Asian people's hair is generally highly versatile and can be shaped and moulded into a variety of styles. East-Asian men generally have straight, soft-textured hair, which makes them perfect candidates for straight or choppy hairstyles. South-Asian men tend to have thicker, wavier hair that can easily be braided or texturised.

Short, Wavy Hairstyle

South-Asian people's hair, particularly Indian people's hair, can sometimes be wavy in nature. Wavy or curly hair can have a tendency to become frizzy, and when wavy hair is long it can become difficult to manage. South-Asian men who have naturally wavy hair can get a short, wavy style. To minimise frizz, apply texturizer or hair gel to the hair, and comb it through to distribute evenly. You can also use a pick to create more volume or shape the hair as desired.

Spiky Do

Asian men with straight hair may want to go for spikes. Spikes can be achieved by using plenty of hair gel and shaping the hair by hand or using heat instruments such as a flatiron. To create spikes, determine the direction that you want the spikes to go in. Comb the hair and add hair gel accordingly. Shape the spikes and let the gel dry for approximately 10 minutes. Use hairspray and blow dry on a low setting for about two minutes for extra hold.

Short and Choppy Cut

Many Asian men like to wear their hair long in the front but short in the back. This usually creates an interesting "choppy" or "messy" effect that many famous Asian men, particularly pop singers, enjoy wearing. To achieve this look, have a stylist cut the hair in the back of your head at least a couple of inches shorter than the hair in the front. Apply pomade throughout the hair for hold and flexibility.
