Men with long hair
In this material, you will get acquainted with the successful styling options for men's hairstyles for long hair, as well as the pros and cons of such haircuts.
Advantages and disadvantages
Long hair in men can cause the most controversial feelings in society: some sincerely admire elegant men's hairstyles, others are skeptical about such self-expression, while others associate long hair with femininity and weak will. The presence of such stereotypes is easily explained by the fashion for short men's hairstyles, which has been prevailing for 150–200 years.
In today's world, which supports experimentation in all directions with their own appearance, long hair has become an excellent method of self-expression for young men. Haircuts for long hair today are actively used by representatives of many creative professions: artists, musicians, artists, stylists and even writers. Men's hairstyles for long hair have a lot of positive and negative points. The most basic of them will be described below.
- Long curls allow you to experiment with your bow in unlimited quantities. Here, men have many styling options, suggesting different shapes of bangs, as well as different lengths of hair at the temples and back of the head. Not to mention decorative patterns, braids and other extraordinary hairstyle accents.
- A well-styled hairstyle for long hair can give a man a romantic and masculine look at the same time, depending on the chosen bow and accents in clothes.
- If short haircuts look good only with a certain type of face, then long hair can smooth out the flaws of any face shape with the right bangs and curls at the crown. For example, with the help of long drooping hair, you can effectively hide protruding ears, a large forehead, or visually stretch the shape of the face, making it more symmetrical.
- A hairstyle for long hair allows you to perfectly reflect the character of the man who wears it. Moreover, she not only emphasizes some style in clothes - she is the main part of the bow, drawing all the attention to herself.
- If we talk about a purely practical plus, then long curls get dirty much more slowly than short ones. This does not force a man to wash them every day - 1 time in 2-3 days will be enough.
- The main disadvantage of long curls is in the stereotype that is firmly entrenched in the minds of many people about the femininity of men with long hair. Anyone who will reproach you for femininity should remember the ancient Scandinavians, who had incredibly long braids and a lush beard, while being considered the most ferocious and courageous people. Moreover, in ancient Egypt, long hair was considered a sign of high class, while slaves and representatives of the lower classes were usually shaved bald.
- In order for long hair in a hairstyle to look healthy and beautiful, they require regular care, which will take a lot of time. What are regular combing and procedures for restoring curls with the help of masks and baths. In addition, it takes years for some men to grow long and healthy hair.
- Hair that is long and not fixed on the head will cause a lot of discomfort and interfere during power loads, as well as in work that requires a lot of movement. To prevent this from happening, the hair is usually pinned up with invisible or elastic bands in the form of bunches at the back of the head.
- Unfortunately, many men already by the age of 40 lose a significant amount of hair on the back of the head and crown. This does not allow you to create luxurious hairstyles from long hair.
Who is long hair suitable for?
Unfortunately, long hairstyles will not look good in every bow, and here everything depends not only on the shape of the face, but also on the type of hair, as well as the character of the man.
- Hairstyles for long curls are suitable for men with almost any texture and type of hair. If it is hard and unruly hair, then under its own weight it will obediently fit on the head. If a man has smooth and straight curls, styling products can give them additional waviness.
- As already mentioned, elongated hairstyles are more suitable for men of precisely creative professions. They endow their owner with dreaminess and romance and form the wearer's personality. Such hairstyles are useless for men who prefer more businesslike and practical work. They will look at least out of place in a general seasoned look.
- Since elongated curls require more attentive care and a considerable time, they are suitable only for those men who are ready to spend at least half an hour a day styling and combing their hair.
It should be understood that the appropriateness of long hair in your bow is very dependent on the type of hairstyle chosen and related accessories or clothing items. If, when creating short haircuts, you can turn to any hairdresser and count on a satisfactory result, then it would be best to contact unique image studios for long hairstyles.
Varieties of haircuts
There are several types of model men's haircuts for long hair. Depending on the degree of symmetry, asymmetric and symmetrical men's hairstyles are distinguished. Symmetrical hairstyles involve straight curls of approximately the same length and lower to the back of the head or face. Asymmetric suggests cascading haircuts with graduation and clear highlighting of the tips.
The first option is preferred by calmer and more serious men who do not like to stand out in the crowd. The second one is more suitable for creative guys with an unusual sense of style and a desire to express themselves in all available ways.
Also, long men's haircuts can be divided into hairstyles with and without bangs. Long haircuts without cracks open the forehead - men with regular oval faces love them. Options with charges are designed to smooth out some kind of facial flaw (large forehead, thin lips, uneven eyebrows) or give the face more lightness and symmetry. If we consider fashionable modern varieties of men's hairstyles for long hair, then stylists distinguish only four types: classic, a pompadour, cascade, and grunge.
It is necessary to consider each type of men's haircut for long hair in more detail.
Classic. This haircut option has been relevant for over 20 years. Its distinguishing features are approximately the same length of curls on the entire head and a straight parting on smooth hair. The classic version also includes long men's hairstyles without parting with thoroughly combed back hair at the crown and temples.
Pompadour. Some refer to this hairstyle as a haircut for medium hair. The peculiarity of the pompadour is short temples, while the long hair is combed back and raised with styling products. To create this hairstyle, seek the help of professional stylists.
Cascade. This type includes all varieties of men's long shoulder-length hairstyles with a multi-level haircut. In this case, the hair is actively milled to give it different lengths and increase the hairstyle volume.
Grunge. This group of men's hairstyles includes the most beautiful and unusual options for haircuts for men's hair. With all its appearance, this hairstyle symbolizes rebellious moods and tireless energy. The main signs of grunge are feigned carelessness, disheveledness, and contrast. In this style, you can use elongated bangs, make shaved temples, or even use striking colors to paint curls.
How to choose the correct option?
When choosing a hairstyle for long hair, you should focus on factors such as the shape of the face, the type, color, and texture of the hair, and the degree of difficulty in regular styling of a particular hairstyle. Below will be considered in detail the design options for long haircuts for each factor.
Choice by face shape
Long hair should be styled differently depending on the width of the forehead and the shape of the chin and cheekbones. It all depends on what positive aspects you want to highlight and what negative ones you want to smooth or hide.
Oval shape. Men with an oval face shape have no restrictions when choosing varieties and styling options for long hair. Here, additional tricks are unnecessary, such as a lowered bang, shaved temples, or a voluminous crown. Usually, men with this face shape choose the most open haircuts that allow you to demonstrate a beautiful and even forehead, neat cheekbones, and lips.
Round form. In this case, long hair's main task is visually stretching the face-up. For this, haircuts are usually used with short or shaved temples, the back of the head (making a face more rectangular), and long hair at the crown, which can be combed back or to the side. Men with round faces should give up the choice of cascading and voluminous haircuts, which will round the look even more.
Square shape. It all depends on what you want to achieve with your hair. If you want to hide too protruding cheekbones or smooth out a square chin, choose options for long haircuts with asymmetrical bangs and long side strands. If you demonstrate your cheekbones and strong-willed chin to the whole world, choosing haircuts with short shaved temples and a raised or combed top is better. Avoid straight lines in the hair - smoothness and even some sloppiness should be preferred for this face shape.
Triangular shape. Persons with this shape have a large and broad forehead and a pointed chin. To visually reduce the forehead and smooth out the sharp corners of the chin, choose haircuts with oblique and asymmetrical bangs. Also, options for haircuts without charges, long, smooth side strands and a completely open forehead can look good here.
Heart shape. Men with the heart-shaped face can experiment with any haircuts for long hair. However, hairstyles with excessive volume at the crown and too-long bangs should be avoided.
Choice by type, texture, and color of hair
By type and texture
Most men have incredibly coarse but thick hair. In short hairstyles, such hair looks very messy and needs constant styling. But, being long, this hair with proper styling can look stylish under its weight. Hairstyles that suggest a slight sloppiness of the bangs or crown are more suitable for this type of hair - with unruly coarse hair, this will be easy to achieve.
Men with wavy hair have to choose a successful short haircut for themselves carefully - such curls, in most cases, look out of place and even ridiculous. Wavy hair can create an incredibly successful creative image in a long hairstyle.
For long hair of a wavy type, hairstyles are best suited, with the main emphasis on voluminous and long bangs. Hairstyles without bangs with long side curls that open the face can also look good here (for this, they can be fixed behind the ears).
As for sparse and brittle hair, long hairstyles do not always look good. Men with curls who want to give their hair more volume should opt for cascading hairstyles or haircuts with thinning.
By hair color
Only one point should be remembered here - long hair looks much more luxurious and more voluminous on black and dark hair. With blond hair, long curls need additional accents in patterns, braids, or long bangs.
In addition to the selection factors described, the complexity of styling certain hairstyles should be assessed. Young people willing to spend some effort on styling long curls can choose more complex hairstyles that require styling products for fixation and styling. You should choose the simplest haircut options for men who do not like to spend more than 10 minutes a day adjusting their hair.
If a man with long locks wants to look stylish and creative, he must learn how to style his hair regularly. A regular hair dryer and comb will suffice for the most straightforward styling. For more complex styling, you may need an elastic band, varnish, mousse, or wax. Below are exciting and fashionable styling options for long curls for men.
They are stacking with a beam (or top knot). This is one of the most popular and stylish styling options for long hair, which simultaneously allows you to keep the length of the curls, opens up the face, and does not allow the hair to interfere during physical exertion and work. These haircuts received the most incredible popularity five years ago in the West - where they are known under the original name man bun. For such styling, a man will need a small elastic band or a few hairpins. The hair is simply combed back, twisted into a bundle, and fixed at the border of the crown and occipital zones in the form of a small fortune.
Tail hair. This styling method resembles a “bun” and opens up the face as much as possible, preventing the hair from falling into the eyes. In this case, the hair is also combed back and, with the help of an elastic band, is formed into a ponytail on the border of the crown and occipital zones.
Long curls with a rim. All hair is habitually combed back and fixed at the crown (closer to the bangs) with an invisible boundary. It also allows you to open your forehead and keep hair away from your eyes.
Hairstyles with braids. Despite the fact that today braids are used mainly by girls, this option for fixing hair was actively used by men in ancient times. Today, braids in men's hairstyles can mean both classic versions of braids at the back of the head, as well as more complex interpretations. For example, a braid fits in a parting place or serves as a frame for combed back hair. Often, small pigtails are woven into classic long men's hairstyles and give the image of a man masculinity and originality. Today, options for men's long hairstyles with braids and Afro-braids are considered very fashionable, which do not require special care and frequent styling.
Bulky and long dreadlocks. Variants of such long male hairstyles came straight from the culture of Rastafarianism, whose representatives preferred to braid their hair in tight and tangled curls in a special manner. Today, young people often use such hairstyles with thin, but frequent dreadlocks. The disadvantage of such hairstyles is the need for very careful care. If it is absent, such dreadlocks will look terribly untidy, cause severe discomfort during unweaving, and even become a nest for the accumulation of parasites.
Classic styling for long hair. These options are suitable for both wavy and straight, hard hair. In this case, a central parting is formed on the head (it can be exactly in the center or slightly shifted to the temples), from which the hair is combed on the sides and covers the ears - this is done when a man wants to open his face and show a beautiful forehead and eyes. If a man has a wide forehead and a square chin, a side parting is formed, as well as an oblique long bang.
How to care?
In order for men's hairstyles for long hair to look harmonious and beautiful, they need to be constantly and painstakingly looked after. This is where the following tips for caring for long curls can help you.
High-quality and delicate care requires an expensive and gentle comb. These should not be sharp combs with very frequent teeth that will scratch the scalp. Best of all, special combs for long hair in the form of large brushes with sparse teeth are suitable here. In addition, such combs need to be washed regularly and to prevent the accumulation of dirt and loose hair on the teeth.
Hair wash. The condition of your hair directly depends on shampoos and gels. If dryness or brittleness is not so noticeable on short curls, then in long hairstyles, sick or poorly groomed hair is immediately evident. Try to buy only high-quality head care products.
Water. When washing your hair, make sure that the water is not too hot. In addition, hard water can be very detrimental to any hair. In order for long hair to be better washed and soaked with shampoo, they should be soaped 2 times.
Combing. Regular combing of hair not only contributes to their healthy appearance, but also stimulates blood circulation in the scalp. During this procedure, which should take place 1-2 times a day, it is best to use massage combs.
Drying. If short hair can be left to dry naturally after washing, and this will not damage their appearance, then long hair must be dried to maintain a neat appearance. If you have dry hair, you should dry it with a hot towel, if you have combination, normal or oily hair, choose a hair dryer.
Adjustment. Long hair has increased weight and volume, in addition, permanent tangles, tangles and split ends are more characteristic of them. To prevent this from happening, experts advise visiting a stylist at least once a month for a corrective haircut and styling.
Check your scalp regularly. If you feel constant itching, you observe peeling of the skin on your head or an increase in the amount of dandruff, contact a dermatologist immediately. These signs probably mean the wrong approach to care, health problems or the use of low-quality hair styling products.
Hygiene. Do not forget to wash your long hair regularly - this affects both their texture and appearance. In the end, greasy shine in any hairstyle looks unpleasant.

When the hair turns into a straw, they no longer hold volume, splits, and look dull, brittle, and dry. A familiar picture? Don't rush to get a haircut. It is possible to restore damaged hair, and we will tell you how to do it!
How do you fix severely damaged hair?
Not all damaged hair is damaged in the same way: for some, the condition is close to disaster. For others, it may remain quite acceptable. It all depends on the degree of damage and, of course, the characteristics of each case.
Types of damaged hair
Mechanical damage is the destruction of the scaly layer through styling tools. Despite its hardness, hair is soft compared to metal. Any intense mechanical impact leaves minor damage to hair. These damages gradually accumulate and deepen.
Hair often undergoes mechanical stress daily: we wind it, stretch it, comb it intensively, comb it, tie it into a ponytail with tight elastic bands, the hair rubs against each other and the fabric during sleep and wiping with a towel, etc. For us, this is a mere trifle, which we do not even remember. But if you look at the hair under a microscope, you can see: that the farther the hair is from the root, the more uneven the edges of the scales of the cuticle layer of the hair. The scaly layer may lack significant fragments toward the end, leading to hair damage.
Scratching is very harmful. Since this type of process can lead to the destruction of the scales of the shell, in the process, the ends of the hair will simply begin to fork. Provided the cuticle is first destroyed in the middle of the hair, it breaks in this place.
Chemical damage to the hair results from improper or excessive use of cosmetic hairdressing products. There are plenty of damaging procedures in the arsenal of the hairdresser, such as chemical hair straightening, perm, hair lightening, and coloring with complex hair dyes. These procedures cause damage to the hair on their own, but it is common to combine techniques (such as dyeing chemically curled hair) that further damage the hair. As a result of perms, bleaching, and dyeing, there is a firm swelling and a change in the structure of the hair. At the end of this procedure, the hair acquires a very high porosity.
All these processes are accompanied by an intense swelling of the hair and the opening of the hair's cuticle layer. The cuticle layer cannot close naturally. The hair becomes damaged. When dyeing with complex hair dyes, the primary damage is caused to the hair due to intense swelling and gradual drying.
Each procedure without proper care exacerbates the existing damage. Hair care products can only temporarily and cosmetically compensate for wear. It is impossible to restore the structure with severe damage. In such cases, the damaged areas of the hair are cut off.
If we briefly describe the chemical damage to the hair: this is the softening and destruction of the core (cortex), the oxidation of melanin, and the exposure of the fibrous layer. Chemical damage to the hair contributes to the manifestation of increased sensitivity to mechanical damage to the hair.
Thermal damage to the hair. This type of damage occurs as a result of the frequent use of hot styling appliances. This includes straightening with an iron, curling with a curling iron, styler, tongs, and blow-drying.
When exposed to high temperatures, the cuticle scales, which form the protective layer of the hair, rise, exposing the cortex, internal moisture evaporates, and the destruction of keratin protein occurs. The rod is covered with bubbles - the curls become brittle and dry. The appearance deteriorates, the former shine disappears, split ends appear, and difficulties arise when combing. The lack of moisture makes the hair more vulnerable and crumbles during combing.
Everyone's favorite sun also has a negative effect, from whose UV rays protection is needed. Direct sunlight destroys carbon-sulfur bonds and provokes the breakdown of proteins. This leads to hair loss and breakage.
We figured out the types of damage, and now let's figure out how a modern girl does not earn these “three horsemen of the Apocalypse” and how to save her hair.
Mechanical damage to the hair. Recommendations
Recall that mechanical damage to the hair is understood as a violation of the structure of the hair due to rough mechanical influences. Therefore, to minimize injury, try to adhere to the following rules:
- Do not use metal combs;
- Do not comb your hair roughly and harshly. When searching, it is necessary to start from the tips, gradually rising;
- Do not use bouffants;
- Try to use tight elastic bands infrequently. If possible, do not tie high tails;
- Avoid rubbing your hair with a towel;
- Don't brush too often;
- Do not comb damp hair because, in this state, they are susceptible and weakened.
Chemical hair damage. Recommendations
Chemical damage to the hair is considered the most devastating, as it affects the hair and can also trigger hair loss.
- Do not curl your hair with a perm;
- Use gentle staining and bleaching methods;
- Trust chemical hair treatments only to experienced professionals;
- Do not use cosmetics for straightening;
- Follow the recommendations of your master, and do not forget about care and active moisturizing.
Thermal damage to the hair. Recommendations
Thermal damage to the hair is characterized by a change in the structure of the hair by exposure to cold or hot temperatures.
- If possible, exclude the use of straighteners, curlers, and curlers. Better replace them with brushes;
- Do not dry your hair with hot air at a distance closer than 30 cm;
- Use hats when going out into the sun or visiting the bath;
- Also, do not forget about hats in the cold season. Low temperatures are bad for your hair.
- As for the general recommendations for hair care, regardless of the degree of hair damage and the factors that led to the deterioration in the appearance of curls:
- If the hair is seriously damaged, then it is worth waiting with dyeing and using a hot hair dryer or flat iron;
- Get into the habit of head massage. Blood circulation will improve, and hair will grow faster;
Before going out into the sun or frost, use protective sprays, for example, with SPF protection;
If the hair is severely damaged, then home remedies may not help. You will have to go to specialized salons, where cosmetologists help restore the hair shaft and its follicle. Among such procedures, mesotherapy, reflexotherapy, personalization, and laser therapy can be noted.
Causes for damaged hair
This element is crucial for the strength of the hair. Copper deficiency can make hair brittle and contribute to the premature graying of hair.
It is associated with alopecia because the hair also becomes brittle due to the lack of zinc.
Diligent styling with curlers, flat irons, hair dryers, and other tools can cause hair to become weak and brittle. After all, they fit into the hair due to thermal exposure, and high temperatures cause severe damage to the hair, making it dry and lifeless.
Substances used in styling products, dyes, and other products can compromise the health of your hair and cause it to become brittle. For example, shampoos containing sulfates and parabens can make hair dry and flaky (since their pH is higher than necessary). Some products (like hair masks) contain formaldehyde, which can irritate the scalp and weaken hair. Hair dyes use dyes and chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide and ammonium, which can damage hair due to their oxidizing and penetrating properties.
Washing your hair too often can also make it brittle. Ideally, you should wash your hair twice a week. Shampooing too often can strip hair of its natural sebum and leave it dry and vulnerable.4. You comb your hair too vigorously.
Too vigorous brushing
This habit can also cause significant damage to the strands.
Hormonal imbalance causes brittle hair. Some birth control pills, menopause, and pregnancy can cause changes in the body that do not affect the condition of the hair in the best way.
Diets lacking in protein and vitamins make hair brittle and dry. Conversely, a balanced diet protects curls.
Diseases such as Graves and thyroid disease affect the hormonal balance, affecting hair growth and strength.
When hair is constantly exposed to rain, wind, heat, and humidity, it can gradually become brittle.
For example, those used to treat psoriasis, cardiovascular disease, eczema, high cholesterol, diabetes, and hepatitis have brittle and dry hair as a side effect. Other treatments that can cause them to be frail include major surgeries - such as gastrointestinal bypasses and transplants.
How to prevent damaged hair – follow the tips below for healthy hair.
Lower the Temperature on Your Tools
We all love straight and smooth hair. Ironing helps us quickly achieve this effect. But few people know that Brushing (a round comb-brush for styling) also injures hair. Hot styling steams the hair and lifts the cuticle (the protective layer), and the temperature dries out the main living layer of the hair. This is how hair loss occurs.
Always use thermal protection.
Before using a heating device on your hair, even a hair dryer, it is always recommended to use a heat protectant that creates a barrier between the exposed hair shaft and the heat. The most popular product is leave-in. Spritz a few times through damp hair and then use a wide-toothed comb to distribute the product from roots to ends. As a bonus, many heat protection serums also tend to detangle the hair, creating less friction and, therefore, less breakage when combed through.
To strengthen the hair's protective barrier so that it is strong enough to withstand heat damage, it is recommended that you use a high-quality shampoo and conditioner to moisturize and detangle your hair. After washing and conditioning, use a light mist to add another layer of reinforcement and protection.
Trim Your Split Ends
While it may seem at first glance that cutting your hair may not help prevent damage from heat damage, in fact, the healthier your strands are, the minor heat damage will be. Once the hair begins to break or split, further exposure to a flat iron or hair dryer will only worsen its condition. Dryness and brittleness will rise higher from the ends, damaging the still healthy part of the hair. You can prevent this by trimming your hair at least once every couple of months, although stylists recommend doing this every 8-12 weeks.
Fix your damaged hair and look amazing
Hair damage is not selective. At the slightest crack, the entire system suffers, so recovery must be comprehensive. First, external factors (mechanical, chemical, thermal) should be minimized. It is also advisable to adjust the diet and strengthen the immune system.
An essential step in hair restoration is the selection of the proper care. It must be delicate but effective, meeting the case's specific needs. Most often, complex procedures are not required. For a noticeable or complete solution to the problem, it is enough to minimize the factors that damage the hair and regularly use shampoo and masks for damaged hair.
Ever wondered why girls are drawn to firefighters, rock climbers, or bandits?
The phenomenon of women's attraction to risky guys has long been known. Moreover, what is valuable is that they are considered primarily lovers, not husbands: shopkeepers, auditors, and programmers have always coped better with creating a stable base for raising offspring. But the instinctive desire to get the genes of a hero is another.
This is a topic related to natural selection. Roman women loved to make love to newly victorious gladiators; in the 20th century, the most beautiful girls went to racers (motorsport was much more dangerous than now). And even today, little has changed: climbers, stunt performers, and test pilots are much more likely to get fast and passionate female caresses. We’re not recommending you change your career, but you'll probably figure out how to use this information. After all, girls are not shy about using retouched photos beyond recognition in dating apps.
Most dangerous male jobs ever
Most of his points are unromantic. We used statistics, but we believe that, in general, the situations are similar. Now you know where it is hardly worth hiring.
20. Policemen. 14 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Yes, the first from the end, surprisingly. Expected deaths due to acts of violence by humans and animals.
19. Mechanics for the repair of industrial equipment. 14 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Large equipment has a complex character: people die not when colliding with it but because of close contact with its details.
18. Cleaners of park areas. 14 deaths per 100,000 people per year. People of this profession, among other things, are responsible for the cleanliness of the roadsides and often fall under the wheels, just walking from the workplace along the road.
17. Inspectors of technical supervision service. 15 deaths per 100,000 people. It would seem that such a peaceful profession - people just check the compliance of structures and devices with regulations. Alas, the most common cause of death for technical supervision inspectors is people or animals.
16. Stonemasons. 17 deaths per 100,000 people. The usual cause of death is a fall. Please note: the list of dangerous construction professions is not limited to masons.
15. Road workers. 18 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Everything is sad and straightforward here: people get used to passing cars and sooner or later fall under the wheels.
14. Masters of landscape architecture. 18 deaths per 100,000 people per year. It would seem, then what? Roll out lawn rolls for yourself, plant flowers But no, cutting tree crowns turned out to be a dangerous occupation, leading to a fall from a height.
13. Construction workers. 18 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Just like a brick: the cause of death is usually a fall from a height or a collision with heavy equipment.
12. Crane operators. 19 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Oddly enough, crane operators rarely make a forced flight from top to bottom on their own. The main reason for their death is a fall and a tower crane. Often this happens due to strong gusts of wind.
11. Regulators. 19 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Like road workers, police officers who work on the road cease to perceive cars as dangerous and lose their vigilance. There are also simply arrivals at the traffic controller standing at the crossroads.
10. Electricians. 20 deaths per 100,000 people per year. The leading cause of death seems banal: an electric shock. Many electricians say they have been hit many times and nothing. Vigilance is dulled, and then suitable physical parameters are superimposed on gouging.
9. Fire inspectors. 20 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Attention: not firefighters, but fire inspectors, that is, people who check the condition of fire safety systems. They often die in traffic accidents, which, ironically, accompany car fires and explosions.
8. Farmers. 26 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Here is an unexpected twist! Cows, lambs, swede-cucumbers - it would seem, what are the dangers? But field workers are waiting for incidents related to agricultural machinery. In particular, accidents on tractors. We had heard something like this before, although we were sure these were stereotypes from jokes.
7. Couriers on cars. 27 deaths per 100,000 people per year. In terms of mortality, road transport is generally far ahead of planes, trains, and ships. And couriers are always in a hurry.
6. High-altitude fitters. 29 deaths per 100,000 people per year. The reason is apparent: the neglect of insurance and, as a result, a high flight with a guaranteed unaesthetic landing.
5. Dustman. the average is 34 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Again, no exotics: no attacks by giant rats, no poisoning with mysterious chemicals. The most common cause of death is a collision with a garbage truck (on the issue of garbage: “Waste legalisation: a brief history of garbage from antiquity to the present day”).
4. Roofers. The average is 53 deaths per 100,000 people per year. Everything is transparent and predictable here, although never romantic: slipped, fell, buried. Of course, roofers must carry out high-altitude work with insurance, but the sense of danger is again over timed.
3. Drilling Engineer. The average is 46 deaths per 100,000 people per year. And this despite the severe penalties for violating safety regulations. It's just that the units and equipment are too heavy; the pipes fly overhead, plus the danger of gas release and all that.
2. Pilots. The average is 53 deaths per 100,000 people per year. It turns out that we are shamelessly lying about the safety of aviation? Fortunately, no. Most of the deaths occur in private aviation, where the pilot is responsible for the aircraft’s pre-flight inspection and overall condition.
1. And on the first place loggers. The average is 111 deaths per 100,000 people per year. The most common cause of death is accidental contact with heavy logging equipment or logs. Alas, here national specificity plays against you: you will be misunderstood if you tell a new pretty acquaintance that you worked at a logging site.
