Asian men have extremely versatile hairs, however, people don’t know much about Asian male hairstyles, and think they don’t have many options to choose from, but that’s a lie.
Today, we’re going to take a look at various different hairstyles & haircuts for Asian men and give you some tips and tricks on how to style them. Let’s begin.
Trendy Hairstyles for Asian Men
Check out these popular Asian guy hairstyles that are trending on Instagram!
1. Classic Middle Part
One of the most common Asian hairstyles for Men is the middle parted short straight haircut, and it’s very easy to achieve. For this one, you’ll have to let the top part of your hair grow longer than the bottom part to create that “bowl” cut style.
Then simply part your hair in half down the middle and use hair creme or muse to make it stay like that for the rest of the day. You can grab a little strand of hair to fall down your forehead for a little twist.
2. Bowl Cut
Haircuts for Asian men don’t have to be boring. You can cut your hair in a bowl shape, meaning the top part being rounder and longer than the bottom part of your hair.
To give it a twist to the common hairstyle, ask your barber to cut down the bottom part into a faded effect to really contrast the top from the bottom side of your hair.
3. Soft Waves
Like we said, Asian men have extremely versatile hair, and although it is very thin and straight for the most part, you can wave it to give it some texture and volume.
We recommend you to wave the top part of your hair with a small curling iron and then broke down the curls with your hands to give it more of a messy hairstyle.
4. Messy Middle Part with Long Bangs
Again, this hairstyle gives it a little twist to the regular middle part haircut. To achieve it, follow the instructions we mentioned back in Asian male hairstyles 1 but make sure not to take the top part of your hair to the back.
Instead, grab those frontal pieces and with a hair texturizing product shake it up until you get that “messy” look and let them fall on your forehead and there you have it!
5. Shaggy Hair
Although most Asian men prefer most casual haircuts, this red color really brings up attention to your face and can look really good. Of course, you’ll have to bleach your hair first and then apply a bright red hair dye.
As to the kpop haircut, it’s pretty similar to a regular bowl cut, with the difference that this one is longer (it covers the forehead) and should be long enough to give you some bangs.
If you’re looking for unique Asian guy haircuts, then this one’s for you. To get a mullet you need to let the top and bottom part of your hair grow, but make sure to cut down the sides so the difference between the two is visible enough.
Whether you want to leave the front part of your hair long enough to cover up your forehead or not, it’s up to you, however, the true mullet haircut looks exactly like the picture we’re showing you.
7. Faded on The Sides and Long on The Top
Although this hairstyle sounds similar to the mullet, it isn’t. This particular haircut for Asian men is much shorter than a regular mullet, and the top front part of your hair should be short enough that your forehead is exposed.
Make sure to cut down just the sides of your hair and leave the top and the bottom part with the same cut. To style, it simply adds some hair gel or muse to leave everything in place.
8. Slicked Back Hair
Give some texture to your hair by dying it blonde with subtle highlights. Again, you’ll have to bleach it first and then dye it. As to how to achieve the haircut, you’ll have to let your hair grow and cut it only on the bottom and side parts, without touching the front.
To style it, simply push your hair back using either hair mousse or texturizing, you can help yourself by blow drying it as well and combine it to get the style on the picture.
9. Hard Part Hair
Asian hairstyles for men have many variants and this is one of them. To get this type of hairstyle all you have to do is let one side of your hair grow longer than the other (which one is up to you).
Remember to trim down the shorter side, but not so much that you can see your scalp and then style the longer part so it falls to the side in a careless way.
10. Short Curly Hair
Believe it or not, curls are a hairstyle option for Asian men, and they’re very easy to achieve, all you have to do is grab a thin curly iron and curl only the top part of your hair.
To really bring out the contrast between the top and bottom part, ask your barber to cut down the sides of your hair and then style the top part so it stands out, showing off the curls.
11. Short Messy Haircut
If you have short hair and want to style it a different way, you can try this Asian male hairstyle. First, part your hair down the middle (a little bit more to the side than usual) and then grab hair gel or hair m0usse to style the longer side of your hair.
Make sure to mess it up with your hands first to really achieve that “careless” look and then grab random strands of hair to create the spikes, make sure some fall on your forehead as well.
To get this Asian hairstyle you will have to let the top part of your hair grow longer than the back, however, make sure your barber doesn’t cut too much of the sides and back of your hair, you want to have enough volume that your scalp won’t show.
Then simply push the top part of your hair back and up to create this specific hairstyle, you can even use hairspray to make sure it stays up throughout the whole day.
13. Japanese Style
If you’re feeling risky, you can try wearing hair accessories such as bandanas. First, make sure to wash and dry out your hair to then apply hair gel throughout to create the messy look.
Finally, tie up a bandana around your forehead and pull out some pieces of hair to the front so they can fall down the bandana and create the illusion of bangs.
14. Asian Man Bun
This man bun hairstyle is easy and quick to do. Simply grab your hair and push it back (you can help yourself with a comb if necessary).
Tie it up high enough that sits and the back of your head but not on your neck and then twist your hair into a bun. You can later pull out some strands of hair so it doesn’t seem as tight, or you can leave it as it is.
15. Short Hairstyle for Asian Men
Of course we had to include this classic into the list. Achieving this Asian hairstyle for men is very simple since all you have to do is ask your barber for a cut on the sides and back of your hair, leaving the top slightly longer than the rest.
Remember you don’t want the contrast between the top and low part of your hair to be extremely visible, so don’t let the top part of your hair too long.
16. Middle Part with Exposed Forehead
This one is also a classic haircut for Asian guys, but unlike the previous one, the top part of your hair must be long enough that it covers the shorter part on the sides.
Then all you have to do is part your hair down the middle and style the front pieces of your hair one to each side, exposing your forehead. You can help yourself with some hair gel to make sure your hairstyle stays the same during the day.
17. Taper Fade with Longer Front Part
If you’re looking for a low maintenance Asian male hairstyle then this one’s for you. Ask your barber to cut down the sides and back of your hair low enough that you can see your scalp but don’t touch the front part.
Then you can highlight style it with some hair texturizing product to give it some shape and that’s it! However, considering how thin your hair is, it’s very likely it will stand up on its own.
18. Pink Colored Hair
Another great way to give the classic bowl o round cut a twist is to get this Asian inspired hairstyle. First, you’ll have to bleach it and then dye it pink to get this exact same colour.
Afterwards, make sure to part your hair down the middle and mess it around at the top with your own hands. You can also ask your barber for a subtle undercut to bring out the difference between the top and low part of your hair.
19. Buzz Cut
Getting this hairstyle is extremely easy, all you have to do is shave down your hair evenly throughout your head (but not completely so you don’t go bald), just enough that you can see your own scalp.
If you want to maintain this haircut remember to cut it down regularly, but if you don’t, you can let it grow into one of the various hairstyles for Asian men we’ve mentioned above.
20. Top Knot
This is a variation of the classic Asian men’s long haircut. This time you’ll have to shave down the sides, back part and a little section of the front part of your hair altogether, leaving only the top long enough to grow out.
Once it’s long enough to put into a bun, simply push your hair back and tie it up in a bun, leaving enough hair untied so it falls down the back of your head.
21. Brown Highlights
To get this Asian hairstyle ask your barber for a low cut on the sides but leaving enough hair on the top of your head, long enough that you can see the difference between them.
You can even get some subtle brown highlights to bring out more texture into your natural black hair. Then simply style the top part with some hair gel and push it slightly to the side.
22. Short Round Cut with Bangs
Similar to the regular bowl cut, this Asian men’s hairstyle is also a classic, but with a twist. Instead of leaving your hair too long, ask your barber to cut it down, but leave enough hair on the top front part to create bangs.
As to how to style it, help yourself with a blow dryer and push your hair to the front until it covers your forehead with your bangs, style the back part with your own hands for texture and you’re done.
23. Straight Long Hair
Last, but not least, try growing up your hair until it reaches down to your elbows and then part it down the middle, with the part being a little bit off to one side.
Then simply shake it up with some hair texturizing product in order to give it some shape and you’re ready to go! If your hair is naturally straight you won’t have any problem re-creating this Asian male hairstyle and if you have curly hair, you can help yourself with a blow dryer.
