Weekend Warriors: 3 Sexy Men’s Medium Hairstyles to Try After Work

You made it to the weekend! Now go strut your stuff.

Men’s weekend medium hairstyles are a bit tricky to work around, especially in colder weather. We’re bundled up for most of the season, which, between hoodies and staticky beanies as well as the occasional downpour, can leave our otherwise sexay hairdos rumpled and a bit shabby.

Good news though: The weekend is a few hours away! We get a few days to lounge about, relax (edit: who are we kidding—it’s the holidays) and maybe even experiment with a few new styles, or ways to wear our current look, to give us a mini-upgrade before we end the year.

Read on for a shortlist of some cool men’s medium hairstyles to show off—whether you’re in for a full weekend of holiday parties, or have a low-key couple of days with some buds (or Netflix, because these days, #thesnuggleisreal).

3 Sexy Men’s Weekend Medium Hairstyles to Try

1. Floppy Undercut

For all of you guys who’ve reined in their undercuts during the workweek, now is the time to let loose and have fun with your length. This longish curtains look is a particularly easy style to emulate, especially if you have straight to wavy hair, as it has a pretty simple prep regimen. A moisturizing and thickening shampoo and conditioner (we like the sheen we get from Bed Head by TIGI for Men Charge Up Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner) enhances body, giving your lengths just the right amount of bounce and movement. After rinsing, rough-dry with a blowdryer and your fingers and finish by raking through a finger-swipe amount of natural-hold cream, like AXE Natural Look: Softening Cream for a bit of allover control.

2. Tied-up Dreads

The man bun has met its match—or at least it’s partner in crime—with the half-up dreadlocks look. These kinds of men’s medium hairstyles are quite versatile, particularly on off days where all you wanna do is chill out, get some gym time of the way or have a low-key hang with the guys. To achieve, gather your locs back and secure with a hair tie. If you have shorter hair, you can also opt to tie only half your hair up as an easy alternative.

3. Tucked Quiff

Men with straight, wavy or slightly curly hair can pull off a medium-length hairstyle with a bit of texture, without looking top heavy. Styling your fringe area in a quiff or pomp (try some pomade for hold, such as Dove Men+Care Defining Pomade) can provide an extra dose of swag to an otherwise regular chin-length ‘do. This look can also work with an overgrown undercut (or even a mullet) and can be brought from daytime to drinks with a side part via a comb and some gel for hold. We like Bed Head for Men by TIGI Power Play.
