Middle Part Hairstyle with Long Curtained Hair Style Guide
This style guide is all about the middle part hairstyle with long curtained hair. Post pictures, advice or tips on how to style the middle part style or what haircut to get for curtains.

As an overall hairstyle, the middle part style (aka "center part" style) was at its popularity peak in the 1990s as guys with straight hair and wavy hair jumped on this hairstyle trend. Not only was the hair parted across the middle of the head, but the hair was left long enough for it to hang down the face and sides of the head, and hence the curtains hairstyle name.

In our middle part hairstyle guide, we've covered this hairstyle in all its varieties. However, this thread will be about long curtained hair with a middle part.

Long hair definition:

Long hair is hair that is over 6 inches in length, from the scalp till the ends. Long hair is a hair length category of which there are 4 categories in total. If you're unsure of your hair's length or what long hair covers, then have a look at our hair length guide.

Who can achieve the long curtained hair look?

The long curtained hair style doesn't just depend on one's hair length but also depends on one's hair type. As per our hair type guide, male hair can be divided into 4 categories: straight hair, wavy hair, coiled hair and kinky hair. It's the first two hair types (i.e. straight hair and wavy hair) that can pull the long curtains hairstyle with a middle part.

Coiled and kinky curly hair need much more length to be able to hang down. In fact, these two aforementioned hair types require so much hair length that, by the time the hair gets to hang down (instead of puff up), the hair is way longer than the face itself and thus loses the stereotypical curtained hair look. To give you an idea, coiled hair and kinky hair (both being curly hair types) will need a shoulder length to have the hair fully hang down.

Pictures of long hair with curtains and a middle part:

While the curtain middle part style was indeed at its peak in the 1990s, it's still a hairstyle that is used and hasn't faded into oblivion as has happened with other men's hairstyles. In fact, we would not be surprised if the middle part hairstyle was to become quite popular again as it has happened to other men's hairstyles like the slicked back Undercut and the messy hair style (the latter also being a 1990s hairstyle which was rejuvenated a couple of years ago)!

For some reason, soccer players in Europe have had a "thing" for the long hair look with curtains. Alessandro Matri, Radamel Falcao and Sergio Ramos are 3 examples of soccer players who have worn the middle part curtained hairstyle recently. Incidentally, soccer players tend to wear men's hair accessories and especially thin headbands during training sessions as well as during soccer matches.

So, for those of you guys with straight hair or wavy hair wanting to grow your locks long, here's a picture set of the middle part long curtained hair style!

More pictures of long hair guys with middle part hairstyles, including Sergio Ramos!
Here are some more pictures of long hair with a middle part style. Among the dudes in the pictures below, we have soccer player Sergio Ramos who plays for Real Madrid as a defender. While the haircuts of Sergio Ramos have been short and dapper (albeit a bit experimental) for the last couple of years, he did have long hair in the mid-2000s.

As per his fellow soccer colleagues, Ramos would gel his middle parted long hair and loosely secure it with a headband (see below) to keep the hair somewhat in place. Unfortunately and despite the "aesthetic" option of wearing a headband, his long hair would go all over the place during matches when jumping to head the ball, with his gelled locks hitting adversaries in the face and eyes (which lead to players complaining of Sergio Ramos' long hair and how he should have it tied tightly in a ponytail and not loose with just a headband). The rumor at the time was that Sergio Ramos would intentionally leave his gelled long hair loose so as to scare his adversaries when jumping for the ball. This trick has been used in other sports, by the way.

I guess you can imagine the horror of having another dude's sweaty gelled hair hitting your eyes and face. But, hey, it's Sergio Ramos, right? Big Grin

RE: Middle Part Hairstyle with Long Curtained Hair Style Guide
My hair looks exactly like Paolo Maldini's hair when it's damp
but when it's dry it turns into frizzy cotton candy.

I used to have pretty sweet natural curls but they're pretty much all gone now when it's dry. How can I get my hair more like Paolo Maldini's? I need something to keep my hair hydrated and maybe something to make it a little curlier.

I'm sorry my account is new so I can't post any pictures.
