Informal and Casual Mens Hairstyles - Pictures and Guide
For many young and no so young men, a great styling option are casual men's hairstyles. These particular hair styles include messy hairstyles, shaggy cuts, out-of-bed hair, volume styles and big hair. Basically, anything that fall in the informal side and the kind of hairstyle you would not be allowed into an office Big Grin

This thread will discuss all casual mens hairstyles. Feel free to post pictures, give or ask for advice and post some input on the following. It will also be a good idea to have a look at our men's hair type guide from the book, The Men's Hair Book, as I will be mentioning the different hair types for each of the styles posted.

Messy wavy hair

Medium length wavy hair only takes a couple of shakes to the locks to mess it and give a casual look!

Shaggy hair

Shaggy hair is achieved by cutting the hair in layers and many times using a hair straightener to create individual locks and enhance the messy-but-sharp look. A great hair straightener for this look is this hair straightener and then, for defining the locks to achieve the messy-sharp look, you can use some hair wax or hair gel (see our recommended men's hair products discussion for more on these products).

Long hair

Long hair can be as casual as it comes. When left loose and dangling, the lengthy locks give a very carefree look that can look quite good on certain dudes.

Man Bun

The man bun is a made up term which is many times incorrectly used to describe, what we call here, a ponybun. All this is is just a style for long hair, tie your hair and instead of a regular ponytail, you do a bun or do a half bun and half tail. While a bun in women is seen as a formal hairstyle, a bun in men is usually seen as informal, especially the modern bun variations like the man bun or the pony bun, as shown in the following pictures:

Men's hair with volume

Hair that has volume is casual and eye grabbing. All you need is a good hair dryer (read the discussion in the link) and some hair wax or hair mousse. A trendy mens hairstyle with volume is the Brush Up which male celebrities such as Zayn Malik have put on the spot for 2013 and 2014! Likewise, curly hair has volume naturally, so coiled curly hair and kinky curly hair in the form of Afro hairstyles and natural hairstyles can look very casual and cool.

RE: Informal and Casual Mens Hairstyles - Pictures and Guide
Well i myself prefer more classic looks like the style guides you guys posted on the side swept and the slicked back among others but for sure a good casual hairstyles can do good. It just depends on the settings and if your hair type allows for it.
What i find though is that many guys royally screw up their casual styles SPECIALLY the one shaggy haircut of Zyzz. It is so easy yet every friday night when we leave the barbershop and hit the town we see all these geezers with bad hair and the shaggy looking more like someone took a dump on their head.
I think you need more of these geezers visiting this site as it really can save them from ever on looking like proper clowns.

Messy styles

Some of the tousled and messy styles of several male celebrities. The hair may or may not look natural and products to shape the out of bed look can be used.

Casual curly hair

Curly hair at medium lengths can be left to express its own nature. Make sure that your hair is properly moisturized and that you are using a good styling cream (see this one in the link) to avoid frizz and flyaway hairs. This is very important as curly hair will react quickly (and badly) to sub standard care and grooming!

By the way, remember that wavy hair falls under the term "curly hair" as per the official guide on male hair types.

RE: Informal and Casual Mens Hairstyles - Pictures and Guide
I mean when done right, casual hairstyles look so cool. Its importance when going to work to do the casual hair styling correctly so it is more like half casual and half formal. I see that a lot at work where you tousle the hair a little, use some wax and a dryer and control the volume and messiness of the style. Modern and cool plus these casual styles are becoming more accptable in the workplace anyway.

A guy who can rock a casual hairstyle is Adam Lambert. He is always changing his hair in casual ways but keeps the modern edge on all of them although I dislike how he always has highlights or some stupid dyed color on his hair. He usually goes from brush up hairstyles to pompadours to quiffs.
Since lots of pics have already been posted in the thread to show the styles, here are some pictures of Adam Lambert hairstyles:

Posting below some of Cesc Fabregas hairstyles.

Messy hairstyle
Styled with hair gel or hair wax, just tousle the hair at a short to medium length & you're ready to go.

[Image: cesc+fabregas+12.jpg]

[Image: cesc+fabregas+19.jpg]


Side fringe
Lightly part the hair so an angled fringe is left on the forehead. Give it a wet look style like in the picture of Cesc Fabregas hairstyle below with some styling cream like this great one.

[Image: cesc+fabregas+14.jpg]


Bangs
Bangs is always a cool mens hairstyle to wear but be caregul with the hair growing too long too fast so next time you try some bangs on the forelock hair you end up not seeing fully what is ahead of you Big Grin for styling some bangs, use the same styling cream as I recommend above for the side fringe.

[Image: cesc06-thumb-400x600-2116.jpg]


Casual side part
Casual & messy side parts are trendy & modern. The cool thing about the side part is that it is so easy to do & that you can use any hair product you want, including hair wax & hairstyling cream - you will get different textures though so look at our hairstyles & hair products guide to match each styling texture!

Metro mullet
The metro mullet hairstyle was made popular by Cristiano Ronaldo & was named by Rogelio Samson of bestseller The Men's Hair Book.

Messy hair
Messy hair has also been one of Cristiano Ronaldo hairstyles. He has had his messy hair with his natural curly hair type.

Alice band
Alice bands are a form of headbands that are usually used by women but which are more & more used by men as a male hair accessory. An Alice band helps to pull the hair back which is usually a medium length to long length.

[Image: 1289935510_extras_albumes_0.jpg]


Side squares
The side squares haircut is a popular football players hairstyle. It is an informal style that can be a bit extreme in how it looks Big Grin the haircut for the side squares is simply to clip the sides of the head very short & leave the rest of the hair short but not clipped. In the past, football players like Ashley Cole & Sergio Ramos have got this casual mens haircut.

Faux hawk
A modern & trendy casual style is the faux hawk hairstyle. With a faux hawk haircut, the hair in the top of the head is styled to the center so it makes a small crest like a pyramid. It is very easy to style & all you need is either hair wax - this hair wax goes great - or hair gel - this hair gel does also go great.
Notice in the first picture below an actual metro mullet in David Beckham's faux hawk hairstyle!
