Why Are They Unique

It is not that Asian men’s hairstyles are entirely different from other hairstyles, but they are designed keeping in mind the texture and thickness of the hair. Asian men generally have straight hair, which suits many popular hairstyles.

Let’s take a look at some examples of hairstyles that look amazing on Asian men:

How to Pick the Right Hairstyle

Face Shape

Your face shape directly impacts what kind of haircut would suit your face. Here’s a quick rundown of different face shapes:

Asian Man With Modern Haircut
asian haircuts for round faces male
asian men's hairstyle for round face shape
asian undercut

  • Round Face: Go for hairstyles with more volume on top and stay away from an excessive volume on the sides.
  • Oval Face: Do not go for fades on the sides or high hairstyles like mohawks or faux hawks.
  • Square Face: Stay away from hairstyles with short bangs.
  • Heart-Shaped Face: Look for balanced hairstyles on all sides and avoid high hairstyles.


As we’ve mentioned, Asian hair is usually thicker and stands up straighter. If you cut it very short near the hairline, it will stand straight at it and look very awkward.

If you’ve been experiencing hair fall near the hairline and want to restore it to its former glory, try natural DHT blockers.

Avoid Thinning Shears

Since the hair is thicker, it can be tempting to get the thinning shears and chop away the excessive volume. Don’t do this as it may make your hair lose shape and appear very thin.

Ask your barber to use scissors to slowly cut the volume through gradual layers rather than in one fell swoop with thinning shears.

Go For Full Bangs

Thick hair doesn’t suit wispy or thin bangs, so use the volume of your hair and get full bangs if your hairstyle calls for a fringe.


Styling Asian hair is not the same as styling other kinds of hair. You need to choose a style that suits your face and one you can maintain every day.

Go through our list of Asian hairstyles for men and find what you’re looking for.


What hairstyle should I get as an Asian man?

Consider your face shape before settling on one, but comb-overs and undercuts look good with Asian hair.

The sides are usually buzzed or faded, with more volume towards the top. You get clean lines on the sides, while the top keeps it interesting.

You can use mousse or wax to add more definition to the hairstyle.

How do Asian boys style their hair?

Styling can be a pain for Asian boys as it sticks up straight when short and is very stubborn. Asian boys style their hair straight out of the shower to make it easier. Just towel dry a little and use pomade or mousse to style it.

How do Asian men get fluffy hair?

It depends on what kind of texture you are looking for, but the best way is to use a hairdryer after a shower in the opposite direction of the usual parting. This adds some texture and makes your hair appear fluffier.

You can also try a different conditioner or use a hair mask before your shower to try and make your hair fluffier.

How do Asians put their hair down?

The thing about Asian hair is that it will stick up straight like the spikes on a porcupine if you cut it short. So, the first step is never to cut it short. Always leave enough length for the hair to lay down.

If your hair is stubborn and can’t put it down even though it is long enough, you need to use wax or pomade to put it down or slick it back.

What hair products should Asians use?

The kind of hair products you need depends on your hair and your individual needs, but a good shampoo and conditioner are the most basic products you need.

You might need hair wax, gel, pomade, or clay based on your style. Keeping some hair wax or pomade in the house is always a good idea if your hair is sticking up and you need something to hold it down.

How do you cut Asian men’s hair?

When it comes to cutting Asian men’s hair, it is important to understand the unique texture and style preferences of this demographic.

With different hair types and growth patterns, knowing how to cut Asian men’s hair can be a valuable skill for any hairstylist.

By following specific techniques and using the right tools, stylists can create various trendy and traditional looks that cater to the individual needs of their Asian male clients.

How do you style thick Asian hair?

When it comes to styling thick Asian hair, it is important to consider the natural texture and density of the hair.

Different techniques and products can achieve a desired look, such as layering, texturizing, and styling products like pomade or wax.

It is also important to consult with a professional hairstylist who is experienced in working with thick Asian hair to get personalized advice and recommendations.

Overall, finding the right styling routine can help enhance the natural beauty of thick Asian hair and create a unique and stylish look.
