While we often focus on ladies and the endless ways their hair can be styled, we’ve always enjoyed creating looks for men too. This is especially true now, as we’ve found that asian men are becoming increasingly open and adventurous, and are now more interested in playing around with their look, grooming and overall style and image – and in our opinion, that can only be a good thing! Hairstyles for asian men are becoming so much more versatile, stylish and interesting.
Let’s take a look at some of the hairstyles for asian men recommended by stylist Reno Tan
& creative stylist Peter Lee
that are flattering, easy to style for daily wear – and so very on-point.
1. Long Hair
One of the major changes we’ve seen is that guys are now more willing to grow out their hair. From chin length to shoulder length and beyond, long hair adds an air of handsome mystique and a good dose of style. Far from being messy and unkempt, it can be easily kept in check by going to a good hairstylist, who will be able to make sure the cut is one that will grow out evenly. A trim every few months is still necessary to keep it in shape!
2. The Man Bun with Undercut
This is a styling option for men with longer hair – tying their hair into a top knot, with an undercut on the sides. Overall, a very sleek and sharp look – a trend that started in 2014, this is one trend that is still far from losing steam!
3. The Perm
Also long on the top and short at the sides – this look comes with a twist. A perm creates a greater contrast between the sleek sides and the textured top. It works especially well on asian hair as thicker hair holds the perm well.
4. The Classic Fuss-Free
Super short, super low maintenance, and will never go out of style. A well-done version doesn’t even require hair product – it stays in shape till it’s time for a trim!
5. The Classic Undercut
Another perennial classic, this look is neat and natural, perfect for the fuss-free, low-maintenance guy. The undercut works especially well in hot weather – just add a little wax for styling, and it’s good to go!
…And facial hair comes into play
No longer just shaved off by default, those who have facial hair are starting to incorporate its grooming into their overall look.
