Like all beauty trends, popular hairstyles for men have shifted over the years and it’s more common than ever to see your favorite actors, athletes and your friends rocking long, flowing hair. If you’ve been thinking about growing your hair out, consider this your sign to do so. We’ve rounded up some long hair inspo from Instagram to get you started. Keep reading for six easy-to-maintain, stylish long hairstyles for men. 


For those who want a relatively low-maintenance long hairstyle, locs are a great option. The key is learning how to properly care for them, which includes regularly removing excess oil and fine-tuning your scalp-care routine.

Super Long and Straight

When your hair is super long (past your shoulders), channel major ’60s vibes by parting your hair down the middle and wearing it straight. Keep it sleek and free of flyaways by using a frizz-fighting product like the Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Anti-Frizz Serum.

Tousled Bob

Tousled hair has an effortless, sexy feel to it, plus it’s super easy to achieve when your hair is around shoulder length. Create the look for yourself by using the Matrix Total Results Miss Mess Dry Finishing Spray.

Classic Bun

Whether you’re relaxing with friends or attending a special event, a versatile  bun or topknot is simple to execute and will never go out of style.


You may think the longer your hair is, the more difficult it is to maintain your curls, but Matrix Global Brand Ambassador Brenton Kane Diallo proves that’s not the case — as long as you use the right products. He recommends the Matrix Total Results A Curl Can Dream Light Hold Gel to define and moisturize curls so your natural hair texture can shine.

Modern Mullet

If you’re just starting to dabble with longer styles, try the modern mullet. It incorporates both long and short aspects into the finished look. Los Angeles-based hairstylist Shadia Rezk brings the style into the present by keeping the sides tapered and the longer sections texturized.
