A disconnected pompadour is trendy right now. Hair is clipped close or faded on the sides and kept long and voluminous on top. This slicked back look is a jazzy quiff hairstyle that looks good on all men despite nationality. If you need a quiff haircut that feels new and different, go with the combed back pompadour that’s definitely trending upward. When it comes to haircuts for men that add length to such face shapes as round and square, this one is a nice, highly-recommended choice.

#2: Haircuts and Hairstyles with Bangs

Bangs can soften any face and add another cute element to a hairstyle. Whether you prefer your bangs spiky or loyal to your flat hair, a hairstyle with fringe is always in style. Choose from classic fringe, messy fringe or straight fringe – if you don’t know what will look best, ask your barber to give you some pointers. From shaving an undercut to trimming bangs into a unique position, this is a style element that is really versatile and fun to wear.

#3: Mohawk Haircut

No, they didn’t disappear with the 1980s – in fact, today’s Mohawk is more modern and versatile than ever before. It’s known for its signature hair strip in the middle – you can make this as thin or thick as you’d like, as well as incorporate various lengths into the final look. A faux hawk is done by clipping the sides of the head and trimming some longer hair up top that can then either flow free or go into a ‘hawk position with some holding gel. A classic Mohawk will leave hair longer on top, while a fade Mohawk often features medium-length spiked hair. Nowadays this cut tends to be very popular among men from all around the world!

#4: Comb Over Haircut

It isn’t just for hiding baldness – young men are sporting this awesome quiff with added volume. Perfect for both curly and straight hair, you can wear a comb over loose or change it into a combed back haircut style if your hair is thick enough. A comb over fade is one more variety, allowing you to have options and styles up top while also showing off cool faded sides. Mens hairstyles can still be unique without being a huge hassle.

#5: Ivy League Haircut

Chances are you experienced this sweet, clean-cut style for at least one school picture day growing up. With a side-parted top and slicked down sides, the Ivy League haircut is truly one of the most polished vintage cuts available today. The barber will cut hair with scissors and include a gradual taper to make hair formal without being too fussy.

#6: Cowlick Hair

A hair cowlick doesn’t have to be frustrating – just work it into a personal style the ladies will love. Coarse hair works best for styled cowlicks, and you may want to consider an undercut to stave off some of the thickness. While cowlicks can be difficult to tame, your stylist will show you how to use proper hair products and upkeep the ideal look with regular salon appointments.

#7: Taper Cut

A classic taper cut involves thick hair on top gradually decreasing in length on the sides and the back of the head. If you’ve ever combed a tapered hairstyle, you know the importance of keeping it maintained with a product and regular shampoos – otherwise your tapered masterpiece will quickly go wild. This is one of the most requested hairstyles for men due to its versatility.

#8: Crew Cut

This cut can be trimmed in several ways. Hair can remain long on top and fade into connected facial hair, or it can just be coifed and spiked for an easy take away style. The barber will use both a razor and scissors to clip this timeless male cut just right. If you tend to have a rounder face shape, go for a crew cut with a bit longer top that will frame yours face and cause it to look slimmer.

#9: Side Part Haircut

A side part haircut will give you a classic and stylish look you can wear everywhere. Following long top trends from the past, the classic side part haircut is divided deeply on one side with the rest of the hair brushed over and set with a product.

#10: Fade Haircut

Low fade haircuts involve shaving just the lower half of the hair, while hair up top is trimmed and shaped, but kept longer. You can also opt for a classic taper fade haircut that is a bit longer than a regular fade, or go for a high fade haircut where practically the whole head is clipped down decreasingly except for a signature piece like a Mohawk. If you wish to have long hair on top, tell your barber ahead of time. In case you are looking for a more casual look, break the mold by getting a fade on the sides only and experimenting with bold styles up top.

#11: Modern Men`s Hairstyle

Boys young and old look wonderful with this perfectly sculpted hairstyle. The trick is to bring equal focus to the top of the head and facial hair. Add some styling product to spike the top hair forward.

#12: The Side Part Cut

The Side Part haircut is similar to the undercut, with the major difference that only one side is cut extra short. This haircut is ideal for those who don’t want to put a lot of time and effort into their look. It is a rather casual haircut that works well with men who have medium-length hair, that can be swept over nonchalantly. The best thing about it is that you can alternate between looks by sweeping the hair towards the side with the undercut, or towards the one with longer strands.

#13: Combined Long-Short Hairstyles for Men

Keep hair sleek and soft without using a ton of product. This can be achieved by incorporating various lengths into your style. Keep one side long and try a tapered cut on the other side. It fades downward until the ear line blends into very subtle facial hair. Men who have thick hair with a slight wave will look best with this sweet boy-next door style.

#14: Short Hairstyles for Men with Angular Fringe

The angular fringe haircut became extremely popular with male fashion models last summer. Since then it has been adopted at a rapidly increasing pace. The long hair on the top is styled at an angle. The guy in the photo above is totally rocking his angular fringe with ombre highlights.

#15: Smart Style

The smart style of this tailored haircut feels as fresh as it looks. That’s because the hair will only have longer lengths on top, while the sides have a blend of shorter cuts. The smart boys cut is extremely versatile and can be styled with lightweight smoothing lotion for extra class, or left wild and free for a more casual appearance. It looks particularly good on men with oval, triangular or square face shapes.

#16: The Side-Swept Undercut

This season the undercut, with its countless variations, has managed to take the crown for “The Most Popular Cut” from all Mohawk-inspired mens haircuts. Although the style was first spotted 3 years ago, it made a real comeback with the “Vikings” series, where protagonist, RagnarLothbrok, sports one of the manliest undercuts ever known to mankind. If you wish to embrace this look, all you need to do is to keep your hair medium length on top and undercut on the sides.

#17: Tame That Mane

If your crazy curls are taking over, it might be the time for a more professional short haircut for men. You can still maintain your texture, adding the structure to your look. Make sure to add definition to the curls with a styling product that won’t weigh them down. It’s an ideal look for a post grad entering the workforce.

#18: Slicked Back Hairstyles

The classic slicked back hairstyle is simple, comfortable and quite dashing. This look can be easily achieved by pulling the hair back with a brush and styling it with some hairproduct. A useful tip would be to cut the hair shorter on the sides, while gradually increasing the length towards the top.

#19: Blown Back Suave

Classically romantic and easy to care for, try a medium length style with a blown back top section. This can add height to your frame and give your lady something to run her fingers through. You’ll only need a light product to keep hair in place, and the thicker your hair, the easier it is to manage.

#20: Dyed Hairstyles

This isn’t a boy’s hairstyle in its own right, but rather a trend. Although, a few years ago, it was considered a taboo for guys to dye their hair, nowadays it has become a normal thing. Men dye their hair for two reasons: they either wish to conceal strands of gray hair, or they simply wish to make a statement. The model in the picture above is sporting a platinum blonde color and a cool side-swept undercut.

#21: Textured Pompadour

For a nice look that’s retro and modern at the same time, go for a deconstructed pompadour. This style features the old school silhouette but reveals some novelty in texture. Modern hair products like dry shampoos and light-weight pomades allow for more natural texture with excellent hold.

#22: Choppy Gray Undercut

Mens hairstyles aren’t just about the cut. Why not go for a new color? Try something different by combining a unique hair color with your natural beard shade. The result is this grungy style that is totally on-trend. Silver is the perfect option for anyone who wants to push the envelope.

#23: Hip and Masculine Haircut

The best male haircuts are all about shape. Talented barbers know how to work with the shape of your head and face to create a masculine style. Squared haircuts create balance and accentuate the jawline. Expert barbers always consider these elements when crafting a new cut.

#24: Suave and Romantic Mens Hairstyle

A side part with a swoop of choppy waves creates an appealing look for boys. This style works especially well with thick, naturally textured hair. You may simply use a medium-hold mousse and blowdry your hair backwards to keep everything in place.

#25: Clean Trendy Style

If you’re into popular mens haircuts, look no further. This style is the perfect combination of everything that’s on trend: thick waves and volume on top, mid fade, line up, and beard. It’s a clean, cool look that isn’t going out of style anytime soon.

#26: Haircut for Thick Wavy Hair

Oh, to be blessed with thick hair! Men who can afford it, should absolutely try this style. Using the hair’s natural texture to create a nice height on top makes for an urban, trendy look. This haircut works great with a minimum amount of products.

#27: Full Retro Pompadour

No need to play it safe. If you’re into retro haircuts, don’t be afraid to go all out. The height of a classic pompadour will completely transform your style and give you tons of confidence. Use a blow dryer and round brush to lift the hair straight up and bend it slightly back.

#28: Long Tousled Top Short Sides

Current hairstyles for men often feature a sharp distinction between the top and the sides, and this look is a perfect example of contrasting lengths. The hair on the back and sides is kept very short, while the longer pieces are styled with a maximum height and separation. A dry shampoo formulated for men will be your new best friend with this style.

#29: Designed Mens Haircut

Shaved lines and designs are the key elements of today’s cool haircuts. This version features an old school silhouette, a deep side part, and an edged fade. Pair it with some hip, urban clothes like a leather bomber or jean jacket and you’re golden.

#30: Low Fade Haircut

The low fade (where the haircut gets short low on the head) is a great option for men who aren’t used to fade haircuts but want to experiment with the trend. Coupled with messy texture on top, the low fade adds a nice edge to the cut without being too in-your-face.

#31: Handsomely Tousled Curls

Modern haircuts for men look great with natural texture. While it can be fun to turn on the blow dryer once in a while, most men need an everyday look that is low maintenance. This Ivy League cut can be easily styled with a little bit of mousse or texturizing cream.

#32: Natural Waves and Parting

A natural side parting in addition to natural texture is quickly becoming a new mens hair trend. Instead of creating perfect side parts, use your hands to easily part the hair. This style appeals to those who value low maintenance but still want a clean, tailored look.

#33: Curved Low Fade Cut

The simple low fade acts as a great base for the thick, full waves. While a high fade creates a statement look, a low fade is a subtler take on the trend. To style the top, apply mousse on washed hair and scrunch the longest sections helping the texture to reveal.

#34: Cool Textured Bangs

Short haircuts for men don’t have to be classic. Instead, try something a bit more stylish—like this asymmetrical cut with sharp bangs. Pay attention to the back view of this cut. The hair is left a bit longer. Also, all the lines have to be super accurate.

#35: Natural Waves with Short Sides

For cool hairstyles that are easy to pull off and even easier to style, try something that isn’t too structured. This look won’t require constant trims, and will grow out nicely. Ask your barber for a neat taper with a long top.

#36: Curled-Over Pomp Hairstyle

The pompadour is dominating in male hairstyles right now, and for good reason. What could be more handsome? You can smooth back your new pompadour, wear it high, or let it fall to a side. This version (with the front curl) is definitely a stylish option.

#37: Short and Spiky Haircut

At their essence, good boy haircuts are simple and clean. Nothing crazy and fancy there. Just some cute spikes and a short, smooth fade. Good haircuts for guys should have a youthful appeal, and this haircut has just that. To style this cut, apply a light hold gel immediately after showering and run your fingers through your hair.

#38: Thick Waves with Designed Part

This cool haircut is a great way to showcase thick textured hair. Volume on top is very on-trend, and for men with thick hair, volume is never a problem! Adding the designed side part and a smooth fade gives the haircut a more modern vibe.

#39: Smooth Slick Backed Hairstyle

For more classic male hairstyles, symmetry is a must. Without a side part, this high fade is perfectly symmetrical. When styling, slick the longer hair back with a pompadour lift for a more traditional, masculine look. Add a perfectly groomed mustache and beard for the win!

#40: Classically Charming Mens Haircut

This cute style is one of the top guys haircuts. The textured waves with plenty of volume create a charming, romantic look that’s hard to achieve with spiky cuts for straight hair. Depending on your wardrobe, this haircut can skew preppy or hip. To keep it looking effortless, use a lightweight pomade on air dried hair.

#41: Soft and Smoky Men’s Hairstyle

Marble hair is not just for ladies, hop on the dye trend bandwagon with a smoky gray hair color. Keeping it dark at the roots and lighter at the ends adds depth and thickness to medium hair.

#42: Long Top, Short Sides and Beard

When people speak about men’s style in a trendy place like Brooklyn, this is the look they are most likely referring to. It’s a delicate balance of modern and retro that results in a style that shows you care about your appearance and keep your finger on the pulse of fashion trends.

#43: Tapered Haircut and Neat Side-Parted Hairstyle

As much as we love seeing wild, untamed locks and man buns, we have to admit that a clean hairstyle will always be considered classier. The example above is nothing more than a styled tapered cut, with a well-defined side parting.

#44: Slicked Back Undercut

Since we’re on the topic of undercuts, here’s another fierce variation of the style. Instead of cutting different lengths for the hair on the top, the model decided to grow it all the same length and sweep it back in order to obtain a classier look. Of course, in this scenario, the beard becomes the center-piece of the ensemble, which the haircut perfectly complements.

#45: Disheveled Hairstyle with Highlighted Fringe

The highlighted fringe has been an all-time favorite hair style for many years. The look was probably trademarked by Nate Archibald (actor: Chace Crawford), in the series Gossip Girl. The idea here is to let the hair grow longer and get the angled layers. This style is perfect for triangular, square and oval shaped faces.

#46: Curly Short Men’s Hairstyle

This haircut style for men with thick hair will show off a strong chiseled face perfectly. The slightly mussed yet totally sophisticated haircut style for men is a good fit for a preppy guy who doesn’t take life too seriously.

#47: Haircut with Varied Length

Men’s haircuts often tend to be pretty mundane – identified by blade numbers and not much else. However, any man can have a cool cut by using a bit of creativity. Opt to go with a longer quiff brushed back up top and hair growing shorter upon descent.

#48: Curly Long Top Short Sides Men’s Hairstyle

Similar to the look above, this hairstyle takes a little more off the sides to make the top stand out more. The disconnected section also draws attention to your beard and helps it to pop more. It’s a different take on the popular shaved styles.

#49: Battle Thinning Hair

A lot of men tend to get thinning hair on the crown, which is especially noticeable with dark-haired men. A shorter length is a way out. Get a nice quiff and well-trimmed facial hairstyle – you will be irresistible!

#50: Curly and Creative Short Fauxhawk

This is a great look for black men who are tired of low top fades. It is a good way to show off your curly hair, while still sporting a fade haircut. The best part is that you can turn this look into a Mohawk by letting your hair grow out a bit more.

#51: Unique Boys Haircuts

Guys of all ages and ethnicities will look their best with this sideswept long top hairstyle. Keep hair long on top and on one side of the head, with the other side being clipped close to the skin. Use your favorite product for extra volume.

#52: Shaved Art

A common misconception with haircuts for men is that things can’t be very modern. As exemplified in this photo, the truth is quite the opposite. Try some shaved art on the sides of your head, including this pattern of the thick and shaved sections. Finely sculpted facial hair finishes off the look.

#53: Cropped and Curly

Curly guys need to take caution with haircuts. Many boys haircuts will restrict curls and cause them to grow out oddly. Instead, embrace your coils with a cut that accentuates them instead of stifling your cute hair texture.

#54: Front Focus

Self-conscious about your forehead? Looking to accentuate your eyes? Whatever the reason, a front focused haircut will keep things looking professional yet fun at the same time. Get the back and sides of your head shaved or closely cut and style the top tresses brushed forward. Short haircuts for men like this one are easily styled. The simplest way not to spend a lot of time in front of the mirror in the mornings.

#55: Creative Haircuts for Guys

This cut uses graduated thicknesses, starting with the heaviest amount of hair up top, followed by a shorter cut middle section and a close cut bottom.

#56: Very Short Sides

Again using varying lengths adds dimension and texture. This men’s short hairstyle is great for guys with thick, straight hair. Add in some facial hair to “scruff” up the look and feel irresistible.

#57: Modern Punk

Taking a cue from 80s and 90s hairstyles gone by, this modern punk cut features spiked hair on top with shaved sides. Get a strong holding gel to keep the height all day long.

#58: Asian Hairstyles for Boys

Asian hair is especially desirable thanks to its thick, soft texture that responds well to cuts and styles. For this look, keep hair up on top, setting it in place with a product.

#59: Side Designs

Rebel against the standard barber fare with your own interpretation of hair art. Endless designs can be carved into the side, giving you the best look for your unique personality.

#60: Sharp Angles

Which one from all existing very short hairstyles for men to choose? Definitely this one! Instead of a rounded or square nape, this cool hairstyle goes for a triangle. Out-of-the-ordinary angled cuts add dimension and interest to hairstyles for men.

#61: Short Haircuts for Men

Curly hair doesn’t mean you have to shave your head – take the courage to grow it out a little and see how awesome you feel. Very short cuts are great for warm weather and convenience, but add some length, when you’re ready to go for a new look.

#62: Side Angle Cut

Long and point cut for cool texture, this hairstyle suggests plenty of hair product to hold it in place. Get the sides shaved to bring the emphasis to the top of the head. Keep your face clean shaven for this one – any facial hair can distract from the cool trick of hair defying gravity.

#63: Long Layers

For this look, get the underneath layer of hair cut very short, leaving the top portion long. Brush it back so the long hair lies on top of the shorter sections, and you’ll have a sleek, international vibe that will win over anyone. Short haircuts for men can still incorporate some length when you opt for a style like this one.

#64: Sideburned Style

Use sideburns to their full potential by blending them into light facial hair. This urban style introduces the sideburns into the cut, bringing a unique but easy look to your daily style. This style looks good on men of all ages, but it’s mostly worn by teens and 20-somethings. It`s a pity. Such men`s short hairstyles are really crazy, don`t avoid them even if you are 30+

#65: Ponytail with Class and Sass

Keep the top thick and long, pairing it with clean shaven sides. When the weather is hot or you need to look a bit more put together, pull it back into a tight ponytail that’s classy and modern. Don’t hold back on the facial hair with this look – adding a little scruff will bring up the maturity factor that’s necessary when rocking a ponytail.

#66: Quirky Quilted Undercut

Nowadays it’s hard to surprise or shock anyone with a hairstyle. But, this intricate look may just do the trick. By decorating your undercut with an all-over quilt-like pattern this might just be the ticket to becoming a trendsetter.

#67: Slick and Scruffy

Probably the most popular men’s haircut this year is a ‘short sides long top’ style. The reason is because it allows you to wear it in a million of different ways, while still adding a bit of toughness to your everyday look. You can slick it back in a sort of hipster manner, or soften your look with a long bang.

#68: Nod to the Nineties

In contrast, a high top fade has been experiencing a major resurgence this year, for reference see the movie Dope. The look was popular in the nineties, but the current takes on the style incorporate graphic designs and creative elements.

#69: Sexy and Simple Black Fade

Sometimes the best hairstyles for men are the ones that are not overdone or forced. This low fade haircut with a crisp facial hairstyle hits all the right notes. It’s a strong yet neat look for a powerful business man.

#70: Short Faded Side Part

Another example of the appeal of a classic cut, this sleek look is elevated by the crispness of the part and sharpness of the lines of the facial hairstyle. It is a universally appealing style that will work well both in formal and casual settings.

#71: Comb Back Curly Hairstyle and Sexy Stubble

There’s something about a five o’clock shadow that is undeniably sexy. Maybe it’s that it gives an air of toughness and hyper masculinity. Whatever it is, you can’t go wrong with incorporating a bit of stubble into your short hairstyle for men.

#72: Spiky Short Haircut with Faded Temples

This is another great clean-shaven option, except this look is perfect for men with thin hair. It’s an easy hairstyle that won’t take too much prep time in the morning. A bit of a light hold product, possibly with a wet look effect, will create a fabulous edgy look.

#73: Desirable Dad Hair

With the current popularity of men with “Dad Bod,” think Russel Crowe and Vince Vaughn, it’s only a matter of time before “Dad Hair” becomes a cool hairstyle for men. The medium look says “I care enough about my look not to embarrass you, but I also won’t take more time getting ready than you.” It’s the perfect balance.

#74: Short Curly Men’s Haircut

While sometimes it’s nice just to let your natural hair do its thing, the wake-up-and-go look might not be doing you any favors. Floppy hair is not the best choice for round faces because it cuts off your visage and makes your look stouter. Simply trimming your strands adds inches and takes off pounds.

#75: Simple Short Haircut for Salt and Pepper Hair

Mature men have it easy: while younger guys are dyeing their hair to get that rugged black-and-white male hairstyle, yours happens naturally. With such a distinct hair color, it’s best to keep it simple when it comes to the cut and style. Besides, you earned that salt and pepper hair and you deserve a regal style that matches the supposed wisdom it conveys.

#76: Cool Pompadour Hairstyle for Men with a Side Part

This rather pretentious hairstyle was first seen in classic movies. Although many men wore the Pompadour hairstyle well back then, it was Clark Gable that truly managed to make a statement with it. We often see it on fashion runways, and hairstylists are saying that this elegant vintage cut is making a strong comeback. That’s probably because more and more men are now wearing tailored suits and require a more sophisticated hairstyle to go with them. The great thing about the Side Part Pompadour is the fact that it works with all hair lengths and it can be easily kept in place with pomade.

#77: Short Back and Sides

This variation of the undercut features slightly longer sides and a rich fringe in the middle. It would be easier to describe it as a combination of Mohawk and undercut, because the top gradually becomes shorter towards the back and is styled as a Mohawk. This particular haircut for boys looks good only on guys with thick hair.

#78: Top Knot Hairstyle for Guys

Another heavily critiqued hairstyle is the top knot. It is basically a variation of the man bun, with the major difference that the sides are cut short, while only the top part of the hair is tied into a knot. We believe that this haircut can look extremely sexy as long as there are more than three wispy strands of hair tied in the knot.

#79: Gelled Pompadour Look

The model seen above is sporting a neat boy’s haircut, styled into pompadour and dyed in platinum blonde. It’s the details that make the difference in this particular hair-style: you will notice that the fringe is uniquely styled to complement the model’s features and eyebrows. Men`s short haircuts like this one always look so formal and stylish!

#80: Cool Haircut for Men with a Blunt Quiff

This example offers a well-groomed yet edgy look. In order to achieve it, you must clearly create a side parting and get the sides shaved. Some consider it a variation of the undercut that is styled with pomade.

#81: Shaggy Men`s Hairstyle

Adam Levine’s creative mess is a result of styling with special products. To lift the top hair with a blow-dryer is a matter of a few minutes. Next use wax to define separate spikes for an extra edge in your look.

#82: Rebellious Hairstyle for Curly Hair

Boys and men with curly hair have two optimal hair solutions: either to cut their hair very short or to go for a tapered haircut with elongated hair on top. Chris Galya opts for the second one. A bit of light hold styling product with matt finish to tousle the top hair and define the texture and your cool, trendy hairstyle is ready.

#83: Trendy Short Hairstyle for Boys and Men

Colin Farrel’s appearance at any event quickens girls’ heartbeats. His chic hairstyles are a part of his self-image of a cool guy.

#84: Sleeked Back Undercut

Justin Timberlake’s look is reminiscent of the 20’s. At the same time his haircut features temple undercuts which associate it with the present day. Use gel or wax to sleek your hair back, but do not overdo with the amount of your styling product. You may also afford a light lift at the roots.

#85: Statement Hairstyle for Thick Hair

If you have thick, dense hair, you may try a hairstyle with a voluminous top and clean sides. It’s going to be especially flattering for guys with round and square faces. The top hair is lifted up during blow-drying. Extra-body finishing spray will hold the lift.

#86: Boys` and Men`s Messy Hairstyle

“Bed hair” on boys and men is a risky hairstyle, but Daniel Radcliffe’s photo shows us that there are positive experiments in this relation. Spray wax is a nice product to define the texture and style the hair mess.

#87: Edgy Short Haircut for Thick Hair

Peter Andre’s hair is graded at the ends for an extra edgy touch. Certainly, all the potential of any haircut is revealed through the right hairstyle. Semi-matt wax is a good product to define the edges and keep your hair up.

#88: Medium Tapered Haircut

Aaron Taylor-Johnson’s haircuts and hairstyles are a rich source of inspiration. The British actor has tried different lengths, coming eventually to the chic short haircut with undercut and temple fade. This is a cool haircut idea for guys with curly hair.

#89: Cool Short Haircut for Boys

Whenever you choose a new haircut, your second thought is “Are girls going to like it?” Chris Colfer has made the right guy’s haircut and hairstyle choices. The short sides and nape, plus slightly elongated hair on top, styled upwards guarantee some extra attention from the opposite sex.

#90: Boys` and Men`s Edgy Haircut

Joel McHale has chosen a haircut variety that flatters him the most. The extremely short temples and razored hair on top are the attributes of the popular male haircut that looks showy, but needs styling. Gel or wax will help you to complete the look and enhance the texture of your hair.

#91: Caesar Cut

If your first impression of this style involves Jim Carrey in a particular film, rest assured a Caesar cut can reach far beyond mediocre comedies and ancient rulers. This unique style is ideal for boys who have long faces and/or broad foreheads – the short bangs bring the balance. If you go with a low Caesar cut, even more of a perceived facial flaw can be concealed thanks to the longer strands left on top. Caesar cuts are also great for those who are experiencing premature balding, as it brings the hair forward and detracts attention away from any sparse patches. A short Caesar cut is another option if you want something simple and sleek.

#92: Mens Undercut

Unlike fade and taper with their gradual decrease of length, undercut features a sharp contrast in length – long/short. It’s almost like two looks in one when you go for an undercut hairstyle. A disconnected undercut is very popular with young men who prefer a trendy look with a shaved underside and long top. Those who want to add an extra edge to their styles will appreciate the sharp line of an undercut. You can also have hair textured or add bangs to the final look if you’re ready to try something different. Even curly undercuts always look really attractive!

#93: Straight and Wavy Short Shag Haircuts

Just as it’s true for women, men can also try a variety of shag haircuts that look nice and different. Straight shag hair is one of the most popular, as it is the most manageable and versatile.

#97: Buzz Cut

A classically youthful style, cut with electric clippers, this is always one of the most popular choices in young mens haircuts. With a low maintenance upkeep, a buzz cut is a great way to maintain short hair without having to go dramatically close to the scalp all over the head. In fact, many of today’s buzz cuts leave hair thicker in specific sections to provide room for shaved designs on the sides or back of the head. If you play sports, a buzz cut is a great compromise in the world of haircut styles which offer convenience without losing at fashion and style.

Although this military-style look is extremely short, it can also work for curly hair, which brings a totally unique feel to an otherwise rigid cut.
