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: Keep your hair in place by styling it using Axe Ice Chill Pomade. It gives your hair some hold and shine so you can rock any hairstyle you want all day long. 

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. If you’re staying at home, this nice messy look also clicks.

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. It’s a great ‘do if you’re spending the day segregating your things in the garage.

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. When staying at home, you can also rock this ‘do the messy style!

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.

8. Comb Over

Keep your hair in perfect shape no matter where you’re going or what you’re doing with the comb over hairstyle. All you need is just a little help from your putty and a little combing to achieve this sleek look. Exude the vibe of an eligible bachelor who knows what he wants and how to get it! It’s also a great ‘do for making conference calls with your boss from home.

Editor’s tip: Enjoy a long-lasting hairstyle with a small amount of VO5 Rough It Up Putty. It will give your hair texture without the unnecessary weight. 

9. Korean Wavy Hairstyle

Of course, the Korean wavy hairstyle is on this list given how popular K-dramas are. So, join the bandwagon and give your hair some K-wave goodness. And if you already have thick hair, the natural bounce and volume will work in your favor.

10. Man Bun Braid

Got a lot of things to do at home? Then, put your hair up in a sleek man bun and spend your day focused on work or chores. This looks especially nice if your hair is an undercut or fade. But, of course, this works with any medium-length haircut. 

12. Wavy Style
