Men have a complicated history with long hair as although Vikings saw it as a sign of victory, at one point in history, men with long hair started being considered “soft”. However, this stigma is slowly disappearing and more men have started their hair long nowadays, and with fantastic results.
To convince you that long hair is far from being ‘soft’ but rather more on the hunky and hot side, I’ve put together a list of male celebrities with long hair. Use it to get inspired and get the confidence to let those locks grow!
1. Brock O’Hurn
Brock is one of the star Instagram influencers of today with over 2,6 million followers on Instagram. Around 100.000 people, on average, like the pictures he posts on a daily basis.
2. Jason Momoa Long Hair with Blonde Tips
The Game of Thrones (Khal Drogo) and Aquaman combines his long hair with muscles of steel and I bet no one would think that he looks soft with his hair.
3. Keanu Reeves Medium to Long Hair
No list of male celebrities with long hair would be complete without Keanu Reeves. We’re sure that you can already picture the never-aging actor, and that he is sporting medium-length tresses. The famous actor also goes to show that you can rock a longer hairstyle even at an older age.
4. Harry Styles Long Hair Look
The former One Direction singer turned actor and generally, entertainer won many hearts over the year and a lot of men would like to be at a similar point in life. Short hair, long hair, Harry Styles can rock them both!
5. Kit Harrington Messy Wavy Hairstyle
There are many reasons why Kit Harrington was a Game of Thrones fan favorite, and one of them is definitely his hair. Just as we saw Jon Snow go through several hair lengths, so did Kit, and while he is now back to short hair, we like that he mostly keeps his hair messy and wavy.
6. Chris Hemsworth
Chris Hemsworth with long hair is almost the poster boy Australian surfer boy with his dreamy blond hair and blue eyes. He also sported the same haircut for two and a bit of the Thor movies before going short-haired in the movies and real-life alike.
7. Daniel Radcliff Frankenstein Hair and Look
Our favorite wizard boy is also grown up now, and gone is the childish look or roles too. Daniel Radcliff is a perfect fit for a list of male celebrities with long hair as he grew out his locks for his role in Victor Frankenstein.
8. Jared Leto Long Hair
What more to say here other than the fact that Jared Leto is famous for his long hair and the many cool ways he wore it both for his roles in movies and for his 30 Seconds to Mars performances.
9. Ben Dahlhaus
Ben Dahlhaus took the social media world by storm when he released a snapshot that literally blew up his career overnight. Now he is one of the most successful models in the world and an Insta celebrity. Here he is back in his long hair days. He’s since gone to adopt short hairstyles.
10. Giaro Giarratana
A film maker and Insta star, Giaro has impressive long curls that would make anyone stop and stare at them for a while. Definitely an eye-catcher whether left free or pulled up in a man bun.
11. William Tyler (aka Peaceoot)
William Tyler who is perhaps better known as Peaceoot on Instagram has long hair that he likes to style in a half up style and with a bright smile.
12. Chris Andre
Relatively unknown but definitely someone to start following! Chris has an impressive style with perfectly matching long curly locks to go along with it.
This is not the first times I’ve talked about Hank_ge as he is one of the fastest-growing names in the influencer industry nowadays. Many of his followers seem to compliment his hair, can you guess why?
14. Gaspard Ulliel
The French actor Gaspard Ulliel, perhaps best known from the Hannibal movies, has the straight sleek hair many guys dream about and looks just as good with long hair as he does with short haircuts.
15. Rafael Nadal Hair Left Long and Wild
The world-renowned tennis star has gone to show everyone that you can be athletic and sport long hair too, and we’d say he’s been pretty successful at doing both!
16. Tom Kaulitz
It’s perhaps very fitting to see Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel sporting a top knot. Gone are the days of his emo /scene look as he now wears his hair long and loose or in a stylish updo and probably without any hairspray.
17. Norman Reedus Hair Match
Norman Reedus is my and probably many others’ all-time favorite from HBO’s hit series The Walking Dead. Not much left to say except that his hair is the perfect addition to his quirky personality.
18. Russell Brand
Russell once said that with hair like his, you would need to be famous otherwise people would think you are mentally unstable. However, his hair looks very stylish and put together and perfect to wear when styled like in the picture below.
19. Myles Kennedy
You can easily call Myles Kennedy double famous: both for being the lead vocalist of Alter Bridge, his band, and for being the lead vocalist for Slash‘s backing band and a steady member of their tours.
20. Jack Greystone
David Jack or Jack Greystone as he is best know is an Instagram Model and self-declared humour artist, wanderman, and Dharma bum that likes sporting his long wavy to curly locks free or in a bun.
So there you have it, a list of established or up-and-coming male celebrities with long hair or at least medium tresses that serve to show that you can wear your hair lock long and still look manly and fabulous!
