Do you prefer your hair long and lovely or short and sweet? Here are two of our favorite men's hairstyles from the runway, now your job is to choose between them...

Men's extra long hair

The hairstyle: Not just long, this is extra long! These are some swishy, silky locks that look effortless, fashion-forward and daring. The center part is strict, while the hair is left loose and free.

The style: With long hair, it's important not to let your look fall into a cliché of "surfer dude." Keep your outfit crisp and tailored, to make a contrast with the free-spirited nature of your hair.

What the editors say: To keep your long hair shiny and sleek, use a serum after washing and towel-drying your hair. The Liss Control Plus from the Tecni.ART collection is ideal for smoothing frizz and flyaways. Follow with a spritz of the Tecni.ART Natural Finish, a lightweight finishing spray.

Men's short hair

The hairstyle: Casual and contemporary, this short style might look effortless, but there's nevertheless some careful styling around the front section, smoothed up and away from the forehead.

The style: This short cut is so versatile that it can work with any look, from professional to after-work. Style it using a versatile paste such as the Wild Stylers Depolish, which allows you to change your look throughout the day without washing your hair.

What the editors say: Men with short hair usually appreciate the lack of hassle involved: it dries quickly, doesn't take ages to style... But this isn't an excuse to forget the basics of haircare! L'Oréal Professionnel's Energic shampoo both cleanses the scalp and strengthens the hair using ice mint and ginseng to refresh and energize you every morning.
