For men with long hair, styling it can be an absolute nightmare. Knots, tangles and a sweaty head (sorry) are all grooming problems that have guys grabbing for the shaver when things start to heat up.
But relax; put down your shaver and wipe away your tears. There’s a haircut that’s trending that’ll keep your long locks at bay. Introducing the Biker Bob.
Let the experts at Ruffians barber shop explain it more…
The Biker Bob is loosely based on a Jax Teller’s (Sons of Anarchy) hairstyle. The haircut leaves weight in the front and the sides allowing the hair to be slicked-back with ease. The back is then layered to create movement and some volume. Finally, the sideburns have been undercut and burst faded out.
Ask for the length to be retained in the front – long enough to easily be tucked behind both ears – and for the back to be textured and layered whilst still retaining weight through the top.
Towel dry your hair, then add a fingernail amount of pomade, making sure you get the product to the roots of the hair. Dry using a diffuser (the big round head you put on a hairdryer) and brush your hair back into the desired shape. Add a touch of salt spray to texturise and finish.

He made the hairstyle popular after his role as Jax Teller in Sons Of Anarchy. You’d be surprised how many hair trends spike off the back of TV, take Cillian Murphy’s hairstyle in Peaky Blinders, for example.
To be fair, is there any hairstyle he can’t pull off? Using more sea salt spray and less pomade will give the Biker Bob a much softer slicked-back appearance, like Pitt shows us below. Styling this hair for summer? This is how you do it.
He’s seen more diverse cuts and colours than any actor we know, so this has got to be one of his most stripped-back looks. Using more pomade (and, by the looks of things, a whole bottle of hairspray, too), Leto has achieved a tight slick that no gust of wind can touch.
Matthew McConaughey shows us how to effortlessly pair the Biker Bob with a beard. He’s gone for the slicked-back hairstyle (with the ends left more natural) vs an unkempt beard, making a great rough and ready contrast. He’s looking alright, alright, alright.
