This look is ideal for men with medium length hair. A layered hairstyle will give your hair dimension and keep it looking interesting. You can experiment with the parting and switch it up from side to side or do a tousled, laid-back middle parting. Just try to avoid a stick-straight center parting as this sometimes leaves your locks looking limp or awkward.

7. Man Braids

There’s probably just a handful of guys who would want to try man braids, but if you are one of the brave ones who also happen to know how to do braids, you can incorporate some simple plaits into your hair like this. The tousled, undone look keeps things masculine and definitely interesting.

8. Highlighted Layers

To be honest, there are more women who color their hair than men. But this should not stop you from doing the same thing to your hair if you really want it! If you’re not comfortable with a full head of hue, highlights on your layers is a good place to start. Go for dark brown hues to keep the manly vibe of your hair.
