One of the most popular questions that men come across is choosing a hairstyle or a haircut based on their hair type. Your hair type determines everything and if you mess up, chances are even your barber may not be able to give you a good hairstyle that blends well with your personality.
There are a few tricks that will come in handy and let you achieve that perfect look. This is how you can do it right:
1. When You Have Thick Hair
Thick hair for men is sure a blessing and is characterised by its fullness. It’s one hair type that’s envied but when it comes to managing or styling it, we guess it’s a tad bit difficult. Managing thick hair is about maintenance and one of the best ways to look good is by opting either for layers or rocking a stylish pompadour. If you are able to master the man bun, go for it!

2. When You Have Straight Hair
Straight hair is the easiest to manage and the appearance can be easily tamed. But even straight hair has its own pros and cons. The biggest frustration one can have is that straight hair lays flat on the face. The good news is that there will be a lot of products that will come to your disposal and let you deal with it.
Speaking of a hairstyle, you can opt for longish hair, which means ear to the shoulder or you can try out swept-back style as it can help you minimise the tangled locks.

3. When You Have Wavy Hair
Wavy hair looks quite stylish and retains that extra volume, making your hair type quite versatile. Hair conditioners as a product can help men with wavy hair and ensure tangle-free mane that stands out. It helps you style it the way you want to.
For you, it is recommended that you go for messy hairstyles or sweeping side parting. You can also make messy crops and keep them short. Even textured quiffs can be your go-to hairstyle.
4. When You Have Unruly Hair
Unruly hair is like a confused hair type we would say. It has a rough layer but is mostly flat or straight. The best way to make it look managed and presentable is to have a finished appearance. You can opt for medium length hairstyles or textured short hair on the back and sides.
To make your hair look disciplined, take the help of creams that are oil-based so it can add some moisture to your hair and reduce its frizz.

5. When You Have Thin Hair
A receding hairline or thin hair, in general, are prone to hair fall which makes the hair look quite lifeless. It can get difficult to add volume but basic precautions can help you here. Ask your barber for a blunt chop or go for an advanced french or a buzz cut.
Avoid cleansing your hair from the scalp and instead gently exfoliate it twice a week. You can use a hairdryer but do it upside down as it adds more volume to the roots and creates an illusion of thick hair.
