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.

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.
