Red carpet stars like Jared Leto, Friday Night Lights era Taylor Kitsch, and Brad Pitt have all helped to make long hair for guys an increasingly popular men's hair trend. For anyone who has been toying with the idea of letting their hair grow out, now is the perfect time!
With some impressive celebrity backing, more than a few runway appearances and the generally satisfying swishiness to consider, it's hard not to want to take this look for a test drive.
A golden opportunity...
If you like to style your hair but feel you're running out of options with a shorter cut, a longer look will create a lot of fresh styling options. The extra length will give you plenty of room to experiment, allowing you to find your new favorite style. Think beach hair, man buns, unkempt textures, tousled looks, ponytails... the possibilities are pretty much endless.
Another thing to bear in mind is just how good long hair can look. The aforementioned celebrity inspiration are all, to put it bluntly, hot stuff, and they know how to choose a hairstyle to prove it. So, if they can pull it off, why can't you?
How to style
For long hair, a mussed, slightly rugged look is a great option. To do this, you can slick your hair back using a comb and some Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Hyper Fix Putty and then ruffle with your fingers. Alternatively, work a little TXT IT Deconstructing Gum through the lengths of your hair for a slightly unkempt, bed hair look. FYI, these styles look great with a little 10-day stubble.
