“If you want to get a new look, get a new hairstyle”
No change in wardrobe needed. A new hairstyle is a convenient and inexpensive way to revamp old things according to your changing mood or preferences. If you have wanted to know hairstyle ideas for your hair type, face cut, how to look after your hair and how to add some style with hats, then here is our complete guide to hair care and hairstyles for Indian men.
It all starts with hair care
Hair is a fragile part of the body in the sense that any damage or any benefit they get from your activity shows up pretty quickly. Your head may start getting dry and itchy and hair may start falling, or your hair start feeling strong and shiny and you’ll notice the difference. Looking after them shouldn’t be a very difficult task then.
Follow the simple routine of weekly oiling your hair preferably with coconut or olive oil, shampooing twice a week with a mild shampoo followed by a conditioner (unless you are aiming for a look that needs slightly rough or disheveled hair because a conditioner will soften the hair down). For hair more on the dry and frizzy side, they can benefit from a hair mask every 2-3 weeks.

Select a hairstyle according to your face type and profession
You should select a hairstyle that suits your profession and doesn’t make you look out of the place and also something that suits your face shape (if you want to identify your face shape, you may refer to this post by menshairstylesnow). College students might be having the most leeway here, as school students and professional men have certain limitations in terms of flaunting style. But that doesn’t mean there is any dearth of looks to be that debonair!
Here are some quick pointers about how to choose a hairstyle –
Hairstyles for curly hair
Curly hair men have to take some extra care to maintain their hair as they are more prone to getting frizzy and dry then other hair types and tangled curls can lend an untidy look. This simply means oiling and conditioning regularly and nothing fancy. Regardless, curls offer some really good looking hairstyle options for men as they can also keep some length without their hair looking really long. A hair styling gel might be needed here to hold the curls in place.

Hairstyles for short hair
Almost a necessity for students and professionals in most places is to have short hair. They have their own benefits owing to easy hair care, but if you have particularly wanted to keep long hair, this strictness can be a bummer. Short hair still we feel offer many stylish hairstyle options for men. By tweaking your spikes a bit or adding some side fade, you can make the hairstyle rock.

Use Hats to add some personality
Caps or hats are an instant way of showing your allegiance to a brand or idea you belong to. More so, they are an accessory that anybody can add and find something that suits them. And they make an impression without tweaking much of your attire. Baseball cap, fedora, flat cap, beanie, etc., they are plenty of styles to choose from and you are sure to find something to go with your style. Store it properly so that it doesn’t crumble and lose shape, and don’t wear it sideways (gone are the days of 90s fashion).
