Long hairstyles for men are not something new. Once upon a time this was common for men and almost everyone – from ancient heroes, warriors, medieval knights, and nobles of the 18th century to pirates and criminals – wore their hair long. Time changed and the symbol of masculinity changed to short haircuts and long manes were considered to be improper, rebellious and utterly inappropriate. Luckily, fashion follows a circle and men’s long hair is no longer claimed as indecent and we see many celebrities, musicians, athletes and actors wearing their hair in a variety of ways.

Long hairstyles for men – how to choose the right length?
Why do some men prefer to wear long hair? A good reason for choosing this hairstyle is the aristocratic look that it gives, on the other hand this haircut is still more or less connected with warriors (which explains the huge popularity of Vikings’ hairstyles) and at the same time this is a unique opportunity for men to express their character and individuality. Creative people also prefer long hair and we have seen many actors, musicians and artists wear it casually, even on the red carpet. Long hairstyles for men differ in length but undoubtedly, it looks incredibly attractive and sexy to many women.

Long hairstyles for men come in almost the same variety as women’s ones. Symmetrical and asymmetrical men’s haircuts, cascading haircuts which give hair volume and make it more vivid are among the most popular choices for men.
Shoulder length haircuts are hugely popular as well and this almost untidy appearance is the perfect choice for men who do not want any fuss in styling their hair. Shampoo and conditioner are enough to keep your hair soft and easily laid.
Undercuts, shaved sides with side-swept hair, braids, knot and buns are also a popular hairstyle for men with long hair, but they have nothing to do with the neat hairdos of women. On the contrary, men’s version is much more practical based on the simple need to remove hair from the face.
