13 Professional Mens Hairstyles that Work from Day to Night
1. Embrace the Classics
Grab a little bit of AXE Spiked-Up Look: Extreme Hold Gel and run it through the front of your hair. Then, use your comb to brush it backward to give your hair that classic combed feel.
2. Combed to the Side
Follow the same directions with a little bit of hair gel and your favorite comb, but this time brush your hair to the one side of your head for a shift in perspective.
3. Gelled Fade
Upgrade your fade by gelling your hair into a gravity-defying spiked up look. Use a powerful gel, like Bed Head for Men by TIGI Power Play Gel, to lock your style into place.
4. Light Styling
Use just a touch of Bed Head for Men by TIGI Press Up Styling Foam to accentuate your volume and streamline your hair into a lightly styled ‘do. Ed’s note: Want a bit of guidance on blow-drying men’s hair? Click here for a tutorial.
5. Long and Wavy
Filed under: ways to rock longer hair without looking messy. Keeping your wavy strands cropped just two to three inches from your roots will keep your look streamlined and classy.
6. Long and White
Maintain a little bit of your youth while embracing your gray hair by leaving your locks a little longer. A style like this looks crisp on silver strands and requires nearly zero product to hold it in place.
7. Cropped Close
Not into a lengthy grooming and styling routine? This is the look for you.
A small section of spiked up strands in the front will give your look some personality while a carefully trimmed beard will balance this look and keep it streamlined overall.
9. Slicked Back
Looking for a trendy way to wear slicked back hair? Pair the look with a tight fade and a little bit of scruff to avoid looking greasy.
10. Spike to the Side
Consider this the men’s version of an ‘I woke up like this’ style. Run your fingers through your hair, then style it off to one side for an easy an laid-back look.
11. Closely Shaved
Looking for an easy hair routine that will still look intentional and professional? Opt for a closely shaved style that screams confidence without being overdone.
12. Brushed Up
Mask thinning strands by adding volume and brushing your hair up and away from your face.
13. Almost Bald
It takes confidence to rock an almost (or completely) bald look like this. Let that confidence set the tone for each workday and go into work feeling bold and ready to kill the game.
