Long hair, which was once considered unmanly and irregular, is no longer the same. It gives a rebellious and mysterious look to the men. For example, look to Game of Thrones and Orphan Black actor Michiel Huisman, who’s made a name for himself playing manly dudes with, well, manly long hair.
This isn’t the first time long hair has been popular on men. In the early ’90s, all the skater boys and surfer dudes were growing extralong locks — remember the “MMMBop” days and Hanson. The long hairstyle makes any action role Tom Cruise takes on 10 times much better. Somehow riding a motorcycle is just sexier with strands blowing in the wind. And you definitely can’t even imagine Chris Hemsworth without long hair, he will forever be Thor. Or even look at Keanu Reeves, dude is supersexy with his mens long hairstyle.
If you opt to keep your hair long, you will need a lot of patience. The transitional period is the most difficult because you cannot sweep it behind your ears. During this period, the hairstyle feels and looks clumsy. It takes a lot of courage and determination for a man to keep long hair. Men with long hair attract admiration from women as well as other men. They are associated with a rebellious character that is unwilling to conform to societal norms.
Tips to get mens long hairstyle:
- Find a skilled stylist who knows how to cut long men’s hair. Your stylist should be able to remove bulk or add volume as needed as well as recommend appropriate hair products and styling tips.
- Many men grow out their hair later in life. Shampoo is familiar, but conditioner can be a mystery to the newly long-locked. Conditioner makes it easier to brush long hair.
- Remember to get long hair trimmed regularly, to avoid unsightly frizz.
Long hair is not just for the young, long neat hair also looks sophisticated on grown men as well.
There is nothing that turns people off so much than a greasy head so always use warm water and shampoo to wash your hair. If you are not great on hygiene then forget about long hairstyles for men.
If Brad Pitt is doing it, it’s definitely cool!
