Flow hair was originally a popular hairstyle among hockey players, surfers, and skateboarders, and is basically medium to long-length hair that has been pushed back for a wind-swept look. If you’re a style-conscious male looking to up your mane game, you may have come across the ‘flow hair’ trend already. And while you might not fully understand what this look is, a whole host of A-list stars have already started to work the style for themselves.
