Viking Hairstyles to Unleash Your Inner Warrior

Do you see yourself as the Vikingly type? Maybe you’re into all things Viking age? Or, simply love long Viking hairstyles?

We have some Viking hair and beard inspiration for you, so you can decide on the Viking hairstyle for you.

Best Viking Hairstyles to Unleash Your Inner Warrior

Now when we think of Vikings, we think of long, messy masculine hair, along with well-groomed Viking beards, Viking dreadlocks, and Viking braids. These looks are very laid back, low maintenance, and super cool to show off your individuality.

Sometimes it’s fun to wear something a little different with your hair, so let’s get Viking-age scandi with our looks.

Shaved Underneath Viking Hairstyle

Shaved Underneath Viking Hairstyle

Leave the top long, and go all out shaved on the underneath section of your hair to add a Viking vibe. Contrast is key with this look, so go short.

It looks super cool on those of you with scalp tattoos too, so if that’s a bit of you, I suggest you rock it! It tends to be the look that is most popular for the Nordic warrior look, so grab those clippers.

One Braid Viking Hairstyle

This looks super cool and is a Viking hairstyle that works well with long hair, medium hair, or undercut hair, like the image above. What’s nice about this look is how plain it is. A simple bulky braid sets off that scandi Viking looks, keeping loose hair neat and out of the way – ready for battle.

Dreadlocks Viking hair

Dreadlocks Viking hair

One thing that’s quite cool about having dreadlocks as your Viking hairstyle is the fact that they’re fun to accessorize. Maybe using metal cuffs, playing with feathers in the hair, or wrapping some string around the hair, emitting the ancient warrior tribe looks. Accessories aside, the dreads look cool on short or long Viking looks, giving you room to play.

Dividing the hair into three braids – one in the middle and one on either side looks fire as a Viking style. Keeping the hair neat and styling back off the face is super easy with no drama. Take the three braids and braid them together for a unique twist on your Viking hairstyle.

Groomed Beard Viking Style for Men

The Vikings were known for their unique grooming when it came to hair and beards. Braids or ponytails in the beard can look super hunky. Or simply having a full beard that’s well-trimmed up to give it a strong shape is also cool for the Viking look.

Man Bun Viking Hair Look

So maybe you’re a simplistic guy? You literally wanna just tie up and go? The simple man bun is a great look for those of you needing your time in the mornings while looking good still.

Pull the hair to the back of the head and simply tie it. Once on your final wrap, don’t pull your hair all the way through, bundling the hair in a loose loop man bun.

Half Up Viking Hair Ponytail

So, this look has no fuss but long Viking hair written all over it. Simply take the top half of the hair and tie it at the back of the head, leaving the longer lengths out but keeping it out your way. It gives off that Nordic warrior vibe every time.

Silver Viking Scandinavian Blonde Hair

Ok, so we have heard of the blonder Scandinavian hair colors, and the silver blondes are so crisp. These looks can work well for someone who has some whites or greys and wants to play with the color. My advice is to go to the salon but done well, have you looking super scandi.

Scattered Braids in Viking Hair

Check out this look that just has random plaits worked into the hair. It adds a touch of Viking to the look without having to go extreme. It also looks good when tied up, too, so get experimental. I prefer the braids when they are a little more rugged and messy, so leave them in for a few days, and they’ll just get better and better.

Braided Sides and Viking Hair

Braided Sides and Viking Hair

So, this one’s a classic Vikingly look, sides braided off the face, with the hair worn back. It gives almost a mohawk-type shape to the hair but is a super fierce warrior. Tie the braids together at the back, or simply braid them together. The fun thing about the Viking hairstyles is you can get quite creative.

Maybe you’re not big into braids, but you kind of like the definition they give to a Viking hairstyle. Why not try twisting the hair instead? It gives the hair separation without the braiding and obviously adds a new twist to the look – pardon the pun.

Box Braids Viking Hair Style

Box braids can be fun not just for the style but also because you can add faux hair and change up the color too. Maybe you like the idea of highlights but don’t want to put chemicals on the hair or have a long-term color commitment. This is where box braids can change things up for you as well as being a cool Viking hairstyle.

Viking Hair Ponytail

This look can be simple or made complex and worn in different ways. Maybe the ponytail looks simply worn at the back, and low is for you, or maybe you want to go a bit different and add braids or bands in the ponytail to give a more tribal finish. Either way looks great so play about.
