13/71
The Push Up Hairstyle

The Push Up Hairstyle

While this hairstyle worn by Zac Efron isn’t as long as some of the others on this list, it still has a decent amount of length to it. A style like this works best if you have thick, straight hair. The sideburns and neck are neatly trimmed, while the bangs are left alone.

The sides are cut to a shorter length, while the top of the hair stays. With some matte molding cream, you can push the bangs up in a slightly messy way, creating this flexible style. A style like this is great for casual and formal events, as well as sports and athletic activities.

This eye-catching combination pairs a rugged beard with a long, sweeping hairstyle. Despite the length, this is a fairly versatile look, and you can experiment with different beard and hair lengths.

15/71
Knot Why Not
@lanedorsey

Knot? Why Not

The top knot may not be the most common men’s hairstyle anymore, but it’s still a great option for guys with long hair. This variation only ties up some of the hair, so the knot is used as a stylistic touch instead of a way to tidy up.

16/71
Elegant Layers

Elegant Layers

It’s hard to go wrong with a layered hairstyle, and that’s especially true for longer styles. Here, the layers create lots of motion to draw the eye and add depth.

Top Knot or Dope Bun
@eddie_rtb

Top Knot or Dope Bun

The “wings” look has been around for decades. Its name derives from the wings that long hair tends to create, but you can accentuate these wings by keeping the top of the hair less voluminous and more close-cropped.

The Stylishly Messy Hairstyle

Ashton Kutcher lets it all hang loose in this stylish cut. A very famous actor who is widely regarded as being a fashionable man, Kutcher is a great person to model one’s hair after.

In order to achieve this specific look, one would have to let their hair grow out substantially, let it grow wild down by the neck, and brush it down. Some styling gel or pomade would be used to help keep it in place during a windy day, or while engaging in athletic activities.

The look is very approachable, and with a smile and some confidence, the look can also be pulled off in a professional setting. A timeless style, this look can last you a long time.

Freely Slicked Back with Faded Sides Scaled

Another trendy way to style long hair is to grow it long and slick it back with a slight puff. Using little product will be just enough to style it and will help hair to flow naturally. The sides are undercut faded with the top having a finger-combed pattern. Can it be any better?

Alessandro’s Semi Waved Long Hair

Alessandro's Semi Wavy Long Hair

Having long hair comes with the responsibility of maintaining it. This is a prime one with semi curls and subtle dye all along. The length is the protagonist here with hanging all the way to the chest. This is a very versatile length as one can bun it up or tie it with a knot.

33/71
Curled Top with Frizzy Ends

Curled Top with Frizzy Ends

Wavy hair comes with its perks and this for sure is a positive one. Wavy hair gets more and more curlier with the length. This one in particular has a subtle side part that defines the top, sides, and back quite vividly. The loose ends give a very frizzy look and add that formal flair to it.

34/71
Reinout Scholten’s Layered Crop

@andreamelchiorre1

Looking for a longer style with a bit of volume? Look no further. This side-swept haircut features a swooping tuft of hair at the front that adds a good amount of volume. It’s the cherry on top of this extremely flowy style.

36/71
Wavy Hair Touching Shoulder
@lanedorsey

Wavy Hair Touching Shoulder

I do find it fancy when there is a widow’s peak with long strands, and when we say these are real long. Plus the semi-curls towards the end are a real puncher. Moreover, the thin silky hair extends straight, and rusty brown dye makes it all very charismatic. The beard, in the end, balances everything.

37/71
Wannabe Shaggy Curls
DeanDrobot / Shutterstock.com

Wannabe Shaggy Curls

Not your usual curls because usually, they tend to have a thicker texture and with a stranded look. The thin texture with longer curls is what makes this special, although it looks not that long but the curls are usually longer than they seem. Moreover, the sides are tapered to keep the volume intact.

38/71
Ben Flajnik’s Flow Haircut
bradcam / Shutterstock.com

Ben Flajnik's Flow Haircut

Mid-Part with thin long strands on both sides, John Wick is that you? Oh no, that is Keanu Reeves. Jokes aside, the thin texture has a straight strand look with ends being semi curled. Plus the thin texture with added texture makes it perfect. Plus the almost stubble beard gives this an almost clean look.

39/71
Golden Hour And Blonde Hair
@nigel_vanderhorst

Golden Hour And Blonde Hair

Is that a surfer’s dream or what? Looks perfectly god to me, that long hair with a silky thin texture. That added with a loose quiff on top and adding a slight side sweep makes it a perfect style statement. Next up, that balancing beard makes it a perfect one to make up for long hair.

40/71
Ear Tucked Long Wavy Hair
@ben_slade

Ear Tucked Long Wavy Hair

This is what thick hair strands with a subtle side part do to the longer shoulder-length hair. Moreover, it is not straight and that fuzzy texture adds an extra layer of girth and makes it look all wavy.

41/71
Long Waves and ‘Tache
@kilianmaddison

Long Waves and 'Tache

This one traces from the history and feels more of a retro style with that subtle side sweep and a fuzzy cloudy texture. The next thing that makes this one special one is the mustache and chin beard. Plus, the semi curled strands increase the volume making it a wholesome style.

42/71
Curled Long Hair with Beard
@ dennis.mero

Curled Long Hair with Beard

Long hair is always something that one has to maintain but wait until you get curls, it gets slightly better! Having natural curls meaning less maintaining it but more style like here it looks like just pushing it back and letting it do its thing is the way to go.

43/71
Old School Flow
@jodytaylorhair

Old School Flow

This one is not your everyday style that one can find anywhere. This is a blend of curtain cut with a bowl cut and not to forget the thin hair texture makes it all work fine. That being said, the strands have to straight at all times for this style to pop exactly shown.

44/71
Matt Lanter’s Medium Hairstyle
s_bukley / Shutterstock.com

The Drop Down Hairstyle

This is an incredibly stylish hairstyle that will look great on most guys. This style screams approachable, and with some confidence, can be pulled off for any occasion. While the hair is longer, this look can be worn during any time of the year.

The hairstyle is on the messy side, but also has a professional look to it. With some textured styling cream, you have the flexibility to make this look your own.

You can push it all down and shake your head for a natural, wild look, or you could keep things more neat and professional. It’s up to you!

45/71
Dry Textured Neck Length
@ bib_zi

Dry Textured Neck Length

Dry texture by blow-drying has this effect where it looks all rough and matte finished. The length however plays an important role here with controllably along making all the difference. Thin hair texture and high density make this side sweep look pretty.

46/71
Maintained Long Hair Is a Boon
@j5reyes

Maintained Long Hair Is a Boon

Anyone can have long hair as it requires to let it grow but maintaining it is some work. Here the temple is subtly undercut to make it look a tad stylish with the top being pushed back for a man bun. The beard blend makes it one step more attractive.

47/71
Less Maintenance Mid Part
@jasonheightman

Less Maintenance Mid Part

Mid Parts are fun, one can experiment with them with short hair and long like this, even longer if one wants to. The length is nothing out of this world but that makes this style very much in control. The mustache and chin beard perfectly complement this.

48/71
Layered Long Hair with Mullet
@mulletdragon

Layered Long Hair with Mullet

Who said long hair has to be all straight and tied up, sometimes it can be set free like this allowing it to take its own course. Here the top, sides, and back are long with a mullet making it fancy. That’s not even it, the three-shade dye is just a perfect touch to it.

49/71
Rugged Golden hour Hair
@ theclassmenn

Rugged Golden hour Hair

This is a very rugged one with that cheeky rough texture. The hair is particularly very long so that the knot can be dense and have a more than two-fold look. However, the dye takes way the prize as it adds that earthy brown look to it. The beard balances the volume and makes it a wholesome look.

50/71
Volumized Long Straight Hair
@ tombusson

Volumized Long Straight Hair

Thick hair is always in trend especially with this pushed back. The slicked-back feel to it makes it so much more fun and the beard balances the face pretty well. The wholesome look without and part makes it fun but make no mistake the sides are tapered in a way that is subtle.

51/71
Rough Textured Long Hair
@ tombusson

Rough Textured Long Hair

Rough thick hair when pushed back completely makes so much sense. Plus it is one of those looks that go well on all occasions, be it formal or casual, it is one size fits all. The best part is the beard is quite thick which holds the weight in the lower face makes it look all balanced.

52/71
Mid Part with Mustache It Is
@finn.brock

Mid Part with Mustache It Is

The classy retro look of the hipsters, especially with that slim mustache but a stubble beard that makes that mustache look all dashing. That being said, the top is thin-haired and mid part. The goatee makes this look very classy and adds to the look.

53/71
Not Your Usual Long Hair Top
@travisanthonyhair

Not Your Usual Long Hair Top

High volume is very common but this one is a good mixture between longer length and high volume altogether. The tossed look makes it completely casual yet one can use some product to make it look formal.

54/71
Semi Curled Top with Subtle Mid Part
@iisakkinummi

Semi Curled Top with Subtle Mid Part

Shags are not that common but this one feels slightly special. The semi curl makes it very cool with the thin strands is what makes the difference. The very slight taper for the sides is just to make it look balanced.

55/71
Side Swerved Thin Top
@j5reyes

Side Swerved Thin Top

Thin hair can do wonders and this is a prime example. The side swerve with combed pattern texture makes it so much fun. The sides however are a different story with the taper with temple fade into beard makes it fun.

56/71
Long Curled Top with Shag Style
@nickbarford

Long Curled Top with Shag Style

Not all long hairstyles have to be straight long, some can be wavy or curled as much as this one. This one here is tapered on the sides just as much as needed with the top being all shagged for thick volume.

57/71
Long Mid Part with Sides Tapered
@scissorandbone

Long Mid Part with Sides Tapered

Long hairstyles sometimes come in different shapes, sizes and forms. This one right here is a classic mid-part with the top being thick-haired. That being said the sides are slightly tapered to make it look all controlled.

58/71
Long Hair Pompadour, Check
@alternativebarberingco

Long Hair Pompadour, Check

Long hair pompadour is very unusual to spot but when done right they pop real good. The top is frizzy slightly but still quite brushed up with sides being pushed back and gelled for them to stay there. That subtle dye really does a great job of making it one step cooler.

59/71
Tapered Yet Pushed Back
@couragenobleuk

Tapered Yet Pushed Back

Although the hair texture is quite thin, the taper helps in reducing unnecessary volume, and then it is pushed all the way back like a pompadoured slicked back for maximum style with long hair, also, don’t forget how beard anchors the look.

60/71
Undercut on Sides and Dye on Top
@nickbarford

Undercut on Sides and Dye on Top

Who doesn’t like a cheeky top-notch top knot? Plus the knot here is tried with a golden dye to make it stand out. That being said, the sides are undercut with a slight beard makes it quite playful of a look.

61/71
Pushed Back Side Brush Up
@travisanthonyhair

Pushed Back Side Brush Up

How do we not admire this gorgeous look, with so many elements it is one of the versatile styles out there. The pushed back to brush up makes those long hair come in full glory whereas a subtle side part brings all the fun!

62/71
Semi Curled Ends with Silver Dye
@ jackgreystone

Semi Curled Ends with Silver Dye

Is this the optimal surfer style with semi curls towards the ends and straight texture on the top. The top is pushed back with a slight puff to give it more life.

63/71
Long Hair plus Braid plus Panache
@nigel_vanderhorst

Long Hair plus Braid plus Panache

There’s simplicity and then there is classy, this one stands right in between both. The knot shows the simplicity but the single braid is the classy part. The beard balances the face so well and holds volume quite well.

64/71
Thin Curly Shag
@ renjworld

Thin Curly Shag

Curly hair can be very long and you won’t notice a thing as it curls and the length is collected. The thin hair makes this style so much exotic with a lot of volumes and yet the mid part makes it perfectly stylish.

65/71
Ginger Pushed Back Top with Layered Sides
@ the_bloody_butcher

Ginger Pushed Back Top with Layered Sides

Thick hair needs some Maintainance but once done right it reaps such winders. The sides are layered with slight taper but the top is crazy good with straight fluff and push back, no fancy jazz.

66/71
Brushed Up Thin Rough Hair
@ marcovfialho

Brushed Up Thin Rough Hair

Not all long hairstyles are pushed back and this one is an example. The brush-up texture here is quite unique with a slightly curled strand that makes it so much fun. There is slight layering here makes the top separate from the sides.

67/71
Michael Jackson Curly Strand
@franckprovostaus

Michael Jackson Curly Strand

Curly texture almost instantly bumps up the hair density because of its collective nature and as we see here the thick strands make up a good shag. Plus the longer strands fall off dashingly on the forehead and on the sides.

68/71
Classy Tied Bun
Roman Samborskyi/ Shutterstock.com

Classy Tied Bun

Who doesn’t like long tied hair and some neat suit? Sure we all do, but this long hair is on the thinner side with a cheeky shiny blonde dye to go with it. The neat tapered beard comes to the rescue when we talk about balancing the face quite right.

69/71
Long Curled Top with French Crop
@aaron_kiely_hair

Long Curled Top with French Crop

Not long hair every time is the same with straight hair strands and shoulder length. Sometimes it is curled yet quite long. The top is almost a shag but it takes a turn for French Crop pretty quick. The curls here are rusty with blonde shade.

70/71
Long Middle Parted Hair with Layers
@hayden_cassidy

Long Middle Parted Hair with Layers

The classic OG long hair is here with layers for keeping the top long and short sides. The dye work here is quite subtle but does the job well. The beard here is quite fancy with chin and mustache so that it is minimal and chill.

71/71
Dense Curled Shag with Mustache
@collinanthonyhair

Dense Curled Shag with Mustache

Long hair doesn’t have to be free falling. The top to sides ratio is almost equal where the top is just a tad longer than the sides. The density is what plays a major role in this look with slight trimming handling the situation.
