As of 2010, the most popular medium-length hairstyles for men tend toward low-maintenance, casual cuts that work with a man's hair rather than fighting against it. Whether sleek and straight or wild and wavy, embracing a man's natural hair tendencies can be sexy and showcase his personality.

Classic Coif

This classic style is great for men who need to adapt to a variety of events. Sexy, professional and versatile, this style can be parted at one side or in the middle, finger-combed to emphasise texture or tousled to create a more casual look. The other advantage to the classic coif? It's an extremely low-maintenance style. As of 2010, celebrities such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Ben Affleck all sported this classic look.

Surfer Shag

Made popular by surfers the world over, the shag is a layered style that requires minimal maintenance. Longer layers and a tiny bit of hair gel, hair wax or pomade is all that is needed to create this relaxed, casual and sexy, beach-inspired look. As of 2010, celebrities Josh Holloway, Matthew McConaughey and Owen Wilson were sporting the surfer style.

Carefree Curls

Embracing natural waves and curls can mean a carefree and sexy medium-length look. From loose waves like Jude Law to an afro like Lenny Kravitz, there are many ways to personalise a curly cut and display a man's personal style. Using a defrizzer/curl enhancer can significantly reduce frizz and give wavy or curly hair that controlled and defined style. As of 2010, celebrities Adrian Grenier, Corbin Bleu and Chris Cornell all embraced their wild and wavy side.

Bed-Head Hair

Hollywood stars are sporting tousled and textured cuts that give bed head a sexy new meaning. While this deliberately messy hairdo looks like it took moments to create, it is deceptively time-consuming and requires a strong gel, pomade or styling paste to maintain volume and the textured shape. In 2010, famous Bed Heads included Robert Pattinson and Kevin Bacon.

"Emo" Hair

Short for emotional, "Emo" has become a movement in rock music that has inspired both fashion and hairstylists alike. "Emo"-inspired hairstyles include a shorter back with longer fringe, combed forward to partially cover the face, most frequently one eye. While predominantly dyed black, "emo" cuts can be personalised by adding asymmetrical lines, spikes or creative splashes of unnatural hair colour. In 2010, celebrities Criss Angel, Jared Leto and Pete Wentz all showcased their "emo" sense of style.
