For decades, society has strayed away from the once, uniform standard of beauty where men couldn’t have long hairstyles. With the ever-evolving and diverse world we live in, there are a plethora of long hairstyles for men to choose from. From playing into the Y2K trend with 2000s cornrows to a daring “Quiff,” there’s something out there for every guy, regardless of your preferred look. Whether you first decided to grow out your hair during the pandemic or you just want to change up your look altogether, men’s longer hairstyles are always a good idea.
If you’re putting off getting a haircut for as long as possible, opting for a longer hairstyle makes sense for many different reasons. For one, it requires less upkeep than a shorter style, which means fewer trips to the hair salon for touch-ups. It also allows for more styling opportunities when it comes to ways to wear it.

Long Hair Care For Men
Like with any hairstyle, some form of maintenance is needed to keep whatever look you’re going for, regardless of the length of your hair. As opposed to those with shorter hairstyles, the feat for men with longer hair is a bit different. While men with buzzcuts or fades can simply go for a routine haircut, men with long hair must go through a wash day process and daily styling. According to Michael Dueñas, celebrity hairstylist and founder of Veluer Creative, one of the best ways to ensure men have healthy, long hair is to keep their ends trimmed and lock in moisture.
“Long hair can look great on men, but the ends need to be healthy — this prevents tangles and your hair looking dried out,” Dueñas tells POPSUGAR. “Don’t use a two-in-one; use a separate shampoo and conditioner. Long hair needs more care and moisture — don’t skimp on the conditioner.”
Products For Long Hair For Men
Now that you know what it takes, here are a few of our favorite products that are essential for men with long hair. A great product is the Brickell Daily Strengthening Shampoo ($20). The brand formulated this natural and organic shampoo with wheat protein, amino acids, and an array of essential oils to restore thinning hair and promote healthy regrowth. Along with its shampoo, Brickell’s Men’s Revitalizing Hair Conditioner ($20) serves as a customer favorite, giving men thicker and healthier hair with shine.
Dueñas also suggests STMNT’s Classic Pomade ($25). “You will have the ultimate hold and perfect sheen,” he says. “You want to be able to run your fingers through long hair, but have it stay in place — this will 100 percent achieve that.”
