Man Ponytail Hairstyles in 2020 That You Can Create at Home

Swept back or loose and flowy, learn how you can rock these man ponytails to go with your long, healthy hair.

Sexy, mysterious, artsy, and alluring. Men with long hair tend to be associated with art, music, and other creative pursuits. Nowadays, any man can pull off long hair because hairstyles have gone beyond the conventional ponytail or simply leaving hair down.

Today’s trends allow men to play around and flaunt their long hair in a variety of ways. You’ve heard of the man bun, but have you heard of the man ponytail? Check out these ways you can start wearing your long mane today.

1. Half Up Bun Ponytail

Want to sweep some hair away from your face, but still want to highlight its length? Go mid-way. Gather half of your hair into a ponytail then simply tuck the ends into a hair tie and tug to create a half-bun.

2. Curly Bun Ponytail

Volume, texture, and shape. These are some of the things curly and long-haired men are gifted with. Simply twisting hair into a hair tie and letting some strands dangle freely already create a laidback vibe.

Editor’s tip: Get ready in seconds. Increase texture and create that rough look with TONI&GUY Mattifying Putty for Men.

3. Low Tail

Whether at work or at play, this ponytail gives you a neat and clean profile. Comb your hair back and tie it just above your nape. It’s a look that you can wear easily from day to night.

Editor’s tip: Men’s scalps secrete more oil, making them more prone to dandruff. Washing hair with CLEAR Deep Cleanse Anti-Dandruff Shampoo can help prevent dandruff. This shampoo helps get rid of dirt and excess oil while leaving a minty, refreshing feel on your scalp. 

4. High Tail

The higher the tail, the artsier the look, especially when worn with a well-manicured beard. Gather hair into a ponytail and secure tightly with a hair tie at the back of your head. Use a fine-toothed comb to gather hair and create a neater hairstyle.

Editor’s tip: The key to this look is keeping stray strands in place. Keep them locked in style by spritzing TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray after tying your hair.

5. Undercut Dreadlock Braided Ponytail

This look is for the more adventurous, long-maned gents. If you’re looking for a hairstyle that makes a bold, striking statement, then this one’s worth trying. It marries the undercut, dreadlocks, and braided ponytail, giving you multiple elements to flaunt. The contrast of sparse to super thick, voluminous hair is a definite head-turner.

6. Messy Low Man Ponytail

When you feel like styling your hair is too much of a task, you can go for this messy low man ponytail. All you basically need is an elastic band to tie your hair and you’re all set. This is an easy hairstyle for your long hair when you’re staying home all day.

Editor’s tip: Keep your hair healthy as it grows longer by using CLEAR Anti-Hairfall Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. Make each strand strong to resist pulling and hair trauma.

Feeling experimental with your hair? Try a shaven head combined with a man ponytail. Hey, there’s no written rule about hairstyles, so feel free to express yourself and prioritize comfort, especially now that temperatures are soaring because of summer heat.

If you haven’t gotten the chance to get a haircut or a good shave, you can still look neat by tying your hair up into a man ponytail or a man bun. It’s also a great way to feel presko this summer.

9. Long and Curly with a Semi-Undercut

Who says voluminous ponytails are only suitable for women? A man ponytail can be just as full and voluminous, especially if you have naturally curly hair.

Manageable, wearable, and easy to style, the man ponytail is a hairstyle that’s worth your time (and a little bit of effort). With the help of reliable hair products to give shape, texture, and shine, any long-haired man can easily rock this look and give off an artsy, youthful, and creative vibe.
