By  | 

Straight hair can sometimes feel boring to those who have it (and enviable to those who have curly hair). If you feel like you can’t really impress with your plain straight hair, we have just the pick me up for you. We’ve gathered intel on the best men’s hairstyles that are especially designed to flatter straight hair and make it look amazing.

We narrowed down the list to fewer choices, until we came up with this selection of styles and we hope you’ll love it as much as we do. Have fun browsing and rest assured that you’ll find something for any kind of style and length down the list.

1) Deep Side Part Short Straight Hairstyle

A deep side part can always bring a ton of class to any haircut. And what do you know: for this sleek retro-inspired style, straight hair actually looks best. If worked into a well-chosen hairstyle, a mane of straight hair can be a wonderful asset.

With its classy touch and tamed but remarkable tone, this is among the best choices of hairstyles for straight hair.

2) Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Look with Low Ponytale

Ever since those Thor movies, Chris Hemsworth’s long hairstyle has become one of the coolest looks for men with straight hair. If your hair is naturally blonde or light-colored and your beard is full, then you could totally pull of this Viking look.

The low ponytail is a comfortable grooming choice for long hair, and the overall look leaves plenty of room for occasional touch-ups, should the need for more variety arise. Lateral thin braids, tying up the hair in a higher-up man bun instead of the low ponytail, you name it. The main point is that it’s a style that goes great for men with straight hair.

3) Textured Feathered Funky Hairstyle for Straight Hair with Undercut

If you feel like something shorter but spectacular nonetheless, why not go for a feathered look with undercut? Its textured look with multiple layers is funky and will get you noticed immediately. Also, this is one of those hairstyles that work best with straight hair, because the layers and ‘feathers’ are more clearly defined and visible.

This hairstyle could also work well with a streak of vivid color. You could even shave more from the top, leaving only a thin central avenue of longer hair, in a modern punk re-interpretation.

4) Man Bun and Faded Sides Connected with Beard

The trick to this beautiful haircut is to keep the faded sides of the hair perfectly in synch with the beard underneath. As long as they are the same length and your trim them together, your straight hair look will be smart and flawless.

The man bun will probably not go out of style for another few ears, so you have nothing to lose by going with this classy, sleek haircut. Just remember to keep your facial hair on the same page and everyone will want to know where you got your haircut.

5) Sleek Skin Fade Undercut for Straight Hair

For a shorter style that still puts straight hair onto its best footing, try this skin fade with undercut. It is sleek and proper, requires a bit of grooming but results into a controlled casual elegance.

The hard part, with the perfectly drawn geometrical skin line, also gives it a youthful vibe that will definitely bring the haircut into cool territory. So, if you’re looking for a short hairstyle for men with straight hair that is classy but also cool, this is it.

6) The Zayn Malik Crewcut Hairstyle

The young singer Zayn Malik has become somewhat of a sensation in the hairstyles niche, because of the way he changes his hairstyles and inspires millions of fans to do the same. This particular crewcut hairstyle he sported at some point is a perfect example how to style short straight hair.

Pushing the top of your hair to the front will give it more texture and volume, while the faded rest of the hair will keep it tame and neat. If you prefer haircuts that remind you of the army and buzz cuts, but you’re still looking for a change, this is the hairstyle you need.

7) Medium Straight Messy Haircut

This is a hairstyle for men with straight hair that requires almost no upkeep. In fact, as long as the hairstylist gets the layers done correctly in the first place, it will pretty much take care of itself.

All you need to do is to maintain your straight hair by keeping it clean and maybe using a shampoo that gives extra shine. That way all the layers of the hair will be easier to notice and admire.

As you can see, there are plenty of great things to do with straight hair, as far as men’s hairstyles are concerned. Choose your favorite from this list and take it to the barber so you can embody its spirit as well, or give it your own twist. The possibilities are limitless and so, so fun.
