Today’s post about taming your tresses is Part 2 for checking out hairstyles that will keep you looking good on, and off, the motorcycle.
We may have called Part 1 Braids for the Chic Biker Babe, but we don’t want to exclude any of the dudes. Some dudes might have long locks they want to keep under control on the bike as well.
Dudes not Excluded
Ponytails or braids have usually been the chosen style for men with long hair, but recently the man-bun has come into fashion, so men’s hairstyle options are increasing.

Messy Hair? No Problem
Today we will explore other options for maintaining a tangle free, fashionable style on and off your bike. Your style may also be influenced and/or limited depending upon whether you wear a helmet to ride, or not.
But the good news is that many of the current hairstyles are boasting the messy look. Which means it’s a perfect style for a lady rider!
If you’re wearing a helmet, you can pretty much do whatever you want under there to keep your hair from tangling. Once you pull off your helmet and give your hair that sexy shake you can quickly style it into an easy updo.
If you’re wearing a bandanna, put your style in a little tighter before you leave. Once you arrive at your destination, you should have the messy updo look you’re aiming to achieve.
Here’s a badass Gothrider Skull Bandana that will help you rock whatever style you choose.
An Easy Updo in 2 –Steps:
- Gather hair at the nape of your neck and divide it into two strands
- Twist the strands around each other and then fashion into a bun at the nape of your neck
Messy French Twist
A French Twist isn’t just for a fancy evening out. In addition, they’re easier to master than you’d think once you get the hang of it.
- Gather hair as if you’re starting a pony tail
- Begin to twist the hair toward one side, depending upon which direction you’d like to have you twist
- Place bobby pins, or a long clip through hair to secure
