Long Asymmetrical Boys' Hairstyles

The long asymmetrical hairstyle for boys offers a lot of room for creativity and self-expression, which has been relatively limited for males in the past. These looks can range from funky and artistic to casual, and often work well for those who embrace the emo style. Unlike other cuts for boys, these styles may require extensive styling in the morning.

Ian Watkins Scene Hair

Ian Watkins is the singer of the alternative Welsh band called Lostprophets, and he made the asymmetrical look popular among many teenage boys. This hairstyle is long in the front and short in the back. The front is parted on the left side, about 2 inches from the centre. The fringe are long and layered, with some strands hanging just beneath his eyes and others going past his chin. On the right, the strands reach down to his shoulder. In the back, the hair is around 3 inches long and teased with styling gel.

Billie Joe Armstrong Punk Hair

Billy Joel from Green Day popularised this punk-inspired hairstyle. The hair is parted on one side and cut so that the fringe and top of the hair are kept long while the sides and back are cut short. Depending on how long you want it, you could keep the fringe between 3 to 5 inches long, while the back and sides should be around 2 inches long. To style, dampen the hair and apply a liberal amount of styling gel, pulling the hair up and outward. For the fringe, create several separate strands with the gel and pull them in front of one eye.

Dramatic Side Sweep

This hairstyle combines both short and long hair to get the best of both worlds. The hair is parted dramatically on the left side, about 3 inches from the centre, and combed to the right. The front-right section is secured with a clip, and the left and back of the hair is buzzed to about an inch and a half. The front-right portion is combed in front of the right eye and layered to fall beneath the nose.

Long Asymmetric Bob

This hairstyle is layered so that the upper portions of the hair are shorter and the underside is longer. The longest strands are cut to shoulder-length at the back and sides, while the top has shorter strands of about 2 or 3 inches. The fringe are parted to the right. At the right side of the fringe, the hair is cut in a choppy style just beneath the eyes. On the left, the hair is cut to be about chin length. This style may require straightening for the desired effect.
