2016 Long Hairstyles for Men: Top 6 Lengthy Looks
1. Shoulder-Grazing Hair
One of the easiest ways to wear your long hair is by wearing your locks down! To achieve your style, start off with freshly washed hair using the Suave Men 2-in-1 Alpine Fresh Shampoo + Conditioner for clean, soft hair. You can always blow-dry your hair to get it dry and shiny quickly. Then brush your hair back and to the side for a simple angled parting.
2. Long Braids
Braids on dudes are a great way for dudes to showcase their mane, while getting their locks away from their faces. You can always go for braided accents in your hair too. Follow this tutorial to learn how to braid your hair.

4. Extra Long Wavy Hair
We’re a little obsessed with this extra long wavy hairstyle. It’s a cool, modern take of hairstyles from the ’70s. To achieve a clean and shiny base, use the Suave Men 2-in-1 Ocean Charge Shampoo + Conditioner every day or every other day.
5. Medium-Length Wavy Hair
There is just something about the appeal of a dude with brushed back long hair! This is a top favorite 2016 long hairstyles for men in our books. To get this look apply a tiny amount of Bed Head For Men by TIGI Power Play Gel to the front of your hair near the roots. This will make sure your hair can stay in the style but won’t look crunchy or too shiny. While the gel is still wet, brush your hair back. Super easy for such a good look.
