Corporate Casual: Cool Hairstyles for Guys with Long Hair

Corporate casual, meet long hair.

Being a corporate dude doesn’t always mean that you have to conform to a short hairstyle. Depending on where you work, you might have the option to showcase your naturally long hair. The one caveat to the corporate casual lifestyle is styling and maintenance.

Whether you’ve had long hair your whole life or recently grew it out, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite hairstyles for guys with long hair that we hope will inspire your look at work.

Keeping it Casual: Cool Hairstyles for Guys with Long Hair

1. Man Bun

We’ve certainly professed our love for the man bun in the past, and the main reason is it’s ease of styling while also looking effortlessly sexy. An excellent style for long-haired guys, the man bun represents an ode to a clean-up style as you still have your awesome long locks.

2. Simple Straight

You’ve been growing your hair out for a very, very long time, and boy does it look good! As you enter the workplace, you can still showcase your long locks but make sure your hair is styled, groomed, and of course, washed! You may find that a blow-dryer when getting ready for work in the AM is your BFF. Just don’t forget to use some heat protectant like the TRESemme Get Sleek Heat Protection Spray before you heat styling your hair!

3. Dreadlocks

Long natural hair can definitely be shown off via dreadlocks at work! As this style isn’t supposed to be washed as often, you can refresh your scalp and lengths when desired with a sebum-absorbing dry shampoo.

4.  Braided Style

Who says that women have to have all the fun when it comes to braided looks? No one! Guys with long hair can still have their free-flowing locks, while also keeping them in control with braids. We particularly love the half-up, half-down look that allows you to look polished as you let the locks on the bottom dangle.

5. Free-Flowing Curls

Corporate life is ever-changing, which also includes how guys wear their hair. If you have long curls, you might just find that you can let them hang loose in the business world. This style looks especially incredible on clean and well-styled hair. Start your day by washing by using some of the Axe Dark Temptation 2-in-1 Shampoo + Conditioner whose formula will get your hair clean and touchably soft.

6. Modern Mullet

The mullet is back and it’s better than ever. We’ve seen this modern iteration with fluffy bangs and long hair on the sides. A look rooted in Southern culture, the modern-day mullet is all about the length where ‘the party’ has moved from the back to all-over fest. In some work situations you may have to contain it with a hair tie or use some hair paste like the Bed Head for Men by TIGI Pure Texture Molding Paste to define the front section.
