Russell Brand

Unruly, untamed and breaking all the rules, Russell Brand’s long and messy locks are an integral part of his signature style, and a great example of how guys with long hair can look fantastic if they have the right dose of confidence.

While you might want to minimise the messy part of this look, maintaining some of that perfectly dishevelled texture is ideal, especially if your hair already has a natural wave to it.

Editor’s tip: To nail this style, just work a little VO5 Extreme style Casual Control Fluff Tamer through your mane while it’s damp to give it shape and added texture!

Whether he’s rocking his locks wild and flowing for the big screen as Thor or keeping his dirty blonde hair combed and sleek, Chris Hemsworth definitely sports an inspiring ‘do.

With a hair length kept just below his jawline, the actor demonstrates how guys with long hair can still have a well-groomed appearance. Just remember to keep a ‘less is more’ approach when it comes to styling products to prevent your hair from looking and feeling greasy or heavy.

Jared Leto‘s ombre long hair was definitely a showstopper on the red carpet. And long locks look their best when taken care of properly, so make sure you use the right combination of shampoo and conditioner, and blow-dry regularly to keep your longer hair looking sleek and shiny.

Brad Pitt

Like most actors, Brad Pitt often switches up his hairstyle from long to short (and long again!). But when it’s grown out, his ‘do shows how guys with long hair can look years younger.

Falling naturally straight, Pitt’s mane exudes a laid-back surfer vibe. So, to get the look, simply add subtle layers through your cut to create definition and shape.

Editor’s tip: Don’t forget to use some TONI&GUY Mens Messy Salt Spray to give some texture when styling.

Long hairstyles don’t have to be super long in order to look stylish. Joe Manganiello demonstrates how mid-length hair can work really well when subtle, graduated layers are added to through the front and back. 

Plus, by keeping his locks swept away from his face, this stylish actor manages to keep his ‘do groomed and understated.

Christian Bale

The Dark Knight star Christian Bale is quite a chameleon in the hair department, having sported buzz cuts, slick short hair and rugged long styles in the past.

And if you ask us, the reason why he pulls off a longer style so effortlessly, is because of the clever placement of subtle layers, which help to create a feathered look, making his hair appear full of body and movement.
