Long Curls

Mendes’s curls became much more accentuated with his long hair and this became his signature look for years prior to his new look.

During his long curls period we saw the singer had his hair placed in a ponytail, manbun and worn out in messy curls.

He grew out his hair as a result of the pandemic which was a perfect opportunity not only for him but for men to get experimental with their hairstyles.

This all came to an end back in Feb 2021 when he shared the first look via his Instagram story writing “Goodbye long hair”. Guess we have the images for memories.

Medium Length

His medium length cut allows us to see the natural movement of his hair whilst also highlighting his curls.

With a small amount of product used to define his curls this allows for it to be styled in multiple ways, sometimes strands falling on his face and other times hair all on top.

In an episode of GQ’s Cant live without Shawn revealed his Kevin Murphy hair paste which he frequently uses on his medium length hair!

Not much maintenance is required in comparison to long hair but you will still need to take care of it and the right products is how you start.

It’s no different to the multiple Justin Bieber hairstyles we have seen, it could be Justin Bieber dreads, quiff or short hair the world will always remember his wings haircut.

At this point Shawn’s hair was cropped up and around the ears with his sides shorter and that was the haircut he introduced to the masses. Though he has gone on to style his signature long and medium hair we can’t forget how it started
