Looking for cool, new Asian men’s hairstyles? Then you’re in the right place. If you’re an Asian guy, you probably find that your hair is thicker and coarser, and while that may mean it can be more stubborn to style, not to mention you probably often find you’re using products in abundance, your natural texture does lend itself perfectly to all manner of cool, creative and unique looks.

With this in mind, it’s comes as no surprise that many Asian men are trendsetters in the hair stakes – often bringing innovative and stylish new hairstyles to the world’s attention. Here’s our run-down of the hottest Asian men’s hairstyles you should try now.

Buzz cut

Because Asian men’s hair is typically straighter and thicker in dimension, those who want a super low-maintenance hairstyle should go for an ultra short, shaved cut, AKA the buzz cut. To achieve this look, ask your barber to keep it tight all over, but don’t be afraid to request for a little extra length on top if you want a more defined overall shape. And because it needs minimal styling, this Asian men’s haircut is perfect for busy guys on-the-go, too.

Long choppy bangs

With its distinctive, choppy long fringe and relatively long, layered sides, this on-trend look is also incredibly easy to style – which is always a bonus! This medium-length haircut has become increasingly popular in recent years, thanks to the many K-Pop stars who’ve made this boyish, bangs-anchored look their cut of choice.

Love it or hate it, there’s no denying the popularity of the man bun – and did we mention it looks great on Asian men’s hair, too? Cool and contemporary with a traditional twist, this half-up, half-down mun suits all face shapes, but is particularly ideal for gents with more angular features or strong jaw lines. So if you’re looking for a casual, warrior-esque take on the man bun, this one could be the look for you.

The French crop

In spite of its name, the French crop is actually a really universal style – and it suits Asian men’s thicker, coarser hair textures perfectly. For those after a hairstyle that requires minimal styling efforts, you can’t go wrong with this classic, masculine cut that essentially involves traditional short back and sides. The top is usually kept slightly longer, and can be combed forward into a fringe. Neat, handsome and versatile enough for most occasions, it’s definitely one to try if you want to save time in the morning!

Side-parted comb-over

The last of our round-up of Asian men’s hairstyles looks good on guys of any age. It involves the sides and back being taken slightly shorter than the top, and a very deep side part. The comb-over look is incredibly versatile and provides plenty of scope for different finishes. So take your pick between keeping it straight and sleek, or adding some texture and height to create the illusion of thicker hair. The options really are endless!
