Tuesday’s Top 5: Male Characters With Gorgeous Long Hair

Tuesday's Top 5

While I try not to write too many posts about the physical characteristics of characters, this was a list I’ve wanted to write for awhile. Long hair on guys is just kind of amazing (or at least I think so). And when it billows in the wind and invites you to run your fingers through it, there’s just something really magical about that. Here are my top 5 characters with gorgeous long hair who I would absolutely love to spend some time with. Yes, this list is entirely my own personal preference and uses no criteria worth mentioning.

And then for patrons, be sure to check out my lesser top 5 list. This week focussing on male characters who have long hair but still don’t really impress and I’d rather not get too near.

Please Note – There will be spoilers below (particularly number 4).

Honourable mentions this week go to: Edward Elric (Full Metal Alchemist) and Malachite (Sailor Moon).

Number 5: Kanda (D Gray Man)


I’ll admit there is very little chance of Kanda actually letting me touch his hair even if he wasn’t an anime character and if I happened to meet him, but that doesn’t stop me very much wanting too. That glossy shine, the way it moves when he fights, his hair is amazing and completely sold this character even early on in D Gray Man when he was a bit of a jerk (okay, he’s regularly a jerk but he kind of grows on you).

Number 4: Weismann (K Project)


This one is an odd choice I’ll admit given we barely get to meet this character in his actual body (which would be the long haired version). A few flashbacks are really all we get and the next time we meet this character with memories he’s in Yashiro’s undeniably short haired (not too short) body. Still, you have to admit his hair is just kind of inviting you to touch it.

Number 3: Tomoe (Kamisama Kiss)


Another character who doesn’t usually have long hair but the few times he does, it is unbelievably gorgeous. It almost makes you wish for more flashback episodes just so you could see more of Tomoe with this hair. Plus the ears kind of work. Then again, he was pretty violent then so maybe we should just stick to present day Tomoe.

Number 2: Shichika Yasuri (Katanagatari)


He may not be the sharpest tool in the shed but Shichika is honest, earnest, and deadly. Combine that with some odd but strangely compelling fashion sense and a great hairstyle (albeit one that cannot really exist outside of an anime) and you have a character that is going to fascinate from minute one.

Number 1: Zangetsu (Bleach)


I know, so many characters in Bleach with long hair, and so many anime characters, so why choose Zangetsu? Because his hair matches the torn and scrappy edges of his outfit, because its almost always windy when we see him, because of all the characters on the list his would be the closest to a hairstyle you might be able to encounter in the real world… Mostly just because I really love his hair.

Okay, and a total cheat bonus addition to the list. Victor from Yuri On Ice (from when his hair was actually long).

So that is my list this week. Which anime male with long hair would you have had on your list? Or female if you prefer.

  2. Oh yes, Viktor with long hair did me in so much, a pity we didn’t see more of it. Tbh, when I noticed that both Yuuri and Yurio let their hair grow too, I got shook. I’m a total hoe for long hair πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ’–
    I felt the same for Kanda, he’s a jerk but damn his hair is A++ πŸ™βœ¨
    Griffith from Berserk and Iason from Ai no Kusabi also have marvelous hair that make me shook πŸ™πŸ’–βœ¨
    I must admit that I love when there’s a bitch curl too, like Aizen (with the hair pushed back) πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œβœ¨

  3. Weismann and Tomoe’s hair are super gorgeous! I really want to run my hand through them! Haha and of course Victor :’) Is it bad that I want him to grow his hair out again? 😍

  4. Tomoe’s hair is amazing. I would also add Kenshin Himura from Rurouni Kenshin because it is so red and fluffy and Ayame Sohma (Yuki’s older brother) from Fruits Basket.

  5. I knew Kanda would be on your list. πŸ˜€ I don’t usually like male characters with long hair but InuYasha and Ed from FMA are probably my favorites and though I like Tomoe from Kamisama Kiss, I like him more with shorter hair. As for females, I really like Yuuki’s long hair in Vampire Knight, it just makes her more feminine and gives her elegance. I also liked Chitanda’s long black hair from Hyouka.

  6. I also share a weakness for men with long hair. It looks like it’ll be a pain to take care of but hey, it’s anime, who cares? I’ve only seen Victor and Adolf from your list, and hell yes, I want to touch their hair. Victor in particular makes me wonder how he’d have looked like skating with his hair unbound – the few practice shots we do see are gorgeous.
