The Surfer Dude’s Hairstyle

I know that summer is long over, but the surfer dude’s haircut is a cool men’s hairstyle which you can sport any season especially if you have wavy or curly hair like me.


I know what you must be thinking. F4 haircut? No, not quite. The F4 haircut is for the guys with very straight hair and it is a haircut which is meant to be long and combed more often. On the contrary, the surfer dude’s hairstyle is the exact opposite – it is usually wavy and is very low maintenance especially if you have naturally curly hair. The less you comb it, the better it looks.

Example of popular Filipino guys who have surfer hair going for them are Billy Crawford and Mateo Guidicelli (did I spell that right?).

We have also seen music icons Kean Cipriano and Ely Buendia sporting that hairstyle not so long ago.

Non-Filipinos who I have seen with this hairstyle are Owen Wilson and I am Number Four actor Alex Pettyfer.

So why is the hairstyle called as such? Pretty straightforward. It is the hairstyle that surfers love to have because it is low maintenance but at the same time very stylish. Just a precaution: it does not suit everyone. Some guys can sport the surfer dude’s hairstyle really good whether they are surfing, clubbing and even if they are in the office wearing long sleeves. However, there are some guys who just can’t pull it off and it makes them look untidy. I guess it all depends on the shape of your face and the kind of hair that you have.

  • I have a straight hair but I always pull this style off. I love that you made an article about this, thanks! I just wish you included how to style your hair into one.

    For guys who would like to try this, this is what you can do. After shower, vigorously dry your hair with a towel. It helps if you would lower your head. You can also try shaking your head (like, head-banging) and messing your hair with your hands. Then, while the hair is still wet, put pomade or hair mousse on it. Mildly fix it with your hands, but don’t comb or brush it, and don’t style it too much. It’s meant to look casual and slightly messy.

  • Damian – sure np and sorry for the late reply. Thank you for your tips as it will help a lot of PGG readers to do the surfer dude’s look.

  • I used to sport the same hairstyle (before entering my current hotel job which restricts long hair) its really a quickfix hair for guys on the go.I have fine and straight hair which is a bit of a prob,so what I do is blow dry my hair sideways (as if ur hair is being blown the wind) and never combed it, then apply some hairspray to get the “messed up” look,this is great if u have a natural wavy hair,the messy look wud definitely work on guys with a clean looking face,works even better if ur on a suit 😀
