Long Hair for Summer: Men’s Edition

Because men need to let down their long locks, too!

With every new season comes the itch to switch up your style. Summer is traditionally a time when men go shorter to keep cool, but we’ve been seeing lots of long hairstyles on the runway and think long hair for Summer is a great idea. Growing your hair long for Summer will give you more to style. It also gives you a new way to frame your face. If you like having your hair longer during the colder months, then we encourage to keep on growing that mane. Rock some long hair for summer!

Long Hair for Summer: Inspiration for Men

Grow out your ‘fro and color it a fun, warm tone.

1. Warm Toned ‘Fro

There are so many ways to style your hair when it’s longer and we think Summertime is the best time to experiment. Whether you’re growing your hair out to rock some dreads or braids or you want to let your natural hair free. If you decide to go the natural look, we are loving a longer, more grown out afro. If you want to further enhance your Summer vibes with this style, then go for a warmer hair color, too! We love the warm golden tones look. It’ll give off the appearance that your hair was naturally kissed by the sun.

Care for your bigger afro with lots of hydration and curl-friendly products. Be gentle when grooming your hair and remember to incorporate a detangler so that you don’t damage your strands. Our favorite products for Afro haircare include Suave Professionals Detangler Spray and TRESemmé Flawless Curls Defining Gel. The detangler will strengthen and nourish your locks while the gel will define your curls and give your style more bounce and movability.

2. Sleek Ponytail

Another great long hair for Summer look is a strong middle part with a slicked back ponytail. A sleek ponytail is perfect for hotter temperatures. You’ll stay cooler with your hair off your neck and if you sweat a little it can only add to the sleekness. If you’re going for this style, the middle part has to be strong and the look should be clean. Use a generous amount of Bed Head for Men by TIGI Power Play Firm Finish Gel to slick back your hair to ensure that it stays put throughout the day.

3. Dreamy Dreads

Dreadlocks are one of our favorite styles when it comes to long hair for summer. They add texture to your look and immediately draw attention to your face. While dreads are a great hairstyle for summer, they do require some maintenance that should be noted. If you’re going to go for this style then we recommend spraying some Suave Frizz Reducing Refresher Spray to keep your hair hydrated.
