Summer is still in full force, with many parts of the country seeing 100-degree days or hotter. As the seasons change (or persist), so do fashion and hairstyles. Typical men’s hairstyles are restricted to short or cropped haircuts, but men today are becoming more expressive with their hair.

One of the common hairstyles men sport during summer is a shaved head. It looks clean and has almost zero daily maintenance. It can even be acceptable in corporate circles. When Michael Rosenbaum shaved his tresses to star as Lex Luthor in Smallville, thousands of men did the same – don’t forget Vin Diesel as well. So if you want to stay cool this summer and still look professionally chic, try the shaved head style.
But if you are reluctant to part with your beautiful man locks, you might want to try cutting it short and styling it with hair gel. Make it a bit longer in front and shorter in the back to keep hair away from the neck. Then style your hair with your fave brand of styling gel, after drying it, so you look like you just got out of bed. This kind of hair was sported by Zac Efron of High School Musical and Robert Pattison of Twilight fame. The style makes for a sexy look and that fits in well at the beach.
Still, if you want to go even longer, you may tie back your hair in a low ponytail and let your long bangs frame your face. It will help you stay cool and look hot in this warm weather. If you want your hair to stay in place, then why not have a stylist braid your hair. When done properly, braided hair makes for a clean, respectable look, as it keeps longer hair away from the face. Also, with proper care, you could keep your hair in braids for a couple of weeks or so, and have a significant other rebraid them as needed.
Be yourself and go with what’s comfortable. Visit a stylist for a consultation and ideas to make you attractive and comfortable in the heat and on the go.
