We can also look to the South American nation for some awesome hairstyles to step our game up to the next level.

Brazilian Surf Look

This is a look which has come to define many Brazilians, both now and over the years. Widely seen in Rio, where the “Carioca” (inhabitants or anything associated with Rio de Janeiro) style embodies a relaxed, beach by day, party by night vibe. Although it may look like a rough and tumble style with little care and attention, it requires quite a lot of care and especially hydration to stay looking sleek. Suitable to lengthy and slightly wavy locks, you will have that natural surfer look in no time. Just hop on your board and catch some waves.

Controlled Curls

Arguably the most famous mop of all belongs to soccer legend, Ronaldinho. His flowing, curly mane was kept under control over the years in a variety of ways, one of those was the top knot or man bun. Brazilians are well known to have thick and curly hair. With the resurgence of the man top knot style, this is an awesome way to keep your hair looking need and trendy at the same time. It is also an ultra-low maintenance solution. Just wrap it up at the back and hold it in place. It is certainly making a comeback.

Highlighted Comb Over

Brazilian men are taking it to another level when it comes to comb overs. Adding color is an awesome way to add vibrancy to a pretty standard style. The comb over is no exception. It provides that tinge of excitement and flair for which the Brazilians are well known, whilst maintaining the professionalism and tidiness to take your seat at the morning business meeting. The perfect look for a home angel and street devil.

He has recently opted for a more natural look, however the one cut which still adorns many Brazilian men and style icons is the high face undercut. A highly contrasting and head turning look. The mark of a highly self-assured man. With its razor clean sides, blended into the flowing top section, this beautiful masterpiece will have the beachgoers flocking to your side.
