It’s a quick and easy hairstyle that will allow you to get out of the door in a matter of minutes. It gives you a unique look and makes you stand out from the crowd.

In this case, we highly recommend that you consult your stylist before styling your hair in a messy way. They can give you some ideas on how to style your hair.
Shoulder Length Side Part
Shoulder length hair is a great option for those who want to grow their hair long without going overboard.
With the current trend of disheveled hair, it is a good idea to choose a hairstyle that gives off a more formal vibe. This look adds a touch of maturity to an otherwise carefree vibe. Here, the hair is parted on the side and is styled to fall on the shoulders. The other section falls on the other shoulder and is tucked behind the ear. This look will work best for men with thick hair.
To pull off this look, start by applying some light hold product on your hair. Then, create a deep side part.

Man-bun refers to the particular placing of a bun on a male’s head. This look is taking over the world. Don’t believe us? Walk down the street and you are likely to see some men in man buns. Some celebrities even sported the look on the red carpet and awards ceremonies. Jake Gyllenhaal, Jason Momoa, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Jared Leto are just some of the celebrities we’ve seen rocking the man bun.
There is a wide range of ways to style the look. It can be worn low on the neck, high on the head or somewhere in between. To give it a unique look, you may also add shaved sides, low fade or an undercut.
The Man Tail

The ponytail is the go-to hairstyle for women when dealing with bad hair days. Not only does it provide an easy way to conceal frizzy, unruly locks, it is an easy style that can be pulled off in a matter of seconds. It also gets your hair off of your face, which is ideal when you’re working out. Basically, the man tail is the men’s variation of the ponytail. If you’re bored of wearing your hair down, just pull your hair up into a man tail.
The man tail is practical and convenient. But make sure not to wear your ponytails too tight or in the same position as it can cause headaches and traction alopecia. To keep from abusing the same hairs in the same way over and over, it is a good idea to vary up the location of your ponytail – low, high, side, crown.

Girls aren’t the only ones rocking long curly hair these days. In fact, men look equally as sexy in their messy, curly look.
If you are a curly-haired man, you may have toyed with the idea of growing out your hair. But you decided not to act on that idea considering that curly hair can be quite difficult to handle or tame. The good news is, having a kinky head of hair provides endless styling possibilities.
If you like fuss-free long hairstyles for men, then you can take the easy route and just let your natural curls grow out. Think Game of Thrones star Kit Harrington. Spritz sea salt spray onto your hair to hold the waves and curls in place without making them rigid. Also, get a trim whenever you feel like your hair is getting particularly frizzy or if it’s getting too long.
