day to style their hair and beard,” she notes.
#31: Long Individual Rope Twists
These are long individual rope twists for black guys. This braid style allows gents to have the freedom of wearing their locs down without being in the face.
Stylist Kimberly West of Atlanta says, “The product that I would recommend to recreate this look is called LocN Gel. LocN Gel is the best product that doesn’t leave the scalp itchy or dry and it leaves any style looking perfect for weeks. The best thing about it is that it does not contain any unwanted or harmful chemicals that most “other” brands have. LocN Gel is definitely my number one recommendation. Natural oils are also sprayed onto the hair to give the finishing look.”
West recommends these twists for dudes who are looking for something different, fun, and low-maintenance. Rope twists are very popular and well suited for those with mid-length to long locs. This style lasts a long time and once taken out, the hair will have a beautiful crinkle curl pattern!
#32: Long Blunt Cut With Texture
This lengthy style is a blunt cut with texture, created by stylist Yuki from Beverly Hills, CA.
“My favorite thing about these long hair styles for men is that it’s very easy to style. He can also put it up if he wants. I did a dry cut on him so I could see the natural flow of hair and work the details,” says Yuki.
This style will work for fine to medium hair types and any face shape. If a guy is looking for easy styling, opt for this cut.
#33: Long Undercut with Mid Fade
This is one of the edgier men’s long hairstyles you’ll see here. You can achieve a shaved look without actually having to buzz your hair off. The transitions in this are wonderful, still maintaining that punk rock look. Plus, it creates a thin hair illusion for guys with thicker strands.
