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.

Before your next haircut, check out these photos of the most popular long haircuts and long hairstyles for men.


#1: Long Classic Style

One could describe this curly long haircut for men as timeless and classic.

Tousled Long Layers for Guys

#2 Tousled Long Layers

Try this tousled long layered cut that complements the hair’s natural wavy texture. The cut’s layers and weight look gorgeous with very little effort. It can look amazing blown out and styled within an inch of its life but as seen here, but it looks equally as irresistible straight right out of bed with a little product. It works best on a hair type with body and movement.

#3: Parted Long Straight Hair

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. 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.

#4: Low-Maintenance Surfer Look

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.

#5: Side-Parted Wings Haircut

If you have a hard time keeping a neat, structured style due to your hair’s natural texture, consider getting a haircut with a side part and wings. By embracing your natural texture, this type of haircut allows you to simply ‘run your hands through your hair and go.’ For a change of pace, you can switch the hair part to either side. Lastly, for the best results, have your barber work with your hair’s texture. Don’t forget to ask about the most suitable texturizing product for your hair type.

#6: Long Shaggy Cut with Textured Bangs

Men find the long shaggy cut with textured fringe to be stylish and flexible. This haircut has long layers on top and textured front hair. It gives a new and different look. Guys with thick or wavy hair will love it. The long layers will show off your hair’s natural flow. Ask your hair stylist to use point cutting. This will give your hair texture and depth at the ends. Styling this haircut is easy. Put a small amount of hair cream or wax on your fingers. Then, mess up your hair for a cool and easy look.

#7: Textured Shaggy Cut

Many men with long hair choose the textured shaggy cut for a fresh and modern style. The textured shaggy cut gives your hair a relaxed look. It adds volume and movement to any hair type and face shape. It’s perfect for a casual style. Apply a small amount of cream or pomade to damp hair to style. Then, use your fingers to tousle and shape it.

#8: Wearable Rocker Shag

A rocker shag for men’s long hair has all the movement and texture the cut needs. 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.

#9: 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.

#12: 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.

#13: 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.

#14: 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.

#15: Long Layered Cut

Check out this elevated, long layered haircut with subtle layers that added texture to the shape of such a hairstyle. To prep long layers cut like this, I recommend 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.

#16: Long and Sleek Mob Hairstyle

Almost a men’s bob (mob), this hairstyle has weight removal, but it’s also very textured and soft. No guy wants to grow his hair out or cut his long hair shorter into a cut that looks like a mushroom or something out of a bad comedy scene.

Wearable Naturally Long Curly Hair for Men

#17: Wearable Naturally Long Curly Hair

These are soft, natural curls in a long, low-maintenance haircut. My favorite thing about the long curly haircut is it’s an easy, wearable, and carefree look for all ages.

#18: Long 90s Grunge Hair

A lot of inspiration was taken from the 90s grunge era. The hair has a more wearable texture and a slightly matte finish rather than the greasy 90s feel. My favorite thing about this long straight hair for men is how easy it is to wear. The cut’s shape works well on 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 help to create movement.

Long and Disheveled Hair for Men

#19: Long & Disheveled Hair

If you want to keep it simple, this disheveled look is for you. You shouldn’t have to think about how to style a messy rugged look into your hair! We used Byrd’s Salty Coconut Texturing Surf Spray and Rudy’s Clay Pomade for this long mane. I recommend this long hairstyle for a guy who isn’t ready to cut all their hair off but is definitely in need of a change. This is a low-maintenance style that doesn’t require a lot of attention.

#20: Long Wavy Hairstyle

The triangle shape created with the one-length cut is super cool and very on-trend! With these long locks, use 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. I recommend this cut for the guy with curly/wavy hair who wants to wake up and go without much styling effort but still remain edgy.

Simply Grungy Style for Long-Haired Men

#21: Simply Grungy Style

This hairstyle is simply grungy. I cut his long mane in a very organic way, taking out weight where needed and leaving only what needed to be left. When you give longer men’s hair too much construction, it looks like women’s hair. I recommend 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 thick hair, so a lot of our time together is spent de-bulking.

The California Classic Cut on Long Hair for Men

#22: The California Classic Cut on Long Blonde Hair

The California Classic long hairstyle men love is for that charming beach dude! 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.

Shoulder-Length Long Curls for Guys

#23: 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 can have more movement with the texturizing that was done. Meanwhile, the shape is still square to maintain a masculine aesthetic.

#24: 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 an edgy style. And it’s ideal for an oval or square face shape, and would also work for men with curly hair!

#25: Long Textured Cut

The look is a long textured cut is how effortless it is to maintain. The other thing I love about this look is the combination of hair and beard. I always recommend a grooming spray for long hair. 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.

#26: Shaggy Long Hairstyle

Here’s a long shaggy surfer look. I created it by putting some long layers and feathering the side fringes into the mid-lengths and ends. I love this long hairstyle because you can easily create movement and style. Only use MUK products. I used Beach MUK, a sea salt spray, for this style. I sprayed 6 to 7 pumps into his hair and finger-dried it on medium heat and speed, scrunching the ends to create bend and movement.

Long Individual Rope Twists

#27: Long Individual Rope Twists

These are long individual rope twists for black guys. This braid style allows gents to wear their locs down without being in the face. The product 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 leaves any style looking perfect for weeks. The best thing about it is that it contains no unwanted or harmful chemicals that most “other” brands have. LocN Gel is my number one recommendation. Natural oils are also sprayed onto the hair to give it a finishing look.

Long Blunt Cut With Texture for Guys

#28: Long Blunt Cut With Texture

This lengthy style is a blunt cut with texture. 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 to see the natural flow of hair and work the details. 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.

#29: 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.
