Wondering about the hairstyles for suits? In this blog post, we list some of the best hairstyles for suits and how to style them.
Have you ever wondered why people spend so much time styling their hair and perfecting it before they step out?
Well, that’s because your hair is probably your most prominent feature when it comes to physical appearance. It can not only enhance your entire look but it can also be used to bring out your best facial features.
I personally think that if your hair is styled well, that’s the best accessory you could flaunt.
If you’ve chosen to wear a suit, it’s most probably a serious event. So, everything must look great. This includes your shoes, your accessories, and even your hair.

Hairstyles For Suits
Check out these hair hairstyles for suits!
Now you may be thinking why I’m putting so much emphasis on hairstyles. I mean, a well tailored suit does pretty much all the work when it comes to looking good.
I believe that a hairstyle can make or break an outfit. You could have a great hairstyle but it may just not be for a suit. Also, a great hairstyle doesn’t always mean that it’s a great hairstyle for you.
People always say that men have it easy and don’t have to worry about styling their hair. But besides popular belief, there are many options that men can choose from when it comes to hairstyles for suits. Here are a few!
The side sweep with a slight fade
Lately, I’ve seen more and more men sporting that side sweep. It is modern and classy, with a hint of that bad-boy vibe.
You can experiment with this hairstyle and get an edgy look by giving a slight fade on the sides.
This hairstyle is a great choice when it comes to formal hairstyles. It is clean and suits men from every age group.
Also, as a bonus, this hairstyle will look just as great at the after-party when the blazers and ties come off.
Spikes may remind you of your college days back in the 2000s, and they’re just as great now. Now before you brush me aside, hear me out.
Spikes are always associated with casual attires. But, sporting short spikes with a well tailored suit is sure to make you look dapper with an edgy vibe.
Short hair doesn’t have to be boring anymore. Spikes are one sure way of adding some “oomph” to your hair. Your short spikes will also give you a younger look.
Slick It Back Like Beckham
If this hairstyle is good enough for David Beckham, do I really need to defend it?
There’s just something about this hairstyle that makes it perfect for every occasion. It’s classic and gives off a dangerous and sexy vibe.
Just work some styling gel through your hair and comb your hair back. You can experiment a little with this hairstyle and cut the hair on the sides shorter. You can add a fade effect as well.
The best part of this hairstyle is that it looks great on men belonging to every age group.
The Man Bun
This list of hairstyles for suits would be incomplete without mentioning the man bun.
A sleek man bun is a go to for many men who have long hair. And it has proven to be an excellent choice.
A sleek man bun is a great look for formal as well as casual events. It works well with a suit and casual outfits. It suits every face shape and accentuates all the right facial angles.
The Trendy Crew Cut
This is probably the most no-fuss and easy hairstyle for men. It works great not just for suits but for pretty much every outfit.
This hairstyle is neat and attractive. It’s also perfect for a summer look. It can also give a more youthful appearance.
You can make the crew cut a little trendier and ask your hair stylist to make funky patterns on the side.
Who said suits can be worn only by men?
A woman in a well tailored suit is a walking epitome of power.
The Slick Ponytail
It’s easy and it’s timeless. If you’re looking for a quick hairdo as you’re rushing to your next office meeting, a neat ponytail is your saving grace.
What I love about a ponytail is that you don’t have to worry too much about getting it right. You can add a parting, either centre or side, or you can just pull it all back.
Use some good quality hairspray or serum and you can take care of any flyways and frizz in seconds.
The Classic Bun
A neat and elegant bun is a great way to get your hair out of the way. Whether it’s a pantsuit or a formal skit and blazer, this updo works well.
You can even jazz it up and add a French twist or a few braids. Like a ponytail, you can slick back all your hair, or do a side or centre partition.
Also, a bun can make you look more mature. And I have personally seen how handy that comes at important meetings.
The French braid
If a bun isn’t your thing, this is another hairstyle that is great to get your hair out of your face.
A French braid is a classy and elegant hairstyle that suits every face shape and hair type. I find that with a French braid, I don’t have to worry about frizz too much. If your hair is prone to frizz, a little serum or hairspray will hold everything in place.
The Slick Back/ Gelled Hair
Women with shorter hair can opt for this hairstyle. Slicked-back hair can give you the perfect edgy vibe. Major girl boss vibes!
You can play around with this hairstyle a little and add a trendy undercut or fade on the side. You can even use hair gel for the perfect “wet” look while your hair stays in place all day.
Short Bob With Faded Sides
Scarlett Johansson shows us all, again and again, how a woman can rock a suit. Her iconic 2015 SNL photoshoot showed her looking like a boss in a suit and sporting that short bob with a trendy fade on the side and we all loved it!
Consider Your Face Shape While Choosing Hairstyles For Suits
When you choose a hairstyle, it is important to take your face shape into consideration. Have you ever wondered why a hairstyle that looks absolutely stunning on your friend doesn’t suit you?
It’s probably because you have different face shapes. Believe it or not, your face shape has a big role to play when it comes to whether a particular hairstyle looks good on you or not.
As I said, a great hairstyle doesn’t always mean it’s great for you. Here are the common face shapes and a few hairstyles that suit them:
This face shape requires a hairstyle that widens your cheekbones. For women, curtain bangs and layered cuts work well with this face shape. Men can pull off the slicked-back look, side part, or man bun easily with this face shape.
People with oval-shaped faces are the luckiest because they can pull off almost every hairstyle. A hairstyle that adds volume will work wonders and give your face more depth.
A heart-shaped face is ideal for bangs because of the wider forehead. A textured fringe or quiff can help accentuate your chin, which provides a flattering look.
With this face shape, hairstyles that draw attention to the forehead and chin work great. You can sport a textured and messy look and accentuate your cheekbones.
With a square-shaped face, your best facial asset is your strong jawline. Hairstyles like an undercut or deep side part can help draw attention to this.
For a round face, you want a haircut/ hairstyle that creates a slimming effect on your face and creates the illusion of a longer neck. Men can opt for the pompadour style or a side parting.
Women must avoid styles that create hard angles and choose styles like long layers, side-swept bangs, or a choppy pixie cut.
The final takeaway
Your hair is your most prominent feature and it has the power to make or break your look. These hairstyles are some of the best hairstyles for suits.
Whether you’re attending a business meeting or a semi formal dinner, your suit deserves a hairstyle that “suits” it.
Picking the right hairstyle has a lot to do with understanding the shape of your face and your best facial features.
Hairstyles can work magic. You can use your hairstyle to appear more youthful or more mature, depending on the look you’re going for.
The bottom line is, your hairstyle is one of the first things people notice about you. So make sure it’s always on point.
