Our Fave Long Hairstyles for Men with Thick Hair
1. Natural and voluminous
Let your long, thick hair down on your shoulders and revel in its natural glory. Wear it loose and style it with a blow dryer, or simply air dry it properly before you head into the office or a meeting.
Editor’s tip: Keep a cool head (quite literally!) by washing your thick hair with CLEAR Ice Cool Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo. Give your scalp a refreshing menthol sensation that can help make you feel fresh all day.
2. Layered thick hair
You can simply let your long, thick hair down if you want a fuss-free look. If you love wearing your hair this way, you can add some layers to help enhance your hair’s natural volume and bounce.
Editor’s Tip: Men’s scalp produces more sebum than women’s, that’s why men can be more prone to dandruff. Make sure to keep your hair clean and free from product residue by using CLEAR Deep Cleanse Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men.
3. Man bun
Of course, a list of hairstyles for long, thick hair isn’t complete without the man bun. You can easily whip up this hairstyle even when you’re in a hurry. It also goes well with any kind of outfit—whether a smart and dapper business suit or a street, casual get-up.
4. Man ponytail
You can also go for a simple man ponytail if you want to keep your hair off your face. It keeps your strands in place on a busy day so you don’t need to restyle it.
5. Man bun with fade haircut
Here’s a cool trick: When you combine a long hairstyle with a fade haircut, you can end up with an undercut-like hairstyle, too. It’s a unique ‘do that can help you stand out and create your signature style.
6. Thick brushed back hair
How about simply brushing your hair back? If you’re sporting a medium to long length, just apply some pomade or hair wax to brush back your hair for a smooth and polished look.
7. Modern quiff
Another hairstyle that you can try when you want to look smart and put together is the modern quiff. This simple hairstyle can make you look <i>presko</i> even on a hot and humid day.
8. Thick blowout
Wanna flaunt your hair’s natural volume? Blow dry your hair while brushing it upwards. Finish your hairstyle with a pomade or hairspray to make it last from day ’til night.
Editor’s tip: Nail this hairstyle with the help of VO5 Mega Hold Styling Gel. Its 5/6 Hold Level can make your hairstyle last even in high humidity.
9. Thick hair with taper fade
The trendy taper fade haircut is essential among long hairstyles for men with thick hair. You’ll recognize the haircut as it gradually gets shorter on the sides and towards the lower back. It is used interchangeably with the classic fade haircut, which just starts out short and then gets shorter. With thick hair, you can play with the taper fade to accentuate the length and thickness of your hair.
Editor’s Tip: With short hair on the sides, you won’t want to bare your scalp and any unsightly dandruff that might be on it, would you? Use CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men to activate the scalp’s natural protective layer from dandruff.
10. Classic pompadour
Send your kudos to Elvis when you don the pompadour on your crown. The retro hairstyle is characterized by the full volume of a pomp towards the top and front of your head. It has even evolved to incorporate a number of modern variations today, so you can get playful and experiment with this look.
11. Modern mohawk
There’s a lot of potential (and success!) to wearing a mohawk these days. Pair it with non-leather accessories and you’ll be surprised to see how fresh the modern mohawk can be.
12. Textured and tousled
A little bit of mess might be all you need to add oomph to a basic hairstyle. The textured and tousled look for men is perfect when you’re in the mood for something relaxed and low-key yet stylish.
With these long hairstyles for men with thick hair, you have more reasons to love your thick mane. Just make sure you keep your scalp dandruff-free and healthy and you stock up on the right styling products so you can rock any long hairstyle you want.
