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?

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?

This is gonna be long:   I have this 'friend' Amelia. She and I bonded really fast last year and we've become inseparable.   But lately she's blowing me off and my other best friend Belen told me: Amelia is actually using you. She does this to new kids at school, especially from foreign countries. She thinks because you're Chinese and the Chinese teacher's daughter, you'll help her. She's also using you as a backup friend - a substitute. There's this new girl Daniela, who Amelia thinks is her new best friend. She thinks that when Daniela stop hanging out with her, she'll have you.   The thing is, Daniela is pretty nice and she probably doesn't know all the trouble she's causing. Belen's old 'best friend' Andrea is doing the same to her.   I also learned that Amelia is seemingly the 'most popular girl in school' because she's mean to everyone. She always passes by the little kids' classrooms and hugs them & stuff. They seem to love her, but now I know it's because they think if they're nice they won't get bullied.   Maybe she WAS using me but I dunno. Belen says that each kid in the entire school has a bad story about Amelia and something she did to them. I said, "Then how was she so nice to me last year?" Then Belen was all like, "She was using you."   I don't know if she's telling the truth. She and Amelia are deadly enemies and she might be making up the whole Amelia story just to get back at her. Although Amelia has been dropping a few signs that she IS using me as a substitute friend.   Sometimes when I walk in, she'll be like "OOOOHHH! CASSANDRA! HI! HOW ARE YOU! C'MON, LOOK AT THIS! WE'RE GONNA HAVE SOOOO MUCH FUN TOGETHER ..."   And other times I'm like, "Hey, Amelia!" and she says, "Oh. Huh? Yeah, hi ..."  Once during PE we had to sit down and on the way to the gym, she was chatting with me in a BBBBFFFF way. But then when we had to partner up she said with Andrea, Daniela and someone else who I forgot.   I don't know what to do. It's just so weird. Even though now I know she MIGHT be using me (I'm not sure if she really is) it just seems WEIRD. Even for a supposed ##### she was my possibly fake best friend for the whole of last year. It's WEIRD to suddenly switch.   I don't even know if this should be happening. We've only just started 5th grade. Doesn't this WEIRD #### start happening around middle school? Thank you, everyone who will help in advance. P.S. Please include flirting advice. - A Girl Who Might Just Lose Her Possibly Fake Best Friend
