These two styles will refresh your hair and give it that oomph! To quote the Swede:
The haircut is pretty simple and works for both of the hairstyles we are going to be showing you today. First, you need to have long hair to pull off these looks. We recommend that you grow it out just a little longer than shoulder length. When it comes to long hair it’s up to you whether you want to go to your usual barber or head to a unisex salon that most likely has more experience with cutting long hair.
Ask your stylist for a soft scissor, shoulder length haircut. This is done by cutting into the hair instead of across to create softer and more natural edges instead of a blunt cut. Next, clip the hair up off the face and neck and use the clippers to buzz down the sideburns and any straggling hairs at the base of the neck. This will keep the look neat and professional when you tie up your hair.
The man bun is a staple for the long-haired man. It is the quick and easy way of taming your mane when you’re on the go and one of the best go-to styles for any long-haired footballers needing to last through 90minutes of game play.
How to Style:
This style is for the fellas that like to go that extra mile when it comes to styling their hair. The look is perfect for taming that long, wild hair and keeping it out of your face for days. The perfect hairstyle for the busy man with plenty of character.
