What's a good, long-ish haircut for a guy in London going back into office work after a long period away?

The fellow in question is just under 40 and been working for a decade in a job/field where long hair is not an issue. He needs to get out ASAP due to a variety of reasons, and the best option out of very few is office temping and entry-level or just above type jobs.

Currently the guy in question has unstyled brown hair just past the collarbones (with a few greys). Obviously this won't do. He's had longish hair of one style or another since his teens and would like to keep it long-ish for as long as possible. He knows next to nothing about hair, terminology, or current styles and office culture. Polling friends yields less than definitive advice.

So...given that you can't go wrong with the short-back-and-sides (which he would hate), and different offices will have different expectations, what's a good but still longish hairstyle that won't hurt his chances at finding a new job in today's London?

Pictures and precise names are best.

Thanks!

Is your hair curly or straight?
