The different types of Spartan warrior style haircuts are perfect for adventurous men whole simply seek to go beyond.
It is said that the Spartan warriors included a comb in the utensils they always took into battle. And before going out to fight, apart from using their military practices, they would patiently comb out their long hair in order to look good in the face of death. For the Spartans, long hair signified strength, virility, elegance, fierceness, and freedom. Here you have 10 Spartan hairstyles that will look great on you.
1. Semi-long on top with faded sides and a long beard
This is a very manly look, ideal for those who like to use more daring styles. It consists of having medium high hair along the center of the head, while it is kept pretty short along the sides and the back. You can comb it backwards, though slightly to the side. If you want to intensify the masculine effect of this style, we recommend you sport a long and thick beard, with a slightly groomed upper edge. A little bit of messiness is also contemplated.
2. High strip of long hair and faded sides with a medium beard
If you want to have long hair but mains bother you, we recommend this style. It allows you to have a full strip of long hair on the upper area of the head. To mark the limit, a part is used on both sides of the hair, with an even fade all the way out. The Spartan haircut is perfect to comb backward leaving the hair loose, or even to put in a high bun. The medium beard is a perfect combination with it. It's ideal for men that enjoy showing off their strength but who are practical at the same time.
3. Medium shoulder main with long beard
This is the perfect style for men who don´t want to spend time getting ready in front of the mirror, whether it be because they are in a hurry or because they enjoy a bit of messiness. It consists of a medium length main that falls at shoulder level but without covering them. To comb it, you can draw and imperfect part that will allow you to divert the hair away to the side. The rest can be left at random, according to the natural fall of the hair. The long and well-combed beard will come in to give a final touch of elegance, and at the same time, contrast.
4. Long main with braids and a very short beard
This Spartan style haircut would fill any ancient warrior with pride. It´s all about wearing a long and well-kept main, over which one can use a wide range of styled braids. We start with the upper part, that should have the crown drawn up into a braid that ends in a bun. On the sides, another wide and loose braid will be braided, running down in front of the shoulders. The rest of the hair is left loose. The basic idea is to divide the hair up on each side of the shoulders, which allows a solid view of the neck. To keep it all in balance, combine this hairstyle with a freshly trimmed beard. It´s perfect for men who like more striking trends.
5. Spartan warrior haircut
The Spartan warrior haircut is ideal for stronger men, those who see life as a battlefield. It consists of a thick strip of hair in the middle of the head, from which it will grow down past the shoulders. The sides and the back of the neck are completely shaven, leaving the skin bare. Without a doubt this is a daring look, that will make you stand out wherever you are. Later, you can tie the bunch of hair with a leather string or other similar material, wound all the way down the hair to the end. A short to medium beard, left slightly disheveled, will give a graceful look to your warrior aspect.
6. Centered strip of hair and shaven on the sides with a short beard
This is a style that looks very elegant and at the same time very modern. It mixes the striking of the Spartan haircut with modern subtlety of the clipper faded sides. A classical and technological look go hand in hand. It's perfect for gentlemen that like to look serious without leaving out a bit of reckless and out of line look. It consists of letting a central strip of hair grow out, not too wide (but not too narrow either), which should be kept well combed. In the lateral areas and the back, the shaver will be used at a medium length, which shouldn't be too long or too short. A copious beard, trimmed and groomed, will be the perfect compliment for this haircut.
7. Spartan main falling on the shoulders, with a long beard
This is an ideal haircut for men who like to sport a main. This style reminds us of when the Spartan warriors went out to battle, after having combed their hair. It is a look that lets the hair grow down below the shoulders, but not much more below that. It can be left loose at the bottom, and tied into a ponytail with a hair tie at the top, so as to prevent it from falling over the face, which would be impractical. It can be sported with a thick and semi-long beard, that is well groomed into an angular shape. Without a doubt, you will look like the Spartan warrior of our times.
8. Spartan-style braids with a pointed beard
This is a style that you´re going to love if you want to look exactly like the Spartan warriors of the 300 movie. It consists of letting the central front part of the hair grow out to below the shoulders, while we completely shave the sides and the back. Since the skin of the head is left exposed, it´s an ideal look to show off any tattoos that we might have on the head. This will give the shaven part an exclusive touch. From the roots of the hair, several finger-wide braids should be formed. Finally, all the braids are bunched together in several wide straps or bands (made of leather or of a similar looking material), about 4 bands that will be placed one below the other. This haircut can be accompanied with a pointed beard which will give it more visual impact.
9. Main with straight hair and a long beard
This is the perfect main style for the dreaming man, the one that has a refined and subtle esthetic style. This goes perfect with straight hair. It consists of letting the hair grow out way below the shoulders, and having it well combed, but without too much detail. It´s convenient slightly combed the crown to the side, but without using a part. It goes great with a long and abundant beard that´s well combed like the hair, but not too detailed. This increases emphasis on an intelligent look.
10. Spartan style hair with beard for the mature man
Maybe one of the more complicated issues for a mature man is looking in style without losing the value of his years. For that reason, we present you with this Spartan style haircut ideal for grey hair, be it curly or wavy. The beauty of the grey stands out from the hair, which should be well taken care of and combed, in order to give a more attractive and manly look. With this cut you´re going to look like the King of Sparta. It consists of growing the mane out a little lower than the shoulders, and should be well combed. Later you will be able to tie it in a knot with just the hair from the front, leaving the hair in the back loose. It will look spectacular if you combine it with a long beard, but a well groomed one, that showcases the firm angles of its character.
