14 Barber-Approved Long Hairstyles For Men



The flow - AKA the hairstyle for the hockey player, high school boy, and struggling musician. On a good day, it's clean, but on a normal day, it's straggly, unstyled, and flat-to-the-head. Okay... Now get that image out of your mind. The men's hairstyle that was once beloved by the 17-year-old jock or the dad going through a midlife crisis is now one of the hottest trends in men's hair - when it's worn the right way, of course.

While rocking long hair may look effortless, it can actually one of the more difficult hairstyles to maintain. We're here to help you be strategic about it, sharing with you a breakdown of products we love, recommended hair types and hair shapes for each look, and the styling tips you'll need to master it. But before you decide to throw caution (and barber visits) to the wind while you're growing your hair out, make sure you're headed in the right direction with one of these barber-approved long hairstyles for men.

This blog post contains some of those fantastic products, and we may receive a small monetary compensation - at no extra cost to you - if you decide to check out these products we love.

Classic Man Bun And Beard

Recommended for medium to thick hair and a diamond, square, or rectangle face shape.

Recommended Product: Redken Go Clean Daily Care Moisturizing Shampoo

Everyone thought the man bun would be a quick fad, but it's on its way to becoming a timeless long men's hairstyle. While it requires little effort to replicate, pulling hair back into a ponytail or bun can cause damage to your strands, so be sure to use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner.

Long Bowl Cut

Recommended for thick hair and a triangle face shape.

 

Recommended Product: Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shaping Cream

What some call the "mushroom cut" has made its way back in style in 2019. It's bold, spunky, and sexy, but it's only a style we recommend for those with thick hair.

 

Modern Tellum Haircut

Recommended for medium to thick hair and an oval, diamond, or square face shape. 

Recommended Product: Redken for Men Dishevel Fiber Cream

Tellum? Tell 'em what? Well, if you've ever seen this Chris Lane-inspired 'do, it looks like a bit of a reverse mullet...(and what's mullet spelled backwards? There ya go!)

Wavy Flow and Beard

Recommended for medium to thick hair and any face shape. 

Recommended Product: Smooth Viking Hydrating Fiber Cream

If you were blessed with thick, wavy locks, you can surely pull off this look. Pick your favorite fiber (for this style, ours is from Smooth Viking), and style damp hair with a blow dryer.

Quiff and Shaved Sides

Recommended for medium to thick hair and any face shape. 

 

Recommended Product: Pacinos Matte

If you want to try a long hairstyle for men but are reluctant to grow it all out, try something like this.

Slicked Back Long Hairstyle and Undercut

Recommended for medium to thick hair and an oval, triangle, or diamond face shape. 

Recommended Product: TIGI Bed Head B for Men Matte Separation Workable Wax

This undercut requires a bit more maintenance than other long hairstyles for men, and by that we mean it goes from looking like sheer perfection when you walk out of the barber to an awkward mess when it starts to grow out.

Shoulder-Length Bob

Recommended for thick hair and a square or rectangle face shape. 

Recommended Product: R+Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste

There's something about that just-rolled-out-of-bed look that screams sexy and confident. The best part? All you have to do is run some product through it and let it air dry.

 

Spiky Long Hair with Shaved Sides and Beard

Recommended for thin, medium, or thick hair and any face shape.

Recommended Product: Baxter of California Clay Pomade

Letting your hair grow out on top while keeping it buzzed on the sides is a great way to test out how your strands look as they get longer.

Cropped Dreads

Recommended for medium to thick hair and any face shape.

Recommended Product: Total Body Black Earth Shampoo

Anyone else think this is a perfect length for dreads? It's sexy and fun but looks sharp and sophisticated at the same time.

Voluminous Chin-Length Haircut

Recommended for medium to thick hair and a square, rectangle, or oval face shape. 

Recommended Product: Verb Ghost Oil

You don't have to be Eric Decker to pull off this epic mane (although, it would be nice, wouldn't it?), but you do have to have been blessed with thick hair.
