Selecting Hairstyles for Straight Hair

Those with straight hair may find it difficult to find the right hairstyle. Selecting the right one will depend on the length of the hair each man has and the look he is trying to achieve. There are actually many hairstyles to choose from. It just takes selecting the right hairstyles for straight hair that work for you.

Slicked Back

You can easily slick back your hair when it’s straight, no matter what length it is. The longer though, the better, as it will allow the hair to remain back easier. A bit of styling and mousse or gel is necessary for this hairstyle to ensure it stays slicked back all day long. Otherwise some of the hair may fall forward, creating a completely different look.

Pushed Forward and Faded

One option is to push the hair forward and trim around so it resembles a bowl cut, only it will be around the forehead rather than the ears. The next step is to use the fading technique throughout the back and sides, leaving short hair underneath, and even shorter hair toward the back of the neck. It leaves the hair on top looking straight and sleek.

Faux Hawk

The faux hawk is a great choice if you have straight hair that you can’t seem to find a style for. Your can simply be pushed up and to the center to stand up like a mohawk, while the hair on the sides remains the same. You can also choose to shave the sides, or at least fade them out, for a different option.

Middle Part With Hair at the Sides

Longer hair can make for faster styling if you have a simple style in mind. A middle part with your straight hair falling to either side is an easy hairstyle to manage. Just a quick brush-through can get your hair into shape.

Slicked Back With a Buzz

The slicked back look works well for men with straight hair. While the previously mentioned slick back style left the sides of the head untouched, this option uses a buzz cut to help achieve an alternative look.
