Flow Haircut – The Ultimate Men’s Guide for Flow


The flow haircut is a trendy style that is only growing in popularity. It has had many names as it’s been worn by many different groups of people like jocks, preps, stoners, and business people. However it is now known simply as the flow cut. Since this style works with the natural length and texture of your hair it makes the flow a desirable cut for those who want a laid back yet stylized look. Light product is very helpful when trying to style the flow. There are multiple ways to rock the flow haircut and below are some tips and tricks for personalizing your look in style. 


The Flow cut


A blanket term for a haircut that is any length and encourages the hair to do what it wants to without too much interference. Typically people choose to brush it back and out of their face. It’s an easy-going hairstyle that can be worn however you’d prefer.



Short flow


The Short Flow is typically under 3 inches in length and utilizes natural waves or curls to get the desired look of movement. Hair can be the same length on all sides or rocked with a longer top and shorter sides. A person with straight hair can absolutely take on this long. With a little product and a blow dryer you can create the visual of movement in the back. While blow drying, brush the hair back and away from the face. Use a very light product to keep the hair in place for an effortless look that lasts all day. 



Medium flow


The Medium Flow is usually longer than 3 inches in length and can be worn and styled the same way as the short flow. Typically this style is rocked by athletes and skaters. 



Long flow haircut


The Long Flow starts around the bottom of the ears and can be worn at length you desire. For best results it’s recommended to visit your barber for often trims to keep your hair healthy, split ends at bay, and to keep that flow style effortless and natural to your hair. 



Flow with Beard


Any lengthened flow works wonderfully for this style! All it takes to achieve the Flow cut with beard is a distinguished flow haircut with a nice full beard. The contrast of a medium length flow with a lined up, fresh beard is a look that will turn heads.

Flow Hawk


This cut works best with more of a faux hawk that pushes up to keep that look of movement. Pair it with a temple fade for a look that is unique and original.
