Top 5 Hairstyles for Boys

Apr 29, 2013

Your hairstyle can make just as much of a statement as your personal styleif you want it to! Sure, it's just hair but how many celebrities do we know that have a signature hairstyle? Curly or straight, groomed or au naturale, no matter what your hair type, there's a style out there that is sure to suit you! The best thing about hair is that if you don't like a style, your hair will grow out so it's super easy to change. From short spiky strands to long wavy locks and everything in between - just choose the style that's right for your hair type and attitude. Check out our picks for the top hairstyles for boys! 

Harry Styles

If you have naturally wavy hair like Harry Styles, maybe it's time to stop fighting it and just let it be! This style is perfect for anyone confident about their style. It's shaggy, a bit messy and sticks up in odd places. You don't really need styling gel or cream - well maybe run a bit through your hair if it's truly frizz-prone. The best thing about this style is that you can shape and mold it into anything you want. Want a sleek look? Simply brush it out and add a bit of styling creme. Want to go au naturale and messy? Just wake up and go! All you need is a dash of confidence and cheeky smile to pull it off.

Jamie Campbell Bower

The 1990s are back and that means longer hairstyles for boys! Jamie Campbell Bower's shoulder length locks are a bit higher maintenance than having just simple short hair. It's both a bit surfer, a bit grunge and definitely a signature look. If you want to leave your hair a bit long, be prepared to dedicate a bit of time to keeping it looking healthy and clean. This style looks best if you have a bit of natural body in your hair so stay away if you have super fine hair.

Justin Bieber

We can't have a discussion about hairstyles for boys without bringing up Justin Bieber. From his signature bowl cut to this current suave hairdo, Justin's hair can seem larger than life. If you want the slick, groomed look then this stylized look is for you. Short on the sides and longer on the top, if you go for this style be prepared to put in a bit of time styling it whenever you go out. It's definitely not low maintenance but it makes a statement!

Zac Efron

Super stylish for guys, this  cool style is a bit longer all around and works great with all hair textures. Zac Efron's hair is straight with a bit of texture and he enhances it with adding a bit of texturizing styling creme. Push it to the side to completely change the look or channel Zac's cool look by leaving it straight and down in the front!

Robert Pattinson

We've been loving Robert Pattinson's new look as of late! Spotted most recently at the Coachella music festivalin California! Totally relaxed and casual, it's short all over and is the personification of easy, low-maintenance hair. You don't have to worry about putting any styling creme in it, you can just get up and go. It's so short that you don't even have to worry about hat hair! What's not to love?

I just don't enjoy anything I used to. My mum does know but she says it's a phase. It isn't. I just started high school, but I don't have any new friends yet and all the popular girls pick on me and call me a loner :-( I hate school. I like the actual lessons but I don't like the social side of it. There are lots of clubs on at lunch that I want to go to but I'm too scared to go to any. I have been to one , science club but everyone was staring at me the whole time (I don't know why, and frankly I don't care, I just want them not to). Any advice would be appreciated. It really does help to talk to someone (teacher, parent, counselor, or another trusted adult) about it. If you tell someone what you've written here I'm sure someone will help you.  As for the clubs, you really just gotta go for it. Things are always going to be scary at first but it will get better the more you get into it. And obviously being in a club should help make friends. I hope what I've said is even a little bit helpful! :)
