Long hairstyles for men are still one of the most sought after hairstyles. For all such people who want to join the metal crowd, I would suggest learning the basics of proper hair care. It is important to protect your hair from direct sunlight, in order to keep them shiny and healthy. You also need to avoid harsh hair colors, bleaches and chemicals. It is also important to trim your hair once in every 8 to 10 weeks, so that split ends and dead hair ends can be removed. You also need to use a suitable conditioner to nourish the hair and keep them untangled. Healthy long hair doesn’t really require much of styling, still, if you prefer, you can use hair bands and other hair accessories.
Apart from the above mentioned alternative hairstyles, you can always opt for the emo hairstyle, rocker hairstyle, and seductive hairstyle. You can try a common hairstyle in the most uncommon way, in order to make it a really interesting alternative hairstyle. For instance, hairstyles with bangs are not anon, but you can make them really voguish, by customizing them and creating your own pattern of bangs which are designed to suit you. Good luck!
