Looking for a modern hairstyle with a bit of an edge? Tired of the same boring long hairstyle but don’t want to cut your hair? Have you considered trying one of the many stylish but rugged Viking hairstyles that are taking the world by storm?
Of course, most people credit this hairstyle to the popular television show with the same name on the History channel. But where and when did Viking hairstyles originate? There has been much debate whether this trendy new look truly has its origin in Nordic history. Regardless of this, this hairstyle has become quite the popular style choice for men who want a more laid back and rugged look.
What Are Viking Hairstyles?
The best way to describe viking hairstyles is to say that they are a combination of many of today’s modern hairstyles and cuts. In fact, quite a few women have also adopted this trendy look, minus the facial hair, of course.
A viking haircut is essentially a long, mid-length or short hairstyle for men that is usually a shaved side or back, such as an undercut or fade with the longer locks styled into a braid, topknot, man bun or ponytail. Many men also sport a Mohawk or faux hawk as well to give this look even more of an edge. And of course, most men choose for facial hair such as a bushy or epic beard.
This look is quickly becoming mainstream for men of all ages. Some men choose a shorter hairstyle as opposed to long, but either way, this look is taking the male fashion world by storm, both on screen and off.
If you are going for a bad boy look, a viking hairstyle could be exactly what you’re looking for. This style is rugged, yet sexy. Women will swoon over your sexy new look, so why not give it a go. You can always change it up if you don’t like it. As well, you can have fun trying out new looks such as braids or a trendy topknot. Following are some ideas for Viking hairstyles for men.
