Hair Styling For Men: Handy Tips To Make Heads Turn
We know sometimes it can get difficult to pick hair styling for men! Don’t fret - we’ve got solutions for you whether it is long hair or short hair!
Hair Styling For Men With Long Hair
If you have a long mane, ditch the basic hairstyles and try out these unique, cool hairstyles! But before that, long hair means you’ll have to maintain a regular hair routine to keep it intact! Compared to short hair, longer hair requires more maintenance, which is why you should ensure your hair stays hydrated and moisturised all day long.
We know some men don’t like to have too many steps in their hair care routine, but if you have long hair, conditioner is a must! Plus, we know this is a no-brainer tip, but be sure to completely rinse off the shampoo and conditioner from your hair. If not, it’ll potentially cause dandruff or make it look greasy.
Go for the natural hairstyle look
While it’s much faster to use a hairdryer, your long mane could hugely benefit from getting air-dried instead. Why? Because, unlike women, when men use a hairdryer for their long hair, it tends to look really flawless, which isn’t ideal because a rough, rugged look would work better.
Consider man buns
You can never go wrong with the classic man buns! It helps to keep the hair away from your face while keeping it neat and tidy throughout the day.
Step 1: Use a styling product
You would need this in order to keep your bun intact and keep it neat. Apply the Inspiration Styling Clay - Wellsen Argan Oil to your hair which helps to nourish your hair while styling at the same time.
Step 2: Brush the hair
Remove the tangles and smoothen your hair to the direction of where your bun will be placed. The standard position would be at the bottom and to create a low ponytail.
Step 3: Create a bun
Once it’s a low ponytail, loop it into a bun and your man bun is done!

Wavy, textured hair
