When you think about Men's Shaggy Hairstyles, you probably think about the sixties and seventies, but this is no longer true. Celebrities, such as Ashton Kutcher, with his classic shaggy do, have been sporting the look for quite some time now, but the good news is, you don't need a celebrity income or lifestyle to make it work for you.

From models with perfectly styled locks, to actors such as Ryan Eggold, with his bed-head style, there is a style that will work with your hair and demands. After all, not many of us can get away with turning up for work looking like we just got up! Whether your hair is straight or curly, thick or fine, short, medium or long, there is a style for you. And if you need to look conservative for work, but like to let go at the weekends, many of the shorter shaggy cuts can be adapted for the office, giving a more professional look.

How to Get Shaggy Hair

Given the variety of styles available, when you go to the salon, it's probably a good idea to take a picture of the hair-do you want, just in case your stylist and you have radically different opinions about what you want.

However, be realistic. If you have short, fine hair, you won't necessarily end up with the same look as a man with thick curly tresses, so it's a good idea to discuss with your stylist the best styles for your hair type. Another important consideration of your face shape. Again, this is something to discuss with your stylist.

Once you've had your styling - and don't be alarmed if your hairdresser comes at you with a razor, it's quite normal for this sort of cut - you need to get the right styling products to maintain your new trendy look.

Get a good wax or gel, that isn't too strong, since your hair should be free to swing a little. The maintenance requirements will vary on how long your hair is, but typically a trim every six to eight weeks should be enough.

How much time you are willing to spend on your hair will depend on your wishes. From simply letting it dry naturally, with a little mouse or wax, to blow-drying and pomade to add shine, or straightening it to change its character. But that is one of the advantages of the shaggy style, as it is so flexible.

With all the advantages to this style, this is a good time to start checking out the celebrity hair magazines, and updating your look. It might take a little time to decide on your first cut, but after that, you too can join the ranks of celebrities with great hair - and not have to invest too much time in keeping it that way. If you need anymore persuasion, just glancing through a women's magazine will show you that men's shaggy hairstyles are here to stay!
