Following the rise of longer hairstyles for men to full-blown trend status comes the relief that nineties boyband curtains have evolved. These days, they're a lot more wearable with textured side parts that combine a few different lengths for a more up-to-date look. While it's not quite as 'out there' as an undercut, it will still stand out from more traditional side part hairstyles

This kind of haircut can be worn with either a wet look or low-shine finish. The question is, how will you wear it?

Wet look

Take a small amount of regular strength gel and work it through your hair, focusing on the longer sections. Keep adding more as needed, then sweep it all to one side with your hands.

Smooth down the shorter areas and complete any finishing touches with your fingers or a wide-tooth comb, depending on how neat you want the final look to be.


If you're not up for a slick wet-look style, try using wax instead. It doesn't shine like a gel and it remains flexible so you can reshape whenever necessary throughout the day. To add texture, all you need to do is scrunch the longer hair after applying the wax.

For increased volume, massage the roots with your fingertips, then gently sweep some hair over the top.

What do you think? Could this kind of haircut work for you?
