Men Requesting TopKnots Hair Styles with Longer hair

by Mae Williams for Men's Fashion, men's grooming, Uncategorized

The latest new trend for men growing out their locks is Topknots according to Fashion Beans. This hair style isn't for everyone, but I thinks it has its place. After all, some men do want longer hair. You can dress it up or wear it casually. You would still need to get a hair trim. Remember your hair grows approximately a half inch per month and still requires regular hair trims every 4 weeks. I would recommend Redken Pomade to create this look. It would take about 5 minutes to style and get ready.

Any man can wear this at any age and look great.

Recently there has been a huge increase in guys growing their hair longer and tying it up in a topknot. Getting your hair to the length that’s required is hard work and takes perseverance, but there’s no denying that it looks effortlessly cool when tied up.

We’ve seen many variations on this style, with guys typically either choosing to take the back and sides extremely tight (similar to the previous style) or go down the more traditional route, with long length all over. The latter actually requires less maintenance than the former, which will need tidying up every couple of weeks to keep the same dramatic, disconnected effect.

The important thing to remember with long hair is that is does still need cutting frequently in order keep it in its best condition. The longer the hair, the older it is, which can lead to it becoming dry and damaged and cause it to split. There’s a reason your girlfriend is always checking her hair for split ends!

I would highly recommend purchasing a good quality shampoo and conditioner to help rehydrate and moisturise the hair. If it’s in bad condition then consider using a hair masque once or twice a week.

This kind of hairstyle looks great styled wet or dry – use a serum or pomade to enhance shine and give it a slicker look, or apply a leave-in conditioner and towel/blow dry for a more natural finish.
