1. Slicked Back Medium Length Hair for Men

One of the clever ways to pull off this hairstyle is to have the sides trimmed while still keeping the length of the top part in a nice pompadour. If you have the time, you can use a fine-tooth comb to pull the hair back to define the strands and keep it from looking all over the place. You can also use your fingers and comb it through your hair after applying a generous amount of hair putty or pomade to keep it all in place.

Editor’s tip: Always start with a clean and fresh scalp. If you often put styling products on your hair, give it a thorough washing with CLEAR Deep Cleanse Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men

2. Side-parted Medium Length Hair for Men

Similar to the slicked-back ‘do, this hairstyle is a side-swept version that’s a sure winner for men with medium-length hair. With this hairstyle, it doesn’t even matter if you trim the sides or keep it long as well. You can use a gel or just choose to style with slightly damp hair. Just comb your hair across and “over” to the other side, and you’re done!

Editor’s Tip: Use a styling putty such as TONI&GUY Mattifying Putty for Men to keep your hair in place while giving it a chic, matte finish. 

3. Textured and Tousled

Want to keep it looking more of a mess? How about we elevate that to a more stylish and dapper-looking mess instead? With the textured and tousled hairstyle for men, you don’t need to make your hair perfectly polished. A little bit of mess here and there adds to the charm.

4. Low Man Bun

Looking for a quick way to style your medium length hair for men? Simply put it in a low man bun, and you’re done! The only thing you’ll need is a hair elastic to tie it up, and you can go about your busy day.

Editor’s tip: Start your day by washing your hair with CLEAR Ice Cool Menthol Sport Anti-Dandruff Shampoo to have that presko feeling on your scalp all day long!

5. Man Ponytail

You can also rock a man ponytail to keep your medium length hair off your face and neck. Just like the man bun, you just need to tie your hair with an elastic. You can cop this look even if you don’t have styling products on hand.

6. Man Bun Undercut Fade

If you have a unique haircut like a combo of medium length hair and undercut, you can also rock a man bun to keep your hair neat and styled. It shows off your shaved sides (or even shaved nape), while the bun draws attention to your medium length hair on top.

7. Man Lob

Who says only women can pull off a long bob (a.k.a. “lob”)? More and more men are daring to pull off the man lob and simply letting their long locks flow freely. This hairstyle, donned by big celebs and top models, does add a certain rockstar vibe to anyone’s look.

Forget all the rules when it comes to how men should look. If you’re not really a fan of the typical clean-cut hairstyle, then by all means experiment in growing out your locks and try any of these medium length hairstyles for men.
