Sung Kang's Long Layered Hairstyle

For a playful but masculine look, a long layered style will have you turning heads. If you have fine or thinning hair, you should steer clear of having longer hair, as it will emphasize your lack of fullness. However, if you are blessed with a fuller head of thick hair, particularly with any natural wave, you can pull off a longer hairstyle. Longer lengths look best when layered to take out bulk and add style. And it should be kept clean at all times as there is nothing worse than greasy, stringy, longer hair. A great example of a long layered hairstyle is found here on actor Sung Kang.

Suggested products to help achieve this look are: Alterna’s Nutritive Crème Gel, American Crew’s Light Hold Texture Lotion, or Bumble and Bumble’s Sexy Surf Spray.

Chow Yun-Fat's Textured Short Hairstyle

If you are looking for a clean-cut look that is far from boring, try a textured short style. You can have all the clean lines from a more traditional clipper cut without having to pick a cutting-comb number for all around. Having the top textured instead of clippered creates depth and movement and the clean lines create a fresh professional look. Ask your barber or stylist to use texturizing shears strategically on the top layers of your hair. An example of a textured short hairstyle is seen here on actor Chow Yun-Fat.

Suggested products to help acheive this look are: Modern Organic Products’ Glisten High Shine Pomade, Alterna’s Hemp Modeling Clay, or American Crew’s Fiber.

A faux-hawk is a modern twist on the 1980’s punk mohawk style, a look that seems to have swept globally in popularity. Faux-hawk hairstyles give the illusion of the mohawk where hair center comes to a high point with a clean-cut or faded back and side hairline. Musician David Choi's faux-hawk like hairstyle is a more conservative approach to this edgy hairstyle. To see the many iterations of the faux-hawk, see my Photo Gallery of Men's Faux-Hawk Hairstyles.

Suggested products to help achieve this look are: Alterna’s Hair Concrete, Fudge’s Urban Matte Wax, or Bumble and Bumble’s Sumotech.

American League All-Star Ichiro Suzuki #51 of the Seattle Mariners, sports a no frills buzz-cut hairstyle. Typically this cut is achieved using the clipper all over at zero, meaning no clipper comb/guard, then you can choose to have the sides and nape faded into the rest of the hair. There is nothing complicated about a hairstyle like this, and there is no need for styling products either. Just wash and go, but it is important to make sure to keep the scalp flake free and have a nice sheen to the hair by massaging in a scalp oil. To see the many iterations of buzz-cut hairstyles, see my Picture Gallery of Men's Buzz Cuts.

Suggested products to achieve this look are: MOROCCANOIL’s Original Oil Treatment.

For a relaxed style that conveys sophistication, a textured medium style should suit you. The key to this style is to ensure the added length looks intentional and not like an overgrown short style that missed its appointment with shears. Go for a longer bang and sideburns, ensuring thickness and bulk is taken out by having your stylist use texturizing shears. To keep the look modern, avoid sporting a harsh part in the hair. An example of this look can be found on actor and musician Jay Chou.

Products to help achieve this look are: American Crew’s Defining Paste, Bed Head’s Mastermind Cream, or Bumble and Bumble’s Sumowax.

John Cho's Classic Short Hairstyle

A classic short hairstyle, as seen here on actor John Cho, is timeless and works for any facial shape and for most hair types. If you have fine or thinning hair, this style will had texture and volume, giving the appearance of a fuller head of hair. If you have thick or coarse hair, bulk can easily be removed by using a texturizing technique throughout the head of hair. No matter your hair type, you will have a style that is polished, clean and professional. You can also get creative with the side burns by fading into the skin or by squaring them off, but it looks much more classic to square off both the side burns and nape of the neck. Styling for this haircut can be refined for work with pomade or gel. For after hours, you can tousle the hair with styling wax or cream for an intentionally “messy” look that is more relaxed and playful.

Suggested products to achieve this look are: Paul Mitchell’s Super Sculpt Styling Glaze, TIGI Bed Head’s Headshrink Gel, or Mop’s Orange Peel Molding Cream

Daniel Henney's Long No Fuss Hairstyle

Actor Daniel Henney augments his good looks with a long brushed back no fuss hairstyle. To achieve a look like his, you must have a medium to thick head of hair to properly pull it off. If you have fine hair, the longer length will only accentuate the thinning. This carefree and easy-going hairstyle can be brushed back off of the face or worn shaggy and unkempt by layering it forward. Although this style is seemingly low-maintenance, it is important to have your stylist cut layers into your hair rather than being all one-length looking like a bob. Layers can either be cut with cutting shears, or for an edgier look, ask your stylist to cut the layers using a straight-edge razor. Regular hair trims are required as you may be prone to split-ends with the longer length of hair, unless you take care to condition the hair regularly. You do not want to over-style this cut with too much hair product, as you want to upkeep the carefree look. A leave-in conditioner in either a light cream or spray on formula would be ample amount of product to style the hair with ease.

Suggested products to achieve this look are: Mop’s Leave-In Cream Conditioner, Paul Mitchell’s Lite Detangler, or TIGI Bed Head’s Ego Boos Split-End Mender and Leave In Conditioner

Rain's Razor Style Shag

A look that is far from relaxed and aims for bold intentional edge is the razor style shag. Instead of using shears to create texture, your stylist slices through your ends with a straight edge razor. This creates clean, deconstructed texture that enables "movement" through the hair. If your hair does not naturally lay stick-straight, you may want to use a flatiron to create the sleek finish this style should carry. An example of this look is found on musician Rain seen here arriving at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. For more shaggy hairstyle ideas, see my Picture Gallery of Men's Shaggy Hairstyles.

Products to help achieve this look are: Alterna’s Straight Crème, Bumble and Bumble’s Straight Cream, or Aveda’s Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener.

Takeshi Kaneshiro's Full-Bodied Hairstyle

If you like a little wind in your hair and a little flair in your style, you’ll find both with a full-bodied hairstyle. The idea is to start with an all-over layered cut to obtain optimal volume. Then, to actually achieve the volume, you will need to either use a large barreled curling iron, or get a perm. Yes, men do get perms, believe it or not! Rid your mind of the images of the old-lady curl that is tight and to the scalp. Instead, ask your stylist for a body wave with large barrel rods for the sole purpose of putting volume and texture into your hair. An example of this look is seen here on Japanese actor Takeshi Kaneshiro.

Products to help achieve this look are: Bed Head’s Cocky Thickening Paste, Aveda’s Phomollient Styling Foam, or Alterna’s Thickening Compound.
