If you want to grow your hair long, or longer, and are in need some inspiration, this thick wavy hairstyle for men might be able to help. It's full of texture and offers a surprising range of styling options, especially for anyone who has been wearing a closely cropped hairstyle for a while.

A versatile look

Longer hairstyles like this chin-grazing look can be swept back, to the side, into a bun, gathered up into a ponytail, left alone, disheveled... the possibilities are pretty much endless. The long and short of it is that you need never be bored with a lengthier style!

No growing pains

When growing your hair long, your original cut will change shape, and not necessarily in a good way. It's important not to skip regular trims while growing your hair in order to avoid weird tufts or strange silhouettes, and to make sure your style starts to even out as soon as possible.

How to style it

Create a deliberately disheveled look by scrunching some cream wax through your hair. Start by mussing the ends and work your way up, adding more product as needed.

For a more polished style, try sweeping your hair back with some pomade or a small amount of gel. Once you have a good amount of hold, use your hands or a comb to smooth the hair into place.

So, do you think you'll try a long hairstyle?
