MEN’S GROOMING: THE LONG AND SHORT OF HAIRSTYLES (PART 2)

My last post talked about small to mid length hair and how to maintain them. It is no easy task but with some perseverence, you can get through…

Now, that you are at this stage – your hair looks nice and long and you know the basics of haircare – here are a few styles that might work for you:

The Man Bun

Longer hair for men has become mainstream and with it came the man bun.
But if you’re wondering what is a man bun, well, to the uninitiated, it’s a cool alternative to the ponytail for pulling long hair up and back. A bun it a twist or loop of hair. It can be worn high on the head, low towards the neck or somewhere in between.

The hipster manbun

The mid mounted hipster man bun gives you a funky look

This style, in particular, is usually combined with a hipster beard: the shaggy and messy type of beards that right until 2011 were not trendy at all.
As you hair gets longer, it becomes more important to make sure you’re looking after your locks properly.

The full bun

The top mounted full bun can look elegant in any situation – be it sports, professional or at a rock concert!

The full bun is what we’d consider a textbook man bun. The full bun uses all the hair on the head to make the bun; thus, when styling your manbun, you will be grabbing all the hair on your head (sides and back included) and be tying it all into a single bun.

So, here’s a little recap

How to Grow Your Hair Out

  • Don’t avoid barbers – Despite what you may hear, not getting your hair cut at all is bad. Get those split ends tidied up
  • Look after your hair – Use good quality shampoo and conditioner to keep your hair moisturised and healthy
  • Use a product to style – Depending on your hair thickness and texture, use wax or clay to manipulate your style
  • Find the right length – Depending on the look you’re going for, keep the back and sides at a mid length with something like a number five haircut

And there you have it folks! Some tips to help you grow your hair out into the perfect look. Until next time! Ciao

In this cynical world full of collisions of emotions I reside in my own little world full of dreams that lay fathoms above & a hope in the deepest corner of my heart to achieve them. A little skeptic yet like water..ever flowing and settling with all the seasons alike. A little sugar, a lot of spice & everything nice. I strongly believe that a little effort to dress up & make a difference in our own life is worth the shot! Because your clothes speak louder than you do. Being in style doesn’t mean spending a bomb on clothing and Fashion but it’s more of being comfortable with who you are. Fashion fades with time but style always remains eternal. Spending money is A-Ok with me but I like my money right where I can see it – hanging in my closet. We all need to slap on some armour to deal with our boring mundane life. An armour called Fashion. Follow me and be your best for we live only once. Live. Love. Hail Fashion. ❤
