Compared to having short hair, one of the main pros to having long hair is the variety and trendy hairstyle options you have to choose from. Of course in most cases this requires more maintenance/attention, which results in more time spent in the morning to create your awesome look. Some of these hairstyles are very simple and can be executed in a under a minute, while some may take up to 10minutes to achieve your desired look. The following are 25 most popular long hairstyles for men
1.Man Braid Hairstyle
