What is flowing hair?

Flowing hair is a hairstyle where the hair is cut short on the sides and longer on the top of the head. It gives a visual effect of a gutter-like pattern, which is also the reason for the name. The hairstyle can be straight, wavy or curly according to desire and personal style.

Flowing hair is a versatile hairstyle that can be styled in many different ways and create a formal or casual look as desired.

An advantage of the flowing hairstyle is its versatility and the possibility of styling it in different ways. It can look both formal with a sharp look or more casual with a little texture at the top of the hair. However, a disadvantage of this hairstyle can be the frequent need for trimming to maintain the precise look, as well as the wear and tear of styling products on the hair over time.

Hairstyles for flowing hair

Do you have flowing hair and are you looking for a hairstyle? Then we can help you! We recommend that you visit your local hairdresser to get the best guidance for your hair. You can also get help from your hairdresser to find the right products that suit your particular hair type.

A classic short cut style with texture is often a good choice for boys with flowing hair. If your child needs a more playful or unique style, then you should definitely take inspiration from some of the fun children's hairstyles with longer bangs or obliquely cut curls on the sides. Regardless of which style you choose, your local hairdresser will be able to give you tips and tricks for styling and maintaining your hair at home.

Men's hairstyles with flowing hair

Short and simple look:

A short and simple flowing hair look does not require much maintenance. It looks stylish even with minimal styling. Visit your hairdresser regularly to keep it neatly cut.

Slicked back style with flowing hair:

This hairstyle is ideal for both formal and casual gatherings. This slicked back style makes a sophisticated first impression, especially when styled with flowing hair.

  • Use a quality gel to create the desired look
  • Don't forget to visit your hairdresser often for trimming and maintenance

Medium length top and short sides:

This is a trendy look that works well for most face shapes. A medium length top combined with shorter sides can be both elegant and sporty.

  • Ask your hairdresser for help in finding the right cut
  • Consider using hair wax or pomade for added durability

Children's hairstyles with flowing hair

One of the most popular children's hairstyles with flowing hair is the undercut with a braided top. This hairstyle creates a cool and modern style for boys who want to have some length on top of their hair. Your hairdresser can help you style the perfect braid to suit your child's personal style.

High topknot on short hair is also a great way to style flowing hair. This look works best for boys with shorter hair but still want a trendy and unique look. Your hairdresser can cut the hair to the right shape and length to achieve this style.

Buzz cut with side pattern has been a popular trend among children's flowing hairstyles for years now. If your child loves the extraordinary look, your hairdresser can easily add different designs or patterns of your choice using trimmers and painting techniques - finally give them the green light!

How to style flowing hair

Frizzy hair can be difficult to style, but with the right hair products and techniques, your locks will look amazing in no time. Firstly, it is important to choose a suitable shampoo and conditioner that does not dry out your hair. Also use a good leave-in conditioner to add extra moisture.

When styling your wavy hair, avoid heavy styling products such as wax or gel . Instead, you can use light styling creams or mousses to add volume and definition to your curls without weighing them down. Here we can definitely recommend our curling cream , which is a light curling cream that helps to give slightly wavy hair and defines the curls.

You can also experiment with different hairstyles like short buzzcuts or longer curly hairstyles for a unique look.

Products for frizzy hair

Using the right products is essential to getting the best out of your flowing hair. Here are some recommended products and tips:

  • Use a volumizing shampoo and conditioner specially designed for fine hair.
  • Invest in a good wax or gel that can hold the hairstyle all day.
  • Consider using a salt water spray for added texture and volume.

We can highly recommend our salt water spray , which gives a medium hold, at the same time it is both heat protective and UV protective, so you take care of your hair when you use heat styling. 

With these simple steps, you will be able to give your flowing hair more fullness, volume and structure. Also always remember to protect your hair from damage from hot styling tools with a heat protection spray before use.

Tips and tricks for styling flowing hair

When styling your flowing hair, it is important to choose a hairstyle that suits your face shape. If you have an oval face, you can advantageously choose a hairstyle with shorter sides and longer tops. For more volume at the roots, you can blow dry the hair upwards with low heat. Use your fingers instead of a comb or brush to avoid static electricity and create a more natural look. These simple tricks will help you style your flowing hair in a way that suits your personal style and keeps it healthy and well-groomed.

Flowing hair and personal style

Flowing hair can be a challenge, but with the right hairstyle and styling, it can become a stylish statement. For boys, a short and structured hairstyle is often the best choice to avoid gutters in the hair. Style with a little wax or gel to keep the hair in place all day.

Once you've found the perfect hairstyle, make sure to match your personal style with your hair. If you are more into the classic look, stick to a simpler and well-kept hairstyle. If you are more daring in your style, then finally experiment with colors or different haircuts - just remember to always maintain your hair regularly!

Match your hairstyle with your personal style

Understand your personal style, choose a hairstyle that suits your face and hair type and include elements of your personality in your hairstyle. These are three important steps to match your hairstyle with your personal style. Some people like a more classic style, while others prefer something more unconventional. Flowing hair requires the right techniques to achieve an elegant look.

First, take the time to research different styles and find the best fit for you based on your face shape and hair type. Also consider your daily activities - if you need a practical hairstyle or if you want something that expresses you more creatively. Always remember to take your wishes into account along with practical considerations, especially when it comes to flowing hair that requires a little extra maintenance than usual.

Find inspiration for your personal style with flowing hair

When you're looking for inspiration for your personal flowing hair style, it's a good idea to look to celebrity and influencer style icons with similar hair types. This way you can get a better sense of which hairstyles will work well for your hair. You should also explore different styles within the gutter hair category such as buzz cuts or longer waves to find something that suits your style.
