For decades men were limited for choice when it came to hairstyles. Besides the flat top, spiked styles and straight, long looks there was not much for guys to choose from. In recent years, tousled, unkempt locks have become popular. However, having hair hanging in your face looks messy and can block a working man's line of sight. Wearing bangs off to the side in the side-swept manner is a trendy look and keeps bangs neatly tucked out of the way.

Side swept bangs are youthful-looking.

Step 1

Rub your hand across your hair pomade or squirt a dime-sized amount of gel into your hands.

Step 2

Tousle the hair with the styling treatment, touching the ends first with the fingers then working upward.

Step 3

Blow your hair dry on a low setting while combing the bangs to the side with a vent brush. Brush out the rest of the hair. Continue to use the fingers to shape the side-swept bangs in place.
