5 Fresh Long Hair On Top Hairstyles for Cool Guys

Take your style to another level.

Long hair on top hairstyles are the cool and edgy middle ground between long hair and short. These styles are often shaved on the sides and longer up on top but the length on top does vary! Some men opt for a mid-length messy style while others embrace a full man bun length. No matter which direction you go, there’s something for everyone in the long hair on top category.

5 Long Hair On Top Styles

Here are 5 fresh ways to wear long hair on top styles.

1. Buttoned-Up Man Bun

We can’t get enough of this sleek man bun.

There is a common misconception out there that man buns are only casual and edgy styles. This look begs to differ! Wear the longer section of hair up in a neat bun and use a product like Bed Head by TIGI Wax Stick to smooth out any flyaway hairs to streamline this style. Just like that this look becomes office and event appropriate.

2. Messy Fade

Embrace the messiness.

This messy mid-length fade sits on the other end of the spectrum. This more casual and free-spirited style is a great way for those with wavy hair to embrace their natural wave pattern. A bit of Dove Men + Care Medium Hold Molding Paste will help you mold your style into that perfectly imperfectly spot.

3. Classic Man Bun

Casual and cool.

Unlike the more streamlined man bun above, this casual man bun is a total classic. Messy, undone and super easy to create, this look requires zero hair products. Just grab a hair tie, gather your hair up into a bun and secure the look.

4. Natural Curls

5. Play with Color
